We often get asked 'But how do I make sure my wedding doesn't date?'. And if you're asking the same question, it could be worth considering having a black and white wedding. Keeping it monochrome. Simple, stylish and elegant. This inspiration shoot features Recommended supplier Fiona Kelly on the photography and is the stuff black and white wedding dreams. Over to Alicia Marie who planned and styled the shoot to tell you more.

Black and white wedding inspiration with hints of gold.

With the rise of beautifully intimate weddings, our aim was to create a simple yet classic design that could stand the test of time and work across all seasons for couples planning their special day.

Not your average black and white wedding inspiration

The timeless tablescape was brought to life using a colour palette of crisp white, elements of gold and subtle touches of black to create a classic yet modern dining experience. We wanted to use a neutral colour palette that would not date and could be used in different spaces and seasons of floral variety.

The perfect backdrop

I chose to work with Felisiti Greis to create timeless bridal attire as I love her understated elegance. She created the bespoke bridal pantsuit which evokes city-styled luxe.

The venue’s pillars were the perfect backdrop for this simple yet stunning suit.

The stunning, floor-length veil was hand-made by the amazing Visionary Veils, which married perfectly with the bridal attire, oozing luxury.

Black and white wedding flowers

The flowers, created by the amazing Ali of Bloomologie brought an air of elegance and luxury to the ambience. Tying together the black and white wedding colour palette perfectly with the use of accented black in the white petaled anemone and crisp white roses and ranunculus.

The choice to create an arch of white cherry blossom & Queen Anne's lace encapsulated the overall design perfectly, infusing a contemporary yet romantic feel.

Capturing the details

Fiona Kelly, the Photographer, captured the scene beautifully with her light & airy style. Her relaxed, natural style allows for authentic memories to be captured perfectly. All photos are imbued with happiness and love!

Stationery was created by the lovely Dimitria Jordan, crafting a plethora of stunning stationery, including invitation, menu and place name items.

Finally, would it really be a wedding without an indulgent cake? Sugared Saffron really was the cherry on the top with her show-stopping creation. Complete with gold and hand sugared elements, it really did complete the classic yet luxury concept.


I was delighted to be a part of bringing our vision to life! Watching the overall style and concept being translated into something tangible really is a testament to everyone's hard work, effort and sheer talent. I was honoured to work with such lovely and creative suppliers.
