Captivated by the quiet beauty found in spaces bleached of all colour, either by man or natures hand, the infinite light and tranquil enchantment of a landscape washed white, we're inspired by ceremonial spaces offering a mood of balance,simplification and purity, in which to exchange vows.
Much like the first page of a blank journal, a wedding marks the beginning of a new story, and offers a rare opportunity to pause, find stillness for a moment, feel present and to acknowledge the ancient rituals and beautiful ceremonial sequences, whatever your beliefs and traditions.
We love the idea of stripping away all but that is essential, creating a calm and timeless space, free from props, clutter, trends and fads - instead, finding beauty in surrounds of breathtaking sparsity. Ethereal, almost otherworldly spaces act as an antidote to everything that is over-styled in weddings, things that seek only to distract from the moment of exchanging vows and intentions. A cleansed palette creates a serene space and calm mood (for racing hearts), and keeps the focus on the bride and groom, and words exchanged.
Landscapes bleached pale, majestic cathedrals bathed in light, tiny chapels set amidst white desert sands and entire villages washed of colour...we have put together a selection of some of the most breathtakingly beautiful villages, cities, cathedrals and chapels offering a cleansed, white washed space in which to wed. We recommend viewing the physical space as pictures and information in regards to availability on church websites can be limited! Also consider naturally white landscapes - stretches of white sand dunes in warmer climes, or for a winter wedding, a snow blanketed space is spectacular.
