Make your wedding ceremony stand out from the crowd with these scene-stealing ideas
CIRCLE OF LOVE
Instead of the traditional arch shape, why not go one step further and choose a circular floral centrepiece for you both to stand in front of when you say your vows? Not only do circles represent wholeness and eternity but it will also create a stunning backdrop for your photographs and add a wonderful surprise focal point for your guests as they are greeted with a fresh and wow-worthy take on the traditional arch in the form of a giant floral wreath. Also called moon gates, wedding gates or infinity arches, these can be decorated with flowers from every season, and once your ceremony has finished, your structure can be moved for optimum wow factor - and photo opportunities - during the reception.

WHAT GOES AROUND
Create an intimate ceremony feel, whatever the size of your guest list, by placing your guests' chairs surrounding you. Again, this symbolises the infinite but also helps involve all your guests whatever their stature at the wedding, so it's not just the key players who are at the front. Circles can also be tweaked into elegant spiral shapes. This way, the bride and groom can walk past every chair to get to their central point, creating a beautiful journey where they can be admired and congratulated by each and every guest en route.
Instead of a sweetie bar, choose an assortment of different-coloured and scented petals and let your guests shower you with scented blooms after your ceremony. You can add put them in an assortment of jars of different sizes to recreate the candy station feel and it will make for immense fun, especially for any little helpers. You'll be rewarded with spontaneous and stunning photographs too - just make sure your guests don't mistake them for sweets and tuck in!
A hidden bubble machine that fires into action during or after your ceremony will create the most magical of scenes. Light, ethereal bubbles are just the thing for a graceful ceremony. Watch your littlest guests try to catch them and make sure you let your photographer know what's happening so they can capture the beauty of the bubbles. Or why not hire a bubble performer who will wow your guests will bubble sculptures of all shapes and sizes that magically move through the air, or even put your guests inside giant bubbles!
