10 theme ideas for your Gloucestershire wedding

Newly engaged couples looking for a bit of wedding inspiration to make their special day just that bit more personal, can check out our round up of 10 theme ideas for your Gloucestershire celebration.

Loved-up couple looking to tie the knot and add a bit of personality to their wedding celebrations can look no further, as SoGlosWeddings’s has put together 10 theme ideas for your Gloucestershire big day.

With everything from Harry Potter themes for bookworms to circus celebrations for fun-loving brides and grooms, there’s something for every kind of couple to host a wedding to remember.


1. Festival fun


Take your wedding celebrations alfresco for a festival- themed shindig. Think music, tents and lots of welly boots and create a fun-filled relaxed celebration that’s made for summer days.

Boasting some of the UK’s most stunning settings, the Cotswolds has a whole array of festival-friendly venues perfect for an outdoor event including Cotswold Field of Dreams and marvellous marquees from the likes of Bisley Marquees & Hire Co.. Oozing with inspiration, our real wedding couple, Rebecca and Andrew pitched up camp on their family farm for a festival-themed wedding in Cheltenham.


2. Jet-setters


Globetrotting grooms and their brides can theme their big day with memories from their travels. With everything from destinations for table names to suitcase shaped cakes, there are plenty of touches to showcase your jet-setting time together.

Two of our real wedding couples, Helen and Stephen and Victoria and James both took inspiration from their love of travelling for their big day themes.


3. Potter mad


Brides can go from Muggle to Mrs with a Harry Potter-themed wedding. Fuse some magical touches into your day with a cake covered in Snitches or a sorting hat for a table plan.

True Potter fans can tie the knot at the beautiful Gloucester Cathedral which was famously used as the filming location for many of the Harry Potter films.


4. Winter wonderland

Pay homage to your favourite festive season with a stylish wedding celebration incorporating all the warmth and excitement of Christmas. Decorate your venue with real Christmas trees, fairy lights and theme your wedding breakfast around a Christmas dinner.

Go all out with Christmas trees and decorations or, opt for chic winter touches like Sophie and Owen did with their elegant December wedding at Elmore Court.


5. Tea party


Loved-up couples can set the scene for a quintessentially British tea party complete with china tea cups and cake stands galore. Dress your venue with bunting, flowers in jugs and an array of floral patterns.

Opting for afternoon tea instead of a traditional wedding breakfast will be a hit with sweet-toothed guests. Take inspiration from Sam and Darren’s summer wedding, which treated guests to a delicious afternoon tea.


6. Circus celebration

Fun-loving brides and grooms can have the ultimate big kids’ celebration, complete with circus stripes, a coconut shy and games galore.

Adorn your venue with playful touches, life-sized animals and even circus toys for the little ones and grown-ups too! Kick-start the theme with fun and colourful invitations, and with the help of prop hire companies like Gloucestershire’s, Aisle Hire It, your own wedding circus will come to life.


7. Beach bash


Although pretty far from the seaside, beach-loving brides and grooms can bring all their favourite parts of the coast to their local wedding reception.

Adding subtle touches including shells and drift wood to the table places or, going all out with beach-themed invitations. After a beach proposal, real wedding couple, Carolyn and Richard Jupp added beachy touches to their celebrations, with table names linking to the Isles of Scilly and a shell-covered cake.


8. Foodie feast


With the wedding breakfast one of the main highlights for many foodie couples, there are plenty of ways to mix up a traditional meal with your very own food wedding fest.

Couples can opt for tasty alternatives with a pizza party, tapas boards, or a classic foodie favourite, cheese and biscuits. With the likes of Relish Events Catering, Birch Catering and Ross and Ross Food all serving up plenty of tasty treats, all that’s left to do is tuck in.


9. Easter extravaganza


Perfect for the chocolate lovers, an Easter-themed wedding adds a playful touch to your wedding day and being in spring means there’s a whole host of luscious pastel shades and florals on offer too.

From adding subtle touches with chocolate eggs for favours, or hosting an egg hunt for the little ones as well as the big kids amongst your guests, don’t miss our hot list of eight ideas for an Easter-themed wedding.


10. The Great Gatsby

Well known for its opulence and grandeur, Gatsby’s era of the 1920s is perfect for a sophisticated soiree. Rich in golds and blacks along with extravagant glassware, couples can celebrate in style with a Gatsby-themed reception.

Combining an elegant setting of Elmore Court, pearls and a 1920s dress, Jessica and Kenny’s 1920s-themed wedding is overflowing with chic inspiration.
