Hargate Hall Wedding: Eclectic Wedding Inspiration
Donna and Mark decided that one theme was not enough so their theme was; all that we like. And who can blame them. Eclectic is good and allows you to mix and match to your heart content knowing that no-one is there to judge you but to celebrate with you and enjoy the day. This post is about all the ideas they had that you could borrow. This is not featuring the whole wedding as there is a youtube virtual album of it, which I’ll link to at the end so you can still see the wedding from preparations to the first dance.
1- Hearts of course. The first one was on the pillar you saw from the road so it put you in the romantic mood straight away.
2- Hen Night Mementoes- a little present from the girls.
3- And a little present from the One you are marrying, just to melt even further.
4- Signage. Some generic ones and some personalised ones.
5- Keeping the ones who’ve gone away in our hearts, and sharing this day with them
6- I love these letters- no pun!
7- the page boy had the rings, securely attached and the flower girl was supposed to spread the flowers on the floor but preferred keeping them. Just make sure you explain it well.
8- Fairy lights give these amazing effects I love.
9- Drinks and cake with a funfair (the wheel had cupcakes on it) and Alice flavour
10- I love veils, but forgetting- oops- to put it on means you have two looks in one.
11- Archery as you can see on the title image, and birds of prey. It gave the guests something to do while we went into the woods to take some photos. We had two photo slots- about 15 min each if that, to make the most of different areas and lights. We also did some bridal portraits inside, you’ll see.
12- Irish dancing, or at least an Irish band and lots of dancing.
13- A maypole: and why not? it’s fun and colourful and nobody ever gets it right.
14- A bouncy castle, and not just for the kids.
15- An ice- cream van- There was a burger van later on too.
16- A chaise longue in the middle of a field and a HUGE story book.
17- A wedding planner to help beforehand and on the day: Linzi from That Black and White Cat. I must say she was a God’s send as I always had someone I could turn to and she didn’t even mind!
