Scandi style is as cool as their climate and has been influencing our homes and wardrobes forever, so how about adding a little Nordic bliss to your nuptials?

 

Not just for cold weather weddings, you can add elements of understated Scandinavian elegance to any big day.  It’s the clean cool colours – white, slate and crisp blue hues – combined with natural materials that give this theme its wonderful feeling of purity.

 

Team this classic take on minimalism with the beauty of candlelight, handmade crafts, pretty plaits and even antler decorations for true Scandinavian style.

My husband and I were in Barcelona recently on a lovely, sunshine mini-break. One evening, as we meandered through the cobbled, gothic streets of the city in search of a restaurant (and our next jug of sangria!), we spotted a tiny place up ahead. Its exterior was adorned in fairy lights and was like a romantic, twinkling beacon down through the dark alleyways.

 

 

I said to my husband that fairy lights are such a simple addition but they’re always a sure-fire way to attract people! The restaurant looked beautiful and quaint wrapped up in the cute little lights and their al fresco tables and chairs were full to the brim and bustling with customers.

I love the instant romanticism you get from subtle, sparkling lights. Candles burning brightly, twinkling strings of fairy lights, lines of delicate lanterns swaying in the breeze – I can’t resist a wedding with such shimmering details. It’s such an easy way to add a little touch of magic to your venue.

So, here’s a little light inspiration. From real weddings to buy now pieces for your own reception or party, I hope this brightens up your day!
