Cranberry and Black Palette

If you’re at the early stage in wedding planning and everything seems confusing, a good place to start is…well actually a good place to start is a glass of wine and then SECOND best place to start is by looking at wedding colours.

We quite quickly decided on colours: midnight blue, black, ivory and a dash deep pink red (cranberry). There are so many beautiful palettes to chose from though it can easily become a rainbow blur.

Say hello to The Perfect Palette, a nifty website that has created inspiration boards in just about every colour palette. It’s great fun to browse through and you can also search by colour or by themes. Below are some of the colour palettes that are labelled ‘winter’.

…..To a Butterfly by William Wordsworth

I’ve watched you now a full half-hour;
Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little Butterfly! indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless!–not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!

This plot of orchard-ground is ours;
My trees they are, my Sister’s flowers;
Here rest your wings when they are weary;
Here lodge as in a sanctuary!
Come often to us, fear no wrong;
Sit near us on the bough!
We’ll talk of sunshine and of song,
And summer days, when we were young;
Sweet childish days, that were as long
As twenty days are now.
