Here are 3 ways shades of pink can enhance your English wedding

Choosing a shade for your wedding day can be daunting. With trends, your favourite colour or even your bridesmaids who can “only wear one colour”, the decision can bring indecision. So be inspired by a Gloucestershire photographer who has photographed weddings at many beautiful Cotswold wedding venues, the colour palette for pink is endless!

This subtle pink brings a pop of colour to your table. Accenting the napkin with the chargers will make your wedding table the talk amongst your wedding guests. Adding several shades of pink can create depth.

2. Creating shades within shades through your bridesmaids

As a Gloucestershire and Cotswold wedding photographer, I see so many options for wedding bridesmaids’ dresses. You can create a stunning collection of dresses that will suit each of your bridesmaids individually vs them all wearing the same bridesmaid dress colour. Summer weddings look vibrant with a variety of pink as they bounce off the green hues of the trees.

There are a number of Gloucestershire and area wedding venues that can be the perfect backdrop for your pink hues. From the rustic barns at Kingscote Barn, Great Tythe Barn or Winkworth Farm, to venues such as the elegance of Birtsmorton Court, Pauntley Court, or go into the city and go chic such as No 131 and No38 in Cheltenham. Or if you are hosting your wedding on the family estate in a beautiful marquee, let the outdoors work with your stunning colours.
