TRENDY SCANDI BRIGHT WEDDING IDEAS
Scandinavian style is a trend I find myself gravitating towards most! I love searching Pinterest for scandi inspiration for my home and just love how today’s inspirational team of suppliers, applied the theme to a wedding.
These bright and colourful ideas are a fun take on the Scandi style – full of vibrancy, intimacy and soul, and would give guests a total experience of Hygge, snuggled up in blankets and toasting marshmallows, dancing and playing guitar around the campfire.
“We held the shoot at the North Star Club in East Yorkshire.” Began planner & stylist April.
“The venue worked so well as there’s gorgeous woodland with luxury boutique lodges on site, and space for a tipi as well. We used the communal Woodshed for the shoot, which would be ideal if you were just having an intimate wedding with a handful of guests! Any venue with some beautiful outdoor woodland space would work brilliantly for this kind of wedding when paired with a tipi or a yurt!” She added.
“The ‘bride’ wore a floaty vintage dress with minimal detail and colourful clogs which is definitely the way forward for recreating this look (we love Lotta from Stockholm and Swedish Hasbeens clogs)! In terms of hair and beauty, we kept the make up really natural and earthy, and then for each different look, added detail in the bride’s hair with a crown braid, antique headpiece or a foliage crown.”
“In terms of decor, we used lots of macrame, mismatching chunky vases, natural textiles, wood, copper, bright colours and simple but beautiful flowers. I think long banqueting tables rather than round tables work best for this relaxed style, and if the weather is good enough for you to dine outside by candlelight and festoon lights then that’s even better!”
“You could even add a nod to Scandinavian food by including cinnamon buns on your dessert table, or you could go the whole hog and have your whole catering done in a scandi style! A Glogg station would probably go down quite well with your guests too!”
There were also quite a few DIY elements for the shoot, including the dip dyed napkins, the macrame ceremony backdrop, the ribbon chandelier over the cake table, the pink painted chair and some grey felt place mats.
“The chandelier, chair and the place mats were so easy, even a novice crater could take them on!” April told us.
“The backdrop and the napkins were a little more tricky, but with a bit of practice they’re not too scary to take on!” She added.
“Some top high street shops for recreating this look are Flying Tiger, Sostrene Grene, Habitat and of course, IKEA. The look isn’t very matchy matchy, so don’t be afraid of clashing colours, patterns or fabric! More is definitely more!”
