How To Curate A Fine Art Wedding

How To Curate A Fine Art Wedding

Set within the lakefront Shoreby Club on Lake Erie in Ohio, this editorial delivers fine art wedding inspiration in abundance. The setting, teamed with the soft cornflower blue and pale peach colour palette, effortlessly transports us to the likes of Italy’s Lake Como, showcasing just how easy it is to bring a European style to an American wedding. Thank you to Belinda Jean Photography for documenting the shoot, using film photography to really capture the timeless feel it encompassed. The soft ethereal photography works hand in hand with the fine art vibe, so we welcome you to browse through the gallery and devour every image!

Bride Holding David Austin Wedding Bouquet

We adore seeing how our couples embrace outdoor space, from floral archways to endless photograph opportunities.  Drawing inspiration from the history, culture and architecture of Lago di Como, Floral Designer Pieter Bouterse Studio created a heart-stoppingly beautiful floral display using Juliet David Austin Wedding Roses. The big, blousy blooms added a dash of grandeur and sumptuousness, while the foliage complemented it with enchanting country garden vibes. The peach and cream rose bridal bouquet was full of quiet elegance to complement the simple lines of the Monique Lhuiller gown, whilst the Juliet bloom mirrored the statement sleeves. 

If you are planning a fine art wedding or want to channel a European style celebration no matter where in the world you may be, we suggest incorporating the same floral design throughout the entirety of your wedding day. From the bridal bouquet to the ceremony, table centrepieces to the place settings.

It seems that the wedding industry in 2022 will still be heavily influenced by the likes of Bridgerton, with subtle literary-inspired touches and fashion from that time-period making its way into couples’ nuptials for the year ahead. This editorial perfectly depicts this, with puff sleeves making an appearance and a pair of classic heels by Something Bleu to complete the look. You could also opt to wear traditional gloves, dainty tiaras or a gown with an empire waistline to really offer a nod towards the fashion during that time.

Regency Blue was the signature shade of that era, and you can expect to see this distinctive shade used throughout celebrations next year – be that stationery, florals, linen and décor. Your wedding stationery will offer guests a subtle glimpse of what’s to come. Thick, luxurious paper with a personalised wax seal will instantly set the scene for a fine art feel. Sugared Fig Paperie crafted a custom stationery suite for the shoot, utilising the blue and peach palette. We also adore the idea of handwritten love letters or personalised vows that have been carefully written – another touch of Bridgerton-esque romance, perhaps.

Wedding Table Outdoor Spaces

Antique-esque blue tableware and delicately coloured blue and peach glassware will work in harmony with the rose filled table centrepieces, weaving the colour through every element. 

Your wedding cake will have just as much impact as the rest of your décor if you are trying to recreate a fine art feel.  For the editorial, the talented Alexa Robba Cake designed a three-tier edible masterpiece, inspired by the Toile de Jouy textile.

Utilising various elements, such as considered colour palettes, traditional textures and patterns and delicate florals, will allow you to embrace your setting and create a fine art wedding that is worthy of royalty.
