There’s something special about classic black and white, so elegant and understated.

I love the idea of mixing this unmistakably modern and sophisticated palette with a rustic twist keeping everything highly polished, but in an unexpected setting mixing old and new.

Styling Tips

– Location for creating this look is key. Look for somewhere with a natural rustic feel with lots of potential for glamorous decoration.

– Hurricane lamps, hay bales and fabulous sequin throws will look gorgeous styled in a formal way. Tie it all together with black ribbons, black and white bakers twine and modern graphic wedding signage.

– White anemones are the perfect choice for this look. Use alone for a real statement or mix with white ranunculus and sweet peas for pretty bouquets and centrepieces.

– Keep outfits chic and contemporary with black tie and cocktail dresses.
