Aisle Style – 20 Beautiful Wedding Ceremony Lighting Ideas

If you are to be a winter bride, as I was, then ceremony lighting will (or should) be an especially important consideration when it comes to planning your wedding and decor. You see, lighting provides an awful lot more than just the obvious, being light! (much needed by your photographer to capture those key memories) As the sun sets and your ceremony starts, it also creates warmth for your guests and the most romantic of atmospheres – and if, as we did you go with scented candles, it can also infuse your ceremony with the most beautiful aromas. So today, for the fourth in this series of Aisle Style posts, I am showcasing my favourites of the 20 most beautiful wedding ceremony lighting decor ideas. Whether your ceremony will be indoors or out, rustic or glam, church, garden, barn or woodland copse I have inspiration just for you……

Lanterns

A fabulous (budget friendly) alternative to chandaliers, lanterns are just as effective – hang lots from a tree in mixing and matching styles for a really striking backdrop…..
