Penny has the most incredible range of decorations, accessories and props to add a unique touch to your wedding day. We’ve got the lowdown from Penny on the 2018 trends to keep your eyes peeled for next year, wonderfully illustrated with two styled shoots, Wild Bohemia and Structured Femininity..


Wild Bohemia; full of natural, unruly beauty. For those free-spirited brides and boys who dream of walking bare-foot up the aisle on battered Persian rugs. Taking cues natural found materials, wood, wickers and soft linens. A bold but natural palette born from the earth and lots of textural interest; a richness of deep mulberry, warm mustard, pale ash dust and soft pinks make up the colour rang. Dull highlights of vintage brass and copper with an abundance of candlelight finished the look. Naked tipis for ceremony focus dressed with flowers and foliage and draped with taupe cotton fabric twisting around the poles. Flowers look wild, asymmetric and untamed with a mix of unusual textures with a base of dark. Bridal separates are still the go-to boho girl look, with soft loose tousled hair and sprigs of fresh flowers tucked in. Opt for a strong make-up look with glittering eyes and bold lip and go from day to night with animal head dresses for you and your guests. A dark and decadent chocolate and bourbon semi-naked drip stacked cake with fresh florals and finish table tops with heaps of brass and candle light on top of an open crochet or macramé runners.


A contemporary, minimal feel with modern feminine fashion. Luxe but simple details with striking honeycomb structures with large, billowing floral arrangements. With lots of textural and tactile flowers and foliage using Pampas grass to really shape the arrangements. A palette of washed taupe, dusky pink and a dark inky blue adds some edge, mixing linens of cotton, linen and velvet through the shoot plus brass and gold candle holders for timeless appeal. A simple cake stack in brushed water colours reflected the palette too. Paired back bridal fashion came from Maids to Measure with a soft pink tie back dress, Rembo Styling slim silhouettes with geo lave patterns and fresh, new gem stone pieces from Eclectic Eccentricity with slick footwear from Florence. Undone chignon and tucked up pony tails for the hair and feminine soft pink dewy, iridescent make-up all part of the look for our girls.
