Inspired by sacred geometry, the time honoured symbolism and continuity of a ring, we’re looking to unexpected circular spaces and seating arrangements for a unique take on ceremony styling and breathtaking settings.
Steeped in ritual and tradition, inexplicable naturally occurring circles of flowers in a field (folkloric fairy-rings), to unearthed amphitheatres in far flung locations, engineering feats so spectacular and pre-historic the mind wonders at the magic of their still standing. Concentric circles of tiered gardens, thought to mirror the rays of the sun, their elliptical shapes the sites of ancient rituals. Or the simple marking with stones in sand, so perfect for a beach or desert destination, defining the ceremonial space against a sea of white.
Inspired by the pagan lore of ‘casting a circle’, consider this a sacred space in which to perform a sacred ritual, the ceremonial act of committing yourself to one another, surrounded by all those you love most, in unbroken continuity. (If space is limited, consider a half moon, or semi circle which feels more inclusive and less structured than straight rows).
