Wheat Nouveau Fall Wedding Inspiration

We’re reaching the end of autumn, and this collaborative styled shoot designed by WINK! Weddings, perfectly captured by This Modern Romance, Velvet Leaf Studio and Archive Vintage Rentals to name a few, sets the tone perfectly. Really, what’s not to love about a dramatic beaded black gown, patterned wedding invitations, a fishtail braid, and a deep charcoal wedding cake? Let’s jump in!

From the photographer, Stephanie Williams of This Modern Romance: Shot in the hills of Southern California during Golden Hour, I loved this shoot for the uniqueness of the design and non traditional dresses. So perfect for Fall and a “Gold Spun Dark Romance” theme. What WINK! Weddings came up with was a beautiful concept – a slightly darker take on a bohemian theme.

From our own stylist and designer, Carolyn of WINK! Weddings: The concept of this shoot is Wheat Nouveau, consisting of a warm earthy vibe balanced with a stark modern ambiance. We selected elements in a lux color palette of heavy metals, dramatic black, bright ruby, and soft ivories. All of this was brought back to the light feeling of grassy wheat swaying in the wind. Design elements such as furniture pieces rang true of a more Gothic state of mind, all balanced with the romantic whimsy of the Wheat Nouveau essence. This style speaks to a free spirit who is non traditional and is deeply and openly in love.

Amelie Inspired Wedding Ideas

Amélie may have come out 13 years ago (can you believe it?), but I’m still as obsessed with it today as I was all those years ago. So naturally, when I saw this styled shoot from Ashlee Hamon Photography, Oh Hello Events, and Taylormade Wedding and Event Flowers, I jumped at the chance to share it with you all! Not only is it full of charming nods to the classic film, it’s also teeming with gorgeous ideas for your next holiday party or winter wedding.

From the photographer, Ashlee Hamon: This editorial was inspired by 2001 French film, Amélie! Amélie is the type of film that sticks with you – with visual prowess and a lovable lead character. In our case, the film resonated with Ashlee Hamon Photography and inspired several local vendors to contribute their time and talents to create a lush backdrop for our sweet models. From hand-tied florals and quirky vegetable and fruit accents, each little piece is pulled from elements of the movie that is so beloved. This is the perfect inspiration for winter with rich greens, amber, terra cotta, and shades of red that vary from fire engine to magenta. While it has a hint of vintage, the concept is entirely fit for a modern couple that loves cinema, are francophiles, or just love a little bit of pretty, organic inspiration!

Sweet Wedding in the English Countryside

Photos By: LM Weddings

English countryside weddings, we love you so. Nina and Gareth are an Australian-English couple who traveled to the groom’s home town to exchange vows in front of their loved ones. Luckily for us, Laura McCluskey of LM Weddings was there to capture it all for us to admire!

From the bride, Nina: We wanted a relaxed day in the countryside that represented both of our upbringings despite coming from opposite sides of the world. An English countryside setting with plenty of Australian inspired details, food and drinks as a nod to my childhood. With many overseas guests, we wanted to take the opportunity to show off Gareth’s beautiful home town during the glorious British summertime. We took inspiration from summer wildflowers with lots of blues and greens and hints of red. We also incorporated elements of the countryside with lots of wood, natural light and maps.

The whole event was very DIY, and everyone’s contributions made it feel so special. There was such an overwhelming sense of excitement and love as we all set up the hall together the day before. One of my favourite memories is watching my father and my husband-to-be working together to saw the table number bases on the grass outside the hall. My cousin Arielle Gamble is an illustrator and we were incredibly lucky to have her involved with everything from the invites to the table numbers, seating chart and signage at our village hall reception. My mother and sister put together the dozens of flower centrepieces, which looked beautiful and made the hall smell amazing with all the fresh herbs. My mother lovingly collected all the linen napkins and Australiana tablecloths and brought them over with her. I made all the bunting from scraps of Liberty print fabric I had collected.

We worked with The Meadow Garden, a small flower farm based next door to the village hall. The flowers could not have been more local! They offered us a beautiful array of seasonal, sustainable English flowers and we chose a mix of summer wildflowers that included scabiosa, poppy heads, daisies, ammi, cornflowers, snapdragons, cream roses, salvia and herbs like oregano, catmint, lavender and rosemary. I wandered around the farm the day before the wedding helping them pick a few more sweet peas that had bloomed overnight, which was a dream come true.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Listen to your instincts and try not to get overwhelmed by the huge amount of inspiration available. Remember it’s your day and your budget and you should do what feels right for you and your partner even if it’s not traditional. Don’t be afraid to ask friends for help! We were so lucky to work with our talented friends and so many pitched in to help with djing, catering, flowers, invites etc. It was definitely a labour of love! If guests are travelling from abroad, try to organise a casual event the day after the wedding so you can make sure you spend enough time with them. The actual day will go so fast and you will be grateful for a little extra time to spend with the people that have made such an effort to be there for you even if it’s just a picnic in the park.
