Here at Hawaiian Shirt Photography we love taking photos and video of those special days. We work with couples to ensure that every part of their wedding day is captured, from the vows, to the guests to of course the venue.

The venue is an important part of the wedding day, it is the place that the celebration is set in and it is where all the memories will be made. This means that you will want to ensure that it looks its best. One way that many couples decide to dress up their venue is with flowers.

But where should you put your floral choices if you want to make sure that your venue looks just perfect!

The Entrances

The entrance to your venue is the first place that your guests will see and therefore it is important when you want to make an impression. Not only this, but it also the place that many photos will be based meaning that it is important to ensure that it looks its best.

The Staircase

Do you really want to make sure that your venue has the real wow factor? Want to make sure that every inch looks gorgeous? Why not arrange for flowers to head down your staircase? This is particularly true if it is a staircase that will be used frequently, or if it is the one that leads up to the bridal suite. Depending on the size of the stairs you can go full on with a large garland, of if you want to create a more subtle effect, just opt for a few separate arrangements instead.

The Tables

This is one of the most obvious ones, but every wedding reception should have tables with centrepieces. Centrepieces are definitely changing of late, but this doesn’t mean that people are not still opting for flowers over other choices. It might just mean that flowers are teamed with other options such as candelabras or birdcages.

The Ceiling

You are going to hope that your guests don’t spend the entire day looking up at the ceiling, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t make it look good! Hanging things from the ceiling is great for creating an atmosphere and really bringing a venue to life. A great way to decorate a ceiling is with a hanging flower ball. Not only are these dramatic, but you can also use fragrant flowers that will release a lovely smell into the venue too!

The thing to remember is that every floral arrangement that you have in your venue should follow a theme. This will ensure that the entire place flows and that it looks brilliant, not only in the photography and videography, but also to your guests too.
