Soft pastel wedding inspiration that encompasses the delicate romance of the Spring Season
Nestled between lush country gardens and historic stone walls lies the picturesque venue of Shepstone Gardens. A retreat from the hustle and bustle, it is the perfect setting for a dreamy springtime wedding.
When planning this editorial, I wanted to create a feminine and romantic spring vignette filled with soft textures, organic blooms, and intricate details. Inspired by the venue’s beautiful country garden – which, during spring is filled with wildflowers and garden blooms in an array of blush tones and delicate textures – my aim was to inspire brides who are drawn to a lush, organic aesthetic and who believe that details create extraordinary experiences!
The design is simultaneously luxurious in its exuberance and delicate in detail, with romantic florals and finely crafted elements that lend a soft sophistication to the fairytale love story of Kylene and Mladen!
Cara from Florals by Cara took inspiration from the blooming Spring gardens in her exquisite arrangements that featured garden roses, peonies, tulips, rice flowers, and snaps in delicately tinted pastel shades of blush, peach, and cream. The dreamy colour combination was echoed in the delicate invitation suite from Secret Diary, with calligraphy hand lettered over the whimsical painted designs.
To compliment the floral arrangements, the intimate tablescape was set overlooking the lush gardens with blush pink napery, a mixture of vintage décor, crystal glassware and modern flatware. The signature colours and breathtaking venue were highlighted in the showstopping cake from The Turquoise Squirrel, who hand-painted sugar flowers to match the real blooms in Kylene’s bouquet. The cake was displayed on a lavish floral-adorned table as if it had grown amidst wildflowers.
Mladen’s custom-made suit by Frank Bespoke epitomized laid-back luxury and featured a statement blush velvet blazer and sage-green bow-tie. Kylene’s stunning gown by Timeless Bridal boasts a modern design with intricate hand-beaded embellishments and a long flowy veil. Her bridal look was finished with natural hair and makeup by Canvas Makeup Artistry which accentuated her natural beauty…A picture perfect scene as they strolled through lush country gardens and old stone walkways, embracing the romance that illuminated the day!
Captured beautifully behind the lens by Jenna Storey Photography and filmed by One Fine Day, this editorial is filled with femininity and romance, and was designed to inspire couples seeking an intimate garden style wedding.
