Contemporary Neutrals: Wedding Inspiration with a Dash of Khaki
With our love of modern elegance and working with neutrals to create a wedding colour palette that is chic and stylish, I wanted to create a little inspiration at Catharine Noble Photography with these in mind. When we think of neutrals we often go straight to beige’s and whites – which are rather lovely, but there are other options like timeless greys, and I loved this grey meets khaki colour as something a little different to explore. I mean khaki doesn’t often happen in the wedding world does it? Layering the khaki with white in the gloriously creamy ceremony space of Iscoyd Park means that this really stands out as a signature without becoming too much. The trick is to be subtle, remember less is more and you really don’t have to splash the colour everywhere!
This organic feeling muslin runner by Entwined was just the perfect touch and we paired it with modern grey tableware and brushed gold cutlery and calligraphy stationery with copper accents from By Moon and Tide. These tones work so well together. In keeping with this slightly organic modern feel, we added pillar candles to the table and geometric glassware. Edgy touches that kept things simple but super interesting. Over the table hung Floating paper installations which look like clouds. Hang these at varied heights and keep away from making things symmetrical. We initially had more but pared it down to just the two so that the overall look keeps that more minimalist style we love so much here at B.LOVED HQ!
For the bridal look we chose the tasseled and embroidered Mariko gown by Karen Willis Holmes at Agape Bridal Boutique. I loved this modern wrap style dress and it is super flattering on too. The embroidery on silk is delicate and feminine and the tassel edging along the shoulders and the seam of the skirt, is fashion forward, a nod to the bohemian and moves so beautifully when walking down the aisle or dancing!
