Well HELLO there! It’s been a while, if you haven’t seen my Instagram or Facebook you may not know I became a mummy to a gorgeous girl, Della Joanie, about 6 months ago now. I will be writing a post up about running my business with a babe and some of the huge changes that have taken shape behind the scenes but I thought it was about time to share some wedding inspiration with you, because that’s really what you’re here for, right? And this ones all about geometric shapes and clean lines, this look is not going away and is set to be pretty big for next year too.
So today we have a guest blog post from my new super super stylish assistant Laura of Rose and Weston fashion blog. We met when she helped me with the Most Curious Wedding fair in the Spring and was basically the biggest help ever. She just got what I was looking for and we clicked. You might even meet Laura on some styling set ups with me from time to time too.

‘So when Penny exhibited some new amazing pieces at The Most Curious Wedding Fair a few months back, I knew she was on to yet another great styling idea that you brides-and-grooms-to-be need to see more of – Geometrics!
The emerging trend of bringing an ultra modern touch to your big days in the form of sharp lines and shapes is something I’ve spotted more and more of over on Pinterest too. From wedding stationary to lanterns, but most notably in the form of amazing ceremony structures and backdrops, the clean, minimalist lines styled alongside masses of fresh greenery gives a strikingly modern vibe yet at the same time still feels completely timeless and elegant.
Maybe you’re not wanting geometrics as a full theme across the wedding can pick and the beauty is choosing features to make it work for you… but just imagine brass faceted terrariums flickering with candles paired beautifully with the aged wood of the hexagonal backdrop, picked up again in elements including table numbers or place card settings, what’s not to love?
So if you’re wanting to explore the geometric trend have a look below for a few ways you can create this vibe…
CEREMONY OR TOP TABLE BACK DROPS: These paired back wooden shapes contrast beautifully with fresh florals and heavy greenery making the perfect eye catching focal point for your vows.

BRASS TERRARIUMS: Faceted lanterns look perfect holding anything from florals, to succulents to candles, and can be placed as centre pieces on table tops, along the aisle or to decorate doorways and alcoves.
Available to hire in bulk from us. Enquire here.

STATIONERY AND SIGNAGE: An easy way to bring the whole day together is with uniform colours and geometric shapes across name cards, table plans and numbers and invitations. Add linear shapes and elements to signage and banners for added wows.
