As a respected event specialist, Bloomsbury Films has attended countless weddings of all types and sizes. Along the way, they have picked up some key knowledge about what works and what doesn’t on the Big Day.
The following guide sees Bloomsbury revealing some of the innovative new wedding trends which will impress guests with their contemporary creativity.
An Alternative to the Traditional Catering Hall
Raw Bars are currently a modern sensation at a number of events, and if done correctly they can transform the traditional catering hall feel into sheer urban sophistication, particularly in the warm summer months. Bloomsbury advises that the successful examples they have seen have nothing to do with melting blocks of ice, stringy seaweed, and thoughtless piles of seafood. Instead, couples cannot go wrong with a ‘grab and go’ seafood buffet featuring small plates of oysters on a bed of sea salt and individual shrimp cocktail shooters in clear glass holders.
This is best complimented with a stylish condiment bar, packed with miniature bottles of Tabasco sauce, pepper grinders plus cocktails, lemons, and horseradish in stylish glasses. Adding to this, the spread should have tasteful floral arrangements threading through the table with colours that match the seafood.
Creative Bridal Bouquets
The tightly wound bridal bouquet in no longer in vogue advises Bloomsbury. These days, brides are opting for a looser ‘just-picked’ look, with Farmer’s Market picks such as dahlias replacing more formal roses. Trendy bouquets these days also sport more colour creativity, rather than the single tones that were once popular.
Black and white photographs for events have seen a major revival of late – they bring a timeless, romantically classic appeal. Bloomsbury suggests that when interviewing photographers for their wedding package, they should ask whether he/she is able to shoot in both colour and black & white, so they can have their special moments captured in both. Sepia is another option for those who long for a stylish vintage wedding.
Minimal Bridal Parties
Kate Middleton seems to have contributed to the new trend of opting for a smaller bridal party. Not only is this more intimate, it also places less strain on friends and family. Currently, Bloomsbury advises it is all the rage for brides and grooms to simply ask a Maid of Honour and the Best Man to stand up with them. Some couples are even doing away with the bridal party altogether.
Director of Bloomsbury Films, Andrew Cussens, commented: “There are many facets of traditional weddings which have stood the test of time for a reason – they work beautifully. Nevertheless, we hope that some of the innovative wedding trends we have shared will inspire people to try something a little bit different on their special day.”
