Fairytale Opulence at Charlton House, Somerset

A beautiful inspiration piece here to get your heart eyes locked on to.  “Fairytale Opulence. This one is for the dreamers and the hopeless romantics.” describes Fine Art Photographer Liz Baker of this wedding. It truly is fairytale like in colours and indulgence. 

Charlton House, Somerset is a stunning venue with grand rooms and decadent decor.  Luxe Florist Fleur Provocateur highlights and enhances the venue with her spectacular florals and the table display is one that Pinterest dreams were made of. 

There are lessons in this piece to be learnt in using your venues features to their maximum potential. If they have mantles, fireplaces and such, adorn them with florals. Intimate table dressings can be as elaborate as you want and where possible use the colour scheme of your wedding to compliment that of your venue. The chairs at the table here make my heart sing.

Rock My Wedding 2011 Inspiration: Whimsical, Charming and Handmade.

Well good afternoon readers, happy Monday, (almost a juxtaposition, I know) and welcome to Planning Week on Rock My Wedding.

We’ve paid a lot of lip service to 2011 being a new year so far and that might have been because we have been so busy planning new and exciting things for the year ahead. Once upon a time, wedding trends were long running due to the time it took to convert Real weddings to print media and the treacle like attitude to change. Online media and wedding blogs have changed all that and new trends are now evolving at a rate of knots.

As we said this Saturday, it’s got to be your day your way, but sometimes it’s difficult to figure our where exactly you lie in the sea of inspiration thrust at Brides-to-be from every angle. It’s also difficult when you see your 100th sweetie bar to fathom how to really make it your own. So our mission this week was to contact our favourite wedding planners for their take on inspiring you for 2011. The brief? ‘Unique, fresh inspiration‘.

Each planner has their very own style of course, and so we’re kicking off the week with Josie from Savoir Weddings and her ideas for a Whimsical Wedding.

Over to you Josie!

Savoir Weddings Wedding inspiration for 2011 Brides.

The loveliest ideas from the world wide web….

My Key words for 2011 Inspiration…? Whimsical, cute, romantic, fun, playful, charming, sweet, relaxed, and handmade.

The handmade, DIY wedding is going to be even bigger in 2011 and lots of what we’ve seen in 2010 weddings will still be popular. And of course, we’re still going to be massively influenced by weddings across the pond.

Glittery, sparkly, embellished dress detail…


So girly and pretty but with a little bit of edgy glam…


Hanging objects as wedding decor…


Streamers, mirrors, photos, lampshades… anything goes with this trend…


Handmade fabric bunting…

In 2011 it’s less about the shabby chic and more about the mismatched fabric squares…


Dessert bars…

More variety and often more purse friendly especially if you get your gran baking…


Hearts

Always synonymous with love and perfect for wedding styling…


Silhouettes

Perfectly romantic and wonderfully original…


Antique keys

Very Secret Garden and perfect for a summer wedding…


My advice for styling your wedding? Be inspired by what you like and whether it fits your wedding, not by whether it’s en vogue or not. Because in 30 years time when you look back at your photos everything will look dated (the 80s anyone?). What won’t date is how happy you look together, and that’s the best ‘trend’ there is.

Josie

Thanks Josie! So, will you be taking any of these ideas for your wedding or have you already planned to incorporate them?

Do share!

Yours Truly,

Rebecca
