Well, summer hasn’t really materialised, has it? The odd day of warm summer sun has left me longing for hotter climes, so I hope these bright, colourful, tropical wedding styling ideas make you feel warm and sunny inside.
This summer-inspired wedding shoot has a really fun vibe. The styling team created the most fabulous tablescape using vibrant flowers, glassware and crockery. Bright pink, blue, yellow and green make the table look so inviting. I love the use of palm leaves throughout, and they look great suspended in the windows.
Of course, any tropical styling should include pineapples, right? Gold pineapples feature as part of the tablescape, and also on top of the fabulous wedding cake with hand-painted palm leaf detail. The bouquet and flowers bring everything in this shoot to life – the look is so vibrant.
Big thanks to photographer Shot by Angel for capturing these tropical, fun wedding ideas. Please can we have a summer now?
“We wanted to create a wedding scene with tropical flare, so we incorporated a unique line of jewellery, pops of colour and a wonderfully summer-inspired table setting.
“The venue was ideal. It featured a beautiful wooden deck with bright, white walls and a Koi pond – adding to that destination wedding feel.”
Tropical Fruits and Palm Trees
“Summer is our favourite time to soak up the sunshine and enjoy good times with friends and loved ones. We took inspiration from succulent, tropical fruits, palm trees swaying in the wind and a colour palette resembling a beach sunset.
“Layered with textures and colour, the flowers reminded us of tropical getaways with lush flora. We included accents of wood with our seating and table setting to create the feeling of a beachside gem. We also incorporated some delicate jewellery designs to complement the soft, flowing wedding dresses.”
Pops of Colour
“We loved putting this look together and felt that adding fruits in the tablescape was a unique way of incorporating pops of colour, transforming it into a tropical setting. Palm leaves are so in style at the moment, and we found that we only needed a few to create a luscious backdrop of greenery.
“From the cake to the stationery, we managed to create a vision of summer days spent celebrating with loved ones.”
