Five Colour Schemes Perfect for a Barn Wedding

Pink themed wedding reception hall

Here are five colour schemes perfectly suited to a barn wedding and how to achieve them

It can be hard selecting what colour scheme to have on your big day, so one way to decide is to let your chosen venue guide your decision. Crondon Hall offers a barn-style setting, so here are a few suited colours to consider…

Classic green and white

There is no better combination than green and white when it comes to matching with the rustic wood of our barn wedding venue Essex; the Baronial Hall at Crondon Park. To achieve this colour scheme use lots of green in leafy foliage in a variety of tones mixed with the crisp white of pillar candles, flowers and linens such as tablecloths and napkins. These colours work really well with wood accompaniments like log slices and re-purposed pallets.

Beautiful brights

A bright and bold colour scheme is most effective during the summer season. Think eye-catching hues of fuchsia pink, turquoise, sunny yellow and royal blue. Bring these colours in with your flowers by using sunflowers and coloured roses and decorate with bunting, paper lanterns and candlesticks in your chosen palette.

Welcoming warm tones

If your wedding day is in the autumn months, then a warm-toned theme is a popular option. Use the autumnal hues of rust, terracotta and crimson with the accent colours of forest green and teal. Achieve this with gorgeous deep-coloured red roses and dark green foliage – incorporating the colours not found in flowers like teal with ribbons, stationery details and fabrics. To stop everything feeling too dark you can use light wooden accents or mix in some metallic copper details.

Romantic blush pink

Pale, blush pink is a beautiful and traditional choice when it comes to matrimonial colour schemes. It has soft and romantic connotations and often proves popular for bridesmaid dresses. That pretty pink hue can work well with so many different options; pair with sage green and peach to keep things light and bright, use a deep red to add a darker touch.

Cool dusty lilac

If you’re wanting something similar to blush pink, then a powdery lilac could be just what you’re looking for. It keeps things within the same subdued and sweet colour family but is a little different and less feminine. Any cool tones will match great; for example metallic silver details, eucalyptus leaves and sage green details. You can also make the most of beautiful lilac flowers, such as lavender, asters and lilacs themselves.


Picking a colour scheme for your wedding should be fun and while having a set palette can be helpful when making decorating decisions, don’t put too much pressure on yourself to stick exactly to one of these recommended ideas. Add your own creativity and personal touches to make your big day extra special to you.
