Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey has inspired us this week to look at this much neglected colour as a theme for your wedding. This is one of the most versatile colours on the spectrum and can be teamed with soft corals and apricots, aqua or mint, zesty lime green, yellows and oranges or coupled with  purples and blues.

ringgrey

It all starts with the proposal, this rock is a grey diamond, exquistitley cut in a triangle and set in an elegant mount of yellow gold.

dressgrey

This tulle silver grey  dress, has little fall down sleeves and a ruffled bodice and is reminiscent of a bygone era of glamour. The full, layered skirt will look amazing in photos and for the first dance and is perfect for winter weddings with a fur wrap or for summer weddings too.

lacegrey

Again, this is a tulle gown but this time it is teamed with a lace bodice, fastened with tiny covered buttons and held with tiny show-string straps.

This gorgeous flower girl dress will have them twirling. The silver sequinned bodice will bring sparkle and the flower tied around the waist brings in the different shades of grey perfectly. Change the flower for a different colour and it will still look beautiful.

greybouquet

This bouquet is very striking, with white anenomes taking centre stage, interspersed with silver grey foliage, this is perfect for winter weddings and just add a bit of sparkle for a Christmas or New Year celebration or add a splash of colour to bring it in to the summer.

Again silver foliage, this time Rosemary, will bring scent to these button holes. They could be used to decorate the cake, imagine them against a white or grey background, simple elegant and unique.

flwgrey

An alternative to the traditional bouquet, these bunches of pussy willow, look and feel gorgeous. Imagine them adorning the tables for your wedding breakfast or tiny sprigs, decorating the napkins and tied with a name tag.

treegrey

These twig centrepieces are decorated with white roses on the base with crystals draped form the branches and little votive candles in hanging glass. The table is kept simple and elegant with wrapped presents.

footgrey

We have featured these shoes before but they are still amazing! This time in grey satin with aqua and silver beading and perfectly complementing the theme.

headgrey

Back to that Hollywood glamour with this stunning head piece, it is a vintage inspired piece which has glitter and glitz as well as diamanté crescent brooch, which the feathers explode from.

eyegrey

The right make-up is so important on your special day. This is a smoky eye which has been softened with clever shading with a pastel coral and a brow that has been highlighted to show off a perfectly groomed brow. The eye-liner has been kept to the outer half of the top lid to make the eye appear bigger, with white highlight around the inner corner of the eye to bring in light and add freshness to the eye area.

shoesgrey

We said earlier about adding colour to the grey, this has been done here by the groom and his grooms men with grey and yellow converse trainers. Adds an element of fun to an otherwise plain suit.

Who said grey was boring, these guys look great in many shades and styles. Some opting for bow ties, the groom with a more traditional tie, with waistcoats with or without lapels. They really can bring in their own personalities and again a colour injection would look great too, perhaps with a button hole, a jazzy tie or coloured socks!

heartgrey

These little metal hearts have been personalised with initials and the date of the wedding as keepsakes but they could easily be adapted and used for table place names, which could be tied around napkins or placed on the stem of a glass.

These mix and matched tweed hearts could have a variety of uses, adorning the top table as an alternative swag, decoration for the cake, or filled with Lavender to make useful favours for sweetening the air.

greycake

This cake is proof that grey can be soft and delicate and doesn’t have to have an industrial utilitarian use. This time teamed with aqua flowers and cream ruffle icing, this three tier cake is simply displayed on a china stand.

Black and white photographs can add a touch of nostalgia to your album and this one taken in the Grand Salon at Gosfield Hall proves how the simple use of this can not only highlight architecture and features of the house, it also lends itself to more a more arty look. You can imagine this shot adorning the cover of any bridal magazine.
