Baroque, High Fashion Wedding Inspired by Still Life Paintings & Art Classes

Ben and Matt had a very specific vision for their November 2019 wedding; “We love Francisco de Zurbaran’s baroque still life paintings,” said Matt, “these inspired our table decorations. We were also inspired by fashion designer Molly Goddard who recreated an art class for her A/W 2015 presentation. We wanted the tables to feel a bit like an art installation and our guests to feel like they were part of the piece.”

The couple found planning incredibly intense, with a number of boardroom style meetings with themselves and suppliers to discuss food, decor and entertainment. They did all the decor themselves, with the help of friends and family. They spent months prior to the wedding collecting ornaments and antiques from charity shops and eBay, and paired them with fresh fruit and vegetables, taxidermy and flowers to set against black tablecloths, napkins and plates to recreate the baroque tablescapes.

We actually hate long weddings so we wanted ours to be short and sweet.”
