Chinoiserie wedding inspiration with blue bridal gown in Charleston

Jan 14, 2022 | Inspiration

Wedding inspiration can come from literally anywhere and the possibilities are endless when you open your eyes to the creativity around you. The stellar team behind today's Charleston wedding shoot, including our Fine Art Curation members Marshall Arts Photography and Type A Society, were inspired by a collection of Chinoiserie vases. The iconic whimsical designs and lush garden scenery flow through every gorgeous detail of this wedding celebration in the grounds of South Carolina's Middleton Place. You can also find the pin-worthy Gucci shoes here!

The word Chinoiserie comes from the French word chinois, meaning 'Chinese' or 'after the Chinese taste'. Chinoiserie didn’t come directly from Asia, it's actually a European interpretation of East Asian design. As trade with Asia flourished in the 17th and 18th centuries, Chinoiserie style soared in popularity and it wasn’t long before the fanciful designs were gracing the palaces of King Louis XV and King George IV.

Chinoiserie is an art form inspired by the world. The blend of elegant European design with intriguing, exotic East Asian artistic traditions is so versatile and brings an elegant worldly feel to this incredible wedding shoot. From the exquisite stationery suite by Floraison Design Co and breathtaking floral design from Festoon to the gorgeous fashion, accessories and styling, there are so many special elements, it's difficult to choose our favourite! Scroll and take a look, this one is not to be missed!
