This month we take a look at some of the more unusual wedding themes to make your special day fun and just that little bit different.
If you want to make your wedding a standout celebration and the most talked about and unforgettable event ever, then there are plenty of off-beat and unique themes to choose from. One way to create a dramatic wedding for example is to go for a gothic theme, which can give your wedding an amazingly chic and stylish touch. Of course, you will need the right venue to truly carry off this style of wedding and with its grand, gothic façade, towering turrets and stunning countryside setting Ettington Park Hotel, in Stratford-Upon-Avon, is an excellent choice.
While a black gown, lace shoes, nails and smokey eyes with accessories to match is one unique way to tie the knot, you could also chose to have a Great Gatsby themed wedding. Bring the roaring 1920s back to life with art deco inspired invites, bridesmaid dresses, decor and even wedding transportation from the era that was all about glitz, glamour and opulence.
Any one of our classic British country house venues would be suited to a Great Gatsby wedding, but Buxted Park Hotel in East Sussex, with its ballroom featuring impress empire chandeliers galleried terrace and beautiful gardens would be particularly ideal.
A Game of Thrones themed wedding is another way to ensure a visually stunning day. A tasteful infusion of nature and beautiful rich colours, furs and lanterns will create the right ambiance and entertainment in the form of jugglers, fire eaters and stilt walkers will give it the wow factor.
Again venue is absolute key to a theme like this, and Woodlands Park Hotel in Surrey, with a Grand Hall that boasts beautiful oak panelling and a stained glass vaulted ceiling, offers the perfect surroundings for paying tribute to this fantasy epic.
An Alice in Wonderland inspired wedding is a great excuse to throw the ultimate tea party for your friends and family. At Rhinefeld House Hotel in the New Forest, you can choose from a traditional summer fete or an English garden party, both of which would be fitting and ensure a picture perfect, magical wedding.
A bold colour palette of pink and purple, together with details inspired by the literary classic, create an elegant wedding look that is also fun. And another way to charm your guests with playful touches is a vintage carnival style wedding.
From handmade details and DIY accents to themed outfits and grander props like an antique kissing booth or even a carousel, your only limitation with these weddings is imagination. With the option to hire out a marquee, Chilston Park Hotel sat in sits in 22 acres of parkland in Kent, would lend itself very well to a carnival wedding.
