In a world where everyone is talking about all the ways we can make a wedding modern, sometimes it is nice to look at things differently. And nothing quite says beauty like an old school, classic black tie wedding.

And nothing says classic wedding than paying homage to the old wedding tradition of “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” and it was this, that Perth wedding florist, Jappalin of Flowertalk wanted to bring to life with today’s styled shoot. “The inspiration for this styled shoot was drawn from the saying of “something blue” in hopes to represent love, purity and fidelity which some say are the three key qualities for a solid marriage” she explains.

Set at the historic, and beautiful Laurelville Manor in York and with Norman Yap Photography behind the camera, the team embraced the old world style of the manor and brought it to life with beautiful blue elements.

The tablescape and Brittney’s bouquet were centred around the blue hue of the Tweedia flower. The tablescape is set with blues and bright, summery yellow to embrace the warmth of the Western Australian summer. Says Jappalin “The Tweedia flower was used to represent “something blue” and was paired with a colour palette of white and yellow to enhance the soft yet bright tones to compliment a summer soiree. The floral combination included Anthurium, Dahlia, Roses, Michaelmas Daisy and Hydrangeas along with preserved blue Ming Fern foliage.”

The beauty continued with classic letterpress stationery, in blue, but of course, designed by Bright Press. And their wedding cake, in simple white by Sieve & Stone adorned with an oversize blue ribbon from Her Beautiful Mess, the finishing touch.

Our models, Brittney Morriss & Markus Shaidar donned elegant pieces. Brittney in a veil & bow-adorned ballgown from Samantha Wynne and sparkling jewels from Cygnet Bay Pearls & Pearls Of Australia.

The bride’s look finished by hair and makeup artist Nadia Duca who styled Brittney with a sleeve twisted bun and elegant makeup with deep, dark eyes.

There is a reason why classic weddings are never out of style, and this editorial will have you embracing all the beauty of timeless wedding style.
