So, when thinking about my hypothetical wedding, I always think about the 'location' (I hope my future partner doesn't run for the hills after sneakily stalking my photography blog...)
Its so so hard in the UK to plan a wedding based on just 'what you want', as you have to think about the weather!! and theres nothing harder than trying to chose whether you risk an outdoors wedding/ reception, or settle for the guaranteed dry option! So luckily in the UK, so many companies are coming up with crafty ways of making 'marquees' cool.
I personally have thought about this at great lengths haha, as I would love a greenhouse style wedding, however I have found there are limited locations across the country that have generous sized greenhouse style buildings, which don't cost the earth... So I thought, maybe renting a completely transparent marquee and popping it up under the trees would make it feel like we're amongst the nature (My friends have always said I'm a bit of a tree hugger)... So heres some ideas I came across whilst researching my hypothetical Wedding!!!
