Love film? Then why not reflect your love of the movies by choosing a classic movie inspired wedding?
If you’re looking for an unusual venue for a movie-themed wedding, there can surely be only one option: ask your local independent cinema if they have a wedding license. We’re thinking along the lines of a beautiful arthouse cinema to form the perfect backdrop to your big day.
Hold the wedding ceremony in the movie theatre, with the happy couple taking their vows on stage, watched by guests sitting comfortably in the audience.
Setting the Scene
For classic cinema style there can only be one colour theme for your venue – black and white is an elegant choice that’s also bang on trend. Standing a pair of gold Oscar statues at the entrance will help to set the mood.
Inside, choose crisp white tablecloths and black chair covers for an understated elegance that won’t detract from your decorations.
Add Your Favourite Films
For the ultimate movie style, hang some screens around the walls of your venue and arrange for some classic film reels to show scenes from your favourite pictures while you’re enjoying the wedding meal.
In between screens, hang film posters around the walls, and decorate the tables with old film reels filled with flowers – classic red roses would work perfectly here – and clapperboards with classic move lines written on them, such as ‘We’ll always have Paris,’ ‘I’ll have what she’s having,’ ‘You had me at hello,’ and ‘Nobody puts baby in the corner.’
A popular addition to many weddings is a themed photo booth for the bride and groom and their guests to take photos – of course, yours can be set to classic Hollywood style.
And for the icing on the cake, literally, decorate your wedding cake with film rolls, which can include pictures of the bride and groom, mixed in with scenes from your favourite films.
