Colours of Indian Weddings

When we talk about the Colours of India, we take into account the festivals, cities, communities, food, attires, but what we definitely miss out on mentioning, are the Colours of Indian Weddings. India is a vibrant and colorful land with so many cultures melting together to form a sub-continent, and Indian weddings are no exception. The big fat Indian weddings offer us a vibrant color palette to shoot, and here in this post, we selected a few shots from our wedding projects that express the entire gamut of emotions through these colors, in specific wedding rituals. While Red is the primary color traditionally and is a leitmotif in the weddings we did, there is a rainbow of other colors too. Here are some of the bright primary colors that we spotted at Indian Weddings, for you to enjoy !!

Different Colours of Indian Weddings


The most prominent Colours of Indian Weddings. Primary red works well with yellow, white, tawny-orange, green, blue, and black. Tomato red works well with cyan, mint green, sand, creamy-white, and grey. Cherry red works well with azure, grey, light-orange, sandy, pale-yellow, and beige.

Red and Orange do not go together. Being very close colors in the color scale, you don’t want to mix them, as it happens with Brown and black.

At the heart of color theory, the complementary color to yellow is purple, which is a mix of blue and red.

If you want something very sleek and modern, try pairing your bright yellow paint with a dark navy blue, black, or gray. This creates a very cool contrast and instantly looks sophisticated and modern. For a more traditional use of bright yellow, you can try pairing it with a soft gray or white.
