Knot and Pop wedding stylists featured sprigs of olive branches nestled into napkins, and a painted star acts as a favour – pink for boys, and blue for girls. The colour palette is finished with the shine of silver cutlery.

4. Bold Metallic Make-up by Love Moi Makeup
“Metallic elements look beautiful to reflect light and add shimmering tones for a glamorous bridal look. Choose gold or pewter on the eyes for warmer skin tones, and silver, champagnes or rose gold to highlight fair skin and eyes and add glow and texture for a modern and defined makeup,” says Emily of Love Moi Makeup.

7. Trifari ‘Leaf and Bud’ Earrings by Gemma Redmond Vintage, £70
These brushed silver tone clip-on earrings feature a stylised 'leaf' design, metal 'stems' and faux pearl 'buds'. Hippie floral and natural motifs were a major influence on jewellery styling in the 1960s. These earrings would have served their wearer with a classical way of buying into the 'Flower Power' trend. Also, their silver tone would allow for unostentatious daytime wear. Their faux pearls also make them a classic bridal gown accessory.
8. Metallic Wedding Cake, Serves 210, from £750
Inspired by Art Deco fringes, this cake combines pretty delicate flowers with the clean modern metallic trend with the use of silver leaf. The cool lilac background would also work in a pale pink or pale peach colour.
Popular flavour choices for five tiers include: pink coconut with lime buttercream, red velvet cake with vanilla buttercream, Oreo cookie with vanilla buttercream, orange cake with chocolate ganache and champagne cake with strawberry buttercream. Yum!
9. Filigree Art Deco Style Wedding Comb, Marquis by Jules Bridal Jewellery, £137
Wear this Art Deco style wedding hair comb with an elegant up do or French-style chignon. Inspired by all things Deco, the Marquis bridal hair comb is embellished with glittering jewelled and pearl accents, but its handmade fan shape adornments give a light and delicately detailed feel to the piece. It would be simply stunning for a wedding.
