7. Into the woods


There’s something enchanting about woodlands and saying your vows within a picture-perfect natural setting. Towering trees decked out with romantic lights and a background of gentle music as the bride walks down the aisle… what could be more magical?


8. Fabulous and fantastical


From unicorns and mermaids to Harry Potter, choose a wedding theme that’s magical in itself! Sure to bring out everyone’s inner child, creating a fantastical celebration promises plenty of fun and plenty of photo opportunities too.

Beautiful brides can transform into a fairy tale princess with their very own magical, glittering wedding dress – not to forget a sparkling tiara for the final touch! Choosing a gorgeously elaborate gown is also sure to cast a spell on your husband-to-be…


10. Bright and beautiful


Create a rainbow of colour throughout your wedding venue; blooming lovely florals, flowing drapes, bright balloons, and showstopping centrepieces are just some of the many ideas to transform the space into a spellbinding world of many colours.


11. The sound of music


Music plays an integral part in a couple’s big day, from a bride’s step down the aisle to the romantic first dance. And whether you incorporate live music into your celebrations, or choose a song with literally magic lyrics, the right musical entertainment is the final ingredient for a truly spectacular wedding.
