Originally derived from the cobalt salts of alumina, cobalt blue pigments have been used for centuries as a coloring agent in the production of ceramics, paints and jewelry. For today’s modern brides and grooms, however, we just think it’s a perfect color to add your wedding day. Cobalt blue might not be for the faint of heart, but if you’re looking to make a bold statement with your color palette, here are 5 ways to do just that!
Bright cobalt blue pairs great with other bold colors. With so many wonderful pops of colour, this color scheme is perfect for a fun summer wedding, don’t you think?
Cobalt blue doesn’t have to take center stage in your color scheme, and can act as a great accent colour instead. Here, it injects a touch of cool calming color to a vibrant and warm palette of pinks, reds, and oranges.
With radiant orchid being Pantone’s color of the year, perhaps a purple color palette is up your alley? Cobalt blue is a similar enough shade to fit in with all the purple hues and just different enough to make things interesting.
We think coral and cobalt are a true match made in heaven. Add a hint of metallic silver and you’ll have a color palette that all your guests will be raving about!
Love blue so much you can’t settle on just one shade? Then this ombre color palette is the perfect way to express your love for all things blue while celebrating your love for one another!

Andy and Ash always wanted a wedding that was shared with closed friends and family. Limepark provided the best enclosed and private ceremony of love and celebration. They had an intimate, 60 guest reception where Ash sang and played the piano. Since Ash is originally from Zimbabwe, nothing beats a good braai (bbq). Andy and Ash are so in love and it shows it through the celebration of their wedding.

The Edwardian era is synonymous with prosperity, conspicuous consumption and leisured elegance. Weddings at the beginning of the twentieth century featured many of the familiar traditions that are still upheld today. The cake, white dress, bridesmaids and bouquets were all commonplace and featured in the periodicals of the day. To capture this look we love lace details paired with a romantic peach, cream and green palette. This will definitely have your guests thinking that they are extras in Downton Abbey.
A candlelit reception with multiple courses of fine food and wine is as Edwardian as you can get. Plus, you don’t need to be the Lady of a stately home to recreate it. Floral centerpieces should be tall and abundant, with a blend of soft pastels to add some color to a darker room. Include some antique touches in your decor with cut glass vases and polished silver.
