We recently styled a selection of wedding tablescapes to help our clients find their wedding reception style. Today we’re sharing the first of these in what will be a three-part series showcasing some of the ways in which we can style your wedding reception tables.
This first instalment is all about incorporating black into your wedding tablescape utilising stationery, cutlery, and other styling items. Incorporating black into your wedding styling can elevate the style, being both supremely elegant and classically grounding.
Of course, there are many ways to utilise black and there are so many different looks you can achieve with this basic tone. Let’s take a look at four distinctly different styles that all feature touches of black, showing just how versatile black can be when it comes to wedding tablescape styling.

Our first tablescape is a contemporary luxe style, which brings elegant coastal vibes. We’ve married (pun intended) the relaxed vibes of a beachside wedding with high end luxury by pairing our rattan dining chairs and oaklab vases with black candle holders and our black and gold cutlery.
The style is completed with contemporary blooms, fresh white tapered candles and our oatmeal linen tablecloth and napkins.
For a timeless wedding style, you can’t beat black and white monochrome. It’s got all the makings of a modern wedding while maintaining a classic feel.
We’ve brought quite a lot of black into this tablescape, using our black-rimmed charger plates, black-edged candle holders, black cutlery and smoke glassware. The contemporary stationery design by Bluebird Invitations also adds a lot of style to the setting in its own right.
A mix of black and white tapered candles adds a quirky element, while the romantic white blooms with greenery are stunning against the crisp white table linen.
Pop of Colour
Creating an entirely different look is achievable by simply adding a pop of colour. We went with a rich, gorgeous mustard to lift the table setting, and really give the whole style personality.
A cool colour combo like this calls for flowers that catch the eye, like this vase arrangement by Willow Bud.
Who said black had to be bold? We wanted to create a look that showed the way incorporating black into your wedding styling doesn’t mean having to do away with all of your feminine elements.
Super pretty meets luxe elegant styling for this wedding tablescape. We used nude pink linen napkins and candles with abundant blooms in a romantic style alongside the modern black cutlery. Glassware that shines like the top of the Chrysler Building also serves to elevate the look.
