Tune: "we shall walk and talk in gardens all misty and wet with rain, and I will never grow so old again…sweet thing…with your champagne eyes and your saint like smile" - Van Morrison, Sweet Thing (play song in gallery below)

Palette: Cream, Rose Gold, Chalky Pales, Sienna, White, Charcoal, Dusky Gold, Ochre Tints
Decor/Styling: Inspired by forgotten estates and rambling gardens, an age of innocence and a lightness of being, re-imagine bohemia through an almost entirely white lens, layering shades of pale with delicate white blooms, intricate lacework and luxe accents of rose tinted gold for an unexpectedly new and ethereally romantic take on a white wedding.
Drawing upon textures and patterns found both in nature and antique iron lacework, mirrored in fabric form and referenced subtly down tablescapes laid with cut crystal, there is a symmetry and a beautiful intricacy to be found in the details of a predominantly pale palette. Etched cutlery evocative of filigree jewellery, floral motifs extend through to lacework, window panes reflected in faceted glasses, plates in organic, giant petal like shapes… all underpinned by an heirloom sensibility suffused with a feeling of freedom and lightness.
Crisp broderie anglaise silhouettes and textured cotton lace for bridesmaids are accented with the polish of superfine rose gold jewels. Dewy fresh faces are framed by hair styled effortlessly, finished with a scatting of the tinniest white blooms. The effect is spritely, an ethereal emergence of lace adorned creatures from a misty, dewy garden, into the light.
