A 1920s SAME-SEX WEDDING

Myself and Hettie from “The Floral P.A” decided to work together on the most stunning day in September 2019 at the spectacular Euridge Manor Venue.

As written by Hettie, the design for our styling was based on a “Young/edgy” feel “...that pushed the boundaries of today’s society.” As a collection of suppliers, we all feel incredibly strongly and passionate about promoting the LGBTQ+ community, especially within the Wedding Industry. We came up with a raw, yet glamorous design which works well with our couple.”

We wanted to share this day as our styling and concept were “...designed to inspire all couples and showcase romance, lust and love in its purest form.“ - Hettie The Floral P.A.

Hettie and I wanted a colour palette with “Deep, sumptuous purple and vibrantly daring reds...” “...crucial for our Winter berry 1920’s gothic glamour Wedding design. We have traits of the old school 1920’s era seeping through the seams” the styling for our Brides' consisted of “beautiful beaded dresses, moody makeup, crisp white feathers, and bursts of pink pineapples. We have elegant silverware, such as the candelabra, with the goblets and glass decanters setting the tone for a sharp and clean table scape sat upon the raw wood table. In the background we have the contrasting coloured peacock carpet which adds drama courtesy of its striking and vibrant red & and cobalt blue swirls. This is no ordinary Wedding – for this is one which oozes mystery.” Hettie The Floral P.A.

Hettie’s speciality is florals and so it was important to her that we focused on “Dried florals” which in Hettie’s words… “Are all the rage. We are all trying to do our best where the environment is concerned - unfortunately, it is inevitable that fresh flowers will die, and will then be left to waste away and deteriorate. However, by allowing the flowers to naturally come to the end of their life, we can still let them live on, in a different form. A mixture or dried out flowers can help make the perfect wild and natural bouquet which will last and can be held onto for years to come. They also make for a dramatic backdrop due to their alternative natural tones, shapes, and textures. This is a trend I believe won’t be going out of fashion anytime soon.”

Hettie’s three Top Tips for Creating This Look for Your Own Wedding…

  • You can never have too many candles. The subtle flickers from the flames enhance the feelings of lust & romance. Not only do they set the scene, but they also uplift the darkest of rooms and spaces. As a styling technique it’s crucial to visit a venue prior to the Wedding Day, and with the Photographer if possible (which I always recommend doing too!). In doing so, you are able to work with one another to source out the sweetest spots and bring them to life with your creative eye. 

  • Don’t be shy of silverware. Yes, when it comes to silver, we may think of our kitchen cutlery, or how dated and dull it can look. But these days you can find the most wonderful silver gems, such as punch bowls, gravy pourers and goblets all in your local charity shops which make it super easy to create an indulgent look on a budget.

  • It’s all in the detail. No matter how big or small, props and styling items are crucial for a themed Wedding. Do your research and think about the finer details. Not only have pineapples been a huge trend these past few years, but they were also a major statement piece back in the 1920s when pineapples were seen to be an item of luxury. We’ve managed to incorporate them within the floral and greenery garland, which creates a fun twist alongside a pop of colour. It’s safe to say that they were a huge success with everyone.
