Recently, we were sent these cheerful wedding photos by Freeformimages Photography and we thought you might love them! Claire and James’ big day was full of bright, personal touches and creativity. So, we thought we’d break it down into 8 colourful wedding ideas! They were pros at adding simple yet effective splashes of colour. From bridesmaids wellies to DIY decorations, keep scrolling to see how you can incorporate a little rainbow into your wedding day.
Colourful Wedding Accessories- Rainbow bridal ideas
Claire added lots of colourful splashes to her wedding outfit. Our favourite idea is the rainbow hem on her wedding dress! She rocked a felt alternative bouquet with colourful ribbons, personalised shoes and a rainbow hair piece! For more inspiration on how alternative bouquets can add to your wedding look, see our blog here!
Simple, colourful wedding decor ideas
Claire and James decorated their venue with colourful wedding bunting, pom-poms and rainbow paper fans. These quirky wedding decorations can be super cheap, or even handmade. This is a great way to add colour to your wedding decor.
Unity Sand Ceremony- Unique Wedding Ceremony Idea
After their legal wedding ceremony, Claire and James had a celebrant led sand ceremony. This is a beautiful (and colourful) way to mark the union of two people or families.
You can find out more about how you can personalise your wedding ceremony with a celebrant in our Ultimate Guide To Wedding Celebrants!
Colourful Wedding Ideas- Quirky Signage
Quirky wedding signs like these are a great way to add your personality to your wedding decor. You can have quotes, information or photos displayed in fun, colourful frames!
On another note… how great does this wedding cheese cake look?!

DIY Wedding Entertainment Ideas
This isn’t a colourful one.. but it could be made colourful! Instead of a wedding guest book, Claire & James got their guests to write messages on Jenga blocks! What a fun, sentimental wedding idea! I’m sure they’ll have fun playing the game whilst reminiscing about their big day.
Also, doesn’t this glitter bar look fab? Let your guests get sparkled up before hitting the dance floor! Maybe you have a crafty friend that could help you out.
