Shades of green wedding inspiration with gypsophila
You know those moments when someone asks you if you’d like to be a part of a project that feels totally up your street. Well this is one of those moments for me. The fact that my own wedding colours were white and sage green, was just the icing on the cake. So, when one of my photographer friends ask me if I want to help style the model on a photoshoot for wedding inspiration where the colour theme is shades of green with gypsophila… well, I’ll be there!
Hi, I’m Becky, the creative director and owner here at Laurel Lime and I love to design and create thoughtful and romantic wedding hair accessories and jewellery for the heartfelt understated bride. And when I’m not doing this, I love to help other wedding industry artists to create beautiful and imaginative photoshoots to inspire brides and couples for their own wedding day.
sage greens, soft whites and gypsophila – a fine art canvas
Green wedding colour palettes and gypsophila white flowers are two of the most popular wedding trends and have been for a long time; and 2024 weddings will be no different. But there is a good reason they are so popular. This colour and flower combo is so versatile and timeless. Sage green and gypsophila evoke a sense of nature and beauty, and it is a very adaptable style that can create a variety of romantic looks.
The shades of green wedding brief
I was approached by my friend and talented photographer Jo, from Iris and Ivy Photography about doing a shoot at the beautiful historical Davenport House in Staffordshire. The brief and mood board featured warm golds, silky sage green, and soft whites in a fine art style. And all the styling and floristry would be provided by the wonderful Lucy from April & Bloom who has recently launched her styling package, as well as all the florals.
A wedding of natural beauty with greens and whites
Jo and Lucy were keen on a modern, fine art, and cohesive style. And the details needed to create a beautifully simple, and elegant aesthetic to complement the fairy-tale grade I listed, Georgian Davenport House, with it’s stunning decorative room detailing and captivating grounds.
Using the historical country house sympathetically decorative interior backdrop, Lucy used the natural light, lit candles and ruffled table runners to create an evocative and elegant statement that would suit such a beautiful venue.

A touch of nature with Gypsophila and pearl wedding accessories
Choosing accessories for this inspirational photoshoot wasn’t too difficult. I wanted to evoke a sense of nature and beauty, and with the variety of romantic styles that Charlotte from Charlotte Holder Hair stylist had planned, I needed to keep the accessories simple.
gypsohila style baby’s breath hair pins
My ever popular Baby’s breath hairpins obviously had to put in an appearance. How could I not include them. They are designed to look like hand picked baby’s breath flowers from the garden for an informal bridal look, right down to a delicate stem to slide into the hair. These made the perfect complimentary accessory for the bridal look.
I also made some earrings especially for the shoot, which I intend to add to my 2024 wedding jewellery collection. Their natural imperfect beauty helped to transform the sleek, inviting and minimalist bridal gowns that were chosen for the photoshoot.

I chose two headdresses from my 2024 collection for the bridal hair down style – Noelle and Venice. Each has their unique styles with handmade clay flowers and freshwater pearls. Each enchanting in their decadence and beauty. As the bridal gowns were unembellished and had very clean lines to them, I wanted the headdresses to have some fullness to them and create a look that was timeless and luxurious.
white Wedding cake of dreams inspiration
Charlotte from Perfect Cakes Co took the ‘white’ brief literally. She was inspired by the ceramicist Leah Kaplan , famous for her style of movement, texture and translucency, and wanted to embrace light and shadows with sculptural simplicity.

Having a white wedding cake? Then make it ‘a statement, make it minimal and make it modern’. Then draw inspiration from the wedding day styling and embrace it. Gypsophila flowers were used to decorate the cake table and blend the details seamlessly.
