Tropical wedding styling is still one of my favourite concepts, and I adore these palm and gold styling ideas captured so beautifully by Amanda Karen Photography. Curated by the super talented Always Andri and Flamboyant Invites, every minute detail of this ‘Plantation Chic’ styled shoot has been so carefully planned and beautifully executed.
A variety of palm leaves and ferns form the main element of the styling, adorning the beautiful Holland Park Orangery and tablescape. The large potted palms lining the centre of the table work beautifully under the high ceilings of the orangery, and small varieties in pots and vases intermingle along the table and on the floor. The use of palms at different heights makes such a splendid display.
The palm and gold theme flows through every detail, from the fabulous wedding stationery to the magnificent wedding cakes displayed so beautifully. And wait until you see the gorgeous bridal bouquet!
Everything about this shoot is modern, chic and oh so stylish…
“Bringing the warmth and scents of lush tropical plants to the city, whatever the weather, was the inspiration for this wedding shoot. Our palm and gold theme offers a ‘Plantation Chic’ style concept where muted tones, beautiful tropical foliage, bare wood, white and touches of antique gold take the tropical wedding theme trend in a completely different direction .
“The theme harps back to the Victorian era, when many Orangeries and glasshouses were built to protect citrus trees from the winter weather. The Orangery at Holland Park is a wonderful and beautiful example of this type of building.
“Flamboyant Invites’ faded Coco Palm stationery provided the creative spark for the shoot, styled by Always Andri and beautifully captured by Amanda Karen. White iced cakes incorporated tropical leaf sugar work, and distinctive foliage set ups and table arrangements included both real and artificial foliage and plants. Set within the stunning backdrop of Holland Park’s Orangery, the details reflected the concept perfectly.
“Finally, Truvelle’s bridal gowns exude a timeless and simple elegance, and make the perfect for choice for a wedding at home or abroad.”
