There is something so mesmerising about the night sky, and it’s lovely when a passion for all things Celestial is illustrated beautifully in wedding decor and details; including on the day stationery, an embroidered wedding dress and an impressive dried flower crescent moon installation. Add the rustic tones of autumn and the spectacular backdrop of Stoke Park in Northamptonshire and you have one hell of an inspiration shoot to pore over and pin.
A celestial inspired editorial with stunning autumnal colours.
INSPIRATION & STYLING
“To create a celestial / autumnal feel throughout with a crescent moon floristry installation, crystals, decadent fruits on the tablescape, star-covered accessories and dresses. Also to take a gentle inspiration from the lyrics:
‘It’s just another night
And I’m staring at the moon
I saw a shooting star
And thought of you
I sang a lullaby
By the waterside and know
If you were here
I’d sing to you’.
Adapting the idea that the bride has been in a long-distance relationship and they have both been staring at the night sky miles apart only to finally be reunited for their wedding day.” – Poppy Carter
Moon and stars celestial wedding decor and details will always have a special place in my heart. They always look so enchanting however they are displayed and used. I particularly love the use of dried foliage to form the crescent moon over the outdoor tablescape. And who can deny that the pale blue wedding dress with white embroidery isn’t an absolute knockout? As are all the gowns and flowers adorning the pavilion at Stoke Park. There are many more elements to enjoy and marvel at including geode name place settings, and a fabulous cake with iced flowers.
