Looking for fresh, seasonal ideas for your wedding day theme? Your inspiration starts right here

Gold accents add a sense of gothic romance

Purple reign

A rich and jewelled-inspired colour palette for a romantic and luxurious day

It’s easy to fall into a colour scheme of reds and whites when it comes to a winter wedding, but if you’re after a day draped in modern glamour, then elegant, expensive and romantic looking dark berry hues could be the ideal palette for you! Dark purples in particular will bounce beautifully off of lighter accent colours for a high couture look. A plum colour palette contrasted against a light and airy venue adds just the right amount of drama to your big day. Bring a touch of gothic romance to your ambience with dark linens, regal-looking cutlery and décor straight from a fairytale. Display your blooms in dainty vessels, but opt for flowers in bold colours to really make a statement – think amethyst and deep, rich reds. Florist Sarah Harper reveals: “We went for warm mauves, deep reds and purples as a starting point. The bouquet was made up of deep rich chocolate cosmos, and the runner was created with all things seasonal; lots of foliage, dahlias, blackberries, gourds, chocolate cosmos and succulents to create that banquet style table.” Continue the theme of royalty with small touches such as crowns dotted around the venue, calligraphy adorned stationery and flowers displayed in glass lids for that small hint of a fairytale.
