Something blue: A dreamy, dusty blue inspiration shoot

Light and airy, whimsical and elegant, this subtle 'something blue' shoot is wedding inspiration for the real romantics

There's something so calming about a beautiful blue palette.

And while this year Pantone might be all about 'ultra violet', we suspect those with a penchant for all things romantic will be sticking to the pastel palette as inspiration for their big day decor...

Today's shoot, styled by Cynthia Martyn of Cynthia Martyn Events, is a great lesson in the subtle and simple when it comes to making an impact.

Think rustic family dinners in the spring set on long banqueting tables, instantly given a whimsical and dreamy edge with a neutral, inexpensive cheese cloth runner tied at each end with pretty ribbon...

Taper candles sit in antique-look gold holders creating depth at the table, while gorgeous greenery bouquet centrepieces bring the outside in.

This light and airy rustic theme is made glamorous with lavish gold letterpress menus, overall however it's an achievable look for those on a budget.
