I’m a romantic at heart. I’m drawn to pastel pinks in most things; shoes, cakes, flowers, bedding. In fact, my husband often tells me there are other colours for flowers, but he’s wrong. If, like me, you love pink and are planning a romantic, summer, Cheshire wedding here at Capesthorne Hall, this ideas board based on romantic pinks is just for you!
Pink was traditionally considered a colour for girls and blue for boys but nowadays there is no reason why every member of your bridal party cannot wear pink, from the oldest man to the youngest girl, and here’s how.
Continue your dreamy, romantic day by using pinks on your tables, chairs and outside furniture.
This stunning creation is by Lily Rose Events. I saw this display at an open day held at Capesthorne Hall and audibly gasped. It was dreamy and sumptuous, the romantic table setting you deserve.
Your bouquet is where you really get to play with colour. There’s such a wide range of pink shades and different flowers giving different textures.
This romantic design by The White Room Floral Design is a dreamy vision of pastel pinks and creams and these are the ideal buttonholes to go with it.
Pastels aren’t the only colour. Bold colours will add a splash of vibrancy on the day.
Food and Drink
You don’t have to settle for pink champagne to drink. Nothing says summer like strawberries. Add one part fresh strawberries to a daiquiri for a refreshing sunny drink.
This cake by Bloomsbury Cakes in Altrincham showcases two different ways of using pink for your cake.
Ditch the traditional white and express yourself. This pink cake with its intricate design is eye-catching and, having sampled their cakes, will taste amazing.
The second uses pink as decoration. The cascading floral design uses a range pinks for the different flowers and is incredibly effective.
