Each place setting had a single black and white feather placed on the napkin. Table centre pieces altered between  white feathers and crystal candelabras. The dance floor was a custom creation with Lisa and Mark’s monogram.

The Wedding of Lisa and Mark by Inshot Productions

Today’s wedding of Lisa and Mark is full of glitz and glamour. There are crystals, there are sparkles, there are feathers! But you will not see one single flower in today’s wedding. The flower free wedding was a little more dramatic- using a colour palette of black and white, Lisa and Mark used feathers and crystals instead!

Today’s wedding was shot by Natasja Kremers Photography, videography by Inshot Productions and event coordination by Cathrin of Cathrin D’Entremont Weddings.

The happy colours of raspberry and lemon spring to mind here with touches of soft grey in furry plant leaves, such as Artemesia or lambs ears. With a background of off-white or soft cream, add raspberry and lemon in sashes, shoes and flowers. This colour scheme can be sleek and modern, with raspberry as the main colour and lemon and pearl grey as the accents.  Or bring out the old fashioned girl in you – think lemon ballerina length full skirted dresses in lemon chiffon with raspberry sashes and shoes, or bridesmaids frocks in a 1920’s flapper style embellished with beading.

Flower girls in raspberry or lemon fairy dresses with wands and headbands of sparkles in the other colour, jewels of raspberry gem stones surrounded by sparkles, raspberry coloured candles set amongst soft lemon flowers.  Think frangipani  (plumeria) – especially the variety that has the raspberry pink flowers with touches of yellow in the petals, orchids, daisies, snap dragons, roses such as ‘Raspberry Ice’ or ‘Sutter’s Gold’, even some varieties of ginger plants.

Desserts of raspberry or lemon ice creams, sorbets, tarts, sauces, big bowls of raspberries or jellies. Sour lemon sweets or sherbets as favours, raspberry jam or lemon butter – homemade of course presented in pretty old fashioned jars.

Lots of silver ware on tables for the glitter effect, soft lemon napkins tied with raspberry coloured ribbon, lemon chair covers or cushions with raspberry piping and your boys sporting lemon or raspberry socks!

I am really loving the beautiful organic feel of these pieces by Australian jeweler Madeleine Brown. Madeleine’s been creating jewellery for the past seven years and is inspired by patterns in nature, unusual textures and mechanical movements. The ring above is supposed to represent tree branches or flowing streams of water.

Based out of QLD, Madeleine creates beautiful pieces displayed in galleries across Australia or can create a customised piece just for you. Madeleine will meet with you to understand your needs, sketch your design and then hand make it.

I especially like reading the inspiration behind Madeleine’s pieces on her website. Like the story of Martine and Blairy who had a ring craft to look like the washer Blairy proposed with. Or the beautiful ring commissioned by Elizabeth who wanted the piece to represent the four generations of her family. Each part is layered and has secret black diamonds. Natalie and Dan even made their own rings with the help of Madeleine.

You can read more stories and see more of Madeleine’s work (and stockists) at her website.
