WEDDING COLOUR STYLE - BLACK

4 July 2016

Black is the forever-ultra chic colour that no matter how many years, centuries or eras go past, never fails to transcend trends. Elegant, sophisticated and timeless, an all black wedding scheme is ideal for epicurean couples who wish to indulge in the finer things in life during their special day. Flowing champagne, opulent accessories and a classic colour palette are all black tie necessities. Its just too fabulous darlings!

You will be styling with a simple and elegant colour palette, so ensure you create a warm and inviting ambiance to avoid your venue becoming impersonal. Many regal candelabras will wash your tables with a romantic glow, and miniature hedge trees are sophisticated and homely, without detracting from your simple elegance. Don't forget to remind guests of your dress code on the invitations so that they can dress to impress and enjoy the formal celebrations! dark bridal makeup - brides of adelaidethree tier black glitter wedding cake - brides of adelaideblack wedding dress and grooms suit - brides of adelaideblack grooms suit - brides of adelaide

BOA STYLE - MONOCHROME STRIPES

23 June 2016

Monochrome may be a favourite colour palette for weddings, but we bet you've never seen it looking so contemporary and funky! Black and white stripes will never get old as long as Kate Spade is around to inspire and are the coolest way to infuse a little quirky edge into your wedding day. The monochrome palette ensures the theme is still elegant and that your style really POPS! We don't know about you, but we're obsessed!

The myriad of ways you can incorporate black and white stripes into your wedding day is quite wonderfully astounding! The stripey bridesmaids dresses featured above are totally unexpected, but we love the unique way they completely stand out! Carry the theme across your styling with a little black and white ribbon tied around the groom and groomsmen's buttonholes. So chic!

REAL WEDDING - TIMOTHY + KRISTEN

19 April 2016

THE COUPLE: Timothy + Kristen

GUESTS: 200

PALETTE: Black, white, silver and gold. We wanted a mix of masculinity and elegance.

THE SUITS: Our suits were tailor made. I wore a black dinner suit with a full satin lapel, white shirt, bowtie and Prada shoes. Timothy wore a black herringbone suit with satin trim, white shirt, black satin tie and Christian Louboutin shoes.

THE CEREMONY: Our garden ceremony was detached, private and lush yet perfectly central in location. The set up of the beautiful park was everything we wanted. We chose Americana chairs and a black aisle runner. Timothy's father built the gazebo frame we were married under.

THE RECEPTION: We were the first same sex couple to have a wedding at our reception venue and the team went above and beyond to surpass any expectations. They allowed us to bring the lush greenery into their centre and transform the premises into an indoor garden.

THE DÉCOR: Tiziana and Adriana from the Bizzarro team were amazing. Open-air structures were built over sixteen tables and covered with fresh peppercorn branches to give the guest seating an intimate, outdoor gazebo feel. The remaining tables were decorated with custom-built trees to continue the 'indoor garden' theme. Each table was covered with floating candles placed in silver, gold and clear votives. We scattered candles across our table, which was also backed by box brush screening, man made trees and our signature 'TK' logo in the centre.

THE FLOWERS: Timothy, the groomsmen and myself wore black and white poppy boutonnieres. The girls held a single white peony bouquet and our parents wore phalaenopsis orchid boutonnieres and custom corsages.

PHOTOGRAPHER: We were flicking through an issue of Brides of Adelaide Magazine and came across B Captured by Ky Luu's advertisement. After seeing his incredible work, Timothy and I both agreed that he was it. We left Ky in complete artistic control and just followed his direction. We trusted his opinion and it truly worked in our favour. Our photos are a true testament as to how talented Ky is. He captured the most intimate and precious moments of the day whilst making us feel comfortable and relaxed, no matter what the setting. His dedication to his job is second to none.

WEDDING COLOUR STYLE - BLACK + BLUSH

7 December 2015

Some of the best wedding colour combinations we have seen pair a soft colour with a bolder one. For a truly stylish and romantic wedding, why not take into consideration black and blush pink together. Blush pink and black make a striking pair as pink adds a soft and ultra-feminine touch, while black is dark and sophisticated. When put together, you get a high contrast and high style palette that will add instant flair to your wedding.
