Leading UK event specialist Bloomsbury wedding videography has captured numerous nuptials and other important celebrations on film. Any major occasion can be lifted to unforgettable success or thrown into dubious disappointment by the colour theme they advise – colour can make a venue seem dull or opulent, tasteless or elegant.

The following guide offers need-to-know tips aimed at helping couples easily choose the most suitable and flattering colour themes for optimal visual impact on their special day.

Colour Limitations

The simplest way forward, suggests Bloomsbury, is to first rule out colours that are a definite no. Personal taste will immediately add a few hues to the list, and there are a few additional key limitations which will affect the choice of colour theme:

  •     If the ceremony and reception venues have existing strong colours, this will need to be taken into account so that the chosen colour theme won’t clash.
  •     Certain colours do not suit particular skin tones – a makeup artist can help with identifying what colours are most flattering to an individual.

Think Seasonal

Each season brings its predominant colour palette – unless certain hues offend an individual’s taste preference, Bloomsbury advises that couples cannot go wrong by simply following seasonal tones:

  •     Spring – pastel shades such as lavender and baby blue.
  •     Summer – bright shades of every hue.
  •     Autumn – harvest tones such as browns, oranges, reds, and yellows.
  •     Winter – burgundies, deep purples, grey-greens and silvers.

Let the Heart Choose

Another easy way to settle on a colour theme would be to simply choose the colour that both the bride and groom-to-be like the most, and work from there. Bloomsbury suggests it can be very visually appealing if a couple opts for a monochromatic theme, meaning the décor and bridal outfits are all selected as different shades of one primary colour. Alternatively, a couple could accentuate their favourite colour by complimenting it with neutral tones. For example, blue matched with stark white, cream, grey or black, such as a white bridal gown with a blue sash, or a black tuxedo with a blue cummerbund and tie.

Director of Bloomsbury wedding videography, Andrew Cussens, commented: “From painters and décor professionals to videography and photography experts, we all agree that colour plays a highly important role in creating visual and spacial unity within a setting, not to mention atmosphere. We hope that the key tips we’ve provided help couples find the colour theme that will make their wedding day shine out in the best light.”
