Intimate Romantic Valentine’s day Wedding inspiration

Valentine’s day is fast approaching ( it that time already?), and our thoughts naturally turn to romance and what to do for our beloved. Getting married at this time of year is such a good way to showcase your love for one another. It is a time when romance is in the air and that has to play a central theme in your wedding decor, right?

February is still a cold month in the UK and it’s a good excuse to have a cosy intimate romantic wedding ceremony and reception indoors. I have curated some of the best ideas for a beautiful intimate wedding reception for this special Valentine’s season. From classic clean lines to minimalistic decor to ultra-elegance, there is something to inspire your own intimate celebration at this time of the year.

Blush Pink

Nothing quite says romantic as the blush pink undertones of an early spring wedding. This classic combination never goes out of style. Think the lightest of blush pink roses paired with complementary colours of creams, lavenders, and light greens to give that romantic airy feel. Add in soft candle lights and very light pink up lighters to give your room a warm enchanted feel.

Carry the concept through to your bridesmaid dresses, accessories, and boutonnières for the groomsmen. Even your makeup can have the understated blush English rose effect which gives you that added glow and work so well with this theme.

Classic Gold

Gold is one trend that has captured the wedding world and is really here to stay. Incorporate the really light yellow gold (not the deep rich yellow gold but the 9 to 18 carat type shade of gold) against the backdrop of whites and creams to create a minimalistic dreamy, romantic feel to your day. Your guests walking into that calm oasis will instantly feel at ease which all helps to create that memorable experience for both you and them.

Ever heard that phrase, ‘say it with candlelight’? The valentine’s season is the perfect time to go all out with this and works so well for an evening reception. Enhancing your intimate wedding with candlelight is a surefire way to add some romance to your decor and day. From the ultra elegant to the simplest of venues, incorporating candlelight into your decor gives it that instant feeling of intimacy and romance and sets the tone for a romantic celebration.

And ways to incorporate these abound, from tea lights in burnished tea light holders to translucent crystal candle holders to brass and gold candlesticks, the options abound. A good starting guide is to go for ones that compliment your overall wedding decor.

I hope these have provided you with some inspiration for your own intimate and romantic wedding decor this Valentine’s season. Valentine’s day and the periods leading up to and after it are known mainly for deep reds, candlelights and golds (and let’s not forget chocolates!) I have presented alternative spins on them so you can try something different with your decor but still bring out the romance aspect that you want to incorporate into your day.

If you need help putting together a cohesive style for the overall look and feel of your day, then contact me, I’d be happy to help you streamline your ideas and figure out what look best suits you.

Happy Planning!
