If tranquillity and elegance were tangible, this would be the resultant colour scheme. White and beige speaks of understated sophistication and almost evokes a sense of weightless joy in your heart. Think fine China, delicate pastries, gents in stylish beige suits and ladies in chic vintage hats, playing croquet on the lawn while bathed in the soft glow of late afternoon sunshine.
This colour scheme highlights the innocence and light mood that is commonly associated with the wedding day. We just love how the soft beige cuts through the clinical edge of the white, bringing an almost French flair to the table. If white’s not really your colour, this is the opportunity to crack the traditional mould (and not break it altogether) in a timeless beige wedding gown.
Lighting is crucial both for the wedding pictures and the actual venue, so be sure to work out a timeline that allows for a “golden hour” photo session and leave room in the budget for an experienced lighting technician.
In terms of “what’s on the menu”, this colour scheme lends itself perfectly to freshly baked breads as well as swirly soft cream cakes, French vanilla macaroons, buttery croissants and buttermilk pastries. Flower-wise, adorn the tables with a selection of beige and white roses, peonies, lilies, carnations – all flowers with an elegant yet vintage-like character.
For a more wholesome country ambience, feel free to introduce natural textures like cotton, burlap, wood and hay into the equation. Alternatively you can opt for a more contemporary look by adding fresh greens and touches of gold.
