dark tropical wedding styling at sneaton castle

This awesome team of wedding suppliers transformed Whitby wedding venue Sneaton Castle into a dark tropical wedding wonderland.

We love how this shoot embraced a dark colour palette and used nature to set the vibe. Bright coral and gold were then used to add a little brightness. Peony And Gold provided the floral centerpieces and aisle decorations, creating showstopping tropical masterpieces. 

The neon signs from Smithys Events really added the WOW factor! Their geometric stand and neon pink lights created a beautiful, modern backdrop to the aisle. The funky lighting made for some epic wedding photos by Paylor Photography, too!

Elegant AND fun wedding details

Tiggity Boo Design created this gorgeous tropical-themed invitation suite, along with menu cards and super inventive place names. These looked gorgeous against the table settings created by Kate from Sashes & Covers. The black linens totally transformed Sneaton Castle. 

Tying together the dark tropical wedding theme is this awesome wedding cake from Rosehill Cake Studio. Check out the gold pineapple cake topper! Both elegant AND fun!

Alternative wedding wear inspiration

How incredible do this couple look? The groom is rocking a bottle green velvet suit and floral tie from Dandy Threads. This badass bride is gorgeous in her black and white flare sleeved wedding dress from Bexbrides, with EPIC knee high lace boots from House of Elliot. Wedding Hair by Kirsty and Heavenly Beauty worked their magic on hair and makeup, making this pair look unstoppable! Both are wearing accessories by Garter And Veil, including a bespoke gold lapel piece!
