Together with industry experts, renowned stylists and wedding dress designs by Maggie Sottero and Nicole Spose, have brought to life a beautifully styled shoot set amongst alluring lavender fields.
The talented team who helped to bring this elegantly ethereal vision to life have written up a style guide especially for couples use as inspiration for their own magical day.
The style turned out to be a boho meets soft purple with that much-needed elegant touch brought in by the gold accents.
Colours: Shades of purple ranging from deep to pastel blended with soft pinks will add that feminine feel while coupling that with crisp whites and creamy colours along with gold will contribute that perfect touch of contrast and highlight. The green adds that sense of vibrancy and should be present through the floral arrangements and natural surroundings so as to not overdo it. Adding touches of metallic throughout your special day will add that sophisticated and modern element.
Décor &Texture: A traditional wooden table adds that charmingly rustic, relaxed and countryside elegance feel and it allows for an intimate gathering that isn’t overly formal. Set against it lightly washed lavender fabrics for that soft, romantic feel. For that hippy, casual feel that really welcomes your guests, go with an elaborately unique patterned rug to set the base, then layer it with fur rugs, sequin and tasseled handmade throws, a range of cushions inspired by Moroccan prints, thickly stitched accessories and metallic gold ottomans. Find inspiration from the heart of Morocco and bring it into the 21st century.
Centerpiece & DIY: Dare to be different and to really leave an impression on your guests. Cow skulls may seem a little too eccentric, but you can glam it up to your own liking and add your own touch to it. We purchased one from the market for £50, spray painted it white and the horns gold, glued on the lace and embellished it with peals, diamantes, jewels and an earring dropping from its forehead. We made it romantic and feminine in our own way.
Tablescape: Decorate the wooden table with the geodes and gems that will well and truly stand out – think purple, rose or clear quartz and amethyst. For that structure, add geometric vases and candleholders. For the platting, go with white gold edged paired with gold cutlery wrapped in ripped soft lilac silk ribbon with gold scripted ink name tags attached layered on a lilac cloth.
Wedding Dress: Picking the dress is perhaps the biggest moment for you in all of the wedding planner. The Nicole Spose gown with the lace backing, features a subtly embellished bodice with an illusion neckline, beaded floral embroidery, and delicate lace appliqués that cascade into a tulle skirt for the bride who wants to really make a statement.
The Sottero and Midgley gown is a chic lace wedding dress; accented with spaghetti straps; demure illusion back and V-neckline, finished with delicate pearl buttons is for the bride who wants something soft and light.
The long-sleeved Maggie Sottero gown classic sheath wedding dress features embellished illusion lace over jersey & atop a feminine sweetheart neckline and long sleeves with hand-placed lace appliques is for the bride who wants a boho meets elegant look.
As relaxed as this wedding theme is, you do want to really draw your guests in with that luxe element. We recommend gold foiled and laser cut invitations, a favourite amongst the most stylist and modern of couples. Featured in this shoot, was our elaborately detailed gated card with you and your partner’s personal monogram laser cut into the fold out and held together by a sweet lotus flower sticker. For a less over the top and more chic invitation, there is the floral framed laser cut design that has a more bohemian feel.
