Julia & Michael’s Old Fashioned Romantic Glam Wedding by Keepsake Photography

I love how today’s wedding has the right mix of old fashioned glam + romance + sparkle. Imagine old Hollywood vibe mixed with romantic, vibrant berry tones + gold sparkly details. The outcome was mesmerizingly beautiful! The bride Julia shares, “I wanted an old fashioned gold glamour with romantic touches, with main colours of gold, and accents of creams, soft pinks and maroons. I once saw a wedding photo shoot set in a forest, with strong bold berry colours but accented with metallics. I was inspired by the bold colours and how beautiful they were alongside the metallics and so we developed the mix of creams, pinks and maroons to contrast leafy greens in the flowers, with a strong a gold base. I fell in love the champagne gold sequin fabrics and sought out the elegant bridesmaids gowns to bring the dream to life! I was also able to source matching gold sequin fabric overseas, and created all the table coverings to match.”

Everything was made even more special because Julia DIY-ed almost everything… from the tablecloths, mirrored seating chart, table numbers, centerpieces, most stationery and bonbonniere amongst other things. Talk about a hands-on bride!

Julia had so much to share about their special day, here’s what she has to say to future brides:

On how to enjoy the engagement: “Really remind yourself that the wedding is a celebration of your love and commitment to each other, forever. We took on board a lot of family support and ideas, which can be stressful. For us we wanted to make sure our families were happy, and took that stress on willingly, as our families have done so much for us. At the end though, we just had to remember that the day would mean we’d be married, and all the stresses sort of become insignificant! And have a party, why not!”

On wedding planning: “I adored wedding planning, at every stage. I would recommend that brides use so many of the resources online and in bridal magazines that helped me along. Our relatively short engagement period meant we had to be decisive in decision-making and I loved what we came up with. I felt that the day was a perfect representation of what we both wanted, which is so important, and in the end the day will be what it is! Money can be stressful too, but just make sure to use DIY options available!”

On the wedding day: “BREATHE! I nearly forgot to do this so many times. But you’ll have surrounded yourselves with vendors and people you trust. So take a back seat to the operational aspect of the day, and focus on the actual event- marrying your fiancé!”
