Style Edit: City of Love
Aug 7, 2019
August is here, can you believe it?! Officially still the most popular month of the year to get married with many couples seeking blue skies, outdoor ceremonies and the warmth of late evening sunshine. However, with the unpredictability of our good old British weather, it’s not surprising that many couples now aspire to say their “I do’s” overseas. Whether that be amongst the white washed architecture of Santorini or on the sun soaked shores of the Caribbean, there’s so many incredible options to choose from!
What about a city location? We can’t think of anything more romantic than celebrating your wedding day in the “City of Love” – Paris!
Steeped in chic architecture, charming cobbled streets and alluring chateaus and villas – we couldn’t turn down the invitation of collaborating with an amazingly talented team of industry suppliers on a styled editorial shoot to provide inspiration to all!
With views of the Eiffel Tower from Place du Trocadéro; a pretty picnic in Jardin des Tuileries and a stroll around Musée de Louvre, we wanted to capture the romance and intimacy of opting for this European alternative.
A fresh pastel colour palette with rose gold accents and geometric shapes built the foundations to our styling. We chose a relaxed picnic setting and sourced fresh bread and croissants from a beautiful patisserie for an authentic feel.
Travelling with a wedding cake was probably the most nerve racking part! Nobody wanted to be the criminal that dropped, crushed or destroyed the cake in any way but it made it in one piece (unlike the macaroons… oooops!) and therefore it deserved prime position in the setting; towering out of the picnic basket! After all, who cares about nibbles if there’s cake on offer?! What better way to make those pastel colours come to life than stunning David Austin roses provided by Frenchie Loves Flowers.
Finally, those all important stationery details by JB Creatives – never underestimate just how much impact this can add to your day. Whether it be your seating plan, table numbers or place names. Introducing complementing tones and textures provides a real personal touch to your styling.
