As experienced UK event videographers our team have seen examples of the best and worst wedding styles to date
(PRWEB UK) 21 January 2015
While expectant brides often have the wedding dress of their dreams in mind for years, and although many couples know what type of theme they want for their nuptials, the key factor that is often overlooked and which will inform every decision from the type of venue to the food is an overall style for the Big Day.
As leading UK event videographers, Bloomsbury Films have seen what a motley affair a wedding can turn out to be if the style is not properly defined. They offer the following guidance to help couples get on point.
Country garden flair will never go out of date advises Bloomsbury, and this type of style works well for a range of people, from those who like to be close to nature to couples who want a simple yet elegant wedding. A variety of venues can be used to suit this theme, from home garden settings and romantically rustic barns to the wealth of beautiful estates spread throughout Britain. The only time a country garden affair is not an option is obviously during the winter, since guests will not be able to enjoy the flowers and greenery that make this style so magical.
Vintage style has made a major comeback in recent years, so it is not only fashionable but also the perfect choice for couples who love the traditional charm and grandeur of by-gone eras. Bloomsbury suggests ideal wedding venues to reflect a vintage feel would be manor houses and marquees. Other tips would be to have classic vintage decorations such as an antiquated-looking wedding book for guests to sign and generous bouquets of dusty pink roses placed everywhere. For entertainment, a folk band or a 1940’s type singer would be just the ticket.
Great Gatsby Glamour
The ‘Roaring 1920’s’ was a time of sheer glamour and luxury, epitomised in The Great Gatsby written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The style themes here advises Bloomsbury would be extravagance, such as glimmering chandeliers, candelabras, opulent staircases and art deco interior design, not to mention plenty of Champaign and fireworks. Ideal wedding venues for this style would be luxurious hotels and manor houses.
For couples that want nothing to do with traditional styles and instead prefer a cutting-edge, futuristic appeal, Bloomsbury suggests a wedding venue such as an ultra-modern hotel, complete with shiny surfaces, impressive futuristic architecture and above all clean spaces as opposed to tons of ornate furniture and detailing.
Director of Bloomsbury Films, Andrew Cussens, concludes: “As experienced UK event videographers our team have seen examples of the best and worst wedding styles to date. While not exhaustive, we wanted to explain the top styles that work every time, as well as highlighting the fact that an overall style need not cramp individual flair. We hope this will help couples clarify their vision for the ideal look and feel on their special day.”
