The seashore trend is set to be big for weddings this summer. Natural materials, metallic finishes and a celebration of the outdoors all come together in a trend that’s shore to delight!
Whether you dream of a full mermaid wedding, or would just like to add some elegant natural touches to your special day, there are so many ways to include this trend.
We figured that brides who are drawn to this soulful trend will enjoy knowing their wedding details have been purchased from designer makers working in small studios with big passion.
With this in mind we’ve rounded up 5 of our favourite seashore trend products from some of our favourite artisans.
1.) Chocolate Oysters and champagne truffle pearls from choc on choc, £16 for 2 shells with 6 pearls from Not On The High street
Based in Bath, Somerset, Choc On Choc is a father and daughter team who create beautiful handmade chocolates that taste as good as they look.
We love this truly luxurious box of chocolate oyster shells with truffle pearls and think they would make stunning wedding favours or a delicious wedding gift for the special couple. They could even be used to decorate a beach themed cake!
2.) Kiko copper frames from Nkuku, from $14.99 https://www.nkuku.com/product/kiko-copper-frame
Dartmouth homewares store Nkuku commissions beautiful pieces from designer makers around the world. These glass and copper frames with recycled sari ties have been made for the store by Yusut, an artisanal framer from Uttar Pradesh.
Whether used for framing table numbers or to display pictures of the happy couple through the years, these frames will bring some rustic elegance to your big day without compromising on ethics.
3.) Wide crown ring by Mirri Damer, from £940
We always enjoy seeing pieces from the Devon Guild of craftsmen, and this ring by Mirri Damer with it’s unique texture really caught our eye.
Her “drift” collection features pieces inspired by the Cornish coast, including this ring which seeks to capture the play of light on the sand at low tide. We love the way the tiny diamonds mimic sparkles on the water.
4.) Sea shore confetti from Rosie plus the boys, £3.15 for a pack of 50
Based in rural Bedforshire, designer and Mum Rosie makes intricate paper cuts and eco friendly confetti.
This charming confetti mix with starfish and coral shapes is gorgeous and guilt free, being fully biodegradable and created from the off-cuts of her paper cuts! Not just for showering the bride and groom, scatter this confetti across tables for a fuss free beachy feel.
5.) Mussel shell calligraphy placeholders by GreyberryDesign, from £1.45 each
We spotted these whimsical shells on Pinterest, and thought they would be perfect for a beach wedding. Hand painted in black, gold or white by shop owner Haley, these shore line treasures are a great way to incorporate natural materials and handcrafted elements into your table decor without breaking the bank.
