Move aside, boho. Sleek, elegant wed­dings are back

W hen it comes to mod­ern wed­dings, there’s a fresh fo­cus: clas­sic and pretty. It’s a look that sits well in a largely neu­tral set­ting – think a white-washed homestead or elegant, light-filled ball­room. This is all about a re­newed fo­cus on the tried-and-true: a strong sense of pol­ish, with­out the rigid­ity and con­ser­va­tive na­ture of con­ven­tional wed­ding styling. Think pretty, light-hearted and fem­i­nine, along­side all the el­e­ments of a time­less wed­ding.

Let your first step be to es­tab­lish a com­plete colour pal­ette – not just a sin­gle hue, which will only re­strict you fur­ther down the line. By all means choose a hero colour – such as blush – but flank it with com­ple­men­tary tones of ivory, fuch­sia and mul­berry, bring­ing in al­ter­na­tives of those shades to fur­ther en­hance a feel­ing of vari­a­tion.

Look to a sump­tu­ous mix of tex­ture, too: flo­ral ar­range­ments
