Strange EVF colour at Reception

Hi All

Just wondering if anyone else has this "effect"?? When I'm filming at the reception and the lights are really turned down I run my on-cam LED light (5400K) to get decent images. The HMC camera colour balances everything perfectly but while filming with the EVF (with the usual one eye for the EVF and one eye to see where I'm going) I notice that any bridemaid that is wearing a purple dress has it turn blue in the EVF. Your left eye sees the dress in purple and your right eye (on the EVF) sees it as blue.

The footage has no problem at all and the purple dresses are purple!! Is this an optical illusion or does my EVF not display colour balanced video??? only will do it with purple dresses ..every other colour displays correctly and flesh tones are accurate!!
