Modern, Cool and Non-Twee Yellow Wedding Inspiration

Well Pantone might well have announced it’s new colour of the year for 2020 as Classic Blue this week, but we’re here today, to embrace a shade rather less typically represented in the world of weddings; yellow.

Love and respect to Ellie Kime, aka, The Wedding Enthusiast, who made it her mission this year to prove the style-value of this often overlooked hue. I love these images, and I love it when a styled editorial is done as well as this one is, with careful consideration given to every detail. I’m appreciating all the images (as is our ‘Yellow’ board on Pinterest), but that eyeshadow is my fave.

“The thought process behind this shoot was that I still felt like yellow hadn’t quite infiltrated the wedding sphere in a way that showed it to the best of its ability – aka a modern, cool, non-twee colour palette. I mixed it with a neutral colour scheme for chic understated tables, and juxtaposed it with the dark and moody setting of our venue, Upper House, Islington.”

“A super cool three-storey pub venue, it lent itself perfectly to all the modern elements I’d pulled together for the shoot. With tasselled stationery from Nat’s Paper StudioMaid of Gingerbread escort fortune cookies (such a good favour-nameplace double up idea, and so delicious too!) and stunning Lavender & Rosefloral arrangements, the table really popped with yellow.”

“Soft, frayed white napkins and gold-rimmed mustard yellow plates completed the place setting, whilst geometric bud vases and muted candles filled the rest of the table.”

Isobel Bakes also pioneered a stunning new cake style for us, with an abstract buttercream face piped on – and Rachel Takes Pictures also did a fantastic job photographing mirrored tables without getting her reflection!”

“Yellow make-up by Lucy Jones representing Knot Your Average Bride and a pioneering, dramatic yellow dress from Rasbery Pavlova also played with the colour in a contemporary, design-led way.”
