A fine art wedding is a romantic and elegant affair. Composed of natural tones and whimsical touches, this style is rewarding for any bride and groom. If this sounds like your dream wedding, check out our tips on bringing it to life.
What is a fine art wedding
Fine art has recently become a very appealing wedding style. Wedding and event planner Jessie Thomson says:
“Recently within the wedding industry there has been a huge movement of artists whom are dedicated to creating weddings that are so much more tangible and personal within the luxury market – moving away from anything remotely ostentatious and focusing instead on guest experience and quality ingredients. From organic food, to artisan decor, themes and styling inspired by nature, and photo albums full of movement and light.”
A delicate fine art wedding will be a showcase of beautiful flowers, pastel ribbons, soft delicate fabrics and warm, natural vibes. Indulge in fine art inspiration with these sophisticated ideas for a perfect wedding day.
Fine art bridal elegance
When it comes to bridal gowns, think simple, elegant sophistication. Silk, lace and chiffon in crisp white, light cream or vanilla will look dreamlike with a draped V neckline. Fine art styles are delicate, so add a few subtle pieces of silver jewellery in a filigree design.
The fine art movement began in the late 19th and early 20th century. That means bridal hair should be of Victorian or Edwardian style. Soft, effortless up-dos and natural flowing locks are both suitable, and you can finish the look with flowers or jewellery.
When it comes to your post nuptial celebrations, the fine art wedding has a romantic and unstructured look that will wow your guests.
Beautiful naked and semi-naked cakes, delicate pink macarons and intricate cakes with fine sugar work offer an elaborate yet understated look. Adorn your tables with brass candles holders and bowls of delicious sugared fruit. Wildflowers, pink roses and foliage build a rustic element.
Fine art photography
Fine art photography should look light and dreamy. Fine art wedding photographers Belle and Beau explain the beauty of this style of photography:
“[It’s] very different to most wedding photography…often noted for its softness and beautiful light but in particular, it’s warm, bright, pastel colour palette. We love to artistically combine elements of nature, beautifully honest, raw emotion and our knowledge of light and colour to create a cohesive collection of magazine worthy images that will only increase in value over time.”
We hope that these ideas will help you when planning your own fine art wedding.
