Styleboard: Contemporary

Words by Tamarin Morley
November 17, 2015

Airy, light-flooded spaces, clean lines and pops of organic greenery, we’re really feeling the contemporary-fresh vibe at the moment.

Whether minimal or extravagant, a contemporary wedding should show off design elements that are unique, unexpected and edgy. A restrained palette with gilded touches is key, creating interest in mixing textures such as metal, marble and concrete.

Perfect contemporary venues include sleek, sophisticated spaces such as galleries or modern restaurants, as well as warehouse spaces with an industrial feel (see some of our favourites here).
