Blush and Black Ball

by | Bride, Inspiration Boards


I am not normally one to pair black and pink together, but I was particularly inspired by this photo from Petrina Tinslay. Instead of limiting this colour palette to fuchsia and black, I added in pinks of all shades to soften the bright colour and mix it up a little.

Adding the mishmash of pinks with the one neutral (in this case black) can give you a really beautiful look – instead of limiting yourself to one block colour you can throw in graduating shades – each piece will still come together, but it’s a lot more inviting!

Black is always incredibly dramatic- I envisage plenty of cocktails under chandeliers at this wedding! Choose black glassware and dramatic black ballgowns to soften the femininity of the pink.
