Woven Elegance Wedding Inspiration – this explains exactly the mood of this styled shoot by a talented team of professional South-African wedding service providers. Today on Vivacious Weddings we showcase a styled shoot that can easily be transformed into a real wedding. It’s no secret that we love a neutral color palette with touches of amazing colors, just like this shoot. The use of dry flowers and in contrast the use of beautiful fresh flowers really make the floral designs stand out.
With the combination of creams, soft pinks, peaches and a pop of aubergine it creates e feast for the eye and the dream combination for the modern bride. The soft elegant wedding stationery designed by Secret Diary fits in perfectly with the theme of this shoot. The golden touches give the shoot an elegant, yet very modern feel. All the different color combinations and textures create a feast for the eye.
The talented wedding photographer, Lily & Wild Photography photographed this gorgeous styled shoot into images that aren’t just beautiful but also tells a story. Enjoy this styled shoot by scrolling down for loads more pictures and to read more about this amazing styled shoot.
The inspiration behind this shoot:
To create a striking balance between boho charm and modern elegance. We used a blend of boho inspirations which created beautiful textures and then added modern elements to bring them into contemporary styling.
The Wedding Gown:
The main gown was selected as we felt the embroidered bodice mirrored the floral flair of the pampas grass which was the main feature whilst the fitted skirt was sleek and elegant. The second dress was a flirty, fun but comfortable ensemble for the reception which also complimented the feathery feel of the pampas.
I got the inspiration from the name of the shoot as well as from the perfect hiring company MUSE which suits this look 100%. Their woven mats and vases are incredible, and their macramé arch drape is amazing for that totally different look from the norm which ties in with the macramé runner on the table. The ombre glassware picks up the color of the fresh flowers as well as the dried.
The little ottoman with the woven seat brings in more “woven” element with the velvet pinks of the chairs and other ottomans.
I used a combination of beautiful big dahlias with the soft and delicate lisianthus and garden roses. We used a combination of creams, soft pinks, peaches and a pop of aubergine/burgundy to catch the eye. Alo included the dried ferns, bougainvillea, and branches to complement the whole boho theme as well as the pampas grass to pull through the look of the wedding dress.
Smaller more intimate weddings are trending, and we chose Rooftop on Bree to provide a modern blank canvas. At the same time, we loved the contrast of the sleek modern lines softened by the feathery feel of the pampas and the plushness of the velvet creating great textures and allowing the colors to pop.
Advice for couples planning their wedding:
Don’t be scared to mix elements from different looks to create a blend of all things you love. Downsize the overall wedding to save costs and then spend the money on what parts mean the most to you. Book an on the day coordinator to save you stress so you can relax knowing all the elements that you spent months planning all fall into place. Trust your vendors, they know what they talking about, it’s not their first wedding so let them guide you.
