Inspiration Board #1 Meet Juno...The Goddess Bride - Juno and Joy

Inspiration Board #1 Meet Juno…The Goddess Bride

junointro
Happy Tuesday! Today I thought I’d acquaint you with one of the women behind our name…Roman Goddess Juno, daughter of Saturn, wife (and sister) of Jupiter, mother of Mars and Vulcan but most importantly the protector of women and marriage.

When planning Juno & Joy I knew I wanted strong female icons at the heart of it and so Juno was the perfect choice. She is stoic, depicted almost as war-like in appearance yet warm and nurturing too. The month of June was also named after her and to this day sustains its strong connotations with weddings – so I knew we’d be in safe hands with Juno at our helm!

One of the regular features I’ll be creating are inspiration boards – different style ideas you can input into your wedding day and ways you can carry your personal tastes through your celebration. With that in mind I thought it might be nice to have a look at the style of wedding Juno might have were she one of our planning brides. Here’s my Juno board…

So here she is – our Juno…what do you think? I felt she’d carry a swag of florals and greenery rather than a delicate bouquet (go big or go home eh?) – her immense beauty speaks for itself so a simple olive branch crown is enough…and why the peacock feather mosaic? Goddess Juno is often painted with a peacock by her side…as it’s part of her identity, I felt she’s carry it through her wedding day style.
