Consider the Season

One of the easiest ways to choose a wedding theme is to look at the time of year you'll be getting married. The Gamekeeper's Inn is a beautiful wedding venue no matter the season, but each season brings with it unique design opportunities. For example, if you're planning to get married in the spring, light pastel colours like light blue will always look elegant when you look back on your wedding photos, or if you’re looking to go a little more bold, try mixing a few different colours together, like sage and blush. Alternatively, if you're getting married in autumn, consider a rustic theme that incorporates warm colours and natural elements, look at options of bringing nature in with dark evergreen colours and wooden textures.

Think About Your Personal Style

Your wedding should be a reflection of you and your partner's personalities and interests. Think about the things you both love and use that as inspiration for your wedding theme. If you're both avid travellers, a wanderlust theme could be perfect. Or, if you're both music lovers, a rock and roll or jazz theme could be a great choice. It doesn’t necessarily have to be an obvious theme, maybe it can inspire your table names, your wedding menu, favours and wedding entertainment.

Use Your Venue As Inspiration

The Gamekeeper's Inn has a lot of unique features that can inspire your wedding theme. For example, the large wooden beams and natural setting could inspire a vintage theme. Alternatively, the cosy fire could inspire a romantic and whimsical theme. Speaking to our wedding planner Angela is a great place to start if you're struggling to envisage what you want your wedding to look like.

Choose A Colour Palette

Another way to choose a wedding theme is to start with a colour palette. The colours you choose will set the tone for your entire wedding and guide the rest of your design choices, from wedding invitations to table centrepieces. If you're not sure where to start, take a look at the colours of the venue itself. The Gamekeeper's Inn boasts beautiful natural wood and stone features that could inspire a neutral or earthy colour palette. Or you could pick something bright and colourful to contrast with your neutral venue and really make your theme colours pop.
