Do you love colour? I capture colourful, natural wedding photographs.
I get excited when I find a colourful doorway, lush greens in a garden, vibrant oranges at sunset.
Don’t hide colour – I celebrate them!
My photography is described as colourful and natural.
Colour provide indicators of times of the year, lush greens and autumnal tones but in wedding photography and perhaps in all photography colour creates a mood.
Colour catches the eye. It helps to set the style and theme for your whole day, as well as helping you choose elements such as flowers, bridesmaid dresses, the wedding cake and stationary.
If you’ve already got your eye on a venue that already has a certain style, think about the colours so that highlight and compliment the best features of your venue.
Finding a venue can be the cornerstone moment of wedding planning for some couples, for others, their favourite flowers, the wedding dress or the ultimate bridesmaid attire can be the deciding factors in choosing a colour scheme. So if you have certain must-haves, without which you can’t imagine your wedding, get those scribbled down.
Draw inspiration from your chosen wedding season. Pastels can work well for winter, jewel tones will look fantastic in autumn, so feel free to experiment with textures and different shades!
What kind of wedding do you want? If you’re after a feeling of luxury and drama, then go for darker and richer colours. If you are a fan of a romantic atmosphere, lighter shades will look perfect.
Look in your home and wardrobe for colour inspiration. The colours that dominate there are obviously the ones you love. Bonus: the wedding photos that will take their place on the mantelpiece will even match your home – now that’s planning!
Grab a colour wheel. The basic rules for colours are that cool and warm colours go well together, as do colours which have the same primary colour base.
Within that, you can pick an analogous colour scheme, with three colours located next to each other on the colour wheel, or you can choose complementary colours, which sit directly opposite each other on a colour wheel. Alternatively, you can go for monochromatic colours, which are a number of different shades taken from the same hue.
Our general rule for choosing wedding colours is to have at least one neutral colour which your guests’ eyes can rest on to balance the bright colours in your palette. And there you go!
Every year, Pantone releases its “Colours Of The Year”, a list that attempts to predict the colours that will be everywhere in the coming year. The irony is that this list often decides what the predominant colours will be the next year, and thus what’s readily available from suppliers and shops.
Needless to say, when choosing wedding colours, choose shades that are easily wearable, especially if you want the bridesmaids to carry the majority of colour – and talk to you again!
I love to use colour, it is a main element in my photographs. The beautiful colours of a wedding dress, the bouquet, table decorations and (fingers crossed) some warm evening light. Back at my computer I love to work on developing and enhancing the colours from your wedding day
