Let’s be real. Styling your wedding can be the most stressful and outrageously overwhelming experience. It can also be a super fun, glorious and immensely rewarding endeavour. Like anything to do with weddings, it’s a real mixed bag. There will be highs and there will most definitely be lows.
We are here to make maximise the good times and abolish the bad, so today we are bringing you 25 super cool ceremony styling ideas in an effort to inspire. After all, this is your time to shine as a couple and reflect all the things you love and that bring you joy.
Aiming to please, we have covered all styles from elegant all-white florals through to vibrant pom-pom arbours and a ceremony worth of mismatched chairs. Whether you fancy a hanging arbour, floral installation or darling circular situation (like the epic one at the very bottom of this post by Melbourne fave Floral and Found), we’ve got you.
Now a gentle warning for you, about five ceremony setups down this list, you’re going to stumble across the wedding of one of our fave Sydney florists River & Eve that will simply knock your socks off (trust us, you’ll know it when you see it). Owner Kat’s creative direction for her own special day was mind-blowing beautiful and with the help of her pal Alice Beasley Flowers (who put together the arch, bouquets and bridal table so her pal could focus on enjoying her day ) these two talented women pulled off the mother of all ceremony stylings.
We are also shining some light on some of the best stylists in the biz, including our all-time fave floral wranglers Pia + Jade who concocted the rather glorious situation above (along with the three images directly below). This South Coast based wonder woman is a floral styling genius, who would have thought getting married in an attic space could look so good?! Add a spattering of autumnal florals and a few handmade fabric garlands. Voila!
You’ll also find goodies below from The Refined Bloom Co (get onto her super floral styling ways Victorian brides!) and Queensland legends Poppies for Willow (that second last round arch, oh my!). Fancy a destination wedding without the hassle? Hitch’d Bali has you sorted for sensational beachside set ups and sweet floral arbours.
We even have you sorted for venue inspo. Enjoy coastal soirees through to the urban indoor goodness whipped up by Melbourne stylists and hire folk Good Day Club and the sweet riverside venue, Audley Dance Hall (only an hour from Sydney’s BD yet deep in the Royal National Park)
The best part about this doozy of a round-up is the fact that you also get to peruse the work of some of the best wedding photographers in the biz. So when you finish up salivating over florals, arbours and petal-strewn aisles do get clicking on the credit list. For now, scroll pretty people…
