Greenery in all its Glory


We were so excited when we heard that the Pantone colour of the year for 2017 is Greenery. A gorgeously fresh, vibrant tone that provides a crisp, versatile palette for a stunning wedding. We’ve rounded up a few ideas to infuse your wedding with some natural beauty.

The obvious choice for a green theme is to include natural leaves and foliage in your day. If you’re brave enough to forget the flowers, using green thistles and ivy makes for a striking display. Or if you pine for a flower, a natural pairing is white. Choose simple pure white blooms to stand out.

Accent your day with flashes of greenery – it’s not just a colour, take inspiration from all that you see around you in nature. Green sits comfortably alongside browns and whites, so look for these complimentary colours when choosing a palette. And if you’re feeling extravagant, or need some sparkle, add a golden hue for some luxury glamour.

Add a splash of green to every element of your day – including your outfit! Hide a gorgeous green shoe under your gown, or add some fresh, natural foliage around your neck for a totally different necklace choice.

    Loving this colour! I am photographing a styled shoot at a stunning Lancashire Country House Wedding Venue next week which is going to feature the brides bouquet and grooms button hole being styled to this colour theme. I am looking forward to what the florist is going to produce!
