When it comes to weddings, there are countless types of venues and schemes to choose from. Regardless of the tone and vibe you opt for, there are certain touches you can add to create the editorial style wedding photography of your dreams. Here are five ideas to help incorporate that luxurious feeling into your day:

Flowers and greenery at your luxury wedding

Flowers are a timeless wedding feature, with bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids, boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen and floral arrangements adorning the ceremony space or church. To achieve a luxurious ambiance, embrace the mantra “the more, the merrier”. Flowers have the power to create a beautiful atmosphere and seasonal florals in muted tones alongside an abundance of locally foraged greenery can create an instantly luxurious look.

The value of a wedding planner in creating editorial style wedding photography

While many venues provide an in-house wedding coordinator, hiring a freelance wedding planner offers an additional layer of expertise in creating a truly magical day. Importantly, it allows you the freedom to share your preferences and ideas, knowing that they will be executed flawlessly. On the wedding day, having a professional on hand to handle any potential stress ensures you can relax and enjoy the best day of your life. This luxury knows no bounds.

Add a hint of fun and playfulness with a champagne tower

For a delightful touch of glamour at your luxury wedding, consider incorporating a champagne tower. Watching champagne cascade down the tiers as your pour it from above adds an element of opulence to your celebration. Moreover, the resulting images captured by wedding photographers are often cherished memories. If you’re not particularly fond of the traditional cake-cut, the champagne tower provides an excellent alternative. And if you’re feeling extra indulgent, why not do both?

Opt for a black tie dress code

While three and two-piece suits can look fabulous, opting for black tie can add a touch of luxury that regular suits simply cannot match. Encourage the groom, groomsmen and invited guests to don black tie for an effortlessly cool and sophisticated look. As the evening progresses, the sight of a casually undone bowtie around the neck will further enhance the ambiance and contribute to memorable evening shots.

Enhance the musical experience

Most weddings feature a band or DJ, beginning with the first dance and continuing well into the night. To create an even more luxurious atmosphere, consider incorporating music during other elements of the your incredible day, such as the drinks reception, meal and even the ceremony. Adding background music, such as chilled acoustic tines during a sunny afternoon reception, can elevate the experience for you, your friends, and your family. Live music has a unique charm that contributes to an element of luxury and sophistication.
