Nothing is fresher than a hint of mint, and this wedding idea has plenty of it! So pretty and pastel, we’ve gone back to basics with this favourite wedding palette. The pale green looks sublime with white, tan and sparkle accents and is versatile across the seasons. It looks as fresh as scrumptious gelato in the summer and is a crisp icy hue for the winter months. Not that one needs to justify using a minty wedding palette - it really is one of our favourite shades!
Ultra-feminine mint green accents will breathe a breath of fresh air into your wedding décor. Our concept may be full on green (what can we say, we’re beguiled by the hue), but you can take inspiration from these pictures in the smallest ways. We may love the colour paired with understated neutrals and silver, but it also looks refreshing and girly with peaches, pinks and various shades of green. If you’re more of a gold girl then substitute silver accents for gilt ones. Sweet!
Many flowers look fabulous with mint green, but one of our favourites is Baby’s Breath. Light and almost ethereal, it is the perfect flora to complement the softness of your décor. Use it for simple bouquets and tie the look together by adding it to your centrepieces, boutonnieres and decorations.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Actually, we’ll leave the love part up to you and instead we’re going to count the ways that you can use chalkboards in your wedding décor. They are amaaaazingly versatile and once we went searching, well, we couldn’t stop finding quirky and unique ideas! From wedding signage to pure decoration, you’re going to definitely want to raid the craft cupboard and dig out the long lost sticks of chalk!
There’s a lovely little product available at most hardware stores…and that is chalkboard paint. A wedding décor dream, you can transform any surface into a chalkboard and decorate it with…pretty much anything you like! We love these chalkboard archways – perfect for the ceremony, couple photos or even a photo booth background. Chalk table numbers, signage and placemats are ideal for a shabby chic, quirky or rustic style wedding.
The best part about using chalkboards is that they’re so personal – you can decorate them anyway you choose, and if you mess up you can just wipe it clean and start again! Use large chalkboards to write the menu on, direct guests or to sign where they need to be. We are in love with this cute chalkboard backdrop for a dessert table and mini chalkboard cupcake toppers. Miniature chalkboards in chic frames with take them from schoolroom to fashionable as little place cards.
To ensure consistency throughout your styling, why not send guests out these charming chalkboard invitations. It will give them a glimpse of the quirkiness to come. Use the chalkboard paint or chalkboard stickers to label mason jars - guests can write on their name and use the same jar all night to drink whatever feels right!

Megan and Ben were both dirty and tired after spending all day renovating a house they had just purchased...so the last thing Megan was expecting was a proposal! She took a moment to rest inside when Ben appeared behind her with ring! Megan says it was the one and only moment in their relationship that she was speechless! A beautiful rustic wedding followed, celebrated by the couple’s family and friends.
Megan and Ben both wanted a casual country location surrounded by vineyards and fell in love with their venue the moment they saw it. Natural and serene, the soft palette of the vineyard complemented their relaxed and intimate style. Megan looked naturally beautiful in a unique custom-made gown. Elegant
and contemporary, it was designed to match her personality with little
personal touches. Her simple necklace was from Mist Jewellery and she
had a blue sapphire that belonged to Ben’s grandmother made into a ring
for her niece. This was her something borrowed and something blue. Ben
and his groomsmen scrubbed up extremely well in perfectly fitted suits
from Joseph Uzumcu.
The pair had an exquisite variety of flowers, consisting of hydrangeas, David Austin roses, lisianthus, stephanotis, hyacinths, tuber roses, blush Singapore orchids, larkspur and freesias in ivory and pale pink colours. The centrepieces were made to reflect Megan’s soft bouquet. The entire colour scheme and styling was very natural and rustic, which looked so timelessly beautiful.
There was no shortage of sweet treats on hand for guests to enjoy. Sugar and Spice Cakes created a delicious three-tier white chocolate and raspberry and chocolate mud cake, topped with lovely fresh flowers. Guests also took home yummy rocky road chocolate made by Megan’s mother.
Allison Hernach Photography took the photos on the day, capturing both classic and playful shots for the wonderful wedding album. “We wanted our wedding photos to be contemporary but timeless, to truly capture the day, as they are lasting memories that we will keep forever. From the moment we met Allison we knew we wanted her to take our wedding photos. She was down to earth and we knew she would capture the important moments.”
