If you haven’t already heard, the peeps over at Pantone (the official authority on all things colour) have announced the 2015 colour of the year.
Drum roll please… And the Pantone Colour of the Year 2015 goes to… Marsala!
Rich, earthy and vino-inspired, the rusty red wine colour of Marsala has undertones of brown and at first glance it can take some warming to. However, once you delve a little deeper this full-bodied beauty really comes to life.
“Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.” – Pantone Colour Institute.
When it comes to weddings, Pantone’s Marsala instantly feels like an obvious autumn/winter wedding colour palette, however teamed with brighter pops of pink and against the white of a wedding, Marsala can really make a year-round statement.
So this week’s Friday Five introduces this seductive colour to you and shows you five areas of your wedding where Marsala could add impact.
“Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth.” – Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute.

Erica & Nathan ♥ California, USA
Photographer: Atelier Pictures
There’s something so enchanting about California weddings. Maybe it’s the ethereal light as the glorious sun sets, or possibly it’s the magical outdoor venue locales, or it could be the relaxed yet refined Cali-style hospitality; whatever it is that makes wedding’s in The Golden State so charming, Erica and Nathan’s nuptials exudes all of these characteristics and more and is captured to perfection by Atelier Pictures.
Be prepared to seriously covet Erica’s big day style. This gifted (not to mention beautiful!) bridey designed her gorgeous wedding gown herself and she also planned and decked out the whole stylish summer soiree, with some help from her hubby-to-be and some fantastic friends. This is one talented DIY-queen and so it will come as no surprise that Erica has her own furniture restoration business and blog and that Nathan is an artist!
If you’re considering saying ‘I Do’ in the Californian sunshine, or if you’re looking for DIY wedding inspiration, then this is the real wedding for you!
