A Black & White Affair

Written by Emma Hla
The Coco Colour Palette is back today with a simple, elegant and oh-so-classic wedding style…

This, in my humble opinion, is the epitome of stripped back glamour and effortless romance. Your black and white tones will scream luxe, but do add depth by experimenting with delicious handpicked textures.

Be bold and dramatic with your wedding stationery, the first indication of said palette. I’m in love with the reversed suite below – willowy white script inked onto charcoal paper.

Or maybe look for the drama in your surroundings, I certainly know a few gems from our Classic Collection that would fit the bill! I’m loving the dark walls below and the chequered flooring.

Create classic touches with an arch of blooms at the entrance to the church, or indeed as a gorgeous focus for your aisle. Serve champagne to your guests with inky blueberries bouncing in the bubbles and treat with traditional sugary macarons in surprising colours.

For a true Princess touch look to stiff silks and structured gowns, but soften with a touch of tulle in a veil or skirt overlay – perfection. Get that boy of yours in a tux! Your heart will melt when you see him and he’ll believe he’s 007 all day long!

Oh and for the florals, velvety-creamy roses, of course.
