Alternative Wedding Ideas

Whether you picture yourself alone on a private beach or dressed up to the nines in a stately home, every woman daydreams about getting married. Don't fancy the standard white dress and church set up? Step into the unknown with our unusual wedding themes and ideas.

The Fairytale Forest Dream

When the weather’s fine, there’s no better place to be than outdoors. Hold your wedding reception in the forest and benefit from rich scenes of sunlight peeping through trees and incredible outfit possibilities. Creative ladies will have a field day planning their forest wedding; adorn trees with lanterns, decorate tables with foliage and hold your evening do in ambient yurts.

Plenty of UK venues host woodland weddings but if you don’t want the risk of rain check out La Garriga near Barcelona in Spain.  An old medieval house dedicated to wine production, the venue now hosts out of this world weddings surrounded by trees and nature.

The Literal White Wedding

Take the conventional white wedding in a new direction by heading to Lapland for your big day. As far as alternative wedding reception ideas go, getting hitched in a snow chapel then partying on the holy island of Sami is pretty out there. Lapland is located in prime northern light territory so you can just imagine the photo opportunities!

Ride to your snow topped venue on a sleigh drawn by reindeer, search for gold at the venues special panning site and stay in the most unbelievable igloo for your first night as bride and groom.

The Bestival Inflatable Church Do

It’s a little unorthodox, but now you can legitimately get married at Bestival. Enter the Big Love Inflatable Church- the blow up wedding venue complete with live music, barmy outfits and theatrical fun. It’s definitely a unique choice and extroverts will love the ideal of a public wedding amongst festival goers.

And the fun doesn’t stop after the ceremony, out of the box evening entertainment ensures that the party goes on well into the small hours. Expect stage dancers, famous DJ’s, 70’s disco lights and huge confetti cannons. As for accommodation, if you don’t fancy slumming it in the main camping site, you can choose to go glamping in a themed tipi, bell tent or cloudhouse.
