Not only is it a signature Christmas colour, but with the multitude of shades- from warms to cools, the beautiful freshness of the colour is always beautiful at weddings! Using lots of different shades together can create such a fun and stylish look. Tree photo from

I adore sea foam green and love seeing it used in weddings. It’s such a soft beautiful colour and doesn’t always need to be used in beach-side celebrations. Today’s board is a bit more classic, a ballroom wedding with a touch of whimsy with touch of something a little different and as lot of the

The couple want their country wedding to incorporate a vintage style with touches like shabby chic furniture, sweet decorations and fairy lights plus perhaps centered around the beautiful shade of vintage green.

I was inspired for this board by the spools of thread from Cozy Home Making – so many deeply, hued colours – they reminded me of a beautiful Autumn day. The rich palette continues with touches of gold, rich plums, oranges and greens and even marigold. Plenty of sweet treats like caramel apples, and fairy

The beauty of France and the sweet smell of lavender inspired today’s board. Classically elegant with a few back to nature touches like a beautifully set table under a warm Spring sky. A little truck full of fresh baguettes to be served with delicious cheese and fresh preserves is a fun touch and a nice

I love the colour combination of yellow and grey for weddings – but being particularly inspired by the bouquet in the top left, I added in some fuchsia for this fun yet formal wedding. I envisage a beautiful ballroom with elegant, modern curtains and chairs. Simply beautiful stationery, a modern cake touched in shades of

I couldn’t end off the week without another tip to the festivities that are set to take place in just a few hours! Our final nod this week to the royal nuptials! A fantasy if you will, of the wedding which comes to mind when one thinks “Prince William and Catherine”. I must say, while

The joy and fun of rainbows has been on my mind lately (inspired by the recent influx of parties and celebrations). I love the idea of bringing that quirky fun into a wedding. By keeping the basic colour palette white and gold and adding rainbow accents (bridesmaids in beautifully toned gowns, a few rainbow garlands,

I adore the colour combination of peaches, creams and soft golds. There’s something so elegant about the soft gold with cream- it’s classic. Adding in the peach brings an old world charm and a freshness while the gold sequins? Well they’re a modern twist, a touch of fun and shot of celebration! Photo by Shannon
