With so much nude and ivory on the wedding scene Hayley and Lorna of Starry Eyed events wanted to show brides how the subtle use of colour in a wedding dress can not only be exciting but often look even better against individual skin tones, rather than harsh whites and ivories.
Shot at Budworth Hall, a beautiful town hall in Ongar, these gals proved colour really can look good anywhere, taking their creativity to a whole other level with the decorations and creating the most epic celebratory rainbow backdrop with so much colour and even more impressive, lights!
“We would advise couples to think about what makes them happy when considering ideas for their wedding? Think about your best moments as a couple, anything from camping at Glastonbury, to travelling around India or your favourite Italian restaurant!” She explained.
“And don’t think about it for too long!” She added.
“Its a celebration, it shouldn’t take over your lives for 2 years!”
“When deciding on decor, concentrate on big impact focal points, behind a top table for example, the ceremony area or over the dance floor. If you have a tight budget, simply show off one thing that is spectacular!”
“Like our metallic and crepe paper streamer backdrop. This was an easy DIY project, super budget friendly and you can buy coloured foil curtains, skinny tinsel and an array of paper streamers on sites like Ebay. Simply measure out the width and length of the space you want to decorate, make sure you can hook it on or tie it securely on either end first. Then lay the string on the floor and strand by strand staple the metallic strips, tinsel and streamers along the string. When you have covered the length you want, grab a friend and hang it up! This could be created for under £50 for a small space, it just takes a little time and some creative no how.”
