Alternative wedding altar

An amazing altar will set the entire mood for your ceremony, and is the backdrop for the most emotional part of the day - the exchanging of vows - so why not do something special?

A simple, brightly coloured garland adds a sweet dose of character, while masses of streamers create a fun and festive atmosphere. Want to make a statement? Rustic windows and door frames are great for achieving an eclectic look. For something a little more low-key, an arch draped with curtains or fresh flowers adds a touch of elegance and simplicity. Perhaps you have a special quote or phrase that speaks to you as a couple? Hang it from an archway or have it printed on banners to make it a part of your big day. Not a fan of the archway and want to try something a bit different? Try a unique table set-up instead. Use lanterns, flowers, books, suitcases – whatever takes your fancy!
