Enchanted Garden Wedding Inspiration
Everyone wants the storybook, fairytale like wedding, let’s admit it. And we believe that everyone deserves it. But it’s not just about the romance and sincerity of expression, but about the entire set up of your wedding day. Where to start? We have sought inspiration from favourite children’s novel ‘The Secret Garden’ by Frances Hodgson Burnett, with a hint of the fantasy world from ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ by William Shakespeare and come up with several essential pieces of inspiration for an Enchanted Garden Wedding theme.
Flowers in Bell Jars
There is something very ‘Beauty and The Beast’ about flowers encased in bell jars, which of course is the ultimate ‘enchanted’ Disney story. Use them as table centre-pieces or place sporadically around your venue and accompany with candles in the evening for another-worldly effect.
Food and Foliage
Doesn’t sound very appetising, we know, but what we mean is surround your dessert table, wedding breakfast tables and cake table with flowers, greenery…anything botanical basically. This will create a sort of Midsummer Night’s Dream feast, as if the food has magically appeared. There’s also something about greenery making food look fresh, organic and even more appetising.
Candle and Floral Table Runners
With health and safety in mind (obviously) floral table runners and candles need to come hand in hand for the perfect enchanted garden wedding. You can’t have one without the other. Make table runners wild, textured and almost inconveniently big! Your guests will just have to embrace the picnic-esque dining experience!Outdoor Lighting
Start with the trees, then the plants, then anything else you can wrap a string of fairy light around. If you want to go really dramatic and impressive with your lighting scenography, we highly recommend Lightech who manage all the lighting for our special events here at Capesthorne Hall.
The Perfect Garden Setting
Featuring Capesthorne’s own gardens, obviously for the perfect Enchanted Garden Wedding you will need a venue with exquisite gardens of their own. Look for a garden which offers a different illidic appeal with the change of the seasons. Look for spots that will provide perfect photo opportunities and be sure to check with your wedding venue about dressing the gardens with lights or other scenic enhancements.
Featuring the incredible work of Swallows and Damsons, Kesali Flower Studio and Firenza Floral Design, forget about tightly bound posies with pastel coloured roses and embrace the call of the wild. Give your florist free reign with branches, eucalyptus and ribbons and have a bouquet full of texture, boldness and character.
