Romantic wedding ideas

There are so many fabulous romantic ideas that you can bring into your wedding and, when the day is all about love, we think you should definitely include a few romantic touches. Whether you choose to go for grand gestures or smaller details, it’s time to up the romance levels…

Display photos from past family weddings. These displays always get lots of attention from guests and it’s lovely to share romantic stories on such an important day. On a fine day, set up your display in our gardens as a great centrepiece during your drinks reception.

Romantic wedding décor for a barn wedding

When you think about romantic wedding décor, you probably think of pink and pastel colour themes but really, you can create a romantic look with any colour. Romance isn’t just in colours, it’s in the styles you use and the elements that you include. Remember that your idea of romance could well be very different to someone else’s and that’s absolutely fine – include the romantic details that work for you so that your wedding is authentic and unique to you. Here are some ideas that you might like to consider for your barn wedding:

Giant balloons are perfect props for wedding photos and they also make great decorations for barn weddings. They can be moved around the venue too so can decorate your marriage ceremony and your wedding reception.

Share you own love story by creating personalised table numbers. The number of dates before your first kiss, the number of months before you got engaged, even the number of Valentine’s Day cards that you’ve sent each other could all inspire your table numbers.
