Mood Board Monday & Choosing a Colour Scheme

This is what I've been looking forward to the most (apart from designing the invitations), choosing a colour scheme/theme. I wanted to wait until we had a venue (although I already knew it was likely to be Butley) before working on the colours as I think the venue can certainly help set the feel of the wedding and I want to complement and enhance it, not contrast with it.

Butley Priory is a 14th Century Monastery and is set in the countryside, not far from the Suffolk coastline. Inside the Great Hall (the room our reception is in) it is light and airy and the muted colours are beautiful.

I know I don't want a bright colour scheme and although our wedding is in Autumn, I don't want to go the traditional red and orange route. I like Sage however which works well at that time of year as well as antique rose pink and golds and creams (perfectly in keeping with the surroundings). So this is the mood board I've come up with so far. This is by no means "the one" but I think the final scheme will definitely be a derivative of it.
