Our Favourite Wedding Centrepiece Ideas
Here at Gaynes Park, we absolutely love seeing how our couples personalise their big day. In the Mill Barn, fabulous wedding centrepieces add the wow factor to tables and they really bring your wedding theme to life. To help you decide on these important details, we’ve gathered together our favourite wedding centrepiece ideas for you.
Keep It Classic With Fabulous Florals
Florals are still super popular for centrepieces and with good reason. They look beautiful and they create a wonderful atmosphere on such a special occasion. The first thing to decide is whether you want low or tall arrangements. Tall centrepieces really make a statement in the Mill Barn, but you need to make sure that they don’t make it difficult for guests to chat. Low arrangements create a real feeling of intimacy, but you need make sure that they’re big enough to still have impact.
Jessica and Jason’s wedding at Gaynes Park featured a mix in height of lovely floral table centrepieces and the result was stunning. The tall arrangements sat on top of towering glass vases while the top table was decorated with lots of low vases, full of beautiful florals.
Sophie and Beth opted for low table centres and their choice of colours and the flowers themselves created such a romantic air. We loved the elegant wedding flowers and the colour palette was just stunning.
Simple centrepieces with rustic elegance also work perfectly with the interior of the Mill Barn. Think jam jars and wild flowers.
Make It Modern
If you’re leaning more towards cool and contemporary rather than traditional and rustic for your wedding breakfast, modern table centrepieces are a must. Opt for decorations that have clean lines and simple colour schemes to bring a modern twist to our beautiful barn.
Unusual containers for your wedding flowers will bring your tables bang up to date. Consider geometric shapes, metallic touches and succulents instead of wedding flowers.
Definitely think beyond florals. We love this wedding that worked with lots of candlelight and the season to create a dramatic romantic yet modern look.
Definitely think beyond just flowers and work with lots of greenery to create a modern look. Foliage has been popular for a while now but ferns are the latest trend that you need to know about. These are great for elegant country weddings.
Fun And Alternative Ideas
Of course, this is your wedding day so you can include absolutely anything you like in your table centres! If you’re going to do something different, do it wholeheartedly and make it really obvious what the look or theme is that you’re going for.
Stevie and Kit’s glorious summer wedding featured the most wonderful table centres. We loved the props that they added to their traditional floral centrepieces. This is such a great idea and can work with any theme.
Hannah and Tommy really went all out on their wedding centrepieces and the effect was amazing! Moss, succulents, ferns, flowers in glass containers, candles and even little models of animals and trees created such a superb look that totally worked with the style of their day. Don’t ever be afraid to do something different if it suits your wedding and your own personal style!
If you love books, baking, gin, music, old movies or even a certain sport, there are ways that you can include your passion in your table centres. Fill old bottles with flowers, stack books in piles to give height, include props and be sure to add little details.
We also love seeing couples use the seasons to inspire their wedding decorations, perfect for a countryside venue such as Gaynes Park! Claire and Steve filled their wedding with autumnal touches and even used pumpkins for their centrepieces! The fallen leaves, bare branches, and pinecones finished their tables to perfection.
