Making a bold statement with Pantone's Colour of the Year as the ultimate inspiration

When Pantone announced ultra violet as its 2018 Colour of the Year, we wondered. It's an intense, dark, cooler shade that can be a bit overwhelming for use as the main colour for a wedding, especially since we are still in the middle of the blush pink trend. To explore the creative possibilities, we used ultra violet as a key shade for both reference and inspiration, incorporating a gorgeous colour scheme into our editorial that highlights warmth, romance and elegance.


We created two bridal looks for this editorial: one with a lilac daybed framed by a gorgeous warm purple wall; and a second showcasing a warm white lounge room featuring hints of purple to create a beautiful visual dynamic between the bride and the decor.


The shoot is tied together with a table setup featuring an amazing wooden harvest table, and gold metal chairs, as well as a four-tier wedding cake, all framed by the warm purple wall featured in the first bridal look.
