Mood: Effortlessly luxe, romantic, gypsy spirited
Palette: Rich mauve velvets, wild rose, plum, faded mint, antique silvers, brushed gold, ivory.
Decor/Styling: A beautifully decayed room with peeling aqua painted walls and exposed bricks, romantically decorated with layers of mauve hued rugs & flickering candles. Warm afternoon light pouring through old arched windows. Velvet antique couches, regal tableware, luxe gold trimmed antique crockery. Bridesmaids in deep wine hues & stained lips, a bohemian lace wedding gown & sweeping veil adorned in decadent jewels. A stunning contrast of rich decadence & earthy decaying textures.
Recreate this look: A vintage inspired long sleeve gown (we love the Lilly Dress by Amanda Garrett) or a couture design created by Suzanne Harward, a Delphine Manivet tulle veil paired with a custom made jewelled headpiece by Teeki Designs or this Swarovski Crystal Headband, Anais couture garter by Bridal Trousseau, bridesmaids in red wine hued maxi dresses (love The Row Priston Maxi Dress & this lace dress by Emilio Pucci!).
Decorate your reception with layered Moroccan-style rugs, Choose raw wooden tables and decorate with aqua plates (try Anthropologie's Lotus Dinner plates), collect mismatched vintage glass bottles in all-blue (visit your local second hand & antique stores) & fill with all fuchsia blooms (we recommend these florists). Create a beautifully styled tea & coffee station with mismatched tea cups & saucers (hire from A Vintage Affair or try & search for opulent designs in mauve & gold tones). You could also pour candle wax into the tea cups as your wedding favors. For your honeymoon, spoil yourself with this beautiful velvet lingerie set by Lonely Hearts). Don't have the time to DIY? Enlist the help of a creative wedding stylist to bring this concept to life!
