Twinkle Twinkle, Little Light

Add a touch of magic with fairy lights or naked bulbs for your backdrop. It looks incredible on photos and will add a warm and inviting ambience too! Get creative with the drapery of the lights to create a stunning look!

Natural Nature

For those couples who are lovers of nature, using elements like leaves and branches can create a very serene and calm atmosphere. You can be creative with this idea – create a huge wreath, an arch or even a magical ombre solid wall of leaves.

All that Sparkles

For a glam look – why not give the 80’s a Throwback with its Sequins! Sequin backdrops are becoming quite popular because it adds a fun and festive element to the wedding! It can be as classy or outrageous as you like – sequins are available in any colour you can think of!

Romantic Ribbons

If you are having an outdoor wedding celebration, then using ribbons for your backdrop will add a little bit of fun movement to the ceremony. A gentle breeze will cause the ribbons to flutter slightly – just keep an eye on the weather – if you’re expecting strong winds, it might be best to tie them at the bottom or utilise the idea in your reception venue.

Letters to my Love

For the bookish romantics, creating a type-orientated backdrop will tickle your fancy. You can tell your love story, use your favourite poem or the lyrics to your favourite song. This is a lovely and sentimental idea, but can be made so unique with different fonts and lengths of the backdrop – you can even extend it to become the aisle runner too!
