Our Song Is…

Every couple has that song that perfectly encapsulates their relationship or takes them back to a super sentimental moment every time they hear it. If you and your partner want your song to be part of your big day, make it the background of your ‘I do’ moment! Get the lyrics of your special song printed onto a delicate sheet to hang up as your ceremony backdrop.

Words Of Love…

Similarly, an alternate altar idea is to decorate your backdrop with your vows to one another! This uber sentimental option can easily be DIY’d by sanding, staining and then painting your vows onto a large piece of wood. This touching tribute to your new life as a married couple is sure to have your guests grabbing for their tissues!

Cosy Nuptials…

If you’re tying the knot during the colder months, you can make your guests feel a little bit cosier by setting up a freestanding fireplace at the end of the aisle! Despite the small detail that the fireplace doesn’t actually work, this creative ceremony backdrop is absolutely adorable and will give your wedding guests the illusion that they’re all snuggled around a warm fire. Make the set up even more homey and sentimental by lining the mantelpiece with photos of you and your partner or laying down a cosy rug.

Light Me Up…

Want to add something trendy to your ceremony? Why not light up your altar with a bright neon installation! This ceremony backdrop is uber fun and can also be a sweet way to incorporate something sentimental into your wedding pictures. Your neon sign could be the initials of you and your partner, or your favourite quote about love. 

Rustic Perfection…

Achieve the ultimate vision of rustic beauty at your altar with a free-standing wall of wood panels. Choose a mix of different stains and tones for a true rustic affair. Alternatively, pair your wood panels with delicate blooms and lush greenery for a more romantic backdrop. An added bonus of this choice is that after the ceremony, you can transport the installation to your reception venue to be used as a photo backdrop!

Dreamy Drapes…

Transform your altar into a heavenly swirl of fabric and colour with dramatic, sweeping drapes at the end of the aisle. Hang the drapes from a wreath made of flowers or foliage to create the perfect frame for your nuptials. This delicate option for your ceremony backdrop will ensure that all of your wedding photos are filled with an air of vibrancy and soft colours.

Oasis At The Altar…

Let leafy greenery be the hero of your ceremony backdrop with a natural art installation. Entwine a small collection of delicate pale flowers throughout an abundance of fresh foliage for an altar accessory that screams bohemian beauty! Elevate the look with the addition of taper candles lining the aisle right up to the altar to create an even more romantic ambience.

Bountiful Balloons…

Keep your ceremony backdrop youthful by jazzing it up with a bold balloon installation! We are obsessed with the balloon wedding trend and love the adaptation of incorporating this fun idea at the altar. Opt for a classy look with sophisticated shades of gold and silver or go full-on fun with plenty of bright colours. 

Light As A Feather…

Take your whimsical beach wedding to the next level with a breathtaking feather installation at the end of your aisle! This creative backdrop is perfect for framing a waterfront ceremony where the sea breeze can ripple through the feathers and create a truly heavenly atmosphere.

Full On Florals…

Of course one of the most popular choices for ceremony backdrops is a total floral fantasy wall! Hosting every bloom you can think of, this altar option is perfect for a romantic springtime garden wedding. This blooming focal point can be arranged to create an atmosphere of rustic romance, sophisticated elegance or bohemian beauty depending on your wedding theme!

Geometric Genius…

Romance meets modern design with these geometric ceremony backdrops! Delight your guests who have a soft spot for all things aesthetically pleasing with an altar backdrop that boasts unique and graphic designs. Incorporate different shapes and materials to create an eccentric backdrop that will add that extra bit of wow-factor to your wedding photos.
