Black and White Wedding Inspiration

A black and white wedding theme can evoke mystery, sensuality, and sophistication all at once. Black is serious – seriously cool, baby – and white is ultimate purity. Put them together and you get an explosive color combo on your hands.

A splash of soft color here and there can keep everything from appearing too somber, and don’t forget that black and white go well with mostly everything. Why not incorporate touches of lavender, pink, sea green, or saffron to balance out the stiffness?

But if you want to go all-out with the formal feel, you can add some décor in silver or gray, red, or gold. For a fresh, happy change, you can also opt for bright and cheery flowers.

South Bank Wedding {Samantha + Adam}

This Brisbane wedding is all class and sophistication.

We love the breathtaking St Stephens Cathedral where the couple wed, the elegant Paloma Blanca wedding dress worn by the bride, the stunning River Room reception views, and the chic wedding photography by David Ferguson Photography.

David explained, “Samantha and Adam live in England so planning their wedding in Brisbane was always going to require lots of help. I think Sam and her mum Analisa did an amazing job.

On her wedding day where else would Sam get ready than, surrounded by her sisters and her parents in [their] extremely warm and inviting family home. Everyone calmly went about their preparations and it was soon time to head to the church.”

David recalls, “I had never photographed in St Stephens Cathedral in Brisbane and I was looking forward to it. It is a beautiful building with lovely clean lines and is reasonably well lit for a building of its age.

After the ceremony we were so close to lots of great spots so we went for a walk around Eagle St pier. [Then] after a few night shots under the bougainvillaea’s it was onto the reception and after an impromptu dace practice the reception began at the River Room over looking Brisbane’s beautiful skyline.”
