Fulham Palace is the perfect backdrop for these dreamy botanical inspired wedding styling ideas. Adorned in delightful wisteria at the time of the shoot, this stunning venue looks even more beautiful.

For me, flowers bring a wedding to life, and these floral ideas combined with the grandeur inside Fulham Palace create the most incredible styling. The pièce de résistance is the chuppah canopy created with gorgeous botanical greens mixed with pops of pink and peach.

With botanical elegance in mind, the stationery set oozes simplistic flair, using green watercolour and contemporary yet elegant calligraphy. The beautiful wedding cake continues the floral theme, and its four tiers of gold leaf and floral decoupage also give a nod to the splendour of Fulham Palace.

For the bridal styling, two gorgeous Katya Katya wedding dresses feature. The first is a romantic ball gown with sheer lace sleeves and keyhole back, the second a vintage inspired sheath silhouette capped sleeve dress. Both include floral detailing and work perfectly with the overall styling concept. Oh, and prepare to swoon over the bride’s fabulous gold glitter bow shoes by Charlotte Mills.

Kitty Wheeler Shaw captured these botanical inspired wedding styling ideas beautifully…

Heavily Botanical

“For some time I had ideas whizzing through my head to create a sumptuous, heavily botanical inspired wedding shoot with elements of Palm Springs and Waterhouse. I wanted our venue set-up and bride to look as though they came out of a Millais/Waterhouse scene, and dropped in Palm Springs, California.

“I hand-picked a team of luxury, fine-art wedding professionals who truly get the awesomeness involved with weddings. Together we wanted to capture the feelings and emotions of the steps leading up to the wedding. These included the build up to the ceremony, touching on the kiddushin (the first two stages of the Jewish wedding process), and the veiling of the bride. We also had the most stunning chuppah of magenta and peach peonies, jasmine, café au lait dahlias, vuvuzela roses and eucalyptus nicholii. We used a palette of botanical deep greens mixed with dirty vintage blush and peach, hints of magenta and shocks of luxe gold.”

Unwaveringly Romantic

“Our Jewish consultant was our wonderful stationer, Zoe at The Golden Letter. She made sure everything was true to Jewish culture and ceremony preparation. The modern Hebrew touches on the invites she created echoed this, as did my choice of gowns from the Katya Katya Shehurina Morning Mist collection – feminine and unwaveringly romantic, while modest.

“As well as the setting, I wanted the bride to completely capture everyone’s attention. Drawing on the fine-art aesthetic, I wanted her skin to be clean, dewy and effortless, and for her eyes to have a sophisticated edge and glint with every downward glance. I used varying shades of Bobbi Brown’s sparkle eyeshadow to achieve this, and the skin serum foundation. Kitty Wheeler Shaw and Irene Piera Films beautifully captured every detail and emotion.

“Throughout the curation of this shoot my thoughts revolved around ‘what would I want for my wedding day if I could do it all over again (and were Jewish)?’ I think that’s ultimately what should guide your wedding planning. Take elements of everything you love and want involved in your celebration and put them in the hands of suppliers you love and trust.”
