Don’t you just love how the brides black wedding dress draws your eye against the serene desert-like backdrop? As does the immense horseshoe floral arrangement consisting of pampas grass, eucalyptus and red roses, which I’m certain you’ll be pinning right now 😉 You can’t help but marvel at the beautiful feminity and masculinity from this same-sex couple too, expertly captured, and wonderfully natural. Love most definitely wins.
Whimsical, feathery and ethereal, pampas grass makes a real statement when used as part of a wedding. Due to its size, it frames other florals and greenery perfectly; and due to its neutral muted tones, it contrasts beautifully with wedding greenery such as eucalyptus. It fits into so many styles of wedding … rustic, boho, vintage, modern, romantic … here are a few ideas of how you can incorporate it into your nuptials.
I absolutely love it when a bride and groom fully embrace a theme. Especially when the theme is a glamorous, roaring twenties, Great Gatsby inspired wedding.
Along with the planning and styling skills of Confetti a Colazione, Bride and groom, Elisabetta and Marco absolutely nailed all the little details. From Elisabetta elegant silk Jenny Packham gown, through to the Art Deco wedding stationery, and even serving their champagne drinks reception in coupe glasses.
All of the magic was captured by Matrimoni all’Italiana, who has made me swoon with delight over every detail documented at this Italian destination weddding.
Friday fact for you: Six out of ten people wear glasses, yet we rarely see our brides or grooms donning their spectacles on their big day, so this ‘geek chic’ inspiration from Rose & Dandy and Lola Rose Photography is most definitely a welcome sight. If you pardon the pun!
The beautiful bride looks über cool in vintage inspired gowns, (the high neck and polka dot tulle number is making me weak at the knees), and the Fifth and Spring socks worn with blue suede block heels looks both stylish and comfy.
The location for all this immense style was the gorgeous Swiss Garden Fernery & Grotto at Shuttleworth, which was filled with pampas grass, hydrangeas and gerbera floral arrangements, and coloured goblets, taper candles and platter tablescape. All of which will definitely get your pinning fingers twitching. Enjoy.
Calling all free spirited boho brides, this gorgeous inspiration planned and styled by Antonia Luzi at The Majella National Park (Abruzzo, Italy) is for you.
We’ve fallen head over heals for the immense moon gate and Persian rug focal point. Adorned with the most beautiful peach flowers, dried grasses and foliage, and sitting very pretty amongst the natural location. Plus the brides dirty boots and messy hair wild look, really encompasses what being free is all about.
There’s plenty more to swoon over and pin too, thanks to the gorgeous captures by Federico Lanuto Photography, including an intimate tablescape and simple, but decadent single tier wedding cakes. Not to mention some gorgeous uses of hoops as menus, table plans and dream catchers. All the heart eyes.
There’s nothing like natural beauty, and Upthorpe Wood in Suffolk is full of it. A gorgeous dry hire venue perfect for adding all your own unique touches. Whether that be boho, festival, rustic or any style your heart desires, the possibilities are endless.
The lovely Georgia Rachael Photography took inspiration from the surroundings, and together with other talented wedding suppliers created the perfect clearing of gorgeousness. There’s pampas grass, a wooden altar and the sweetest table scape full of taper candles.
Boho bride Bianca looks mesmerising in a lace gown and braided up do which I have a feeling you’ll be pinning within an inch of its life.
Natalie & Tony’s wedding day is just brimming with quirky and thoughtful details. They’ve used plant of the moment, pampas grass, to perfection – combined with rich berry toned blooms and gold details, the final look is relaxed, rustic, stylish and very inviting. Natalie looks gorgeous in her vintage inspired gown and her stunning headpiece adds a little touch of glamour to proceedings.
Images come from the lovely Nichola at Lemonade Pictures who has truly captured all of the fun. As well as the magic of their stunning venue. Check out the ceilings! What a place to hold your wedding reception…
For today’s final feature, we’re heading to the coast, for an atmospheric inspiration shoot that incorporates several of our favourite things. Pampas grass, moongates and puppies. Could this actually be what heaven looks like?! The styling is from the lovely Elle at The Artful Event Co, who brings her industry-leading styling experience to a new venture. And it’s safe to say after seeing this shoot – we’re excited! If you’re looking for a wedding stylist then do get in touch.
The whole shoot is a visual treat. The colours and textures are just so perfect for the season, reflecting all of the natural tones in the flowers and coastal surroundings. Olivia has captured everything beautifully too, the moody skies, the chemistry between the couple and of course, her adorable puppy Milo (who quite frankly is the star of the show). Enjoy this one beauties, I’ll just be over here, dreaming of pampas grass and puppies…
This wedding is about to blow your mind, so make sure you’re sitting down (!) and have plenty of time to devour it. Nathalie and Benjamin’s wedding is styled to absolute perfection, with lots of foliage, white blooms and pampas grass (which is all over the internet at the moment – Nathalie and Ben were clearly waaaaaay ahead of the curve). Nathalie looks utterly ravishing in Rue de Seine, a true bohemian bride.
The couple’s venue is the incredible Godwick Hall, which never fails to make me weak at the knees, the brick, the lofty ceilings, the stairways, the wooden trestle tables – honestly if you’re looking for a venue in Norfolk then you absolutely must check it out. Images come from Darina Stoda, who is one of my favourite photographers (yes, I am allowed favourites), so it’s a real treat to share this beauty of a wedding day with you all. Hold on to your hats babes…you’re going to love it!
