A Great British wedding theme

Last updated:

Could there be anything more sweet than a Great British wedding theme?! Whether you were born and bred here, or have simply fallen in love with a GB theme, here are a few ideas to spark inspiration.

Afternoon tea

Perfect for a garden wedding, a luxurious spread of delicate finger food would be an adorable replacement for traditional canapes. You could even ramp it up to a full scale feast for a lighter wedding breakfast. Or how about a scone wedding cake?!

Red, white and blue

Well what other colour palette could you use?! A mixture of bright pops of colour is such a fun combination, and the white is just the perfect wedding tone!

Keep it sweet

Traditional seaside fare would be a fun idea for a sweet table, especially if you’re getting married in a seaside town. You can even get the sticks of rock personalised!

An English country garden

The perfect venue – a grand old English house, steeped in history and with a stunning traditional garden. Even better if they have a kitchen garden which can be foraged for the wedding breakfast food. You can’t get much more local than that!

All the fun of the fair

Roll a fairground into town for some extravagant entertainment! Carousels, swingboats and dodgems will let your guests relive their great British childhoods.
