Colour Schemes You Shouldn’t Be Scared Of

On the blog this week we thought we’d create some mood boards for some of the less used colour schemes that people seem to shy away from. These colours look fantastic together, but are often avoided because they can look horrible if styled badly. With the right styling help, variety in base colours and the right coordinating colours, these schemes can make unforgettable wedding photos!

Red and Green

With this colour scheme it’s important to choose bright whites and peaches and accent with gold to make sure your wedding doesn’t become too dark! A deep or bright red works perfectly with a bright light green to create a rustic wintery look. Red and Green

Purple and Black

This colour scheme can seem scary or uninviting on paper, but in reality it looks amazing! Paired with light greens, whites, and a dash of pink and gold, this colour scheme is both romantic and a little bit whimsical.Purple and Black

Pink and Brown

This colour scheme is so soft and inviting it’s hard to see why it’s not used more often! Light pinks and rich natural browns, paired with whites and a touch of gold create a gorgeous country wedding vibe. Pink and brown

Blue and Orange

As complimentary colours, it’s strange that blue and orange are avoided. With a variety of peach, bright and tangerine oranges paired with deep navy and electric blues, this style offers an almost art-deco feel. Without the contrasting whites and smooth golds this style can look a bit uncoordinated, but with the right styling help, it can look fantastic! Blue and Orange
