Today’s Coco Colour Palette is a stormy story…

Think midnight blues, steely greys and soft blush pinks, together creating a moody yet feminine ambience for a Rustic Romance wedding.

I’m sure the current climate is causing a few sleepless nights for those impending summer Brides, after all, don’t we all do a little dance to the Gods to hold off on the wet stuff and pray for the perfect light…? I know I did.

But for those of you who are planning a future sultry soiree why not be inspired by this dramatic summer atmosphere, there’s something so very romantic about this weather. And a kiss in the rain…? Utter perfection.

Create your own stormy story by incorporating the following ideas…

Look to nature for colour inspiration, I love amaretto, asphalt and taupe.

Add texture with soft, light tweeds for your Groom and glistening beading on your own gown – I love the way this blush wedding dress compliments the deeper colours and adds a girly touch to a quite dark and masculine palette.

Dress your girls in platinum silk and chiffon for a wistful look, add delicate white petals in their wild hair, again to soften the moodier tone.

Use the weather to your advantage to capture some beautiful images, such as this hauntingly romantic photograph by Jose Villa of the Bride in a rain smudged car.

Create your own dramatic yet cozy atmosphere with twinkling tea lights and why not ask your guests to light a sparkler as you drive off into the stormy night…

Are you inspired by the current summer storms…?

Do you like the mix of masculine and feminine…?

Do you long to be kissed in the rain…?

Oh do tell.

Take a peek at our Rustic Romance collection for your perfect summer celebration, I can promise beautiful venues with weather contingencies galore!

Lots of love…
