As the new wedding season approaches and the ecclectic styles are still prominent, I thought I’d share some of the beautiful Persian/Renaissance/Roccoco elements in a new up-coming collection, inspired by my summer holiday in Turkey last year. I’ve mainly incorporated pattern as this falls nicely into the renaissance category of the current influences, but some of the colours are stunning: Blue, red and aqua, highlighted and enhanced by gold and copper.
On the way back to the airport, after said holiday, we saw a beautiful courtyard being dressed for a wedding, so I thought I’d do some research into the differences/similarities a Turkish wedding celebration would be from a British one, and whether any of the stationey might be similar:
Western/modern Turkey follows a similar style to British and appears to have similar traditions as the Greek Orthodox. Dresses are mainly white, although I have seen evidence of all shades of pink from Baby to Cerise
Venues are styled very similarly to those for British Weddings, although there would seem to be an absolute abunance of flowers both as table decorations and around the room/outdoor seating area. The photos I’ve chosen are probably most like a British wedding as we kow it today. Take a look at how our styling has pinched some of the Turkish styling with the lanterns on the tables – beautiful!
