Ultra Violet

Inventive and imaginative, Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come.

I just love that!  Perfect timing as the new year begins, with promises of magic and mystery and expectation.  

Pantone’s colour for 2018 was announced in December as Ultra Violet, with the website stating the shade is “A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.”

It may be futuristic, but shades of purple have been a popular colour choice for weddings for some time now.  Perhaps Pantone’s announcement will see wedding trends depart from the classic all white scheme, or blush with hints of rose gold, to embrace this more dramatic look.  

One of my favourite ways to introduce shades of purple into a wedding, party or event is through lighting.  Subtle blue-purple lighting creates a dreamy atmosphere for guests to revel in, and we’ve collected some images below from past events to show just that.

If lighting isn’t your thang…opulent floral arrangements in Ultra Violet shades are magnificent when coupled with cascading greenery, blues and white.  

We’re looking forward to seeing what event designs are inspired by Ultra Violet in 2018.
