Things to make you go ‘I do’.

Creative wedding ceremony backdrops

After some ceremony backdrop inspo? Good – because here you are.

The ceremony spot is one of the first things we gravitate toward when we’re checking out wedding photos. It’s the place where you get to say some really important words and seal the deal with your other half. You have your first married kiss here and you get a load of pics taken here. So it’s worth a bit of thought, and perhaps some dressing up.

Of course, an amazing tree or natural setting is hard to beat, but we love seeing couples think outside the square and come up with some creative settings to say ‘I do’ at.

Check out some of our fave ceremony backdrops we’ve come across to date.
