Blush, peach and gold wedding style edit from The Barns, with Steph Yeo Photography

Happy Saturday everyone! What are your plans? I’m really excited – I’m on a sten do this weekend, it’s going to be brilliant… and we’re outside all day so the sunshine is an absolute bonus!! But can you believe it’s going to be July tomorrow?! Me neither… let’s see June out in style, shall we? Today’s inspirational feature comes from lovely Steph Yeo Photography, based in Yorkshire. The styling is rustic and romantic – a beautiful mix to inspire the growing number of couples celebrating their weddings in converted barn wedding venues and still looking for elegance and a dash of fairytale… it’s beautiful and I hope you love it as much as I do!

With the popularity of barn venues rising for the modern day bride and groom, The Barns in East Yorkshire is a perfect wedding venue. Close to the river bank the venue is spread over two barns, with an outdoor firepit and lots of fairy lights.

The theme for the shoot was ‘rustic fairy princess’, bringing the rustic feel from the barns and wooden decorations and mixing the with blush, peach and gold glamour. As barns are an amazing blank canvas it is easy for a couple to be sucked into the temptation that they need to fill every inch with decoration. The idea for this shoot was to have a few eye catching, statement areas throughout the venue whilst making the most of the rustic natural feel of an amazing venue.

We concentrated on the little details like the ever popular gin bar, oversized words, logs, candles, flower boards, fairy lights and a treat table. Treat tables are going to grow in popularity because of the flexibility it gives a couple to provide their guests with sweet treats. On top of a traditional wedding cake, we had naked cakes, cake pops, donuts and macaroons… something for everyone! The love heart alternative bouquet was also a big hit, with it being available in smaller sizes, perfect for flower girls.

This beautiful shoot absolutely shows that you don’t have to spend a huge amount of your budget on decorations, but that you can make a memorably wonderful impression by concentrating on individual, personal pieces.

Tropical Meets Industrial Wedding Ideas in the Canary Islands

Destination Elopement Colorful Aisle Ceremony Headpiece Bride | Tropical Industrial Canary Islands Wedding Ideas Moana Photography

Today we have the great joy of sharing with you a wedding editorial that comes to us all the way from the white-sand beaches of Tenerife, the largest island of the Spanish archipelago of the Canary Islands. The islands themselves are full of enchanting contrasts, with paradisaical seafront resorts next to rugged volcanic landscapes, and crystal turquoise waters alongside miles of Sahara-style dunes. Echoing this juxtaposition, today’s editorial pairs tropical vibes with industrial edginess, to create something truly unique.

This bride is cool, stylish, and fierce, and the colour palette captivates us with greens, blues, and vibrant pinks – perfect for a destination wedding amidst the waves. With floral cocktails, playful balloons, and an eccentrically colourful ceremony, there is eye candy everywhere – and even more so as day turns to night, with sparkling sandy coves and Martina Dorta headpieces to die for. The night ends with light shows, motorcycles and zebras heads, and – simply put – we’re in love.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy the magic of these boho tropical wonders captured by Moana Photography!

Romantic Paris Bridal Boudoir

The post Romantic Paris Bridal Boudoir appeared first on Chic Vintage Brides.

I love nothing more than a boudoir shoot and I hope sharing styled editorials like today’s helps to show any of you considering booking one for yourself just how beautiful they can be when done right. All the way from Paris it is just perfect with its soft pastel shades, romantic florals and beautiful fine art photography; it captures a timeless elegance and flawless romance that I hope you find inspiring…..

Romantic Paris Bridal Boudoir Shoot

Captured by the talented Jessica Photography, who knew just where to find the most beautiful spots in Paris and helped create a romantic, luxurious and sophisticated boudoir shoot. Here’s a few words from Your Weddingplanner who took on the organization…

The blushing ‘bride to be’ was photographed in the beautiful venue Le Pavillon Dauphine, this hidden gem is just outside the centre of Paris. We made some glamorous boudoir pictures before she changed in to her stunning wedding dress!

The hair and make up was taken care of by The Bridal Artist who created a natural and fresh look. The blonde ‘bride to be’ wore unique handmade lingerie from the Dutch brand La Maison Nouvelle. Whilst our brunette ‘bride to be’ wore the sexy but subtle lingerie from the stunning Dutch brand Chptr-S.

The amazing dress came from a beautiful bridal boutique in The Netherlands; Bloomfeld Luxury Bridal and was created by the upcoming designer Daalarna Couture, located in Budapest. She was wearing gorgeous shoes from Bella Belle Shoes, that gave her the ultimate city bride look!”

A Wild Bride

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.

Location

Federico Lanuto: The Majella National Park is located in Abruzzo, Italy. It offers enchanting landscapes and from the mountain you can easily see the coastline and the Adriatic Sea, that is just 40 minutes far. The venue is wild and unique, perfect for a different, boho soul wedding.

Colour Palette & Design

The colour palette is inspired by the colours of the ground. The design is desert inspired and it plays with contrasting styles and materials.

Tablescape

The table setting is mixed and eclectic. We used a low table, covered with natural linen tableclothes and draped with an uncommon mix and match table runner. The napkins are in natural linen as well, tied in écru natural linen ribbon and refined with thillandsia. The plates are hand made in brown shades, while cutleries are in a precious gold tone.
Glasses are a combination of modern and vintage. We also used vintage candlesticks with a warm tone candles. We completed the table setting with mix and match pillows and a guitar.

Stationery

The stationery is completely hand made. It plays between the contrast of hand made paper and natural linen. Both paper and linen have been coloured with a solution of water and coffee to obtain a used and distressed effect.

Bride

Our bride is an unconventional beauty. We chose a precious hand made dress, covered with crystals and with a long back hand. We decided to combine the dress with a distressed pair of boots, for a high contrast effect.
The make up focuses on the stunning big green eyes of our bride and her glowing skin. We prefered a natural, casual style for the hairstyle.
All the accessories (earrings, rings, bangles) are ethnic/boho inspired and are from our personal collections.

The Flowers

The flowers reflect the desert – boho mood. We prefered a natural style for the big circle arch and for the bouquet and the simplicity of big natural single flowers for the table. We widely used thillandsia to persist to a boho mood.

Cake

The cake is small and simple, enriched with an ombre effect and some small roses.

Photographer

Federico Lanuto captured this styled shoot. He played with the warm tones of the winter light and he was great to give value to every details. He definitely has an artistic point of view.

Jade and Nigel’s heartfelt wedding at Priston Mill, with Martin Dabek Photography

Can you imagine an outside wedding at a working watermill? It sounds blissful… and for Nigel & Jade it really was a dream day. I love the glamour and elegance of their day at Priston Mill, a beautiful venue just outside Bath and Bristol with two gorgeous locations for your wedding and reception – the the barn and watermill are both glorious – and I’m thrilled to say our friend and sponsor Bristol wedding photographer Martin Dabek comes very highly recommended for both, as a regular Priston Mill wedding photographer! Our bride and groom are gorgeous; their day is super elegant with sparkle, their first dance is awesome and you’ll LOVE the last photo in the set…

We had seen his work after our friends had him for their wedding. We did look around and spoke to other photographers, but loved Martin’s work the most so decided he was the one we wanted to capture our big day.

Martin photographed our outdoor wedding in late August last year. From the moment we first met with him to the moment he handed over our album everything was faultless. He was recommended to us by some friends whose weddings he had already photographed. After doing our wedding we have recommended to some other friends who have booked him for their weddings. If you want minimal fuss, professionalism and great pictures then Martin is your man. Cannot recommend highly enough.

We first saw a video montage and we felt full of happiness, love and emotion. I think I did even have a little cry. I rang my best friend after sending her the link and she also said she cried.

Can you describe your wedding in fewer than 10 words?

Classic, glamorous, elegant, fun, and full of love

Your wedding style or theme:

Elegant glamour

Where did you find your suppliers? (Blogs, magazines, recommendations?)

Most of our suppliers were through recommendations and the rest were from reserarching on the internet looking at their work.

What’s your top tip for saving money?

Have your wedding on a weekday, you can have everything you want for a much better price. If you send your guests a save the date in plenty of time I’m sure they will be there. Also when it comes to making your own crafts, invites etc make sure you shop around on the internet as high street stores really can rack up the pounds.

… and which elements of your wedding are you glad you spent more on?

We were undecided about doing flowers on the pagoda and we were looking for a cheaper option but we are so glad we went for it as it looked so beautiful and nothing could have beaten that. Also having the string quartet for the ceromony made the day feel even more special, especially when I heard Pachelbels cannon in D.

Where did you buy or source your wedding stationery – or was making it a labour of love?

The save the dates were made online (magnets), and my friend who is a graphic designer Ellie Trerise made our invites to suit the wedding.

Did you fall in love with your wedding dress?

I absolutely did, I did cry, and I have never felt more beautiful than my wedding day. I loved all the sparkle on the top and I thought the satin was so glamorous with the buttons all the way down the back was very elegant.

Wedding dress designer and bridal boutique:

Mori Lee from White Lace and Promises Bridal Boutique in Weston Super Mare.

Tell us about your accessories: jewellery, shoes and anything else!

Earings from Next as I wanted to wear them again
Shoes from Marks and Spencer’s
Bracelet from Nigel on my 21st birthday
Necklace was a present from Nigel the morning of the wedding from Swarovski

And what did the groom wear?

He wore a steel blue 3 piece suit with ivory waistcoat and dusky pink cravat.

Beautiful bridesmaids: what did your best girls wear?

Elegant dresses from ASOS, 2 in a nude colour and 2 in mauve.

Hair and make-up – did you DIY or hire a professional?

Hired professionals
My make up was Elle Hitchins
My hair was Able Mabel

Describe your wedding flowers. Who arranged them for you? (florist details would be lovely please)

Bramblewood flowers. They were amazing, beautiful caila Lily’s, and roses. I had an amazing tear drop bouquet and the bridesmaid with a single bouquet. They matched the bridesmaids dresses. We also had caila Lily’s on the end of the isles and the jewel in the crown was the flowers decorating the arch. It was perfect. Claire did an amazing job.

General styling – did your venue need much decoration?

Not really, the buildings were beautiful as they were. An outside wedding at a working watermill all we added were flowers and chair beads, I also had a vintage dressing table that I decorated with a mirror, decanters and our guestbook so it had that old Hollywood glam feel to it.
The barn we decorated with table flowers, candles, fairy lights and some childhood photos.

Crafts and makes – tell us about any homemade elements of your wedding… did you enjoy them?

My bridesmaids and I made salt dough heart placenames and they were wedding favours. We also made all the chair beads for the ceromony and wedding reception. We made confetti cups, also organised a small quiz for each table to see how well they knew us, the men had scratch cards and women mints for them as extra favours. We also made our own table flower decorations too. I loved making it all and also gave me quality time with my bridesmaids which was lovely.

The wedding cake: what kind of cake did you choose and why?

Well we love Bristol and especially the Clifton suspension bridge, so we decided we wanted 2×3 tier cakes that held a model of the Clifton suspension bridge. We kept the colours of the theme and Nigel’s mum made the sponge cakes and her cousin made the model, he even did a model boat as an extra surprise. We only saw it all the night before and were blown away by how amazing it all was. Angela and Rob did an amazing job.

Entertainment: any musical recommendations, surprises or treats?

I had booked Bravo wedding singing waiters which was such a great surprise and everyone loved it. We would definitely recommend them as after the main course everyone starts to relax and get into a food coma so this livened everyone up and the atmospheare was brilliant.
We also booked Halflight as our band for evening. They were excellent and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Words of wisdom: share your best piece of advice for other couples:

Relax and enjoy the planning as it only happens once, we loved every minute and it brought us closer to our family and friends and I realise that that’s the most important thing, to celebrate and be with the people you love.

What’s the best thing about being married?

Knowing that whatever life throws at us we will be there for each other no matter what, and we can look at our wedding day as a truly beautiful and magical day.

Hellebore and Quartz Crystal Wedding Styling

I am in awe of this beautiful hellebore and quartz crystal wedding styling concept. Every time I look at these pictures I can’t help but smile, and I hope they make you feel the same way.

Colourful geodes are a huge wedding trend – they are everywhere – so it’s lovely to see inspiration focussing on white rock quartz crystal to showcase a twist on the modern form. With a light palette of white with the softest blue and dashes of pink, these styling details are oh so pretty. Everything is very minimal, simplistic and romantic.

Hellebore, sometimes known as the Christmas or Lenten rose, comes in a variety of shades. They make the most wonderful addition to this styling concept, used on the table design, bridal bouquet and also in the bride’s hair. Another flower used is the snake’s head fritillary, which always excites attention due to its highly unusual form; a large dropping head (the snake’s head) and all over checked pattern. I’m so excited to see these used in this shoot as I was admiring them at Gardeners World Live just a few weeks ago!

Wedding table styling with hellebore and quartz crystals

Pure white linen elegantly drapes on the floor giving the tablescape a soft, romantic look, and the place settings with beautiful marble chargers, white china and single stem hellebore complement the cute glass vases of flowers.

The bridal style in this shoot is soft and pretty too. The bride wears a romantic long tulle skirt in the palest of blue, teamed with a lace half-sleeve, short top. If you’re having a winter wedding and want to wear something warmer, you’ll love the beautiful cable knit jumper worn with the skirt. I’m totally loving the groom’s style too, with his tweed suit teamed with red shoes!

These wedding styling ideas are so beautiful, and I’m sure you’ll be pinning lots of these incredible pictures by Diana Frohmueller…

Delicate and Soft

“Our inspiration for this shot came from white rock quartz crystals. We developed inspiration for a simple yet elegant couple who love a minimalistic style with a romantic touch. Away from the trendy geode theme seen everywhere lately, we wanted to create a delicate and soft theme with the main focus on white rock crystals, the main topic of the design.

“Our bride’s two-piece wedding dress combines a floral lace crop top with a tulle skirt in an amazingly soft blue. The dress comes with a second skirt you can add on top of the tulle skirt as a second layer. Spring evenings can still be quite chilly. The bride combines the dress with beautifully hand-knitted tops made of luxurious merino wool.

“Two stunning headpieces feature – a hair comb and hair clip – beautifully embellished with flowers. The base of hellebores combines with snake’s head fritillary.”

Crystal Inspired

“For the colour palette we used many shades of white, blue and grey to reflect the colours of the crystals. The colours and structure of the crystals inspired the amazing calligraphy stationery.

“Spring flowers like hellebore, featuring pops of a pink blush and green, matched the colour of the delicate snake’s head fritillaria. The loose, modern bridal bouquet combines these flowers with some branches that already show some green leaf tips. The soft colour palette complements the clean space of the location perfectly.

Minimalistic and Delicate

“The table design comes in a quite minimalistic and delicate design. We chose tableware designed by London-based designer Bodo Sperlein for DIBBERN Fine Bone China. The Carrara collection reveals the unique decorative qualities of marble. Neutral in colour with an organic distribution in decoration across the surface of each piece, this collection offers a plethora of understated variety to any table setting and matched our theme perfectly, since marble and rock crystals are both made of the same substance, quartz.

“To the tableware we combined vintage wine glasses made of smoked glass, and silver-pleated cutlery completes the look. Thin, long candles fixed to rock crystal pieces look like extension of the crystal points.”
