Beautiful & Colourful Wedding Inspiration For Glamorous Urban Brides

Beautiful & Colourful Wedding Inspiration For Glamorous Urban Brides

I am in no doubt that urban brides, and many other brides and grooms will enjoy taking a look at this beautiful & colourful wedding inspiration photo shoot. It was styled by the talented Alegrar Events and photographed by Jay Emme Photography. You can find all the credits for this shoot after scrolling through the stunning photography.

“I took inspiration from the venue or this shoot and wanted  to showcase to brides that you can have a chic wedding in the most unconventional of places,’ explains Cynthia of Alegrar Events.’ I think colour plays such an important part in creating an ambience for your big day, so I wanted to show how complementary colours can be tastefully incorporated into your day without it feeling too overpowering. We opted for gold with bright and deep reds, peach and pinks contrasted with green foliage. We then added cerise pink mini favour boxes tied with teal ribbons to lift our opulent gold table.’

Cynthia also continued the gold theme through the Audrey Ashley couture wedding dress, the vine gold lace detailing on the bodice worked incredibly well with the jewellery chosen for the bride.

What I love most about this inspiration shoot is that it demonstrates to couples that you can still opt for a very glamorous wedding theme/look even if your location is very urban. I am also a big fan of using bold colours with golds and more muted colours. Don’t think for a minute that you have to choose colours similar to your venue. This is a mistake. On the contrary, you should opt for contrasting shades for more of a bold/stylish feel.

A colour that I predict will be huge for 2017 is green, thanks mainly to Pantone unveiling ‘greenery’ as their Pantone colour for 2017. As you can see from the photographs below, green looks stunning next to gold and bolder colours such as reds/pinks and purples.

I hope you enjoy taking a look at these beyond gorgeous images, perfect for glamorous urban brides

The gold jewellery works so well with the tone of the dress and the colour of the model’s nails.
