A classic black and white wedding

One of our more recent clients has chosen to have a black and white wedding next summer. With a gorgeous venue in the Essex countryside this is definitely going to be an elegant affair. We have been asked to follow the theme of diamonds and pearls, so our first port of call was to create the mood boards to get an idea of what style she would like to go for.

Now rather than just have black and white, we felt it would be better to introduce and a few softer colours to help break up and soften the palette.

Our first mood board uses Black, white, Ivory, silver and green:

The style summary was: elegance, romance, diamonds and pearls are the key components for this classic theme. Well cut black suits and dresses, with elegant decor to match. The tables will be decorated in black, white, ivory and silver with hints of diamonds and pearls throughout. Green could be the accent colour and can play a heavy part in the foliage of the flowers as well as accenting details here and there to help brighten the room. The Pathways, tree’s and tables to be candle lit creating a romantic and cosy setting. Games and canapes on the lawn to enable your guests to relax, later followed by music and cocktails to get the night started on the chequered dance floor. Sky lanterns and sparklers are a great way to end a perfect day.

Our first mood board uses Black, white, ivory, Oyster, grey and silver:

This is a slight twist on the original brief but ties in well with the elegant diamonds and pearls theme as well as their stunning country venue.

Becky and James are a great couple and we are really enjoying working with them. Watch this space for more updates on their summer wedding!
