Colorful Bohemian German Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

An outdoor boho chic wedding doesn’t always have to be in an earthy setting as Sarah and Martin’s vibrant Germany wedding proves. Expertly photographed by Ashley Ludaescher Photography, hosting a bohemian-style fête on the grounds of an impressive estate like this one in the equally-impressive German countryside is just as perfect! Choosing a palette with moody reds as the foundation, Love Circus transformed Sarah and Martin’s wedding venue into a hip location with the right amount of elegance from Ulrike Buchheim‘s floral designs. All of the different elements and trends harmonizing so well together has us gleaming with delight!

From the photographer, Ashley Ludaescher Photography: This wedding beautifully styled by Love Circus, was so much fun to photograph. With a bohemian garden theme, guests enjoyed the beautiful summer weather in Northern Germany on the stunning grounds of Schloss Herzfelde. Guests escaped the city and spent the weekend celebrating Sarah & Martin tying the knot after a decade together. From the flower crown station for the guests to create their own flower crowns, to the bride’s gorgeous Mira Zwillinger dress, the weekend was filled with beautiful touches and details. Sarah works in fashion and her dress purchased from Brown’s Bride in London fit her perfectly and matched the relaxed sophisticated vibe of the wedding weekend.

Mixing and matching wedding style ideas can be nerve-wracking, especially if the two or more ideas are complete polar opposites of one another. Opt for having luscious florals if you’re seeking out an elegant wedding and toss your more modern ideas in during cocktail hour, as seen here in Sarah and Martin’s fun and bohemian wedding lounge area. A huge tip for pulling the ideas off: be sure to keep the color choices consistent throughout your big day!

French Country Banquet Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Debbie Lourens

This Debbie Lourens and Green Goddess Flower Studio collaboration shoot is a vision in red. The deep ruby is just so mesmerizing and definitely screams French countryside when you see how this rich color is woven and worked into this editorial. It’s such a strong color on its own and adding a delightful punch of pale blue to the mix of colors is the icing on the cake. Not only does it bring out the red even more, it softens the whole look, giving it a nice touch of whimsy. There are so many treats to see with this wedding inspiration!

From the floral designer and stylist, Green Goddess Flower Studio: The inspiration for this shoot was a French banquet in a relaxed country setting. Reminiscent of traditional family dining around a big table in an old Loire Valley chateau. The overall look of the table is one that is relaxed, but elegant without being overly rustic – a little bit of French country botanical. We wanted a table that looked warm and inviting, particularly for couples who want to consider a cooler weather wedding. It can be a wonderful time of year to get married and really enjoy those rich, decadent winter meals, with great wine and a roaring fire. We opted for warm, rich colours of reds, peach and coral, with hints of mint and deep purple for some added drama. We chose large opulent, heavily petalled blooms to convey the sense of understated elegance and to off-set the rich textures of the finer berries. We chose to do a swag style arrangement which is very on-trend and suits the French banquet style of dining.

Langverwagt is a historic farm with beautiful heritage buildings. As the reception cellars were built for practical use of storing wine, they are quite dark – which invites filling the rooms with lots of warm candlelight and rich warm colours. The farm has beautiful gardens around every corner and it was lovely to bring some of the garden into the venue as part of this shoot. And to make use of the venue’s permanent fairy light installations to add some romance to the look.

We wanted to use items that were effortlessly elegant, as if you had been invited to a French country chateau for this celebration. Almost as if the village had all rallied and lent all of their best family crystal, flatware and candlesticks to help the couple celebrate amongst those who had watched them grow up. The slight colour on the flatware added an interesting perspective instead of going for more neutral crockery. It also had a slightly raised pattern on it that gave it a more relaxed feel than if we had chosen something with a gold rim for example. The glasses from Woolworths were ideal they were very classic shapes with beautiful etching that conveys old tradition without the heaviness of a cut crystal glass.

We used a stone coloured linen tablecloth to keep the look relaxed and added a striped linen runner to give it a more French feel. The lighter coloured linen also served as a great backdrop for the deeper coloured flowers and complemented them, rather than competing with them. The gold cutlery was a little nod to some opulence and completed the look by adding to the warm colours of the décor.

We also chose the clear perspex Victoria chairs, which are based on the design of Louis chairs, again the French connection. But we opted for clear chairs, to let the opulence of the table do the talking, rather than confusing the look with more detail in the chairs. We considered using wooden chairs, but the clear perspex added a more contemporary feel, that was too old-world.

We call this type of arrangement a swag or a floral runner. It is often made with mostly greenery, but in our case given the season and the abundance of beautiful berries (in red, purple, brown, green and pink tones), we used the berries as the main ingredient of the swag, with a little greenery for some definition. This was complemented with coral charm peonies (from Holland as they are in season in the Northern Hemisphere between May and August), but peonies are available locally at the end of October, but not necessarily in this colour), red tulips (these are in season in South Africa between June and October), red ranunculus (in season in South Africa from June to November), cream, red and peach roses (available all year round), foliage, all complemented by a mix of seasonal berries.

Oldfield Plantation Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

A soft and luminous wedding editorial at a plantation in the deep south? We signed up for those pictures from Jose & Teresa Photography and they definitely did not disappoint! For a few days, photographer Jeremy Chou held a workshop in Okatie, South Carolina and this southern countryside was the setting while Design Studio South was in charge of all of the details and elements. Under the swaying Spanish moss and centuries-old oaks, they chose a pastel color palette of blues and greys. In came dashes of blush from Colonial House of Flower‘s elegant floral arrangements created with roses and ranunculi, to name a few choice blooms. We can only imagine how dreamy it was to shoot this editorial!

From the photographer, Jose & Teresa Photography: This styled shoot took place in the low-country of Oldfield Plantation in Okatie, South Carolina. It has an ethereal feel with the soft Spanish moss hanging from trees as a background and a beautifully in love couple, who are actually engaged and to be married later this year. The bride has a tattoo of a cross on her right hand’s ring finger, as she is a woman of faith, which really captured my attention as I am also a believer. This concept came to be by Jeremy Chou’s Workshop given on February 29 – March 1.

Long taper candles always add a great deal of romance to any wedding tablescape. They come in a wide variety of colors so you can mix and match them and ensure they suit your color palettes. Set them in glass candle holders like these for a more elongated effect, or add even more elegance and use dreamy metal candelabras. Swoon!
