Top online wedding magazine The Knot has recently released its annual Wedding Trends Report, reporting what has been popular in 2014 as well as predictions for what will be on trend in 2015. The overarching themes are a mix of the old and new, with couples embracing both traditions as well as new ideas and technology.
A key trend has been identified for wedding photography in particular, with the use of drones and GoPros seeing a massive growth. Drones are perfect for aerial shots, capturing from above the entire ceremony, as well as the beautiful scenery stretching out from the venue. GoPros are also excellent for offering glimpses of the wedding as if seen through a person’s eyes.
Another way in which the use of technology will be growing in weddings and in wedding planning is through apps, which will help you to plan the wedding stage by stage, and can even help your guests get to and from the wedding.
Food is also another item which is predicted to take on a more prominent role in 2015 weddings. It’s expected to be more extravagant than ever, with centrepieces filled with food, and stations allowing guests to mix it up to make their own drinks.
In terms of colour schemes, the Pantone Colour of the Year, Marsala, is sure to make an appearance, with its rich, wine-inspired tones perfect for weddings all year round. Paired with a dusty blue, it’s perfect for creating a romantic feel, while a pairing with rose gold makes for a glamourous vibe.
These are all fantastic ideas for your dream wedding at Athelhampton House and Gardens, one of the finest country house wedding venues Dorset has to offer, and are ideal for adding a modern twist to a historic venue.
