I am super excited to share with you today (drum roll please)… ‘The Wedding Collective.’ An inspiring team of collaborators put together especially for you by Whiter than White and wedding planners, Knot & Pop. As you may well know, we love nothing more than a beautifully collated mood board to inspire your celebration and it got us thinking, lets gather a rather special team to showcase the very best of a theme and the most creative of wedding concepts. We took one fun idea and asked a collective of four talented collaborators to each compile a mood board putting their own spin and signature style on things. Including everything from flowers and fashion to decorations and stationery, we’ve got it all covered.
The Wedding Collective includes wow wedding dress designers Belle & Bunty, flower goddess The Flower Drum, event designers, Knot & Pop and Whiter Than White Weddings.
We are kicking things off today with a ‘Scene Setter’ mood board, colour palette and story collated by Knot & Pop and yours truly. Every day throughout this week, each of the collective will be sharing their own interpretation of the theme across their own mood board, providing you with lots of interesting and intriguing inspiration to explore. The super stylish girls from Belle & Bunty have the fashion side of things covered tomorrow with their dress board followed by Susie and Claire from Knot & Pop decking out the decorations board on Wednesday. We are then heading on over to Australia for a floral explosion from Holly at The Flower Drum before concluding on Friday with lots of paper prettiness in my Stationery board. Let me tell you, you’re in for a treat as these mood boards are super gorgeous!
So, what’s the theme?
We’re all longing for a bit of sunshine right? Well, on this imaginary couple’s Around the World trip, that’s exactly what we get. The theme is set around the couple themselves; uber cultured and with a love of travel, they have long dreamed of taking a sabbatical from work and what better time than after their wedding, when they can embark on the most ultimate of honeymoon’s – a trip Around the World taking in some of their most lust worthy locations. With this life-long dream that they’re now sharing together, we wanted to theme the wedding based upon this exciting adventure.
Theme: Around the World Wedding
The wanderlust couple have their sights set on lands full of culture, scenic beauty, delicious local foods and endless explorations. Starting in Morocco where their senses will be set alive with the busy markets – the smell of exotic spices igniting the senses, the Moorish architecture and the beautiful traditional mosaic tiles. Vibrant colours reminiscent of an African sunset pervade the colour palette as burnt oranges and rich reds mix with golden hues and sea aquas. From the tip of Africa to the toe, the couple continue to South Africa for a Safari. Their love of animals take them to a park for endangered species, where they stay with the sanctuary in Safari tents under the vast South African sky and stars. After South Africa a flight to Bali to see the undulating rice paddies of Ubud and relax at a yoga retreat. A time to unwind, Bali will be spent immersed in the unique Balinese local culture and the Hindu rituals. The famed wood carvings and gold and silver crafts on the region will also be sampled, with visits to local artisans to see the hand-crafting. The final destination will be America to see the sights of the Navajo Nation to see the unparalleled beauty of the region, it’s historical monuments, tribal parks and intricate crafts. The bright light of Los Angeles then beckon, before flying back to England.
The scene is set and here it is, the first of five dreamy mood boards heading your way this week that have inspired all of our creative collaborators…
