Coastal Calling: Wild Romance by the Beach
This pretty in pink unconventional elopement by the sea is blooming with possibility. The aim of this editorial was to inspire creative, non-traditional, and innovative couples that are drawn to the idea of having an elopement near the sea. Beacon House is a lovely historical home by the beach in Whitstable, Kent, England. Built at the turn of last century, The Beacon House stands above a natural promontory that stretches out to sea––with a twinkling view that changes with the tides. The house has a New England feel to it, with its wide wooden frontage, distinctive veranda, and wrap-around decking. The owners of the house still live in it, looking after it and curating all the beautiful details that tell the story of the property's past.
The delicate seashell name cards and coral intertwined with the florals are some of the many ocean elements that invoke joyous imagery. Full of energy, this is a celebration centered around a couple who chooses to fill their elopement day with meaningful luxuries, and plenty of time for adventure too! The palette is playful with a tonal wonderland of pink, framed by crisp black lines––colorful, while still being refined. Pink isn't often a color associated with the sea but it compliments all the whites, blues, and greens of the landscape in a refreshing way. Everything from the sugar wisps on the cake to the translucent vellum of the stationery tells the story of the contradictions of the sea: the immense power of waves crashing on a cliffside, bubbling over the quiet haven just below the surface. The design inspiration is marine and summery, but still fresh and new––a contemporary interpretation of beachy boho vibes. An intimate day like this can be all the more magical!
