Combine the colours of navy blue, cream and blush pink with accents of regal gold to create a wedding palette that will stand the test of time. The perfect choice for a timeless wedding, this particular colour combination will inject a sense of grandeur to your day. This certain classic will ensure the images from your special day will look just as good ten, even twenty years from now.
Add touches of gold into key elements of your day for that certain Midas touch. Gold embossed wedding invitations, gorgeous gold stilettos peeking out from underneath your wedding gown. Metallic gold hair combs in your bridesmaids’ hair and maybe a beautiful vintage embellished clutch bag for added bling.
Navy and Vibrant Fuchsia Pink
Another definite contender on our favourites list is Navy and Pink. Navy works beautifully with deeper, more vibrant shades of pink. Fuchsia is a striking colour for a Spring Wedding. When combined with the deep shade of navy, this colour really pops.

Experiment with pattern to create eye-catching invites or wedding signs. These stunning wedding invitations cleverly combine the use of both colours. The inclusion of a floral motif stops the invites from looking too austere. The intricate cream cover adds a definite touch of femininity and romance.
I personally love this wedding sign. The addition of blue and cream stripes makes the board shout ‘Look at ME!’
Fuchsia pink can be incorporated into the finer details of your wedding day to help bring your whole look together. Fuchsia carnations in your wedding bouquet, a bright bowtie and boutannaire for the groomsmen, a pink satin ribbon on your wedding cake.
Dusty Blue and Coral Peach
With undertones of grey, dusty blue is a shade to flatter all skin tones and hair colourings. When added to coral peach, this colour combination screams girliness and romance. Add in texture to your wedding bouquet with sprigs of lavender, thistles and even pampas grass. Such a beautiful colour combination for any type of wedding; this palette would be simply perfect for a Spring coastal wedding.
I love the way this colour sits against the skin. The perfect compliment for the English Rose complexion, this stunning lace applique backless bridesmaid’s dress reminds me of the perfect heroine from a classic Jane Austen novel.

Dusty Blue and Green
Green is another colour that teams fabulously with dusty blue and grey. The Pantone colour of 2017; the popularity of this colour remains strong and is an element that is easily incorporated into your wedding colour palette. Add in elements of green to your day by using plenty of natural foliage in your wedding bouquets. Adorn the ends of your church pews and your aisle. Then decorate your wedding reception by using a combination of fresh greenery and cream pillar and taper candles as table centres and runners for your wedding reception.

Pantone colour of the year – Ultra Violet
Yes, Ultra Violet is the Pantone colour of the year, but still, it is a tricky one to get right. If the vibrant purple scares you just a little, dial the shade down a little instead. This beautiful dusky aubergine is a stunning shade. Simply add a nod to ultra violet where appropriate.

Again this shade looks fabulous when teamed with muted gold overtones. These regal gold charger plates will really dress your wedding tables and add a touch of glamour. Combine different shades of purple such as mauve, burgundy, lilac and ultra violet into your wedding bouquet and add in liberal amount of greenery to balance the look. Purple and violet taper candles can look dramatic against clean white table linen and is a refreshing change from the preferred church candles of late.

I love the combination of this ultra violet neck tie with the navy blue morning suit. The finer details of the purple pinstripe running through the groom’s waistcoat coordinates the look and ties the whole attire together beautifully.

For the colour lovers amongst you, ultra violet is of course, a perfect colour choice. Combine with bright fuchsia pink for a wedding colour statement centre piece for your wedding breakfast table.

Rich Plum, Lilac and Muted Grey

Shades of plum, lilac and soft grey combine to create a look that is both understated, elegant, yet with reminiscently vintage overtones.
Suitable for any season and not just Spring, these colours look wonderful against a wedding breakfast backdrop of shabby chic reception tables, luxury upholstered armchairs and grandiose crystal tableware. Add in some vintage rustic LOVE letters or a sparkly rustic light up love heart from our wedding letters range to complete the vintage look.
Sage Green and Copper Vintage Glamour
Sage Green immediately stirs thoughts of Spring and Summer foliage and the beautiful English countryside. When combined with rustic copper an understated vintage glamour is achieved. A fab colour palette for a variety of wedding venues from elegant country homes to rustic barn celebrations, this is a colour duo that remains constant despite fluctuating wedding trends. The two colours team extremely well with delicate cream which adds a distinct freshness to floral arrangements.
Beautiful copper elements can be applied throughout your day. Copper sprayed mason jars filled with fragrant Spring blooms, elegant vintage jewellery for the bride to be, to stunning copper inspired wedding decor, such as metallic tableware for your wedding breakfast and bespoke vintage wedding backdrops for your wedding ceremony.

Green and Peachy Coral
The colours of vibrant green and soft peachy coral and their earthy hues remind me of the popular fairytale, A Midsummers Night Dream and bring forth images of a woodland or outdoor romantic wedding ceremony.

I adore the way this wonderful shade of green contrasts with the softer shade of peach to make a true colour statement. From the pop of colour in the gent’s bow tie to the touch of colour in the foliage, the green just demands attention doesn’t it! Vintage ivory bridesmaid dresses teamed with accessories such as soft peach court shoes, pretty handtied bouquets in peach and green and fresh floral crowns are just perfect for an English Country garden marquee wedding.
Take your wedding reception outdoors if weather permits, and this colour scheme really works perfectly with your surroundings. String vintage Edison bulbs around your perimeter for the perfect illumination for your early afternoon into evening celebrations. Fabulous!
