The final part of our three part Autumn Inspiration series looks at details you could use to complete either our 1920’s or country bohemian looks.
From stunning candlesticks in shades of bronze to the warm glow of candle light. These colours are the epitome of Autumn and signify the changing of the season. Decanters and cut glass add elegance along with the beautiful calligraphy done by hand. Burgandy hand made papers give a rustic homemade feel whilst continuing with the autumnal colour scheme and everything is tied together beautifully with the orange pop of colour in the grooms button hole and in the bridal bouquet with wheat and sprays of yellow combined with oranges and reds.
Love what you’ve read here. Why not check out the 1920’s styling of our first look in Part 1 or get some bohemian inspiration from our second look in Part 2 to match the beautiful details shown here.
Now you’ve already met Mary and Michael from their earlier engagement shoot post (which you can check out here) so it’s time to share a little of their relaxed wedding inspiration at the Skiddaw Hotel, Keswick, Cumbria.
As a couple who love the outdoors and especially visiting the Lake District, Keswick was the obvious choice for their destination wedding. Their dream was to take their guests on a cruise of the beautiful lake Derwent right in the heart of the beautiful English Lake District.
Saxophonist, Paul Palmer, who was a surprise for Mary, organised and kept secret by Michael, played during their ceremony and their Lake Cruise.
Mary chose a colour scheme of navy and blush pink and as they travelled to the Lake District for their wedding, silk flowers were chosen for the bouquet and table top arrangement. Their stationery was mounted on ordinance survey maps and tables were named after Lakeland Fells further adding to the theme of the day.
One often overlooked area of a wedding is that of the groom and his preparations on the day. A few years ago very little thought was put into the grooms attire, as long as the colours co-ordinated with the bridal party everything was fine and images largely focused on the bride. Fast forward a couple of years and grooms are putting much more importance on the wedding being their day too and using this to express their individuality and personality. More time is now being taken documenting the grooms preparation from getting dressed, checking that his tie is straight, waistcoat fastened, and watch is on to those precious / hilarious moments when he is helped with his button hole. Here are a just a selection of images grooms portraiture. Enjoy.
