Belinda and Yogesh’s Vintage Wedding

We were delighted to do the set up and styling for the table settings for the gorgeous Belinda and Yogesh’s wedding at Lion Gate Lodge in the Royal Botanic Gardens before Christmas. This included the teacups, faux pearls and vintage book centre pieces, the candelabra’s, crystal vases, fine china dinner plates and silver cutlery. The stunning flowers were by Belinda’s talented sister Tracey Sankari and the photography by Nattnee Photography. Thank you for letting us share in your special day Belinda and Yogesh x

          

Wedding Ceremony Backdrops

When planning the decor for your wedding ceremony there are many ideas to choose from.  I love a vintage wedding as you can be as imaginative as you want to be!  A wedding has so much more meaning if you can add a few little homemade touches to it that represent you and your partner. 

Today I am focusing on backdrops as many wedding ceremonies are taking place outdoors which leave a bride and groom with a blank canvas when it comes to decorating this area.  This can be a little overwhelming; however there are many ways to create backdrops with a touch of vintage charm.  I have put together some ideas to help you.

  1. Use vintage wooden doors or shutters to create a backdrop.  You can use two or three doors hinged together and have them freestanding behind the celebrant.  Drape flowers over them or hang family pictures off pegs from hessian string.
  2. A vintage dresser looks gorgeous set up with flowers displayed in teapots, vintage bottles or crystal vases.  Another great idea is to display several different picture frames along the shelves with different photographs of the bride and groom.
  3. Something a little different is to use an old wooden freestanding fireplace as a backdrop.  Keep it simple by displaying fresh flowers and gorgeous candle holders. 
  4. If you have a few trees or a gazebo you can use at your ceremony, another option is to hang old window frames.  They look fabulous outdoors!
  5. Make a curtain backdrop out of several strips of ribbon, material and lace.  This creates a very whimsical and romantic look and you can chose fabric to compliment your colour theme.

With a garden ceremony all of these ideas will look fabulous.  These personal touches really are worth all of the effort for your special day as you will have wonderful memories to look back on, not to mention beautiful photographs.

 Happy wedding planning!
