With subtle aspects of the classic Disney film which would completely stand out to any Disney nerd but at the same time wouldn’t scream out ‘oh my god what the hell is this’ to the others out there that aren’t as familiar with Disney. Essentially satisfying both parties in case your better half isn’t quite the Disney obsessed fan as yourself. It’s a win win! YAY! Beauty & the Beast Wedding decided!

So read on to hear how this Brisbane based team of wedding professionals created this STUNNING Beauty & the Beast wedding:

Step 1 – Identify and list the distinct Beauty and the Beast Wedding elements.
These are the main elements of the movie, which could be characters, themes, items, etc. Below is the list used to bring this vision to life.
· Roses
· Books
· Candelabra
· Clock
· Tea pot / Teacup
· Princess / Beast
· Wooden Finishes
· Mirror
· ‘Try the grey stuff it’s delicious’
· ‘Be our guest’
· Ball room / First Dance
· Fairy-tale/ Magical / Palace Garden
· Winter turning to Spring

Step 2 – Think of ways you can incorporate these elements into your settings.
Note: You don’t have to use every single item that you’ve listed. The more elements you try to include the more tricky it becomes for everything to work together from a styling perspective. So keep it simple. This team used a couple of the above listed items into different aspects of the day. For example, while tempting, roses weren’t included on the reception styled table.

The floral arrangements incorporated the Winter turning into Spring element. So dried cotton and grasses were included as a background for fresh flowers and greenery. A perfect example of how the subtle details can be implemented for a gorgeous finish.

Step 3 – Divide up the day into sections and decide what elements fit best into these categories.
This is how this Disney themed styled shoot was planned and how the various elements were incorporated.

Getting ready, Ceremony, Romantic Setting / Photo opportunity, Reception.
Getting ready: Gown, Navy Suit, Jewellery, Accessories
Ceremony: Winter turning to spring, Roses, Magical Palace Garden
Romantic Setting / Photo Opportunities: Candelabra, Books, Roses, Magical Romance, walking off into the sunset, and they lived happily ever after.
Reception: Candelabra, Books, Tea Set, Clock, Elegance, Wooden finishes, Ballroom, Try the grey stuff it’s delicious.

Step 4 – Figure out what to use to represent your elements.
Can spot the subtle Disney details in the beautiful photographs? Looking at the reception table, this is how ‘hidden elements’ or ‘hidden mickeys’ if you will, were included.

To the non-Disney fan, these will just look like a beautifully styled table. Which is perfect, with a couple of details that anyone can pick and then some more in depth elements for the Disney obsessed fans.

Reception table break down.
Candelabra = Lumiere
Miniature brass tea set = Mrs Pots, Chip and friends
Old style books = Library, Belle’s obsession with reading
Grey Plates = Try the grey stuff it’s delicious
Deep wine napkins = Red roses
Wooden menu and placings = Wooden elements
Lanterns, candles, lux champagne long runner, silver cutlery, white tablecloth = Other stylings to tie it all together for an elegant romantic setting

Step 5 – Tying it all together.
You want to create a story to which unfolds to your guests at each setting they get brought to throughout the day. Although they may not recognise each element the vibe and atmosphere of the day will do the rest.

A big must is beautiful instrumental music whilst your guests wait for you and your bridal party to arrive to the ceremony. Little things like this truly tie it all together in one big bow. Click the video below to see how we tied it all together.
