Every bride wants to look their best on her special day.  It’s a day to make your dreams come true and to remember forever.

Your wedding dress will be one of the most important clothing purchases you ever make.  Choosing a wedding dress can be an exciting and fun experience but with such a huge choice of colours and styles available it can also be a little bit daunting.

Your perfect colours

Traditional “white” wedding dresses come in many shades from icy whites, soft whites, creams and ivories through to beige and coffee; so, if a traditional colour is your choice then knowing your best shade of “white” will ensure you look radiant on your day.

And if you don’t want to wear “whitWedding couple and bouquete” ? Then there is a huge range of alternative colours from blush and nude pinks, powder blues to pearly greys and silvers, soft golds, or anything you want really.  Either way, the right colour for you will give you an unrivalled glow.

Expert colour analysis from one of our highly trained stylists will ensure you get your colours right for your big day and your honeymoon (and not to mention the rest of your life).


Apply the results of your colour analysis to your bouquet and wedding flowers, bridesmaids’ dresses and venue decorations and your whole wedding will harmonise beautifully.
