The UKAWEP Pantone Colour Challenge Winner

If you follow B.LOVED’s Instagram feed full of pretty – you’ll probably have hear that Louise was judging this years Pantone Colour Challenge by the UK Academy of Wedding and Event Planners. Using the Fashion Colour Trend Report by Pantone, the UKWEP sets Wedding and Events Planners and Stylists the challenge to create a dream moodboard which includes one of the colours from this years forecast. There were plenty of different options to choose from to suit various styles too – from brights such as Cherry Tomato and Lime Punch to the softer shades like Almost Mauve and Blooming Dahlia. You can pop on over to the UKAWEP blog here to take a look at the full details of the competition.

Louise was the judge and it’s really exciting for B.LOVED to be part of this contest because we love being ahead of the trends and to see entrants different interpretations and ideas of how they would work certain colour palettes just fills us with passion for next year! We cannot wait to see what the industry produces with these colours which are always such a huge influence across fashion, interiors and of course weddings! So here is the winner as chosen by Louise and we predict that this colour is going to be one to watch for 2018.

Natasha Cousins of The Wildflower Wedding Company won the UKAWEP Pantone Colour Challenge with her beautiful moodboard for the colour Almost Mauve! Isn’t it stunning! With an elegant essence and romantic details such as whimsical florals and a fabulous statement ceremony backdrop of graceful drapes – you’ll find a concept here which is perfect for Couples looking for a modern yet timeless wedding. Fans of Fine Art weddings will definitely love this look. Louise said; “This board is pure romance and I love the subtle whimsical woodlnd feel with trailing greenery and semi-naked cake.”


Flavia Fuentes of Ty Loves Lucy won the Arcadia category with her fashion forward board! Louise said; “The board has a wonderful balance of old-school glamour and modern style, and I adore the fashion!”


With the cheerful coral hues of Blooming Dahlia, Adela Strnadova of My White Velvet  won with her board filled with sweet, feminine details. Louise said; “Romance meets modern, the velvet touches add some great on-trend texture to this board.”



The brighter colour of Cherry Tomato was won by Bec Minns! There are so many ways you could take this statement colour and creating something festive is definitely a great option! Louise said, “This board makes me feel so Christmassy – a great use of colour and texture.”



Chili Oil is a deep and rich tone which looks so beautiful offset against white, cream and lighter neutrals. Steph Clark of Joy Weddings won this category with her board filled with dramatic floral designs and a sophisticated essence. Louise said, “The perfect mid-winter wedding inspiration, this board combines gorgeous floral elements with rich velvety red tones.”



Emperador is a rich velvety brown colour and Becs Paterson of Ivy and Ice won with her moodboard filled with dark and moody elements. Louise said, “This board is just so different! I love the chocolate tones and clever balancing of colours.” The tweed Groomswear and darker coloured wedding dress are such a great answer to this brief!



Antonia Roskill of A Party Planning took on the challenge of creating a wedding concept using the bright Lime Punch colour! With a really fashion forward bridal look wearing an amazing gown of this colour, she creates colourful touches around this. Louise Said; “Lime is a tricky colour to master, and this board brings a taste of the tropics with its brightly coloured  palette.”



Jade Leung of Jade Leung Weddings created this beautifully romantic vision using the colour Little Boy Blue. With delicate silks, pretty candles and some stunning desserts! This is perfect for Brides’ looking for something romantic and fine art! Louise said; “Blue is one of my favourite wedding hues!  I love the soft, painterly effect Jade has captured in her board.”



Iman Javed created a cheerful concept for the Meadow Lark colour, Something bright, fun and great for the outdoor wedding. Louise said, “Yellow is such a fun and vibrant colour for a spring wedding! I adore the sweet details in this board,  bumblebees, and daisies!”



Pink Lavender is a really sweet colour which I think will be popular. I can’t help but think of a beautiful Chateau courtyard with Lavender displays and beautiful linens in this colour used for the tables! Hannah Mullens of HM Wedding Design won this category with her moodboard which includes the most beautiful tablesetting using gold and navy. Louise said, “This board combines rustic and luxe details beautifully, and I especially loved the coordination of  frothy tulle wedding dress being matched with the table linens.”



Spring Crocus is a a brighter tone of purple and this was won by Staci Hatton! She brought this event to life with Amethyst crystal displays, the patterns of sliced Agate and different textures! Lousie said, “Purple can sometimes look a bit dated, but in this board Staci manages to make it look fresh and modern with hints of disco and a gorgeous pop of yellow!”



Ultra Violet as it name suggests is up another level! Florcita Gonzalez took on the challenge of Ultra Violet and created a moodboard that used this colour offset with white so that it really makes a great statement.  Louise said, “Totally glam and dramatic, this board is for the all-out diva!”
