With gothic overtones Ultra Violet is a deep and rich choice for those who are confident and dare to be different.
A stunning wedding colour Ultra Violet works brilliantly all year round with white, ivory or black. For bold contrast it coordinates beautifully with oranges, tangerines and acid greens making it a stunning choice for a summer wedding with all the zingy foliage and gorgeous flowers available. For winter weddings choose copper, platinum and deep jewel accent colours, dried flower crowns and lots of twigs and evergreens in your wedding venue styling. ‘Cadbury Purple’, a warmer tone, has always been a fabulous choice for weddings and we know it works brilliantly but ultra violet is the first colour we believe actually embodies a state of mind and way of life.
