Flower Power – Floral Arches & Trees

There’s nothing as romantic as flowers which is why they’re just perfect for wedding ceremonies. There are lots of creative ways to include them that will give your ceremony space that wow factor – we love the idea of a dreamy floral arch greeting you as you make your way up aisle. Blossom trees are equally beautiful and would look fab flanking either side of the altar!

Pew Ends

If you’re looking to pretty up your aisle and introduce a pop of colour, pew ends are your answer. Lots of couples opt to use flowers in their pew ends to tie in with their colour scheme but there’s lot of other cute ways to spruce up your aisles. Wicker hearts, photos of you guys during your relationship, bows pinwheels or freestanding candles will also work beautifully. Take a peek at some fab inspo here!

If you’re after a striking backdrop for your ceremony, a flower wall is a gorgeous touch. This pretty piece is a real showstopper and will create a seriously romantic setting for your vows. But you don’t have to stick to just flowers, your backdrop can be as creative or unusual as you please. We’ve seen everything from beautiful draping with fairy lights to wooden shutters and geometric installations!

Personalised Candles

Many couples opt for a candle lighting ceremony to symbolise their new union. We love the idea of making it extra special with some personalised candles. You can have everything from your names and the date to a sweet inscription or quote. Another lovely idea is to honour a lost loved one with a candle inscribed with their name.
