With wedding season just around the corner, we’ve shared some of the newest trends to help you create a personalised and memorable wedding that is all about you and your partner.
If you love posting content on social media and value high-quality videos and photos, then this brand-new service is for you! Book a social media creator to show up to your wedding, create amazing content to mix into TikTok and reels, and mingle with your guests to shoot casual behind-the-scenes footage so you and your wedding party can just focus on the day and not on your screen.
Ceremony arches are on their way out, making way for more free-flowing floral arrangements. Aisles lined with pots of flowers, plinths and urns with cascading flowers, or grounded floral alters are all beautiful ways to create a stunning ceremony space. The team from Bryleigh House can help you create a bespoke ceremony space.
Weddings have moved on a long way from the formal round tables and the alternate drop of chicken or beef (thank goodness!). Couples are looking for weddings that are a true expression of who they are, and let’s face it, most of us are not that. Cocktail weddings, including unique catering options, picnics, mobile bars and ice cream stations, are becoming more popular, and we expect to see a lot more. Cocktail-style weddings are great because they really have a relaxed, fun vibe from the start. We recommend adding some signature his and her cocktails to your party.
Nearly all wedding venues have a curfew. We know… everyone wishes their party could go later, but those pesky legal requirements like liquor licenses and noise restrictions get in the way. After-parties are a great way to keep the party going, even if it is just with a selection of your favourite people or your biggest party animals. Our garden gazebo, fire pit and decking overlooking Mount Macedon is the ideal place to kick on after your official wedding reception is over.
The Recovery Party
Wedding days go so fast! After months and months of dreaming and planning, then suddenly, one night of love and laughter and it’s all over. When you wake up the next day, presumably in that bubble of happiness, wouldn’t it be nice to have all your favourite people back to hear all their stories, share photos and eat all that leftover cake! Couples often say how busy they are on their wedding day. A recovery party is the perfect opportunity to stop and really catch up with your guests properly.
Post-COVID, more couples are considering micro weddings, with 40 people or less. This doesn’t always mean spending less, but it does often mean bespoke menus, better wine, and a higher budget for those personal touches. Micro weddings are really personal and mean spending quality time with all your guests. We love micro weddings at Lawson Lodge because all of your guests can stay on-site together and enjoy an entire weekend of fun and festivities.
Retro is back, and this classic touch to your wedding is an amazing centrepiece. Instead of cutting the cake, why not pour the champagne and get your party started in a whole new way?
