Clean lines, spare shapes, and geometric details, like those found in these timeless pearl earrings and this dress made of raw-edge organza—the same material that Tomasi Hill wore at her own wedding—make a convincing case for less-is-more devotees.
Strong silhouettes call for an uncomplicated floral palette that includes ranunculus, anemones, hellebores, and oregano.

The Inspiration: Barre Beauty
These ballerina-inspired offerings, such as this romantic Vivienne Westwood gown and, of course, dance-ready stilettos, are Degas-worthy ways to leap into married life. “I can boogie all night long in Paul’s shoes, which is so important for a bride,” says Tomasi Hill.
Tomasi Hill tied together sweet peas, geraniums, ranunculus, peonies, garden roses, gypsophila, and spray roses with rustic twine for a whimsical but slightly wild look.

The Inspiration: Gothic Romance
Here’s the grown-up way to go goth: Start with intricately patterned lace, add rich fabrics, and carry a tight posy that’s brimming with flowers in moody shades of pink and red. The choker lends “a thoroughly modern mix” of diamonds and green tourmaline, while “a burgundy heel exists at the intersection of Bella Swan and Jemima Kirke,” says Tomasi Hill. Dark never looked so dreamy.
For this dramatic arrangement, she combined closed buds of lily of the valley, lisianthus, dahlias, and thistle with open columbines, hellebores, and peonies, and finished it with a velvet ribbon.

The Inspiration: Grecian Grace
We can thank the neoclassical movement for drapey gowns and off-the-shoulder silhouettes that pair well with trailing vines and loosely tied buds. “The way this tulle drapes is absolutely heavenly,” Tomasi Hill says of this Jenny Packham dress. The other stunners, from the glass-beaded flats to the ultra-chic bag, are also fit for a goddess.
Tomasi Hill’s modern take on olive-leaf crowns: passion vine looped around ranunculus, oregano, leptospermum, anemones, and astrantia.
