A Grey Affair

Forget 50 shades of grey, soft grey is one of my absolute favourites when it comes to wedding colours. It’s not a choice that many people may make, however when used alongside other stunning colour tones such as dusky pink, berry tones, peach twists or simple nudes it can shout out, ‘stunning alternative’ to typical wedding colour schemes.

If you want a base colour, a stylish base colour that pops out using a sophisticated look, then look no further. I mean, look at this suit for starters.


Grey can be used for a frosty winter style using colours and textures, such as the ones used in the bouquet below. For a more striking look you can use brighter tones and textures. It really is an all-rounder.



This dress is something that I can only really say WOW to. The colour, tone and intricate detail really are a one off, WOW!


When using this colour I always think it’s best to use it as a main colour, for example, this table setting has the grey overlay/table cloth as it’s base colour with small grey accents being used throughout. The main colour pop is being demonstrated through the flowers, using tones of your chosen colour will add class and style as well as colour interest.




Grey can be used as the main colour to allow the colour to flow, see the beautiful chair décor and wedding cake below, perfect examples of how to use the colour to frame your lovely flower displays.


Just look at this stunning cake made by one of our wonderful friends. Nat from yummy little cakes really has shown how to use grey when making beautiful wedding cakes.



So if you are looking for an alternative to black, then grey really is your colour. Check out our pinterest board to see some more stylish options when using grey.

Love is in the air <3

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Love certainly is in the air today. With that in mind I have decided to start our new year’s romantic resolution today.

Every busy business owner knows that there are never enough hours in the day to complete all those outstanding jobs, let alone the exciting projects milling around in a creative persons head!

I have decided that 2015 is a good time to start a feature that I have wanted to do for such a long time. Real Weddings! I really need to stop keeping these a secret and start to blog some of our wonderful real weddings, which have taken place over the last few years. I have some wonderful memories of these days and now it’s time to share them with you all.

These will be written in our couples own words, along with some input from myself when needed. I cannot wait to post the first one… watch this space and let’s see some lovely couples on their special day.

In the meantime I have some lovely inspiration coming up for next year’s weddings and a lovely grey colour palette that is just to die for.

Much love on this loving day 😉
