Sunshine Kisses

The brighter your confetti the more it will stand out in your photos. However, if you don’t want too much colour but still want the brightness, a mixture of ivory and yellow is perfect. This mix will be subtle enough not to impose on your photos but bright enough to create the impact you are looking for.

Purple is the new pink

This gorgeous mix will suit a purple or pink themed wedding with its pale pink boldly standing out amongst the purple rose petals and pale blue delphiniums. This has been made using Candy Floss, Frosted Blue and Parma Violet.
