Beautiful alternative colour palette ideas for a chic, modern summer wedding
I like to think the role of wedding blogs is to mix things up a little. While there are always key themes for any wedding season, it’s nice to throw something wonderfully, excitingly different into the mix from time to time. So when lovely Helen from Pudding Bridge showed me this glorious shoot with dusky blues and peach blooms I simply had to share it with you! Images are by James Green Photographer – a full supplier list is at the end of the feature.
Helen – who you might well know as country house wedding planner Pudding Bridge – worked in partnership with the wonderfully talented Caroline Bowater of Foxy Buds, a florist based in Bradford on Avon.
“We wanted to show couples how you can use a darker, non traditional colour scheme for a summer wedding. We used a dusky blue as the base and mixed in stunning whites and peach blooms to really make the blue stand out.
With the greenery (a nod to this year’s Pantone) and a little dash of copper the scheme is suddenly more contemporary and youthful. I love the combination of the darker tones with the fresh flowers!
Caroline created the most exquisite floral pillars to bring an English garden inside. I hope you agree that the effect is stunning.”
