I'd like to have nothing but a beautiful panorama behind me when Im getting married.. but while the view from our ceremony venue isn't technically bad, its not amazing either.. the main problem is it's rather vast.. not in an inspiring way, just in a not very cosy way. The whole area is rather spacious and I feel that it made need a bit of clever decorations to close it in and give it a more intimate feel.
So no surpises that I plan to string lanterns between the trees, hung at all different heights to provide a 'ceiling' and am thinking about having a backdrop behind where we say our vows..
I'm not keen on floral arches thinking something more like these
