Posted: 14th Sep

From Bridgerton to Alpacas, this blog explores 5 wild and wonderful wedding themes that will make for a memorable day for the happy couple and guests alike. For a wedding your guests will never forget, check out these ideas below.


Bridgerton has us wishing we were wandering through grand Georgian estates, sipping tea amongst quintessential gardens in full bloom, and what better time to recreate a Bridgerton fairytale than on your wedding day? Boclair House boasts a beautiful Tudor mansion with its own Victorian style bandstand. Opt for vintage touches like hand written place cards, complete with a personalised wax seal of your new initials together. Embrace the Bridgerton style with a modern empire waist bridal gown or bridesmaid dresses. Think of pastel greens, pinks, purples and yellows for fashionable vintage colour schemes popular during the Regency era. The newly invented pastel blue was the most popular of all, created by mixing Prussian blue with a traditional lead-white base to create a vibrant powdery blue colour with a slightly green undertone.


Barn Chic

Rustic weddings held at farms or in barns are popular for their intimacy and simplicity, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be glamorous too. Mix contrasting décor to create a unique barn chic wedding. Opt for crystal chandeliers, hanging beads andsophisticated draping to elevate the atmosphere of your barn wedding. Wedding themed neon signs are another way to add a modern touch to your rustic wedding and create a fun photo opportunity. For a quirky photo op, why not have alpacas at your barn wedding? These friendly animals are a guaranteed way to create special memories your guests will never forget and put a smile on their faces. Caledonia Alpacas will arrive dressed to impress with bowties and wow your guests with their adorable charm.

Wedding Movies

One of the biggest videography trends for 2022-2023 is creating a short movie that you and your guests will want to watch, over and over again. The classic black and white, intimate wedding videos that focus on the picturesque romance of the day are being replaced with edgier and more colourful mini movies. This trend captures the fun and spontaneity throughout your wedding day, combining the more romantic moments like cutting the cake, the first dance and the exchange of rings alongside all of the personalities, laughter and of course, the dancing. Take inspiration from The Office and create a mockumentary comedy of your big day with your friends. Afterglow weddings are specialists at creating an epic highlight reel of your big day, check out some of their wedding movies on their website!


Weddings are a huge celebration and what better way to celebrate the day spent with your closest family and friends than having a festival themed wedding. Perfect for music lovers, there are plenty of ways to go full out and embrace the theme. Get into the spirit with bunting and haybales to set the atmosphere, adding personal touches with customised lanyards and “line-ups” of the day. No festival is complete without a food truck and The Little Parlour makes the perfect addition.


The sustainable wedding trend is growing in popularity as more and more of us become aware of our carbon footprint. There are so many ways to have a green wedding and little changes go a long way towards creating a more positive impact with your event. Choosing local produce and drinks is a great way to start. Swap out traditional items invites and thank you cards for e-invites or wildflower cards, which can be planted. You don’t have to miss out on the classic confetti picture either! Your Confetti makes colourful bio-degradable paper that your guests can throw freely without harming the environment. They can even be personalised for different colours and shapes to match your theme! For more tips on how to have a sustainable wedding, check out our blog here.
