P H O T O G R A P H Y: Real Simple Photography (see further styled shoot suppliers detailed below)
This romantic styled shoot invites us to embrace all that is opulent and glamorous, taking inspiration from nature’s dazzling bounty of gemstones and jewels.
If you want your wedding to be fit for a fairytale, the key is to drench your venue, your cake, your table decorations and more in an cornucopia of details. Working with a palette of jewel tones, enhanced by calmer champagne hues, start from the ground upwards. Scatter colourful confetti along the aisle, cluster flowers and vases onto tabletops, then add height with suspended floral installations, drapes or lighting.
Here you’ll find our edit of five details that will help to recreate this opulent jewels wedding decor for your own magical day.
Transparent baubles are a simple addition in themselves when filled with a flickering tea light, but why not mix and match the filling so they can act as colour accents too? Fill the baubles with matching blooms to your bouquet or a few extra handfuls of petal confetti to achieve this whimsical and bright look.
At the heart of the opulent jewels wedding decor pictured in the styled shoot are the flowers. Whether you work with your florist to help your ideas bloom or get crafty with faux varieties, choose bright, richly coloured flowers to nail this look. Think emerald green foliage, sapphire blues, ruby reds, and gemstone pinks…
If there is one item of tableware that is most iconic of the grandeur of the past, it has to be candelabra. Choose a glistening gold variety, the taller the better, to really anchor your glamorous theme’s opulent details. Enhance the look with champagne-coloured hurricane vases, cutlery and beaded chargers to complete the look.
And whether you’re filling baubles or confetti cones with pretty petals, make sure they are colour matched to your jewelled palette too. This confetti mix works perfectly, combining the rich pink, purple and golden tones seen throughout the styled shoot’s tablescape. The small details add up to really lift your reception decor and create an overall wow factor effect.
