This hand-died calligraphy table runner has ‘Love’ by Edwin Morgan inscribed. Further flourishes appear across fabric flag table numbers and fabric menus in collaboration between Knot & Pop and Lamplighter London.

4. Croquet

Let the entertainment double-up as an accessory with a classic croquet set, laid artfully on the lawn.


5. The perfect vessel

Don’t leave the flowers to do all of the work – take the opportunity to use the vessel in which they’re housed as a decorative addition to your table. This copper vase and candle holders both elevate the flower heads and add an opulent touch to the scene.


6. Table place settings

8. Elephant

Channeling a sense of Edwardiana meets wanderlust lovers, meets Colonial style… and a whole lot of elephants, this wedding day detail is an example of how a wedding can truly reflect a couple’s story. This wedding day detail is from a couple who courted in India – Knot and Pop loved the idea of weaving the sense of travel and India into their wedding day.


9. Bring the outdoors indoors

Bring a natural, organic, and artisanal feel to your décor for a relaxed party atmosphere. Harking back to the festival feel of Woodstock and the 70s, the chic bohemian styling of this marquee beautifully lent itself to inky blue palettes and rich botanicals, mixing fern and foliage with ever-green florals.


10. Lanterns

These dip-dye lanterns with ribbon tassels are an inexpensive detail that is set-off with a gorgeous dark blue lining for the dance tent. The ceiling of the marquee also has foliage garlands, teamed with blue dyed ribbons, tied on to flutter in the summer breeze.


11. Balloon table names

Avoid a cluttered table and create interest with height by using giant balloons as your wedding table name signs.


12. Crates dessert table

Tables needn’t stay a necessary, but mundane, addition to your day – get creative with crates for a design-led dessert table display.


13. Ice creams

In a fun, simple summer wedding idea, put a playful spin on the ice cream cones with these cup cake cones. Incorporate your wedding colours for a cohesive look.


14. Go big

Don’t shrink from sizeable props and feature trees in your marquee. Mimicking the motif in this wedding marquee décor was the swathes of tree-painted fabric around its walls.


15. Eco-friendly ease

These palm-leaf biodegradable plates are strong, convenient and eco-friendly! What’s not to love? They also look great with wooden cutlery for minimum clean-up time… disposable tableware doesn’t get better than this.


16. Savory snacks

Photography by Ed Peers

Dessert tables have had their time, now move over for the savory snacks – this selection of pies, cheese, fruit and breadsticks make an equally mouth-watering presentation for couples lacking a sweet tooth.


17. Bigger isn’t always better

There’s no in-between with table flower arrangements; go high enough for guests to view each other under them, or low, like this pretty arrangement.

When decorations turn practical – this mantel arrangement has been cleverly worked as a table plan, ensuring guests fully appreciate its splendour with closer inspection.


19. Decorating Transport – trailing stars

20. Lavender Confetti, on silver platter

Create a pick-a-mix confetti table with fresh flowers, dried petals and lavender.


21. Aisle décor

Jam jars filled with flowers can make a simple but effective aisle decoration. If there isn’t a chair to hang it from, try placing on the floor.


22. Place setting

Photography by Xavier Navarro

To complement this natural settings, the theme and scheme for the day mixed a soft palette of blush pink, olive green, pale blue, silver and white that was then mirrored across the flowers, decorations, maids looks and table-tops.


23. Chair décor

Photography by Xavier Navarro

Paper projects can be a cost-effective alternative to flowers, and this wedding saw the bride and groom’s chairs decorated with the star motif that ran throughout their day, strung on garlands in varied sizes, and mixed heights.


24 Bold accessories

Flamingos and gold painted pineapples make a riotous mix of rustic meets fun modern details. Gorgeous tropical inspired flowers, including native Australian flowers, sat in painted and crush glitter jam jars for eye-popping, bright and bold displays. A wall of hanging palm leaves complete the bold and bright tropical look.

25. Creative Seating Plan

Seating plans give the rare opportunity for unbridled creativity, inspired by your wedding theme. In this case, a tropical theme led to this original arrangement – one your guests will never forget!
