Micro Summer Weddings

We are planning for two very small intimate weddings in the near future. Our couples are adhering to the government guidelines and going ahead with their ceremony only. Sometimes I think the wedding reason gets lost in the planning and paring it right back like this is both beautiful and romantic. One is going ahead in a beautiful 12th century Priory @brinkburnnorthumberlandweddings @englishheritage and the other at a rustic barn setting having only two witnesses present, how romantic @doxfordbarns

A micro wedding is worth considering and can be held anywhere. Just take your love, your celebrant and a beautiful bouquet to somewhere that is close to your hearts.

In England a Celebrant ceremony is not a legal ceremony you do need to sign the legal declaration in the registry office at some point. It does mean though that you can mark the day you had planned with something really special. Last week I found the most beautiful pictures from a wedding shoot In the Lake District, proving you can have the most dramatic images no matter the weather and its all about you. Take a look at the instagram pages of those involved. @cpcelebrant @wildfirefloralco and @esmewhitesidephotography

Whatever you choose let it be the best you can do and make it your own. Share the love and romance.

Hanging florals

pretty hanging florals

Have you thought about hanging florals? Added to your ceremony or your reception venue it can add impact and interest as well as filling in high ceiling space, creating interest. A beautiful central arrangement, hanging above your ceremony space full of pretty scented booms is very intoxicating.

The beauty of a hanging installation as well as adding impact to the setting, means if the aisle is narrow it adds to the space without the worry of something being knocked over, damaged accidentally or caught by your dress as you sweep down the aisle.

Depending upon your venue style then it could be a rustic style with lots of trailing foliage and interest from berries, seed heads and cones. A pretty installation containing scented blooms, trailing amaranthus, peony and beautiful garden Roses such as http://www.davidaustin.co.uk . If it were a hanging installation above your table setting then little hanging globes of light can be added. Light and candle light adds atmosphere and romance to an evening setting in particular.

Hanging florals can add impact in particular to a marquee, what you can have depends on the type of tent you choose and a conversation must take place between the supplier and the florist to discuss hanging technics http://www.collingwoodmarquees.co.uk . Foliage added to the frame work around the edge of the tent as well as something hanging centrally helps to bring the outside in. This works particularly well inside a tipi http://www.specialeventtipis.co.uk .

Suspended single stems of scented flowers and foliage hung in a row above the top table above head height is dramatic especially during the spring and summer months. During the autumn and winter months lush foliage and berries work with dried flower stems of Hydrangea and Sunflower among others adding a little interest.
