Complementing colors!

    Hi there,

    Im shooting a wedding soon :eek: and I'm looking to choose the best color lighting for the background during the ceremony!

    The bridesmaids will be wearing purple and the bride will be wearing an Ivory/white dress. Dark suits for the men.

    I can chose from various different colors: Green, Red, White, Purple, Yellow
    Pink and theres possible others!

    What would be the best option to go with and or safest from a photography point of view!

    Why would you be looking for a coloured lighting background? Every building will have different white balance.

    A church/place of ceremony is what it is. Go there at the same time of day as the wedding and see how the light can be or can change.

    It sounds like you're planning on bringing a backdrop to the wedding??? Make sure its ok with the person giving the ceremony and there is room for it. Get there hours early to make sire everything works. Sounds like way too much hassle for me to do all that stuff.
