Emerald, Copper & Burgundy Wedding Inspiration

001-emerald-copper-burgundy-christmas-wedding-inspiration

Happy December, lovelies! After a few days away working on another project, I’m back, and I have some gorgeous inspiration to share with you this month before we start dipping back into our annual ‘best of’ series. We’re kicking the advent countdown off today with a styled shoot that I have been looking forward to sharing with you for a while, but the colours were so Christmassy that I just had to wait until today. First off, the palette is amazing – rich emerald and burgundy have that beautiful mixture of warmth and depth, but it’s when copper is added to the mix that some modern magic really happens! Add in some beautiful bridesmaid gowns from SBB Directory member Jacoba Clothing. And don’t even get me started on the florals, because OMG they are amazing! Whether you’re planning a Christmas wedding, a holiday table, or just a wedding that makes great use of beautiful colours and flowers (at any time of year, but especially in winter, when jewel tones are particularly appropriate), then this is your palette! Thanks so much to photographer Nadia Basson and her team for bringing us this loveliness today.

Inspiration Board: Berry & Teal

Morning lovely ones! I’m super excited to get started with this week, as we have so much beautiful inspiration to share with you, and lots of ideas for winter weddings, in line with our theme for June. We’re kicking things off, as we usually do, with an inspiration board. This weekend, I found myself pinning a couple of teal images and I suddenly realised it had been AGES since I did a teal inspiration board. It’s one of those colours that can be a little overwhelming, and I’ve been favouring more natural shades. But I do love a teal, especially a deep shade, and I thought it would be perfect combined with plum and burgundy for a rich winter palette. I have to say, I’m loving it!

Inspiration Board: Mulled Wine

It’s time for the last in our series of wine-inspired boards (previously we’ve featured Ros√©, Merlot & Champagne). This time, instead of focusing on an actual wine, I’ve focused on a wine cocktail – namely the mulled wine that’s always such a lovely part of Christmas (at least in a cold climate!). I loved the way that the deep red (a nod to this year’s colour of the year, Marsala) mixes with nutty browns like cinnamon and citrus orange, just like it does in the drink. I actually think this would make a gorgeous rustic winter or autumn wedding ‘theme’ – you could include touches of citrus and cinnamon or star anise in bouquets and table arrangements, or as dried place setting decorations, and all the colours and textures work beautifully together. Plus the orange adds a lot of warmth and punch to the burgundy, and it’s an unusual pairing, so looks fresh and fun. So there you go. Is it just me, or could you do a glass of mulled wine right now? Mmmm.
