Choosing A Wedding Style

If you are just starting to plan your special day and choosing a wedding style, then there is no better starting point than looking at photographs of Real Weddings.

Here are a few of the City Weddings, Stately Homes Weddings and Barn Weddings we have photographed. We have selected just a few images from each Featured Wedding which should kick-start your journey in choosing a wedding style.

Creating Your Own Wedding Style

When it comes to choosing a wedding style, ensure it suits both of you and reflects your personalities. Whether you wish to have a small, intimate wedding or something on a more lavish scale, you will want a theme running throughout the day.

This may be a co-ordinated ‘colour theme’ reflected in the choice of ceremony and reception floral arrangements, bridesmaids dresses and groomsmen’s waistcoats for example.

On the other hand, a ‘rustic theme’ may appeal. We have photographed many amazing weddings held in beautiful barns with exposed beams adorned with twinkling lights, flagstone flooring and steeped in history. Many are set in stunning surroundings.

A city-centre wedding is a popular choice when couples are choosing a wedding style. Guests have options when arranging transport which helps when travelling to, and home from, the wedding venue. If they choose to stay in the vicinity, then hotel accommodation is easily arranged too.

Choosing A Wedding Style With A Festive Theme

Many couples we have worked with chose to marry around Christmas. Weddings arranged for times away from the popular summer months can be less expensive. If you choose an hotel for your wedding, then you should find it decked with holly – as well as Christmas trees, lights, balls and tinsel! You could continue the theme with your own festive centre pieces, a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings and choose crackers as wedding favours. This would pull a fun wedding theme together beautifully. India and John’s seasonal wedding photographed by Steve at the 5-star South Lodge hotel at Horsham, West Sussex was a terrific success.

How will YOU style your wedding? If you are still undecided then why not visit our blog on themed weddings. Here we have highlighted what we consider to be the Top 10 Most Popular Wedding Themes, from a floral theme to an outdoor theme – and many more in between, to suit all bridal tastes.

If you are at an early stage of planning your wedding day then you will find our Frequently Asked Questions page most useful.

We hope, also, our Featured Weddings choice illustrates how we will be at your side, unobtrusively, as your day unfolds.
