Autumn’s wedding trends

2 October 2017   |   Pamela Pizzardo

A contrasting concept of modernity and tradition combined with Bohemian romance. 

A wedding inspired by Bohemian spirit sounds very tempting especially in romantic autumn. A mixture of morning mist and golden fall sunshine create a cozy atmosphere. Stylish romance has many faces! Noble lace and a palette of bold and rich colours of berry all contrasting with the dark wood and bright rocks of the Dolomites – not only a meaningful concept, but also breathtaking and contrasting. The photographic memories brought to you and best expressed by the detail loving photographer Caroline Renzler of Weddings by Silbersalz.
The stylishly furnished suites of the traditional hotel 'Alte Goste' in Valdaora (Val Pusteria) offer the perfect combination of tradition and modernity, an ideal setting for the wedding preparations of bride and groom. A rustic country house with natural wooden elements combined with elegant details of lace conjure a high-quality and stylish atmosphere in the unique natural landscape of South Tyrol.

The styling

The loving couple is able to express insight into their individuality and independence and personalise the ceremony to reflect this.

Acherer’s expressive flower ring – arranged in her loose flowing slightly curled hair – and the strongly emphasized berry coloured lips together with the colorful tattoos of the bride make this self-confident wedding concept particularly interesting. Experienced beautician Stefanie Steiner from Schönheitssalon Stefanie Steiner creates the bridal look. Strongly emphasized lips accentuated with dark red tones convey warmth, strong emotions and self-confidence. Red symbolises love, passion and seduction and the subtle touch of purple stands for romance as well as sensuality and gives the bride a mysterious and mystical charisma.

The sensual dress in a two-piece look with a flared tunic skirt from Perfect Plans punctuates the self-confident character of the bride – extremely feminine with V-neck front and back. The combination of fabric and sparkling jewellery lending a romantic touch.
The ‘Getting Ready’ with its sensual bridal inspiration demonstrates that anticipation is the most beautiful of all pleasures. It is the transformation of woman into bride and man into groom: a very intimate moment, marked by strong emotions. The expectant moment to finally look at the wedding dress in the mirror and to be styled by the stylists –unforgettable feelings, captured by the accomplished photographer.

Romantic settings and a light-flooded, stylishly furnished room form the best conditions for a stress-free wedding morning. A handwritten love letter ensures true emotions and sweetens the waiting for the special moment, conjuring a dazzling smile on the bride or unexpected tears of joy for the bridegroom – who remaining true to the Bohemian style forgoes the classic wedding suit, preferring a casual and unconventional combination that reflect a laid-back character.

Added to the already Bohemian atmosphere, the eye-catching, colour-intensive and wildly bound bouquet as well as the other flower creations from Acherer bring together all elements in a holistic way.

The ceremony and celebration

At the nature-bound wedding out of doors with its overwhelming view of the unmistakable UNESCO world cultural heritage of South Tyrol, Tre Cime di Lavaredo (Italian for ‘three peaks of Lavaredo’, also called ‘Drei Zinnen’ in German: ‘three merlons’), many small details are dominated by the Bohemian style. Softly lighted by the golden evening sun, crocheted dream catchers dance in the wind. Each detail is an essentially beautiful part of the ceremony, from the grapes hanging on the vines to the bright red flowers punctuating the forest surroundings. Our celebrant Evelyn Messner from Perfect Plans will hold an unforgettable wedding rite filled with love.

The powerful red elements contrast magically with the bright rocks of the Dolomites offering themselves as a majestic backdrop for unforgettable photographs. The couple is artistically staged in front of the Lago di Landro (German: ‘Dürrensee’) where the scenery is breathtaking. The silence of nature together with the setting sun invoke romantic ambience for impressive and memorable after wedding photos. 
The special day culminates in festivities back at the hotel ‘Alte Goste’ where a rustic barn awaits the wedding guests and the happy couple. Autumn evenings can be a little cooler and the rustic barn is a cozy alternative to an outdoor event. The elegant chandeliers and the white tablecloths give the rustic ambience a subtle elegance. In keeping with the Bohemian style, we combine elements like lace with vividly luminous flower arrangements, which round off the elegant style and invite everyone to soak in, sit back and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.

The individual and yet simple stationery by Wedding by Silbersalz, which consists of high-quality cotton paper, has been coordinated completely to the concept of Bohemian style, ensuring a harmonius overall wedding concept – from the cards ‘Save the Date’ and wedding invitations up to the menue and table cards, everything suits the Bohemian dream wedding.

A perfect contrast to the dark and antique wood of the barn is especially the sweet temptation: The berry fruit cake from Acherer, which glows in rich colours of berry, is the crowning glory of an already exquisite environment.
