Hybrids are in
and I don’t just mean carsI call this one ‘bold-modern-botanical-meets-traditional-city’, it's a bit of a mouthful but it works.
Patterns have been creeping onto the wedding style radar for some time now and are having quite a moment – unexpected and bold for a modern wedding with a difference. Throw out the rulebook out of the window, it’s not for you.
Keep it lightThere are so many dresses out there – how on earth are you supposed choose? Is there a right one for you? Throw tradition out of the window with a dress that’s gorgeous but so easy to wear – and that goes for bridesmaids too! Light and airy gowns make an incredible impression and dancing all night? No problemo.
Full colour, high impact, wow-worthy momentsDon’t want to blend in with the crowd? Try a full-colour explosion of beautiful blooms for your wedding to get your guests excited. Mixed with a palette of neutrals and gorgeous textures you’ve got a modern and elegant style to work with. Unusual blooms give a wildflower-esque feeling, bringing the outside into this traditional City venue.
Let’s not mention tacky tiarasBling has had its day and given way to more subtle sparkle, tones and textures. Jewellery doesn’t have to be totally traditional any more, create a natural feel with birds, flowers and textural detail complimenting the florals. Keep hair accessories delicate and intricate to beautifully compliment the detailing on the gown and shoes.
Sugared almonds: like a slap in the face, for your mouthWhile pastel palettes are pretty there’s a special place in our hearts for bold, bright colours and patterns that make an impression. There’s no better way to infuse your celebration with a modern style, particularly in a venue that could be quite traditional. Keep your wedding vibrant and youthful with a hand painted camouflage cake and beautiful watercolour touches in the stationery suite, reflecting the one of a kind statement wallpaper in the venue!
Bright lights, big CityOrdinarily full of sharp suits and clacking heels The City takes on a new persona at the weekend; peaceful, quiet and serene. This gorgeous outdoor space is so rare to find in such a central location and is enough for any summer bride to take a chance on the weather!
