Opulent indulgence wedding inspiration, styled by styled by Amanda Karen Photograhpy and Nodlaigh from Daydreaming Bride


The beauty of a styled shoot is that a whole host of professionals combine to tantalise your wedding senses with an array of colours, details, and styles that you just wouldn’t have thought, yet they seem to utterly perfect for you. I am confident that today’s copper opulence shoot will hold lots of gems that can translate to big or small details for your special day…

I would never have thought to introduce a touch of copper into a wedding palette, but this usually industrial shade actually adds a vibrant, warm and indulgent touch. And the DRESSES, all stunningly beautiful, but so different that there really is something for everyone. Personally I am coveting the decadent number…

Take a look at this shoot, perfectly styled by Amanda Karen Photograhpy and Nodlaigh from Daydreaming Bride, and I promise you will be buzzing with new ideas and inspirations:

This shoot was inspired by a sassy and sophisticated bride, who enjoys lavish luxury and also wants to assert her individuality on her wedding.

We wanted to use the colours copper and grey because they are typically seen as industrial colours but we wanted to show how they can be combined to create a feminine and stylish wedding palette. I love copper and grey as a colour combination, pale greys feel fresh and the copper is a modern twist on luxury traditionally associated with gold!

It was also important in this shoot to work with suppliers who shared the same affinity to showcasing individuality and who, when combined could really bring this vision to life.

There are so many great ways to recreate this style in a wedding, we used various pewter and glass vessels to display single or small bunches of flowers dotted along the centre of the table rather than one large table centre.

The use of succulents, greenery and orchids gave the table an exotic feel, which combined with the sequined table runner, glass charger plates and silk napkins the table was oozing luxury!

In addition to this, we created our own copper and grey fan backdrop which really set off the copper in the cake and would be a great addition to a cake table at a real wedding.

The dresses were chosen to express differing aspects of our bride’s individuality, from Heart Aflutter’s sassy sequined number, the sleek and sophisticated Anna Tumas dresses from Mode Bridal or the more ethereal floaty Terry Fox dress also from Mode Bridal. We had an eclectic mix of headdresses and bags to finish off each look.
