Italian Autumn Inspiration

Design Inspiration

Not that it takes much for me to dream of vacationing in Italy, but this styled shoot from Cinzia Bruschini has me daydreaming away. From the sweet vintage lace to the candy-covered apples, this al fresco dining shoot is the real deal. I will let the stylist take the stage: Getting married in autumn with the glorious burst of colours in the trees, the crisp crunch of dried leaves underfoot, the nip in the air and the abundance of choices you have with this season being one of the most dramatic symbols of endings and beginnings autumn stands for.

We have been inspired by the magical atmosphere of an ancient town called Moresco in the Marche region, Italy. Gold, red, dark chocolate and coffee — The typical seasonal colours have been used to give life to a very refined design on which the nature is the undisputed Queen.

From the bride, Karen: The style of our wedding was modern french chic – as our venue had just been through a makeover, it was fitting to make the style sleek french style, lots of chrome, shiny surfaces whilst still maintaining a ‘high tea’ feel to the room.

Our ceremony was completely composed by us and reflected our sense of humor, whilst maintaining a level of seriousness. There were a lot of laughs throughout and 3 surprise readings from 3 special women close to us. At the end of the day, we wanted our guests to enjoy the big party we put on without having to travel between ceremony and reception. We served champagne for guests whilst the ceremony took place and had an open bar all night.

We wanted lots of different areas for our guests to be involved in, from our high tea station with personalized tea bags, to the typewriter desk, to the huge desert buffet, the cupcake tower and the separate lolly buffet. The dessert and lolly buffets were a great icebreaker for our guests.

Steel Magnolias Wedding Inspiration

Design Inspiration

There’s something about the magnolia flower that simply oozes southern charm. Event stylist Heather of Amorology Weddings took this beautiful flower and ran with it, contrasting its femininity with masculine aspects to create an inspiration shoot we’ve fallen head over heels for! A big thank you also goes out to Schnack Studios for snapping these gorgeous photos.

Blush and Bashful

From the designers, Amorology Weddings: Just like the title of the movie, Steel Magnolias, this inspiration shoot is the epitome of contrasts. The beautiful duet of masculinity and femininity that is essential in marriage was reflected in the soft and strong elements of the table as well as throughout the photos. As a nod to the beauty of contrasts in a relationship and the saying “love is give and take” our bridal party engaged in a game of tug-o-war. The mixing of steel and cotton, driftwood and fresh flowers, rough burlap and soft white linen, symbolized the different components that define love. The graphics also merged masculine traits and their feminine counterparts by displaying phrases such as “soft as cotton and strong as steel or thick as rope.”

To play against the rugged feel of the wooden table and all the steel elements, dinner plate dahlias, magnolias, and roses in varying shades of pink and blush made up beautiful arrangements. The girly colors of the flowers hinted at the famous line from the movie, “My colors are blush and bashful, I have chosen two shades of pink.” Little favors of delectable pink candies also displayed the quote atop the boxes. Other details, such as the bull horns, white cotton that made it’s way to the boys boutonnieres, vintage glassware, and giant magnolias, brought in a touch of Southern charm by blending a whisper of tradition and elegance of the past.
