A touch of gold

Posted on December 10, 2013 | 0 comments


A touch of gold was inspired by our beautiful Preston Shoe, it’s a fave of ours, fits brilliantly, looks divine and will suit many different wedding themes and situations. It truly is a shoe that can take you from wedding night, through to the next day (picture teamed with this gorgeous Juliette Hogan Dress!) and beyond.

        

We wanted to take the gold accents of the Preston and evolve them to the next level with this theme, all without being too ‘in your face’. We spoke to renowned New Zealand dress designer Anita Turner-Williams from Vinka Design about the type of dress that would work with these shoes – after browsing through many fabulous and suitable creations we all unanimously agreed on the Larissa, a gorgeous beaded flower lace gown with silk chiffon skirt. The colour tones in this dress, pick up beautifully the golden tones in the shoes and the back on this dress is to die for. Thanks to the talented Zahn Trotter from Perry Trotter Photography for this shot.

With a theme including gold, you had to feature a cake that was impressive as well as a work of art, after many websites were perused, the lovely Paula Jane Cakes came out on top again – we love you guys!

We wanted a really punchy bridesmaid dress, this shimmery number from Modes will delight the bridesmaids, as standalone it is a ‘wow’ dress for the wedding day, but it is also versatile enough for the girls to wear again to any formal occasion. Just what every bride wants for their gals!

  

Bunting, bunting, bunting...everyone knows bunting is the latest buzz word in wedding circles, Trousseau has introduced a selection of one off designs that will really make a statement! Carrying on our secondary theme of future use, one bride summed this up for us perfectly... “I can already see this in the nursery”

When you are on the lookout for wedding invites, we know that Times New Roman can start to look like Comic Sans, but rest assured the team at Freedom Wedding Stationary take the hard work out of it. These super cool invites, can really be tailored to suit you and your fiancé. Taking words from your favourite poem song or even wedding vows to create a unique invite – LOVE MUCH!? We do.

  

Finally, we stumbled upon our pièce de résistance One Lovely Day whilst doing our research on this theme, an event styling company that has worked their magic on some very special weddings. They are original and sure can think outside the box – Check them out! We have featured two of their images in our mood board,  of the beautiful table setting and also the striped straws in bottles – BUT believe us when we say we wanted to feature about 20 images (the boss said we had to restrain  ourselves!) PS – They even hire out a vintage caravan!

The Rose Garden of Love

Posted on November 21, 2013 | 2 comments

The seed was sown for this theme (literally) after a discussion with a bride who was making a big feature of roses on her big day - bouquets and petals galore! We decided to take this one step further for our research and found ourselves venturing into a romantic rose garden of love.

Formal or rambling, soft colours or bold, this theme offered so many options and so many ways of interpreting it. We took the timeless beauty of the rose and supersized it for effect. Opting for a soft palette of colours that flowed into each aspect of the day perfectly.

The dress is a total knock out from Anna Schimmel and really was the hero for this theme. Intricately designed, and the absolute attention to detail in each and every rose petal ensured this theme would not disappoint.

    

We thought very hard about which shoe we would love to pair with this amazing dress and of course we are always so conscious of heel heights at Trousseau that we couldn’t just offer up one option so have given a flat, Halle, for the bride who is already beautifully tall and the same height as her fiancé, for a mid range shoe it was hard to go past the classic Magnolia, but for the girl who is looking for some height to carry off the stunning train it was hard not to match this look with the Bedazzle.

      

As soon as we saw how this dress worked with the shoes the penny dropped and we knew that a previous Trousseau bride, who had dyed her shoes apple green for her big day, had the perfect picture for us of a dyed shoe option and a beautiful bouquet of cream roses. Thanks Angela and Evan for sharing!

We fell in love with the picture and camera angle Chris Dillon from Dillon Photography, captured in his real wedding of the perfect rose stems.

Then when we came across the beautiful table setting and roses it was a bit of a chill up the spine moment, styling and hire products by Flower Factory, photo by Revent, it really captured the look and feel we were going for.

The car colour had to fit perfectly and we were so happy when a bride recommended we check out Funny French Cars in Wanaka.  Their wedding car image was by far and away the most perfect fit we could have hoped for.

    

What is a rose themed wedding without confetti right? Perfectly packaged little bundles for guests displayed in theme. Check out churchconfetti.co.nz – SUCH FUN!! (another great photo by www.dillon.co.nz)

AND have you ever seen a more beautiful cake? Gosh we were really taken by this one from Paula Jane Cakes, its understated beauty just screams quality and deliciousness (if only we could taste it too!) - of course the beautiful decorative roses made out of icing made it perfect for this theme.

Finally, the crowning glory was diamonds..and what girl doesn't LOVE diamonds? Well have we found the most exquisite ring...From the very talented Petra Bettjeman Jewellery,comes this custom made yellow gold and palladium diamond engagement ring.

      

 

Over the next month or two we will bring you a selection of our themed moodboards and discuss the journey involved with each. If you are looking for a bit of inspiration, then these will be a MUST see – they will feature beautiful dresses, cakes, flowers, styling – you name it!

PS Feel free to send through different suggestions on themes you would like to see and we will select a few to play around with.
