We loved being a part of A&M’s special day – being a make-up artist (often for brides!) A has seen her fair share of wedding styling and ideas. Perfect, then, that she compiled all of her favourites together to form their special day!
So much effort was put into every corner of the Chapel, no stone was left unturned and it was completely transformed, from ceremony to dancefloor!
For the ceremony a white or cream aisle runner lights the room from below and brings a nice clean look to the room, the brightness matches that of the naturally-lit domed ceiling. Trailing foliage along the aisle to complement the foliage hanging from the balcony and draped at the top of the pillars is a lovely way to bring the outside in.
Candle and fairy lights give the room a warm yellow glow that lasts into the evening softening everything.
A&M opted for soft billowy pampas grass in bottles twinned with blush pink and white smaller posies; introducing different heights makes the pulpit steps come to life and draws everyone’s eyes to travel over the different arrangements.
Each table was named after a different gin – which I’m sure made for some fun wedding prep making sure the bottles were empty! – and the name was displayed via the bottle which held individual flower arrangements surrounded by votive candles and posies. Combining your table names into the decorations is a great way to signpost subtly, and it made all the tables more colourful inviting everyone’s eyes around the room.
The Chapel’s dancefloor is kept simple more often than not, so we love to see couples add something to it to make the evening photos that bit more magical! Light up letters are a fab photo opportunity, particularly striking as a backdrop to the first dance!
Have a think about what small touches you can include that make a huge difference to you special days! Happy planning!
