Elegant Vintage Wedding Inspiration

Step into this edgy, yet classic twist of elegant vintage wedding inspiration out of the UK with stylist and photographer Natasha Newland, Ikonworks. It will immediately transport you to an era where sophistication reigns with stunning details and beautiful color combinations. Set at the Somerley House, a five-generation family home, the allure of old English heritage shines through with family heirlooms, antique pieces and amazing works of art throughout the background. Using big trends that will be seen this year, the team of vendors highlighted fabric and surface patterns an elegant vintage color palette and ga-ga-gorgeous floral creations by Judith Searles Event Florist.

Elegant Vintage Wedding Inspiration

The overall concept of English heritage is not only attractive, but aspirational this season. It oozes class with antique tones that can be applied through a beautiful color scheme like this pastel one of peaches and crème with strong antique gold metallic touches and this year’s color of the year – “Greenery.” Talk about creating and ambience of warmth! Delicate gold edged stemware and tableware with beautiful gold cutlery from White House Event Crockery are balanced with gold chairs that send a message of opulence across the board with this tablescape. Peppering the scene is an avalanche of peach tone floral with white white hypericum, asparagus fern, memory lane roses, Anigozanthos, eustoma in cream and salmon, astrantia, guervillia, parrot tulips in cream, scabiosa stellata and cafe au lait dahlias. Taking center stage is a masterpiece by Unique Cakes by Yevnig that easily compliments the coloring of the decor, features a rococo effect sugar styling and showcases the crest of Somerley on the top layer. The bride is wearing Kate Halfpenny who weaves Brit cool with vintage modishness to create truly stunning wedding dresses and bridal wear. The Chloe Gold dress boast a stunning slash neck and godet train. The stunning Marianne hand beaded and embroidered dress with a low v back and drop waist is worn simply over the classic and hugely flattering Iris Slip. Paired with a Tilly Thomas Luxe headpiece this bridal style works for a range of theme weddings. Sally of Tilly Thomas Luxe, is a natural magpie and collector of all things sparkly and found herself becoming intrigued by the significance of the headpiece. Throughout history this type of accessory empowered women from Goddess to Queen, depicting status, power and beauty. Staying true to her dream and her brand, she strives to make pieces that last forever. Her pieces are strong, stunning and match perfectly with the delicious designs of Kate.
