With 2016 peeking its head around the corner, it’s time to bid adieu to Marsala, Pantone’s 2015 Colour of the Year, one of our favourites in recent history. Marsala, it’s been a pleasure…

Marsala, whose name comes from the deeply hued fortified wine of the same name, is a rich, earthy red-brown tone that is warm and sophisticated. It well-and-truly made its way into the wedding industry. From Marsala bridesmaids dresses and bouquets too, here are some of our favourite uses of Marsala by brides across the globe.
