Reds are becoming sweeter in AW 16/17. Coral and Pink tones bring out the richness of the shades. These reds work well within organic palettes also using contrasting highlights to lift the colour scheme. Red does not have to be dark and intense, this brighter approach is perfect for an autumn wedding.

Sweet Red - Inspirational palette

Sweet red shades mirrored with cream, rose pink, riviera blues. These work well next to earthy browns. Tweed and organic textures can be highlighted with metallics if you wish to add sparkle.

Navy blues have become more red in tone, giving the richness of indigo as a key colour for AW 16/17 with other shades of sea blue which can be used to compliment. The key trend with indigo this season is to use texture and shade to bring softness to this dark tone. The use of marble or watercolour effects, tie dye or overlaying light over dark shades help to achieve this look.

Indigo - Inspirational palette

Indigo blues paired with frosted shades of gold show a touch of opulence. Mustard shades can be used as a highlight within smaller details, bringing this autumn palette added richness.

Evolving from the key colour of Damson in AW 15/16, shades of winter wine have become a prominent colour for the autumn winter season. The deep tones of purple and burgundy can be softened with lilacs and cream. The richness of these can be paired with tones of blue and greens.
