A fine art wedding is elegant and sophisticated, artistic, and romantic, whimsical, and graceful. Fine Art weddings are characterised by their thoughtful colour palettes, lush florals, luxe fabrics, and meaningful details.
These are my best and true wedding planning tips to help achieve the wedding of your dreams!
Stylish couples who appreciate fashion, beauty and an artistic vision are typically drawn to the fine art aesthetic. I believe however, a fine art wedding is for anyone who can appreciate the curated finer details.
It all starts with a beautiful venue. Your wedding venue is the backdrop to your event and sets the scene. Whether you’ve got your planner or not, it’s time to book on of the most important item on your planning list – the venue. Pick a place that speaks to your vision and then check that it has all your requirements and wishes. Think about your guest count, food quality, accessibility (for elderly guests), and lighting! If you want a light and ethereal wedding, my advice is, stay away from dark reception venues with distracting carpeting, red bricks walls, with no lightning sources like very small windows. Lightening is a key for beautiful light and airy wedding imagery. Here below are some of my favourite wedding venues across the UK for the romantic and elegant wedding.
Look out for: a formal or English style garden. A beautiful staircase. Pillars and ornate interiors. Oil paintings. Large fireplaces. Wooden or travertine floors. Natural setting such as flower garden or a meadow.
Fine art design includes choosing the right colours. To preserve the natural, romantic feel that typifies fine art weddings, colour palette most commonly includes whites, creams, golds, light pinks, warm greys, and pale blues. These colours will be the base for everything else in your wedding – your flowers, decorations, venue, invitations – everything! There is also place for bold colours like deep reds, juicy pinks, and yellows, but it is important to create a soft foundation for your design.
Now let’s talk about details which is also one of the important things to plan a fine art wedding. The finer details are the foundation of your wedding design. When planning a fine art wedding, I like to suggest focusing on the fine details. Below are a few ideas of elements to get you started on planning those small, yet timeless, details:
With the right combinations of colours, florals, and accents, I promise that your fine art design will leave you and your guests swooning over the romantic and unforgettable design.
