Sunshine & love

Colour is the easiest way to inject energy into a wedding and nothing portrays sincere happiness better than yellow.

Let the sun shine down on your big day with this exquisite, trendsetting wedding look. Whilst it can be a tricky colour to work with and some couples don’t feel comfortable taking a risk with it on their wedding day, there is no colour more uplifting, cheerful and fun – which are, after all, the ideal attributes for a happy occasion.

We’ve created different elements here to show how the colour could suit any style of wedding – rustic, vintage, glamorous or modern. We’ve made yellow more approachable by toning it down with soft whites and different shades of green.

Why not create “backdrops” to get the desired look and by using lemons you can make great décor statements. We love this lemon installation which would work well during the ceremony and then be moved to behind the bridal table or over the dance floor. And for the table décor, the use of coloured glassware and the quintessential patterned table cloths, napkins and plates.

Flowers are so important at weddings: they’re often the centre of attraction (on the tables, at least) and must be in line with the overall wedding look. Wearing floral accessories instead of jewellery is a huge trend and make for amazing photographs. It’s also another way to ensuring your wedding is unique and special.

Soft, feminine wedding gowns in either white or pale yellow, modern stationery so cleverly designed (the order of service comes in three parts and doubles up as a fan), umbrellas and of course, delicious wedding cakes.

To all our wonderful brides-to-be planning Spring and Summer weddings. Be bold - don’t hold back! If your yellow elements look a little bright, wait until you see them set up – you’ll be surprised how much colour gets absorbed by a venue. If you’re worried about too much colour at the reception, keep everything in shades of white and stone, and add a yellow tulip here or there for the pop of colour.
