Yes, I know it’s almost 2019. Yes, I realise that Pantone came up with the new colour for that year. Yes I know Ultra Violet is an old news. But since I don’t really care about what Pantone says and I like doing things my way, today we are having an Ultra Violet styled shoot. Enjoy!
We featured a lesbian couple, as we all feel too often same-sex couples are under represented in the wedding industry-which can still be quite old fashioned and traditional! So as suppliers, we wanted to support gay couples looking to plan their wedding.
We mixed modern elements with traditional and timeless to reflect both personalities, but all based on Pantone’s 2018 colour: Ultra Violet. Shades of purple weave in and out the design, from flowers to agate name cards to doughnuts! We pulled it together with copper, which adds a warm cosy feel to the Ultra Violet shades. Our couples were animal lovers, so copper animals are used in their table design to reflect this. Our couple are also vegan, and Tiny Sarah’s Cakes is about the best vegan cakes you will ever taste! We designed a relaxed dessert table, as the venue is a large country house which is yours all weekend, and there’s room for family to stay over too-so a grazing table fits perfectly as they can snack on amazing vegan bakes all weekend! There’s even a cinema room!
As vegans and animal lovers, it was obvious that we tried to make the wedding as eco friendly as possible. The flowers used for the table design could all be split and taken home by guests, the agate name cards doubled up as favours, and the macrame backdrop we used will be used again and again. We used biodegradable confetti, and a gorgeous vintage gown from Sixpence Bridal.
