Hypnotic, captivating and rhythmic all at once…the pull of water is magnetic and understood universally. Lending a unique magic to any celebration (celebrations already imbued with a euphoric energy), water acts as the most breathtaking backdrop, a natural stage that will shift colours and moods as the sun moves across the sky. A photographers dream and an enchanting experience for all guests, we're dreaming this month of waterside venues, worldwide.
Whether captivated by the quicksilver like, mirrored tranquilly of a perfectly calm lake or the dazzling backdrop of blue seas, select a reception setting that speaks to you personally, one of significance that you cannot wait to celebrate in! Each offering a wildly different in atmosphere, from secluded and serene to a more beach-shack festive vibe, water adds an almost intangible quality to any day.
Select styling reflective of your unique setting and theme (remembering less is always more, there's no need to bring in a veritable 'prop department' with such a stunning natural backdrop!). We love the classic elegance evoked by a lakeside setting (reminiscent of passages from The Great Gatsby) while an urban seaside venue can be fantastic for channeling a beach-club vibe (think palms, deck stripes, festoon lighting and sundown cocktails).
