Think fairy lights, candles in coloured jam jars, and beautifully laid banquet tables. The more magical your venue, the better. Of course, the exterior should also look amazing; that’s why a castle could be a good venue option. However, you can easily do up the outside of any venue to give it that magical feel. It’s just a case of getting creative and finding the right inspiration.

Focus on the little things
As with any wedding, when it comes to creating the perfect atmosphere, it’s all about the little things. The venue might be important, but it’s the small details that pull the whole celebration together. That’s why it’s so important to make time to focus on the little things. For example, instead of toasting with champagne, opt to serve Alice in Wonderland style cocktails. Don’t serve a simple wedding cake, go for something a little more lavish. For a magical twist of wedding favours, give each guest a pot of magic fairy dust – aka glitter. Instead of having a regular sit-down meal, opt to organise an Alice in Wonderland style Mad Hatter’s Tea.
