15 Fun Ways To Add A Pop Of Colour To Your Wedding

If you’ve never met me in person, you wouldn’t know that I’m the kind of girl who wears a lot of black but loves to add pops of colour into my outfit through my accessories and the like. I’m a strong believer that everyone can use a little bit of colour in their lives – whether you’re carrying a lemon yellow clutch or a pair of fiery fuchsia heels – every little splash of colour can totally change your perspective on things. In fact, now that I have the little peach hanging on my arm everyday and all day long, I’ve made it a mission of mine to add more colour into my life to brighten up her day a little – so you might find me sporting a pair of peach jeans as soon as the weather cools down a bit! With that in mind, I think the same principle applies to your wedding day because weddings, like life are so much more fun in colour. Whether it’s a grapefruit red or a girly hot pink, there are so many ways to add some bright and bold colours to your day, and I’m going to show you how. Think bouquets, bridesmaids, shoes, cakes, florals and more!

A Seaside Engagement from Paper Cranes Productions

Paper Cranes Productions always manages to capture the most genuine moments with their couples, whether on camera or film (trust me, the hubby and I were lucky enough to have them at our wedding so I personally know this for a fact!). There is always so much love and joy that exudes from each and every frame and this beautiful engagement session along the white sandy beaches of Sydney is no exception. Adrian and Joanna’s love for one other are as clear as the blue skies that graced them that day and Paper Cranes Productions couldn’t have done a better job at snapping it all up. There is so much lovely to take in here – the gorgeous couple, the stunning seaside setting, the beautiful warm sunlight and I’m kind of smitten with the bride-to-be’s chic outfit! Even with the entire hump day gazing ahead of me, I can already feel these stunning images brightening up my day!

A Rustic Hunter Valley Wedding from Cavanagh Photography

There is just something so special and pretty about a wedding at a vineyard. They can be rustic, chic, elegant, fun, intimate or even better – a combination of all five. And Kylie and Mark’s intimate Hunter Valley wedding is living proof of this. Cavanagh Photography captured a beautiful day of love and laughter, bride and groom rubber chickens (yes chickens! Awesome right?) and one seriously gorgeous landscape and you can see it all right here today. And can I just say, those chickens totally made my day! Enjoy peachies!

Bride Kylie shares, “Our love of great food, wine and the ‘simple things’ inspired our wedding day. Planning the wedding was easy, we knew exactly what we wanted and didn’t want lots of fuss to overshadow the love on the day. Our ceremony was at a little rustic sandstone chapel in the Hunter Valley, with a surprise rose petal drop by two World War II fighter planes.

Our reception was held at Margan, a family vineyard in beautiful Broke that had a little bit of Tuscan inspiration. The garnish and most of the produce was grown in the vineyard garden itself, which was one of the reasons we chose this place. For the reception we kept the decorations simple, on the tables we had tea light candles, small sprays of baby’s breath and tiny gift jars of my mums homemade fig, apple and walnut paste.

The cake was made entirely from cheese and included a mixture of soft and hard cheeses sourced in Sydney.

Instead of the traditional throwing of the bouquet and garter, we had miniature bride and groom chickens that were tossed into the crowd, proving to be a real hit for the guests!”

This engagement session has totally stolen my heart. Or to be more specific, this oh-em-gee gorgeous, stop-you-in-your-tracks engagement session by Mavis Photography has stolen my heart. Shalini and Yilette are the kind of couple you’re immediately drawn to. Not only are they super sweet and totally adorable, their infectious smiles and beautiful love for one another had me smiling from ear to ear! I’m pretty sure a new smile line has appeared on my face after this post. And as if couldn’t get any prettier, the breathtaking cherry blossom-filled backdrop made it absolutely picture perfect. Who knew you could see such beautiful cherry blossoms in Canberra!

From Mavis of Mavis Photography, “This special engagement session was taken at the Nara Park in Canberra during one of the prettiest season of the year – Spring. The cherry blossoms were out and that created a beautiful backdrop for the entire session. Shalini & Yelitte are good friends of mine and shooting their engagement session was a real privilege. This adorable couple was just wonderful to work with – they were funny, quirky, photogenic and most importantly… in love… big time”
