Today’s incredible wedding inspiration is full of stylish details and fabulous tropical florals. The styling team, led by Perfect the Event, used bougainvillea, a bright pink tropical climbing plant, to bring an explosion of colour to the shoot. Combined with palm leaves it creates a real wow factor for this tropical wedding styling.
The 1912 in California, with its aristocratic vibe and sophisticated allure, works so well as the backdrop. Used in varying ways, the fabulous tropical foliage and flowers bring the venue to life. I love the statement floral ceremony arch, and the same magnificent florals create spectacular table arrangements where the flowers cascade over the edges. Although bright and colourful, the minimal styling allows the florals to take centre stage.
Huge thanks go to Alicia Mink for sharing these modern tropical wedding ideas she captured so perfectly.
“The light gently pours down onto green and fuchsia beds of exotic growth. Elephant ears and monstera leaves showcase the vibrant tones of the bougainvillea, and candle light dances beneath. A once urban framework quickly evolves into the lair of the jungle and the birthplace of the rainforest elephant.
“Cascading into a place she thought she once knew, but now looks like a foreign world; she slowly walks through. Taking in each detail, each touch of pigmented gold, each round edge of grey river rock china. She now sees the beauty of what has become of her once big city memories. A Hayley Paige design hugs her body, as her Maria Elena headpiece and wrist statement glisten, she is ready for this day. The day she becomes one with the man she met in this foreign world, and fell madly in love with. He is prone to this world, and thrives in the colourful wonder.
“This is the day that their two worlds collide. The modern marvel and the jungle gentleman.”
