Design Concept: Blackcurrant Purple and Soft Green

purplegreen

I imagine this type of wedding happening in the winter months, somewhere down to earth (perhaps a farm) and excited guests leaving footprints across frosty lawns. I’d love to see simple, rustic foods balanced by delicate (but quirky) calligraphy and floral arrangements with lots of silvery-grey greenery. In the evening I think some kind of traditional music would be perfect (a ceilidh perhaps), for favours I’d give away Welsh love spoons and for late night snacks I’d serve roasted chestnuts and hot chocolate – delicious!

Inspiration for this concept’s colour palette came courtesy of Nordljus, a beautiful food & photography blog I stumbled across. Now a cabbage isn’t normally something I’d want at a wedding (except perhaps on the menu) but I was really inspired by this beautiful photo. If you are in need of some food eye candy or just have a few minutes to spare be sure to stop by Keiko’s fab blog.
