The wedding bouquet
Channelling the perfect English summer wedding vibe, Colette’s bridal bouquet was a romantic mix of mauve, white, purple and dusky pink flowers, with plenty of green foliage to add volume. Paired with Colette’s chic, sweetheart neckline lace gown, embellished belt and incredible tiara, the overall bridal look was effortlessly gorgeous and utterly timeless.
The bridesmaid dresses
The couple’s six bridesmaids each wore matching floor-length mauve gowns, with a cowl neck and lace detailing. They carried smaller, pared-back versions of the bridal bouquet, to continue the stylish colour theme. Colette and Sam’s adorable flower girls wore white tulle dresses and each had a pretty mauve floral wrist corsage, as a nod to the mauve wedding theme.
The table settings
For the wedding reception, Colette and Sam let the elegance of the Pavilion at Hodsock Priory do the talking. They opted for uncluttered, crisp white settings with a single mauve floral display as the centrepiece for each table. The tall silver stand elevated the floral arrangements, adding a real sense of occasion.
Mauve wedding details
Colette and Sam worked subtle touches of mauve throughout all aspects of the day. From mauve detailing on the wedding signage to mauve petal confetti for the sweetest, eco-friendly confetti toss in the grounds of Hodsock Priory, no little detail was forgotten. Even Colette wore a stylish mauve lipstick on the day, helping to bring the look together perfectly. Now that’s attention to detail!
