We love when modern and vintage cross paths. Contrasting ideas always make such cool, funky, and lively shoots and this one snapped by Milton Photography is no different! Kismet & Clover brought together these ideas through the look and feel of antiquated romance meets urban styling. To keep the lines minimal but to also add more greenery for the greenhouse feel, Chickweed Cottage brought in cool potted greens and succulents, which always modernize a space without going overboard. And it must be mentioned: any time copper is used, we always have to take a second and third look.
From the event designer, Kismet & Clover: The inspiration for this wedding shoot came from wanting to draw upon the romantic feel of a greenhouse while balancing it with the urban feel of an industrial interior. We love the look of an old farmhouse potting shed, but wanted to modernize it by softening the rustic with clean modern lines, copper, metallic undertones, and soft textures.
The ceremony arbour is both copper and modern, and is offset by a textured backdrop of hand-painted water colored linen. We wanted to re-create a greenhouse effect as an ode to spring, so we adorned the space with an assortment of potted greens and succulents, and styled the arbour with dainty eucalyptus. We’re head over heels for the crazy gorgeous cascading bouquet, predominantly composed of a mixture of greenery.
As for the cake vignette, what better way to represent springtime but with vibrant tulips! We love the naked cake with the coral tulip garnish, and it looks so darling on the old upcycled wooden spindle. For the tablescape, we used a farm table and balanced it out with a minimalistic table setting of copper charger plates adorned with white and grey blue undertones. Our stationery designer totally captured the essence of our vision in her sleek modern invitation suite.
This styled wedding was fresh, light and airy, and embodied a perfect mix of urban city feel with a fresh greenhouse elegance. We feel that this photo shoot will inspire modern brides with a penchant for lush greens, and an appeal for a soft meets rustic aesthetic.
