Blue themed wedding with chinoiserie touches may be the definition of perfection and it takes one look to see precisely why we are swooning over the results of this amazing styled shoot at the Fenway Hotel. When Blue Skies Events from Tampa, Florida got in touch with us to be part of a blue themed wedding with chinoiserie touches we couldn't be happier to join the amazing team that made this beautiful wedding come together. Beautifully, captured by the talented Tampa, FL photographers Lifelong Photography Studio. Not a detail was missed making every detail of this wedding shoot beyond stunning.
You may be asking what is Chinoiserie? So first, let’s dive into this décor styling that incorporates the decorative or fine art based on Asian motifs. Essentially, the imitation of Chinese patterns and techniques in western décor elements. It is bold, yet sophisticated and very on-trend for weddings at the moment. Blue and white Chinese porcelain is always in style, but lately it is taking center stage.
For me, being Czech, you grew up surrounded by the Czech Onion pattern. ON. EVERYTHING! Mostly porcelain, but it was also found items such as tea towels, linens, curtains, table cloths...anything to do with table ware. You couldn't escape it. Any house in Czech Rep. would have it on display. It always captured my imagination and I always loved the pattern and the color. The striking blue pattern is so beautiful.
While the design most likely originated from an east Asian model, probably Chinese, it also demonstrates that the manner of strictly abstract stylization has a European influence.
This pattern initially inspired the suite that was designed for this shoot - which we've named Sadie. Although it is a softer blue, the placement and patterns had me channel Chinoiserie mixed in with a little bit of Wedgewood Blue as well. A blue tone that I believe is perfect for weddings. Best thing about this suite - all the blue elements can be changed and customized to match your wedding color theme. Don't hesitate to ask us!
So here's the perfect formula: Pattern, color and texture is the holy trinity of wedding details in our book, so it’s no surprise we’re captivated by chinoiserie wedding decor every single time. There’s just something about French and Asian motifs across surfaces that gets our hearts going, and there are so. many. possibilities. The masters will prove it to you below! From statement urns to signage to the wedding dress itself, you’ll find a whole lot to love about the blue and white wedding decor below!
