Trend Alert – Purely Pink

Trend Alert – Purely Pink

Blush has long been the go-to colour for brides and though we love it too, it’s great to see couples embracing other shades of pink, from bubblegum to fuchsia, coral to magenta. Pink is everywhere in the shops right now and is having a particularly huge moment thanks to the July release of the new Barbie movie, featuring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.

Pink symbolises unconditional love, health and playfulness, making it the perfect choice for any style of wedding but pink does require a careful hand to keep it chic and sophisticated. David Austin Wedding Roses are the ideal flower to introduce pink into your wedding in an elegant way and here are four ideas to help inspire.

Romantic Pink Rose Bridal Bouquet

This gathering of pink David Austin Roses is exquisite and show-stopping in its simplicity. Without any foliage or other flowers to detract from their beauty, each rose variety has space to bloom and be truly appreciated for their unique colour, form and fragrance. From our palest blush roses like Eugenie, Purity and Keira to the watercolour tones of Constance and pillowy candy-pink Miranda, this ombre bouquet of pink roses feels decidedly modern and totally romantic..

Pink and Red Wedding

Once considered a serious fashion faux pas, red and pink is now a much-loved colour pairing for those serious about style. There’s no need to pick between these two shades, in fact we love to see them both used in abundance for a dramatic wedding look that’s sure to make a statement. Tess and Constance look fabulous together (pictured below) but don’t limit pink and red to your wedding flowers alone – add splashes to your decor through tablecloths, napkins, candles and tableware to really up the drama. And if a traditional ivory wedding gown feels too conventional, why not go pink? Dress designers to look out for include Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier, Emilia Wickstead and Millia London.

Bold Pink Rose Bouquet

Pink roses are an eternal wedding favourite and our specialist Wedding Rose collection at David Austin provides a choice between pretty and dramatic tones. Pink symbolises friendship, affection, harmony and compassion, making it the perfect colour choice for a wedding in any season. Whether you choose a soft marshmallow blush rose like Constance or Keira, a brighter Barbie-pink Miranda or the deep fuchsia tones of Kate and Capability, there’s a perfect pink David Austin Rose for you.

If you want to create a sense of drama for your wedding reception, ask your florist about elevated arrangements such as rose trees (pictured below). Based on the traditional style of a round topiary tree, these rose trees were handmade with David Austin Roses and are pure luxury and sure to become the talking point of your big day.

Pink and Blue Table Centrepiece

Pink is an unabashedly feminine hue that you can choose to embrace in all its sugary sweet glory, or temper with cool shades like powder blue or soft grey. Here Joy Proctor styled a dramatic pink rose centrepiece with a pale blue tablecloth, ticking-stripe napkins and beautiful hand-painted candles to slightly temper the strong hit of pink. The natural tones of the rattan chargers and chairs also bring an organic feel to the tablescape, providing contrast to the glamorous and blousy Constance, Miranda and Juliet roses.
