These red, navy and gold wedding ideas in this inspiration shoot have got my eyes boggling at the beautiful blooms and rich colourful tones. I love the contrast of the bright navy and white table cloth, the blooms spilling over the table in shades of red and raspberry and the shimmering gold accents – from the bride’s glowy eyeshadow, to the charger plates and cake pops.

Objektiv Photography joined with Jen’s Floral DesignsSnow White Cakes, Moss & Spy and Anja Dragovic at Harold Boas Gardens, Perth. to create a shoot that in photographer Marina’s words was “A combination of “Modern Nautical, Enchanted Forest and Glam Vegetables”.

Marina remembers, “As the ‘piece de resistance’ there was an asymmetrical floral crown, which was so comfortable, that after hours of shooting, Anja forgot it was on her head and nearly walked off with it. Jen decided to do an asymmetrical floral crown which suited the gown and hairstyle. Anja also commented on the lovely fragrance from the flowers when she wore it. David Austin roses for the were the focal point of the crown, with Christmas bush, spray roses, amaranthus and orchids used to great effect.”

Jen’s Floral Designs created the lush floral arrangements, Marina explaining, “Jen combined a number of flowers, from red roses, to lilies, berries, branches, all the way to banana flowers! The reds, the burgundies, pinks and purples, are such a rich and opulent palette, and combined with the striking stripe, and gold details, they absolutely sing. Tree stumps, logs, moss, fruit and vegetables were incorporated to add interest to the setting.”

Snow White Cakes created the sweet treats for the shoot, Marina remarking, “Snezana from ‘Snow White Cakes’ wanted to play with gold for her creation. She made a two tiered wedding cake, gold on top and white with delicate rice paper flowers brushed with gold on the bottom. The candied apples were also eye candy in their rich red. She also made the most elegant cake pops, which were a combination of white a gold, and which after the shoot disappeared in a blink! They’re not your kiddie cake pops, these things are rich and full of flavour, perfect for a wedding.”

“Carrying on with the theme, we decided to do something different with the bouquet. We used a mixture of flowers and vegetables to create a unique and interesting variety of colours and textures. The flowers used were calla lilies, David Austin roses, dahlias, berries, carnations, veronicas and trailing amaranthus, while kale and radishes were placed in prominent positions in the bouquet. The radishes poked out like large buds while the kale was a fantastic substitute for traditional greenery, offering a lovely texture without looking out of place.”

“The table ‘landscape’ kept evolving with details, fruit, flowers and in the end lush lovely moss, with a few candles as the sun was setting. In the background Jen hung a few different samples of floral decorations, a ball of flowers, a string of rose petals, and a few darling small jars with single flowers. These are very popular for ceremonies, we’ve also seen her do them in striking yellow!”
