Wedding moodboard: summer haze

Wedding moodboard: summer haze

Written by Katie Byrne

Nothing quite says hazy summer sun than a palette of coral, peach and gold...


Fall in love with the modern-rustic styling of this shoot, which took place on a private Californian ranch.

In particular, especially if you’re planning a marquee or tipi reception, the vibrant colour palette and seasonal blooms work perfectly for late summer celebrations.  

Gold-footed vases overflowing with bouquets of king protea, dahlias, roses, peonies, succulents, veronica, asters and seeded eucalyptus help create bright and bold centrepieces, and make the most of the giant dahlias by using the heads to top your cake and place settings.

Keep your table styling simple – a few cut-glass votives set upon plain white linen is the perfect accompaniment to your metallic details; gold charger plates and brass goblets topped with succulents.

Old wooden or wrought-iron furnishings can be used to showcase focal points such as your cake table. 

Turn it into a real feature with the addition of colourful vintage books and a few fresh peaches in a nod to the season and colour scheme. Here comes the sun, indeed!
