The most obvious way to celebrate a woodland meets industrial style wedding starts with your wedding venue, however, if your setting doesn’t lend itself to either, there are so many ways you can transform it with clever styling.
This theme provides the most wonderful array of colour hues to choose from.
The colours you decide to focus your attention on will of course depend on the overall look and feel that you’d like to achieve on the day.
Woodland style is commonly recognised by rusty reds, burnt oranges and beautiful browns; and industrial can be identified by colours such as antique brass, copper, matte black, grey and gold. The two styles are perfectly complimentary of one another. The versatile colour combinations mean it is completely adaptable in so many ways!
Here’s some ideas of colour combinations to spark your imagination:
Forest Like - Forest Green (of course), Sage, Brown Wood and a touch of neutral/beige tones to even things out!
This beautiful table setting is the perfect example of a forest like colour palette. We adore the contrast of forest green against the deep brown of the bare wood, it’s incredibly alluring.
Moody Romance - Deep Reds, Burgundy, Black and Brass
This colour palette has our heart for so many reasons, including, its enchanting abilities! Suited to late autumn and winter months, deep reds, burgundy, black and brass colours create a perfectly moody romantic look and feel.
For The Love Of Autumn - Burnt Orange, Pumpkin, Copper, and Burgundy
If this incredible season has your heart, then burnt orange, pumpkin, copper and burgundy hues are the perfect colours to explore. They naturally evoke a warm, cosy and autumnal look and feel.
You can create anything from warming to an enchanting look and feel with woodland and industrial colour variations.

Lighting is one of our styling essentials! When it is cleverly thought out and displayed, it holds so much power. The woodland, industrial theme is somewhat mystical and this look and feel will be further intensified with enchanting lighting.
