Wedding Thoughts :: Sparkles & Old Brass

In the second inspiration board which I put together for my niece
for her wedding in summer at the end of this year,
it is sparkles, lace & softly burnished golden tones.
A vanilla cake piped with golden butter cream,
simply garnished with olive leaves & roses.
Old brass coffee pots filled 
with honeysuckle, 
& softly-scented Bourbon roses of Champagne & blush.
A gown of satin, resplendent with sparkles & vintage lace.
Cocktails in the late afternoon,
afternoon tea served on lace-draped timber trays.
A celebration of gentle, simple beauty.

    This is going to be so much fun to watch you create - nothing I love more than a wedding theme. Beautiful.

  2. OH< that dress............with all the rhinestones on her back!

  3. Your taste is exquisite!!! The palette is gorgeous and that CAKE, WOW :) XO, Kelly

    1. Hello Kelly and welcome back to Blogworld! Your thoughts have been muchly missed. VB x

  4. How the flowers and the cake...fabulous!!

  5. Gorgeous oldy worldy veil(last image). Lovely flowers. This is fun. Look forward to seeing your niece's choice in the end!

  6. Stunning! Any idea where those fabulous earrings are from? Love them!

    1. Hi Kate, they are from BHLDN, from their current range. I think there isn't anything in their collection that isn't covetable - who needs to be a bride? I would wear these any day!

  7. What a beautiful collection of images...the dresses are stunning, I love the amazing detail...wonderfully inspirational x

  8. I hope your niece realises she will be sharing her wedding images with all the people who follow your blog?? You couldn't possibly give us these snippets then deny us the real thing!!! Rx

    1. Ah, yes I should probably warn her in advance that I'll have my camera at the ready! x
