Watercolour is a big trend right now, not just in wedding styling but everywhere we look… and we love it.

The wedding styling ideas in this sensational urban watercolour shoot evoke a feeling of calm and tranquillity amongst the hustle and bustle of the city setting. The beautiful pastel colour palette works so well with the herbs that bring the outside in.

So fresh and modern, this styling would work for weddings in almost any type of venue, not just urban venues, and in any season… that’s the great thing about herbs!

Huge thanks to Amanda Karen Photography and the team for sharing such fabulous wedding inspiration.

Luxurious and Stylish

“This styled shoot was inspired by the growing trend for urban weddings in London while maintaining a luxurious and stylish feel. Watercolour touches added softness to the industrial surroundings of Drake and Morgan at Kings Cross, through the use of silk linens, stunning stationery and a beautifully watercolour painted cake.”

Bringing the Outside In

“If a venue doesn’t have its own green outdoor space couples are keen to find ways to bring the outside in. The use of herbs achieved this and also brought a softer feel to the venue.

“In ancient Greece they used herbs in wedding bouquets to ward off evil spirits, and the Victorians also used them, mainly to provide scent, but also to convey hidden messages and meanings. In our bride’s bouquet we used mint (virtue), flowering marjoram (joy and happiness), scented geranium (true friendship) and lavender (devotion). Wow, it smelt amazing! In the table garland we used bay (glory), rosemary (remembrance, and memories of loved ones) and thyme (courage and strength).

“The flowing movement and jewelled details of our bride’s dress really showcased the desire of modern London brides to look stylish and beautiful on their big day.”
