Modern Rustic London Wedding Ideas
Hey brides, this time we are bringing you a city wedding styled shoot that we did in London. This ‘Modern & Rustic Romance’ inspiration shoot features rich foliage, luxe gold accents and aims to fuse elements of modern style and rustic design for a timeless and elegant wedding day aesthetic. This shoot has been featured on our beloved Whimsical Wonderland Weddings blog.
In this shoot we used our dress Lucie, it has a lace top and a white chiffon skirt. which has a great balance of detail and simplicity and suited the modern rustic theme very well.
There were two venues for this shoot, which is great inspiration for couples that will be having two venues for their own weddings. The ceremony shots were at Asylum Chapel and the reception images are taken at AMP Studios, both of which are located in South London with less than a mile between each other.
When developing the concept of ‘modern rustic’, the stylist Kelsey from Stone and Co Events drew inspirations from wooden features, organic textures, metallic accents and matte finishes which combined, were the primary features of this this airy and ethereal shoot at the naturally beautiful settings.
Gwenda from Bohotanical added robust fresh and faux florals in a mix of muted and moody hues along with some neutral greenery for a refined and rustic look, and we loved how she used trailing ivy to frame the altar of the Chapel. The selection of high quality faux florals not only allowed us to showcase a selection of blooms that weren’t in season but they’re also eco-friendly and an ideal option for the budget savvy bride.
The modern tablescape was achieved by pairing matte black plates with gold chargers and flatware, and was complemented beautifully by the black cotton rag and gold leaf stationery by Scritto. The sage green, hand-dyed muslin linens by Unity Styling added some softness and texture while the wooden trestle table provided a ‘nod’ to traditional rustic design.
