This board is inspired by last week’s beautiful Monique Lhuillier gowns. The soft tones of this edgy gown teamed with gorgeous coffee coloured pearls and cream merino wrap are just about perfect to me!
This board is all about keeping a neutral colour palette and playing with different textures. I love how the use of soft golds and creams give a slight vintage feel. And isn’t that picture of the library steps just amazing?

At the end of last week, I was looking over my design concepts and realised that they all had very strong colour palettes and design themes. So I felt it was time for a change.
Today’s board is all about the beauty and elegance of a ‘classic’ wedding. With a much more subtle theme and palette, this board is influenced by the timeless elegance of the 1950s. The palette is all about ivories, antique golds and caramels whilst the celebration itself is wonderfully refined with warm lighting and perhaps jazz music?
As I collected photos for this board, I just knew I wanted a Vera and this a-line beauty is just the ticket. I love the understated beauty of this gown and I can imagine guests gasping with glee as the blushing bride takes her firsts steps down the aisle. And just how beautiful is that hairstyle? And the stunning calligraphy (oh how I wish I was a guest a Darcy Miller’s wedding)? I could go on…and on.
I have to admit that I find this style of wedding truly breathtaking. I know it’s popular and therefore could lack personality but I just love it’s elegant simplicity, timeless glamour and abundant romance.
