Romantic Autumn Wedding Inspiration Palette: Marsala & Navy

Marsala may have been the Pantone colour of the year for 2015, but we still cannot get enough of this rich, luxurious, and elegant berry shade for autumn weddings. If you’re not familiar with ‘Marsala’, it’s basically red wine, and looks as delicious in a bouquet as it does in a glass! Today we’ve paired it with a deep navy and chosen inspirational images with gorgeous gold and greenery to make the pairing even more romantic and regal. A Marsala mix is simple with flowers, from ruby red Dahlias to burgundy Hydrangeas and of course plenty of fresh berries and greenery, your wedding florist should be able to create something with massive impact for you to have and hold (and if you have the budget for it, may we suggest going full-blown oversized bouquet to make an even bigger statement!?) If this palette sounds right up your street, check out our moodboard below for more beautiful ideas.
