Inspiration Boards: Claire and Tom’s Red and Purple Carnival Style Wedding (Part 1)

I am currently working with a couple from London called Claire and Tom, their wedding is at the end of May and they have planned THE most amazing day! The wedding is very relaxed with a carnival/festival theme. Music is very important to Claire and Tom, so along with some friends that are DJs, they are having a silent disco, and an old style jazz band playing. They also have lots of outdoor games booked, a photo booth, a cake table, an ice cream van…………..and a helta skelta!!

Their colour scheme is red and purple which will be reflected in the wedding parties outfits, along with the decoration with things like the flowers being very relaxed and loose, and lots and lots of lighting!……….I can’t wait!

To help Claire and Tom visualise it all a bit better I have put together 6 inspiration boards for them. 3 I will share with you today: Entertainment, Decoration and Details. The other 3 I will share with you tomorrow: Flowers, Food & Drink and Outfits.
