Today it’s all about my latest colour palette crush, the beautiful soft and elegant mix of blue and greys, with dashes of silver and endlessfly fresh and simple white. Here’s our interpretation of this colour palette via these boards we’ve created and how you might use it for your own wedding design.
What I love
I’m a big fan of table styling and attention to the little details – the top image is full of lots of beauty but what I’m drawn to is the geometric grey table runner which is a nod to a very contemporary trend, without taking over. This looks great teamed with effortless loose linen and a very relaxed napkin fold trailing down the table side, stunning and chic! I do love working with florals on a long table and the interesting collection of different blooms in different receptacles, coupled with the white colour palette gives the table a uniformity and plenty of style. Highly recommended!
I adore the bridesmaids dresses here – clearly floaty and romantic fabrics with a very timeless long dress length but the trend of asymmetric not forgotten. I couldn’t resist a big dose of France (my favourite country besides my own) and a loosely styled cake of cheese – you can’t go wrong with focusing on excellent food and drink at your wedding.
And a little bit of a cheeky ruffle design with the cake – this one, designed by the wonderful Cakes by Krishanthi, whose cakes I know taste every bit as yummy as they look!
The second board shows how lovely grey is for the groom’s suit – a natural match with pale blue accessories and much less harsh than black . I thought I’d factor in some blue florals here – not the easiest colour of flowers to source naturally of course, but I love these hydrangea which work beautifully and we use a lot in our elegant summer weddings. And let’s not forget the setting. Whatever colour palette you opt for, my advice is to go with the setting and backdrop you’re in, particularly if it has lots of character already – best to use any architectural or décor features in an older building in your colour scheme and design than to fight against them.
