Need some summer wedding inspiration? Well, although inspiration shoots can’t go ahead at the moment, I’ve got some gorgeous summer inspiration sitting in my archives for you. Check out this baby from February 2019!
I decided to go for a fruity look because I wanted to do something a bit unusual. The vision was always to have an abundance of ripe and sumptuous fruits adorning every element of the wedding, all tied together with bold features. As we had a same sex couple, it was crucial to me to show how traditionally feminine colours can still be edgy.
I chose intense, punchy colours paired with their softer sweeter sisters, each taken form a different type of fruit. The primary hues were pomegranate, lemon, and peach, which all balanced each other out elegantly. Each of these fruits has a striking colouration, but also a more subtle undercurrent. If we used only the bold tones, it would have been overwhelming.
The floral design assisted the fruit flawlessly, Hedges and Flowers have a colour matching power. We were lucky to acquire Icelandic poppies which created a statement across the arrangements as well as the bouquets. Instead of your standard flower wall, Elise and I spent hours hand-sewing oranges to create a mesmerising backdrop to the top table.
How to Achieve this Look
This look was so much fun to create, and I would highly recommend this to any couples who are looking to do something a bit unorthodox. We took early morning trips to London’s fruit market to explore all the various fruits available; it was such an exciting experience. My top tips would be to make sure you match your bold colours with softer tones, and go hard or go home with your pairing. Embed fruit everywhere you possibly can to carry the look through your whole day. In cocktails, on the tables, on the stationery, even in your bouquet!
