‘Summer of Love’ – Fun 1960s Garden Wedding Inspiration


Today we’re going back to the swinging sixties – fitting really given the news today ūüôĀ – with a charming garden wedding¬†inspiration shoot¬†full of mod fashion, daisies (one of my favourite flowers) and super sweet details; all in a vibrant palette of white, yellow and green that screams Summer‚Ķ‚Ķ

1960s Inspired Summer Daisy Wedding

“Welcome to the Summer of Love!¬† The 1960’s were such a cool era.¬† I love Mod looks, the glamorous hair and makeup, and the groovy fashions.¬† I also love bright colors and flowers.¬† Daisies were the perfect fit for this sweet little styled shoot, they are such cheerful and hearty flowers. I decided to use a bright yellow and white color scheme to bring it all together.¬† The overall look is fresh and light, perfect for summer!

We used two different bouquets.  One is a brooch bouquet of daisies, created especially for this shoot by Susie Kays Design.  The bridal bouquet was a mix of daisies, hydrangea, and small fillers.  The bridesmaid bouquet was a mix of daisies.  The table centerpiece was a mix of daisies, hydrangea, and fillers in a rustic teapot, set upon a vintage cake stand.

The cake by¬†Cake Wasted¬†was a beautiful three tier confection of perfection!¬† The bottom tier was hexagon shaped, covered in yellow fondant frosting and a delicate white geometric pattern.¬† The top two round tiers were covered in creamy white fondant frosting, and adorned with a cascade of handcrafted daisy blooms.¬† The golden cake topper, provided by¬†Everlaser, read “I love your sunny funny face.”¬† It was a cute nod to one of my favorite actresses, Audrey Hepburn, and complemented the bright yellow color scheme of the shoot.

I wanted vintage attire for this shoot.¬† I chose an elegant, long sleeved cream gown, which featured a woven cream and gold top, and a wide gold belt, which looked amazing on Lauren.¬† On our bridesmaid model, Sammy, I chose a flirty sundress in light yellow with an overall polka dot design. We accessorised¬†with a pale yellow birdcage veil, and short vintage gloves. On our groom Brandon, we kept a clean, classic look with a button down shirt, pastel bow tie and suspenders.¬† On Lauren’s adorable daughter Addie, we chose a light yellow shantung dress with a simple white organza overlay skirt that had a few floral appliques.

Our tablescape was an eclectic mix of items.¬† The lemon yellow satin tablecloth was topped by a daisy print runner, handmade by Laurie Wallick of Lorili Design.¬† We used beaded glass charger plates, white dinner plates with a basket weave detail, and smaller dessert plates with hand painted daisies on them.¬† Glassware was a combination of vintage green cut glass goblets, and small champagne flutes.¬† The matching napkins and napkin rings were also made by Laurie Wallick.¬† The centerpiece was placed on a vintage white cake stand.”
