This one’s for the water babies! We love a little bit of magic here at Unconventional Wedding. When we were sent this mermaid wedding by Captured by Chrissi, we just had to share it! The seaside elopement vibes, the sparkly pastel decor and the festival face glitter… we are in LOVE! Take me to the ocean! Read on for some killer mermaid beach vibes…
How To Rock A Mermaid Wedding
Perfect Pastels - Mermaid Wedding Styling
We are loving this mermaid wedding colour scheme. Pastel pinks and purples with rich teals really pop against the seaside backdrop. Use seashells and the beach’s natural features to your advantage, and mix them with ‘human’ items like funky candleholders and earthy wicker baskets. Bring the magic with a sparkly tablecloth and quirky stationery and sweets.
"Kiss the Girl!" - A beachy Romance
Surely no beach day is complete without a dip in the sea! This couple is rocking the mermaid wedding look, complete with festival style face art and a glitter beard! Mer-people don’t do things by halves. We’re big advocates of expressing your personality and just going for it… how many other days will you be able to get dressed up like this?
Surely no beach day is complete without a dip in the sea! If you loved this sparkly shoot, be sure to join us in the our Facebook chat room for more inspiration, market nights and advice!
