If you can’t choose a single colour theme for your Wedding Day – don’t worry, why not mix and match colours and have a ‘brights’ theme. This is am amazing way to have a truly personal look and feel to your special day … and to have some amazing fun with it.
Here some suppliers from Berkshire Wedding Supplier got together to create their own photoshoot and share with you their tips on how to create this look.
“Wedding photography is the one supplier that tells the true story of your day; we explore the visual story for the other suppliers in your wedding photographs. It is so important to choose a wedding photographer that fits with your style and that is why I am so pleased that we agreed to do the vibrant, bright colourful shoot as it is quintessentially the look of my images – bold, vibrant, fun and that fabulous piercing colour. It was a joy to capture the detail of the venue, stationery, flowers, cake, balloons, models dresses, hair and make up to bring the whole look together.”
“I wanted to evoke a romantic hair feel with the looks I created on the shoot. Many brides go for the same few hairstyles so I wanted to show my diversity as a hairstylist and show alternative soft, feminine looks which would enhance tiaras, pins and hair accessories as well as being intricate and pretty.”
“With this three tiered cake it was all about the “popping, vibrant” colours around the tiers and the flowers as topper. I used the same flowers as the Florist to make sure it tied in with the main table.
The white cake, with a very simple hand piped cornelli design formed the perfect clean canvas for the vibrant colours! This show just how powerful your colour choice can be for your special day and also, do not be afraid to go for bold, loud colours. It can be stunning as shown through this shoot.”
“Due to the vibrancy of the beautiful dresses and flowers I felt a more natural approach to the make up would be fitting. Anything too bright or bold could have clashed. As it was a warm day I applied a matte finish foundation to avoid an oily look and kept the ladies topped up with loose powder throughout the shoot. I still wanted to create a summer glow so applied both bronzer and some shimmer to cheeks and collar bones. False lashes were applied to really create some drama around the eyes were a strong shadow colour was missing. For lips I opted for gloss, although later into the shoot applied a much more vibrant colour to one of the models who was less fair than the others. This created a more dramatic look when teamed with a wedding dress and complimented the colours of the shoot perfectly.”
“With weddings there are no rules so be bold and explore creative ideas that best describe you. As with the balloons in the shoot they give a strong statement of summer fun with bright bold colours and very large white balloons to add character to the room.”
Tea and Doilies
“Follow your theme through into the small details such as your wedding stationery and favours. this way everything flows together. To achieve the table decorations we used florists ribbon and weived into a pattern to create not only a table runner but place settings.”
“I used a mixture of seasonal flowers and plants within the table design to create a real contrast in colour and texture in the plant materials being used. I wanted the table design had a real wow factor also lots of interest for the guest to look/talk about at during the meal.(Quite a good ice breaker!!)
Flowers included coral calla lilies, Miss piggy, avalanche sorbet and a spray roses, red hot pokers, pink bouvardia, phlox called bright eyes, poppy heads, alliums, Echinacea seed heads, Anastasia chrysanthemum spray chrysanthemums,celosia, euringiums, and black mountain grass. The plants used were different types of succulents. This created a real mixture of flowers which worked really well within the cube containers.
Using the canes and sticks to create a lid to the design meant people could see through the centre of the arrangement and also gave the design real height in a funky kind of way, the coloured skeleton leaves were used to draw the colours to the the top of the design to create a movement and rhythm throw the table design.”
Borrowed Blue and Lace Dresses
“For this look be bold with your bridesmaids colours and when creating this look ask each bridesmaid to try on each of the colours as it is amazing how one colour will light up one bridesmaids eyes, skin tones and hair whilst another colour will not be as impactful. Taking the time to make your bridesmaids feel special in the style and colour of their dresses will reward you in happy smiling faces on your wedding day.”
