A while back, I created an autumn inspiration board in beautiful jewel tones, and our friends at Green Goddess flower studio got in touch to say that they loved it, and that they just happened to be working on a wedding using a similar palette. Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to see it! And when Tina & Kevin’s relaxed, rustic, navy, olive and russet autumn celebration popped into my inbox a few months later, it was everything I imagined. Rich, jewel-toned decor, a boho lace wedding dress, amazing florals (of course!) and beautiful pics by Wrensch Lombard. But here’s something I only found out when I read Tina’s story – this fabulous fete took its style cue from a suit! Which just goes to show, inspiration is everywhere, and when you find an element for your wedding that you love, you can totally build on that element to create a colour scheme and design that you adore.
Just a couple of days ago, I was saying how grooms in non-black suits were a huge trend for 2015, and here to prove it is today’s handsome groom in a gorgeous watermelon pastel. It’s the perfect complement to a wedding that is as simple as it is beautiful, with summer pastel flowers and soft fabric banners fluttering in the wind. And let’s just take a moment to appreciate bride Rita’s look, which is the epitomy of simple sophistication. Her portraits by photographer Wrensch Lombard are just breathtaking, as are all the gorgeous pictures of Rita and Kirchual’s happy day. Enjoy!Read More
