Lush nostalgic styling

Blush linen napkins and vintage cutlery

Perfect, natural textures meet lush, rich blooms and delicate lettering - we are in nostalgic bliss over this recent styled shoot, created by some truly talented Wairarapa wedding suppliers! Fusing the best bits of classic, heirloom wedding elegance with modern simplicity, these images are sure to have you dreaming of the most perfect, intimate wedding celebrations.

The hardwood floors and gorgeous old windows of Carterton’s Clareville Bakery created a warm, magical backdrop, and captured the setup by Mavis & Foxe in the perfect light. And how can you not fall in love with the satisfying textures throughout - the combination of cotton rag, deckle edged paper with the natural grain of the laser cut wood, all laid across linen and surrounded by pops of romantic burgundy florals. Eek - we are completely in love! You can just imagine how idyllically everything would tie in with the gorgeous lace of a wedding gown, the clinking of crystal glasses, and the laughter and chatter of family and friends.

At the end of the day, after all the chaos of your wedding, you’ll be left with a loving partner for life, and an album full of wedding photos (and, maybe, a slice of cake hidden in your freezer for your one year anniversary!). It will live on in photographs forever - so why wouldn’t you give the styling the attention and care it deserves! Nothing will quite beat looking through your album in many years’ time, and still being captivated by the beautiful details that surrounded your celebrations. If you’re trying to find inspiration for your wedding styling (or you just love a bit of wedding eye candy!), then grab a cup of tea, get completely lost in these dreamy images, and maybe even jot down a few ideas for your perfect day.
