Are you planning a summer wedding in 2024 and looking for some inspiration to make your big day even more special? Look no further than Chalk Barn, nestled in the beautiful countryside. As a popular Wiltshire wedding venue, Chalk Barn offers a stunning setting for your celebration, with picturesque views and contemporary features.

When it comes to choosing a theme for your summer wedding, the possibilities are endless. You could embrace the natural beauty of the countryside with wildflowers and rustic accents, or create a standout contrast with an industrial and modern theme. In this blog we will take a look at three of our favourite summer wedding colour themes for 2024.

Perfectly pastel

Are you under the impression that a pastel-themed wedding is only suitable for spring? Contrary to popular belief, a pastel colour scheme can be used all year round. The combination of soft colours can create an atmosphere of sweet romance, perfect for weddings in any season – especially summer. 

The pastel palette is so versatile, with a colour to suit every couple and wedding theme. We love how soft purple, orange, and yellow tones can create a warm and inviting atmosphere, or how gorgeous pinks and mellow greens blend into the natural and earthy surroundings of Chalk Barn. 

To complement this theme, you can choose delicate floral arrangements and chic decor that will add a touch of sophistication to your wedding. We’re obsessed with this vivid tablescape at a recent Chalk Barn wedding.

Having been named ‘Colour of the Year’ by Pantone, bright magenta exudes romance, confidence and style. Balancing the bold with soft pink colours creates the perfect balance, and adding some greenery and metallic accents can elevate the modern touch of this theme to a whole new level.

Just imagine beautiful and vibrant pink floral arrangements, lush green foliage, and gleaming metallic accents throughout the venue – our minimalist barn.

Less is more

When it comes to weddings at Chalk Barn in Wiltshire, neutrals can be a stunning choice for your colour scheme. Imagine walking down the aisle surrounded by the soft, romantic glow of an all-white or cream palette with subtle beige accents. This timeless and elegant theme can create a dreamy atmosphere that will leave your guests in awe.

To add a bit of depth and interest to your neutral colour scheme, consider playing with textures and patterns, such as whimsical tulle or soft satin. These details can truly elevate your luxury modern wedding aesthetic, while still keeping the overall look cohesive and elegant.

And for those looking for a touch of soft glamour, warm accents can be the perfect addition to your neutral colour scheme. From gold cutlery to bronze tealights – these smaller choices can add a big impact and create a truly luxurious feel for your special day.

A soft and neutral colour scheme is a timeless wedding trend right now, and we see this continuing to be an on-trend wedding theme for summer 2024 and beyond. G&J achieved this beautifully at Chalk Barn by adding in standout bronze candelabras and candlesticks to create a classic and romantic atmosphere.
