Whatever happened to sentimental keepsakes?

Half-heartedly ‘Liking’ a picture on Facebook just isn’t the same as getting a copy of said photo and putting it in a frame, is it? Flicking through a gallery on social media doesn’t compare to sitting shoulder to shoulder, flicking through the photos you’ve just picked up from Supasnaps, laughing at the memories you froze in time. The ultimate personalised wedding gifts were thoughtful albums, stuffed with special photos and keepsakes from the big day.

A beautiful wedding arch you can keep forever

Saying vows under a wedding arch is a centuries old tradition full of romantic meaning, symbolising the home that the couple will build together. For weddings held outdoors, arches and arbours also provide a beautiful focal point for the ceremony, and an attractive backdrop for pictures.

If you are planning an outdoor wedding, there are many hire companies around the country from whom you can rent an arch for the day. A much more special alternative, though, would be to be able to take your very own wedding arch home with you, to keep in your garden as a constant reminder of your big day. You could even grow your own wedding flowers over it, seeing them grow larger and stronger with every anniversary that passes.

Having a wedding arch is the perfect way to create a beautiful focal feature on your wedding day. No matter what your wedding style, a wedding arch is versatile, unique and will look fantastic at your venue.

You can use a wedding arch for many aspects of your wedding day, from a ceremony backdrop or an archway to get married underneath to an entrance decoration or a spot where all of your guests can have their photo taken.
