A little Italian inspiration for your day. From beautifully designed macrame light shades, to the neutral colour scheme, to rustic table decor, we’re loving every inch. Each aspect works perfectly against the moody vibe of the Monastery - and we can’t get enough of that dress! With its stunningly intricate lace design and back leg split, it is the perfect combination of sexy and chic. We also just love the way the macrame light shades hang perfectly above the table as if floating… gorgeous! 


A luxury Italian inspired wedding

Inspiration & Styling

The styled shoot had the most amazing vibes of an Italian monastery Dream! With Neutral tones that sung of tans, creams and blush. Locally sourced stone for the place settings and dried grasses in the unique centre pieces. The free standing table set up had the most exquisite chandeliers adding in that boho vibe. luxury couture dress by Berta, Christine and Ross were the perfect couple for the Italian Themed wedding shoot giving us all of the romantic feels while they walk through their table set up- I love the cheer and bouquet in the air shot which really shows their love! The backdrop of Gloucester Blackfriars was the perfect setting to house the theme, styled and hosted perfectly by lark.

Macrame Light Shades 

Here at Rock My Wedding, we’re loving a bit of macrame. We love the boho vibes it brings to a wedding, and it’s also something you could do yourself! The usage of the macrame light shades within this inspirational shoot works perfectly against the stone and dark lighting of the monastery. Macrame provides that rustic yet chic look to decor, and it can be utilised in so many different ways! Have a little Pinterest search for all your needs… trust us, you won’t regret it.
