Our Guide to Your Fairytale Wedding
Disney’s very own streaming service, Disney+, launched in the UK recently, getting everyone very excited. Finally, a place to watch all of your favourite animated films! As well as classics from Pocahontas to Pinocchio, the platform includes the popular series Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings.
The series, hosted by husband and wife Allison Holker and Stephen “tWitch” Boss, shows couples enjoying their very own magical, Disney-themed marriage ceremonies. It’s certainly compelling viewing, and it got us thinking. Surely couples in the UK deserve the chance to have their own fairytale weddings?
Well, look no further, because here’s our guide to throwing your fairytale wedding in the UK…
Captivating Castle or Perfect Palace?
First, a look at some of the magical venues which might make the perfect place to host your dream day. After all, no fairytale is complete without a glamourous setting!
If you’re looking at castles, perhaps Durham Castle might be to your taste? This historic venue will certainly evoke the mood you’re searching for. Or how about Hedingham Castle in Essex? This breathtaking location fits the bill perfectly. In fact, you can practically see Robin Hood scaling its iconic ramparts to rescue Maid Marian.
If you’d rather opt for a palace as your venue, look no further than Oxfordshire’s beautiful Blenheim Palace. Surrounded by picturesque countryside, this remarkable location is the perfect place for you to begin your very own timeless adventure!
Dress to Impress
What could make you feel more at ease in your fairytale wedding than the perfect attire? When it comes to your wedding dress, you might want something like a classical ballgown, such as this glorious True Brides creation, or to channel your inner Ariel with a mermaid cut similar to this by Pronovias.
And as for menswear, the Prince Charming look is easily achieved thanks to our wide variety of trusted suppliers. So you can both rest assured, knowing that you’ll look your absolute best for your dream wedding day!
Transform your Transport
Perhaps in homage to Cinderella, you might want to upgrade your wedding transport from the ordinary to something a little more special. As quick as the wave of a magic wand, we can help you find something which brings your dreams to life!
If your heart is set on a horse and carriage, The Ostler Carriage Company is perfect for you. Operating all over the country, they’ll be sure to add a little sparkle to your fairytale wedding with their range of ornate and romantic horse-drawn carriages.
Hit the Right Notes
As with any wedding, the music which accompanies your own ceremony will need to reflect the romantic mood. And just as with any good fairytale, the best way to capture this mood is with the soaring sounds of classical stringed instruments.
We can recommend a host of excellent string quartets who will add a romantic soundtrack to your special day. For example, Saffron Strings, based in Wokingham, who have a wealth of experience, enabling them to perfectly fit your fairytale wedding needs!
The Icing on the Cake
Our last, but far from least, handy hint is to make sure that you get yourself a beautiful and breathtaking wedding cake! No matter what style you’re after, whether you want a coloured cake or one which is simply ‘Snow White’, there are plenty of inspired options out there.
Buckinghamshire’s Tracey Mann Cake Design, is a perfect choice. Tracey’s expertise in creating unique and luxurious cakes means that, no matter what fairytale confections you require, she can sprinkle a little magic – and a little icing sugar – over your wedding day!
So there you have it, our guide to help you plan your own magical fairytale wedding. Hopefully, these tips will help you to plan an occasion worthy of Cinderella and Prince Charming themselves!
