Boho Meets Luxe
Peruse through these stunning photos, styled by the creative director of Adorn Invitations and shot by the talented husband wife duo behind Sephory Photography and discover just how you can create your own Boho wonderland wedding.
Dreaming Up the Day
The fun part of the inspiration and creation process is that you never know how organically it can evolve and which direction it can go in. Speaking to the team behind this gorgeous editorial – they mentioned that the initial idea behind the theme was a lot darker and moodier – think plum colours, dark lips and forest settings. However, as the theme developed, it took a much more romantic and whimsical twist. Moroccan influences, modern elegant details and romantic colour palettes all ended up finding their way into the final product. Don’t be afraid to keep your mind open as you begin your inspo journey!
Designing the Day
The stylist behind the day used purples, lilacs and blushes and combined them with rich metallic golds and crisp whites for a perfect boho harmony. Textures also played an important part in the décor of the day, with the use of linen based soft furnishings and rough wooden furniture giving way to an organic and natural feel.
Use wild greenery in your floral arrangements to balance out the vivid purples and really add that bohemian touch. Succulents are also a gorgeous plant to tie in to this colour palette and will provide a modern contrast against the romantic roses used in the bouquet. Semi-precious stones and agates were sourced from local suppliers and were scattered around the tablescapes however the head stylist combined these organic shapes with sleek gold décor to provide a more modern and elegant angle for the more traditional bride and add a touch of boho fun.
Do it Yourself?
Katerina Vermes who was the chief stylist of the shoot, ultimately wanted an editorial that would show brides how easy it is to create a Pinterest worthy wedding theme on a low budget, with local vendors. The eccentric skull centre piece was actually sourced from a thrift shop and was a DIY project. Pearls, small diamante’s and crystals were all deconstructed from costume jewellery pieces to give a more romantic and accessible look to the skull.The geometric vases that are scattered throughout the floral arrangement in the main tablescape were also sourced from K-mart for less than $5! The result? Lavish and Luxe.
