We’re kicking off the new year with a reflection of our most beautiful wedding ceremonies of 2018!

Last year we saw ceremony styles to die for, new arbour shapes, natural designs, signing tables to swoon over and arch ways that enhance the beautiful landscape that surrounds the Byron Bay region.

Here’s some of our top ceremony styles from the past year…

Triangular Take Over  

A popular trend in 2018 was triangular wedding arbours.
Load them with Pampas and natural florals, they can create an outstanding yet simplistic backdrop.

Tipi Arbours

Our natural tipi arbors were a huge hit in 2018 as they make the perfect boho ceremony statement. They’re easy to style, always create a wow factor and they look very dreamy in wedding photos. Style with florals, add draping fabrics or enjoy an evening ceremony under the stars with dazzling fairy lights. We’re excited to try out some new designs on our tipi arbours this year. Here’s a few of our top tipis...

Here we’ve used neutral draping fabric on our whitewash structure matched with our white bentwood chairs to create a classic romantic look at Byron View Farm.

Feature Florals

Putting structures aside, we’ve seen breathtaking floral statements taking the limelight in ceremony styling. Pampas Grass being one of the trending botanicals of the year alongside dried palms mixed with dusky florals.

Picturesque Panels

We are so in love with our Lattice Arbours and how many variations there are to styling them. From rich minimal florals to oodles of pampas and palms,  they’re way up there in our top ceremony styling props of the year and we cannot wait to see 2019 floral trends cover them in more loveliness.

Circular Statements

One of the best ways to frame the wonderful view over Byron Bay is to place it in a dreamy round hoop covered in dried botanicals or florals.
