Vintage Chic

Hair & Makeup

Our vintage chic bride is one of the prettiest, and most accessible make-up trends for this season. Think of English rose, soft and romantic tones. Whether you pair this with a smokey eye or a natural face, this hue is the new nude for this season brides.

Florals 

Spring/Summer Weddings for 2016 sees the continuation of the popular ‘Wild and Whimsical’ look, with varying colour palettes. This season we are  a seeing slight variation on this with the introduction of more vibrant colours combined with the pastel tones. For a Bride that is wanting a real ‘Luxe’ look for their special day, A full, juicy bouquet with plenty of variety in it is going to be a popular option this season for that real summery, abundant look.

Cakes

The vintage chic bride stands out and her cake needs to do the same. So for this cake I used hundreds of shiny silver sugar balls to attract and draw the eye. The top two tiers were similar, with the bottom tier featuring whimsical roses edged with silver. Colour can also be bought into this type of cake to match bridesmaid dresses and/or flowers.

Classic

Hair & Makeup

This might be a classic, but the low bun has really come back for this season among loose updos, soft chignons, and boho waves. This classic look is always a stunning an elegant way to frame the face paired with the seductive and timeless red lip.

Florals

The timeless Classic Bridal look of ‘Cream and Green’ is a trend for the season, and for a twist on the classic look, many brides are opting to mix it up slightly with different, less commonly used types of cream flowers to create a bit of an edge and modernisation.

Cakes

For the classic bride cake, I decided on a white on white cake with detail representative of bridal dress trends. The top tier plain but shimmering, middle tier a band of gorgeous lace and the bottom tier made up of hundreds of blossoms to mimic the crushed fabric look. A single open sugar rose completes the look.

Relaxed

Hair & Makeup

Relaxed bride is exactly that think of effortless, natural, wavy, textured locks with a simple hair piece that is not fussy but pretty all the same. Well groomed brows and soft earthy tones are a must too pull off this look.

Florals

We are also starting to see increasingly, brides who are after something to make a statement but on a more relaxed scale. This has seen the introduction of gorgeous ‘all foliage bouquets’ which create wow factor through the use of varied colours and tones mixed with varied textures. For the ultimate Relaxed Bohemian type look, combine with a matched Foliage Crown.

Cakes

For the relaxed bride cake, I couldn’t look past the very popular naked cake. This cake is all about taste and simplicity. A simple arrangement of fresh flowers and foliage complete the look, berries and edible flowers are also a gorgeous option to adorn the naked cake.
