Wedding style: How to do clashing colours

Go bold or go home: this shoot pairs clashing tropical brights with white and gold to create a wedding look that's vibrant, fun and beautiful.

The brief

Mood Who says you have to go for delicate decor at a wedding? Tap into this year's tropical trend to give your celebration an unforgettable look.

Palette Stylist Louise Beukes chose a clashing - but considered -  combination of fuchsia pink, peachy orange, and vibrant purple. The beauty of this bold theme is that it can work with any jewel-toned palette, so feel free to pick from your favourite colours with a few simple rules in mind. "To work a bright palette, you've got to go for it. Pick two or three shades plus lighter accents to make them pop," Louise explains. Flashes of gold add a touch of luxe to the look.
