A dreamy wedding inspiration with butterflies and many hidden details
Nature has created the most beautiful and stunning places, flowers, trees and animals. Butterflies are one of those wonderful creatures. They are so delicate and fragile, but they are able to make a great impression due to the beautiful colors and patterns. With those pretty little butterflies, it was very easy to feel inspired and creative. Of course, we did not use actual butterflies. Instead, a very talented artist came all the way from the Ukraine to share her stunning silk butterflies. Sometimes, when a soft breeze came, the butterflies came to life and started flap their wings. So please enjoy this wedding inspiration and the small details!
When the spirit of nature touches us, our hearts turn into a butterfly. – Mehmet Murat Ildan
Just like a lush garden – butterflies everywhere
The butterflies awaken when the sun is finally there to warm us up and the flowers spread a fresh scent. We incorporated the butterfly theme in every aspect of the wedding decoration. Starting with the table decoration, which is in a peachy color palette. Lush centerpieces combine beautiful and fun flowers with long grasses that look like butterfly antennas. Little velvet details remind of the fluffy bodies of butterflies. Even the vessels have a connection to the butterflies. The pattern of the golden flower vessels resembles the scaly structure of a wing.
This wedding inspiration combines both the obvious and the hidden. The two tier wedding cake comes in plain white so that the butterflies can unfold their beauty without any distraction.
Pretty colors to match the pretty butterflies
To emphasize this theme, we went with soft colors such as peach, yellow, pink and light blue. These soft but happy colors are perfect for a spring wedding or a summer wedding with a bunch of flowers. Gold as the accent color matches the golden wings of some butterflies.
The motif continues in the bride’s styling
The bridal gown, which is from famous German designer Kaviar Gauche, has 3D butterflies on it. The lightweight fabric also includes the shooting’s topic by reminding of sensitive and delicate wings of butterflies. The wedding inspiration contains a cohesive concept with small details, so the bride is wearing romantic accessories such as a butterfly veil, a butterfly necklace and butterfly earrings. Butterflies are so subtle that you can add a lot of them and it won’t be overstated. Instead, the lightness just intensifies.
A light and airy greenhouse wedding venue
To create a cohesive and detailed concept and a wonderful garden atmosphere, we chose an old greenhouse, where palm trees of a nearby castle where stored during the colder months of the year and often butterflies are bred. A greenhouse is the perfect wedding venue when you want a strong influence of nature in your wedding concept. With our butterfly theme, it was a match made in heaven. On the shooting day, it was very hot so it really felt like we were somewhere in a tropical region, sharing the day with these beautiful creatures.
