Relaxed Unique Micro Weddings

Top of the wedding trend list is smaller informal gatherings allowing more intimate, meaningful celebrations with your nearest and dearest.  This allows a more lavish spend on a smaller group for a more bespoke and personal touch.

Most importantly of all, they also allow the bride and groom to spend quality time with each and every guest – one of the reasons for its surging popularity.

Going Big

In line with smaller and more intimate weddings it’s no surprise that one of the latest wedding trends right now is for unique oversize decor and giant personalised statements; huge centrepieces, unique photobooths, floral arches and tunnels adorned with lights and flowers that take your breath away when you walk into a room.  

Large Florals

Flowers are a defining part of any big day; flower displays provide a visual uplift and can even transform a venue.  

Going big with florals is a wedding trend we’ve seen in recent years and contuines to be a big trend.  Go big with large bouquets and trailing greenery, floral headbands, adding large floral displays, blossom trees, flower arches and even giant flowers.

Bold statement colours are all the rage, as well as those with different textures and shapes. 

Beautiful Lighting

Great lighting can transform your wedding venue; making it glisten in the moonlight and create a beautiful atmosphere at sunset and provide some amazing photos. Therefore, it’s no surprise that one of the top wedding trends of the year is for mood lighting. 

Look at different ways to integrate lighting in a unique way. From exposed bulbs to mini lampshades and vintage chandeliers to candles on a beach. There’s lots of different ways that you can bring a touch of sparkle to proceedings.
