A beautiful beachside wedding at Gladstone’s Malibu with elegance at every turn.

Cory and Doug’s beachside wedding at Gladstone’s in Malibu was truly magical. It was a delightful fall day on the Southern Californian coast and the sky was clear with stunning views of the Pacific ocean.  

Wedding flowers we used 

Calla lilies are incredibly versatile flowers that epitomises beauty and simplicity. When used in a  wedding, they signify purity, innocence, love and devotion. White roses are commonly used at weddings as they indicate life-long love with trust and peace. Their beauty and fragrance made them the perfect addition to the bouquets. Ranunculus, also known as ‘elegance white’ are reminiscent of roses but are in fact a type of buttercup. Their layers of silky white petals symbolise charm and attractiveness. 

Together these flowers elevated and uplifted the already aesthetically beautiful space at Gladstone’s.  The flowers were a mix of locally grown and imported varieties sourced through my trusted wholesaler Mayesh. The vintage-style vases I used were sourced from Accent Decor.  

Not your average beach ceremony  

The intimate, beautiful beach ceremony was an escape from your average beach ceremony, I wanted the feel to be less boho and more in keeping with the flowers for the reception, and the couple’s vision for an elegant, simple wedding. I created a large scale ceremony piece from a variety of seasonal foliage with lots of texture, movement, and interest. 

The photographers were Purity Weddings, and If you’d like to read more, we were excited to be featured on the Style Me Pretty blog. You’ll find more photos and a link here.
