Bows, Bows, Bows!
Over the last month or so, we have spotted a rise in bow motifs, delicate ribbons and dramatic fabric embellishments, but they’re far from their peak! Thanks to the balletcore movement, bows are becoming an integral part of luxury event design, and we’re excited to see how they will feature in the upcoming wedding season.
Draped from dining candles, garnishing Champagne coupes or intricately woven through bespoke stationary suites; as the New Year falls upon us, we are ready to see bows take centre stage throughout.
Here’s our beautiful 2023 bride Lily, shot by Studio Westlake, donning the perfect hair bow in lieu of a veil at her summer wedding.
If there’s one way to pump energy into your wedding party, it’s a big band. With dynamic vocalists and top class musicians, the 6-12 piece bands are bringing even the most unlikely guests to the dancefloor; kick your heels off granny, it’s party time.
See your reception space transformed as you walk through from dinner to a high spec dancefloor complete with saxophonists, drummers and guitarists to launch you into the party atmosphere!
We’re seeing more and more of our couples looking at ways to come together and make the most of their celebration of love. Afterall, how many times have we heard Brides and Grooms say “the day went by far too quickly”.
Luckily, there is a simple solution: the Wedding Weekend! Designing three days filled with special moments for friends and family is something we look forward to seeing a lot more of in 2024. From ‘night before’ drinks receptions and welcome dinners to farewell brunches in the Dorset countryside, it’s all about having the time to share memories and stories from the big day!
Whilst pastels will roll into 2024 to continue forming an elegant base for wedding colour palettes, we’re excited to see vibrant, statement colours come into play.
Whether accenting stationary, candles, or second looks, warm colours are a fun way to exude personality through your wedding styling; think pocket squares, the shoes peeping out from under your wedding dress and the wax seals on your invitations – the possibilities are endless!
We have been blown away by the installations brought to St Giles House in recent years, and they just keep getting bigger and better. We’re looking forward to seeing wedding styling reach new heights in 2024, with tall tree centerpieces, hanging chandeliers and suspended floral installations.
Not only do they create beautiful focal points for each part of your day; they fill the room without taking up floor space, creating an intimate atmosphere for you and your guests to enjoy the grandeur.
