Blue Hue | Duck egg blue wedding inspiration
Happy Easter everyone!
What a whirlwind it’s been over the past month and I’m terribly sorry about the lack of blog posts. What have I been up to? Oh where do I start? Well, the most exciting would have to be that I’ve been busy working on my next collection which is due to be released in the coming weeks. Oh the excitement… watch this space! There are some beautiful new headpieces and veils on the way which I’m beyond excited about. Good thing I’m wearing my black patent leather belt with today’s ensemble or I’d pop!
I can’t wait to also share with you some exquisite bespoke pieces I’ve been working on for some lovely brides. If the walls of my studio could talk, you would hear endless stories about old Hollywood inspired pieces, Art Deco inspired decadence, heavenly boho headpieces mixed with good ol’ classic finishing touches for the stylish belles I’ve had the pleasure of working with.
In the meantime, I wanted to share with you all an inspiration post on a new favourite colour of mine. My inspiration came about by the Easter season and it might also be the fact that Kate Middleton is visiting Australia at the moment so I have Kate Middleton on the brain! Do you remember that Jenny Packham duck egg blue dress she wore on her visit to Singapore in 2012? Well, I’m currently obsessed with all things duck egg blue. I would have to say, I think it’s the prettiest colour and the perfect hue for a shabby chic yet classic and timeless wedding.

When I think of a charming country side or vintage garden wedding, I often think of neutrals, wood tones and hints of duck egg blue or soft pale green. Mix in there ivory, blush and gold tones to add a touch of warmth and I’m one happy girl.
So what is ‘duck egg’ blue? As you can see in the board above, it’s a beautiful shade of greenish blue, like that of some duck egg shells. I’ve also heard of it described as a pale dusty teal or even seafoam with hints of blue. Regardless of the shade, it’s a stunning and versatile colour which can be worked into a range of different colour schemes and wedding styles. Definitely a colour I’d love to include in a future product line!
And I can’t end this post without mentioning the beautiful image taken by We Are Wildwood above of a boudoir shoot. I had the pleasure of working with Claire from We Are Wildwood and Lindsay from Flyaway Bride on this shoot a few months ago and I’ll be sharing more gorgeous photos from this shoot shortly!
Happy Easter to you all – I hope you had a lovely and relaxing weekend with family and loved ones.
