wedding styling ideas to the max –  Top 12 Wedding Styling Inspirations with Lemonbox Studios

2 January 2019

Wedding styling is no longer hired linens and chair sashes. It’s now an all-encompassing celebration of the two of you and your love story – it’s whole event design that catches your eye and takes your breath away and makes you feel like you’ve never been anywhere else but right there, right then.

Whether you’re having a music-inspired wedding, a wedding styled with Bauhaus vibes in mind, or you just wanna bring a whole skipload of Scandi to your barn venue, Lemonbox Studios are the ones who can make your dreams happen. Often described as ‘wedding architects’, their background in interior design means that your day will not only look picture-perfect but feel like the perfect fit for both of you too. It’s instaworthy, liveable magic.

They’ve been lovely enough to share 12 of their favourite, best-styled weddings from this year with us (and therefore you, dear readers) to help get your creative juices flowing for your own wedding styling. They’ve explained the inspos and the dream team they worked alongside to make it happen – many of whom are our suppliers too, so you can make your day a whole TWC love fest! Check them out below:


ONE – Romantic, Elegant Barn Wedding

Where do we even begin with this bad boy? A dream colour palette of deep rich burgundy, warm gold, dark peacock blues, cool grey and pretty blush; moody lighting, romantic candelight; soft rugs, beautifully contemporary stationery, and floral cloud-like installations…totally dreamy. And no wonder the table names are named after some of the best cities in the world – this is the kind of über-cool style capital cities attract in buckets!

TWO – Elegant Festival-Inspired Liberty Print Wedding with Meadow Florals

As musicians, the couple wanted music to be at the heart of their wedding day. With that in mind, Lemonbox crafted a wedding day with a festival vibe and an elegant look, using a vibrant colour palette, Liberty print inspirations, and epic wild meadow florals to bring it to life. Nothing was overlooked – check out that ruffled overhead installation as well as those table runners! (and that is not a sentence we say very often…)

THREE – Rural Clyde Wedding

With pastel tones and soft, elegant styling, this corrugated steel barn was transformed into a lush summer garden, for the perfect balance between industrial chic and rustic secret garden.

FOUR  – Quirky, Vintage-Inspired Wedding Without Being Twee

“Where do we even start with how truly wonderful it was to work on this wedding? The Bride’s personal style was the thing of dreams and we instantly knew this one was going to be an absolute belter. We got creative with clashing patterns, bold colours, quirky objects, vintage table lamps a plenty, bike wheels, hanging lamp shades and a ceiling installation that must be seen to be believed.”

Sleek black can seem like a really dark, heavy colour for a wedding but when used correctly it looks INCRED. Par exemple, mixed with marsala and blush tones in a super gritty venue, it looks amazing. Throw in towering, modern floral arrangements on the table and a super unique wedding backdrop crafted from gathered fabric and photo frames and you’ve nailed it.

This city wedding only had 10 guests but it didn’t scrimp on style. With a relaxed and rustic vibe, they used foliage, candles and natural textures to bring it all together. Nude fabric printed with a quote from The Chaos of Stars hung behind the table, and personalised timber boxes containing thoughtful keepsakes and gifts sat atop it.

“A celebration of line, shape and colour influenced by the Bauhaus movement and the city of Tel Aviv where our Bride and Groom currently reside, this wedding ticks all the boxes. Super lovely couple, awesome venue, cool concept, top team – all the greats! It was also the biggest table plan we have ever pulled off… and we mean it was B I G!” (Notoriously so, in fact.)

Combining Singaporean and Scottish influences, the Fife sun allowed for a beautiful and classic outdoor garden ceremony before an intimate dinner, decorated with fine art graphics and hanging baskets galore!

This rustic barn setting was adorned with beautiful contemporary, chilled out Scandi elements, including copper, blush tones, lush greenery, handmade geometric hanging pieces, stylish balloons and gorgeous hanging lights. “This one is a little bit special for lots of reasons. Firstly, we loved pulling this design together with all of it’s beautiful elements, and secondly, we’ve known the bride for like a million trillion years. Working for a pal (especially a fellow designer, a business owner and a top chick) makes it all the more worthwhile!”

Heartfelt, laidback, design-inspired love was the order of the day at this wedding. With the ceremony in a light and spacious eco tent and their family-style dinner and party reception in their local village hall, it was the epitome of relaxed but elegant wedding styling. Plus – “Welcome to all the wedding stuff” is our new fave sign. Ever.

What. A. Brief. Hey? “Drawing (see what we did there) on the rich colours along with the use of collections of objects, fruits, florals and gold frames, we created artwork that literally grew from the tables.”
