Timeless Summer Romance – Elegant Neutral Wedding Inspiration Brimming with Greenery
Here in New Zealand Winter is coming, but warmer days are just around the corner for many of you, and with the hazy days of Summer still fresh in my memory I was inspired to create today’s romantic take on a Summer wedding. In a neutral palette but with lashings of greenery it is a timeless affair that abounds with olde world elegance…..

With a Summer wedding I always feel you want to make the most of the season with an outdoor ceremony and reception – but be sure to always have a back up plan, just in case! And for this particular board I was thinking somewhere beside a lake, where you can have the ceremony on a jetty or deck overlooking the water.
Whatever location or venue you decide on though, an outdoor celebration brimming with greenery can be a budget friendly choice if you get creative and talk to your florist. Think grass filled bouquets with a just picked look, greenery table runners instead of floral centerpieces and smatterings of greenery adorning your place settings and cake.
With a relaxed feel that verges on rustic, this is a timelessly chic take on vintage that will never go out of fashion. Keep styling and decor cohesive but simple, with a neutral color palette and a mix of textures it won’t fail to wow your guests. I especially love the understated elegance of a beautifully iced white cake atop an antique stand.
Loving greenery as much as I am (still) but not head over heels with this inspiration board? Then you might like to take a look at my muted greenery board in a similar color palette, or this rustic take on the look (with a barn venue!) or this understated yet elegant garden affair. Oh and you definitely won’t want to miss these beautiful inspiration shoots from Greece and England that bring greenery to life!
