The 2015 Collection of Exquisite Bridal Hair Accessories from Erica Elizabeth Designs

March 30, 2015

Good morning lovelies! I have just the perfect post to start the week for you today. For whilst every single one of the past bridal accessory collections from Erica Elizabeth Designs have been exquisite, her latest offering absolutely took my breath away – and I have no doubt it will yours too!

Simply Sublime Bridal Hair Accessories from Erica Elizabeth Designs

I first discovered the divine bridal hair accessories of designer Erica Elizabeth Designs some 3 years ago now (when I shared one of her pieces in this delightfully deco inspiration board – one of my first!) and she very quickly became a firm favourite, of mine and yours. With her incomparably romantic design style, Erica’s pieces and indeed her whole collections, have a way of of perfectly combining the elegance of eras past, with the sophistication and glamour we modern brides demand. Always brimming with strikingly beautiful crowns, delicate veils and unique flourishes; her refined collections, impeccably captured by Caroline Tran, are invariably heavenly to behold. But I do believe this, her latest collection for 2015, could be her most beautiful yet….. you are going to want to have your pinning finger ready!

An Elegant Woodland Wedding Inspiration Shoot from Noi Tran Photography

March 26, 2015

If you loved Monday’s elegant botanical wedding inspiration board then today’s beautiful woodland wedding inspiration shoot from Noi Tran Photography is sure to get you swooning! In the same lovely soft palette of ivory and green, with just a hint of blush, it is rustic, romantic and oh so chic all at once.

An Elegant Woodland Wedding Inspiration Shoot

Against the backdrop of an enchanting forest, every detail is utterly perfect, from the bouquet and centerpiece of delicate white peonies with dashes of pink and winter green created by Holly Bryan Floral & Botanical Design, to the sweetheart table of brass candlesticks and elegant calligraphy by Parris Chic Boutique; from the stylish groom’s relaxed yet dapper country attire, to the deliciously ruffled ivory wedding cake. And nothing could be more perfect for this elegant woodland affair than the gorgeous vintage dress designed by Alena, a boutique designer in Russia, paired with bespoke bridal shoes from MaryMarryMe – I am head over heels in love with both! But by far my favorite detail? The gorgeous aisle arch created by Noi Tran’s husband no less! It makes the most heavenly backdrop for the ceremony and frames the sweetheart table to perfection. In fact, it is fair to say I am completely smitten with each and every element and image from this shoot, and I am sure you will be too – so have your pinning finger ready!

Chic Vintage Bride – Geneva O’Dell

March 25, 2015

Today’s Chic Vintage Bride has instantly become one of my favourites! But who is Geneva O’Dell I hear you ask? She’s a bride, just like any other – not famous, not royal, just your average 1950s girl next door and one of the happiest days of her life, June 11, 1958. …..

Botanical Beauty – Elegant Wedding Inspiration in Shades of Lush Green

March 23, 2015

Good morning lovelies! And how was your weekend? Despite being the first of Autumn, here in NZ, ours still felt decidedly summery with warm sunny days, clear blue skies and the tress still lush with leaves….it’s a lovely time of year! I realise that whilst I am shivering at the thought of the shorter days and bare trees of Fall, many of you are looking forward to Spring after a long cold Winter. So, I decided this week’s wedding inspiration board should be just perfect for either season…..

Botanical Beauty Wedding Mood Board  1 ~ Dylan and Sara Photography via Ruffled, 2 ~ Jemma Keech, 3 ~ This Modern Romance via Wedding Chicks, 4 ~ Meghan K. Sadler for Snippet & Ink

Inspired by that stunning Woodland elopement from Dylan and Sara Photography and the beautiful words from Alfred Lord Tennyson, today’s board is brimming with botanical infused beauty. Elegant and chic, the colour palette is simple – it’s all about the lush greens of Spring and the deep rich browns of Autumn, with a contrast of ivory, complimented by splashes of silver and a stone grey. This wedding colour palette would perfectly suit an outdoor celebration: a garden, winery or woodland; but if it’s too chilly then consider a venue with an orangery, greenhouse, covered courtyard or conservatory. A venue with an abundance of greenery will enable you to save on floral design – have a greenery table runner instead of centrepieces, and add height as well as opulence with grand candelabras. Flower festooned stationery will set the tone of your botanical affair and continue the theme with an ivory wedding cake adorned with greenery.
