What could be more romantic than a Shakespeare inspired midsummer wedding at The Swan at The Globe Theatre in London? During these difficult times when all weddings are on pause, we’ve been reminiscing about some of the most creative weddings and venues we been lucky enough to work on starting with The Globe Theatre, London
Evoking the magic of Shakespeare, Kristin and Christopher wanted to recreate the passion and joyfulness of A Midsummer Night’s Dream for their intimate wedding reception. With views of The Globe Theatre itself and a balcony backdrop of the river Thames, what could be more perfect for a ‘dream like’ wedding.
Working closely with their florist (Hybrid Flowers) we created a rich, striking sugar flower centrepiece surrounded by delicious fresh fruit and fresh flowers. A real feast for your eyes…you could almost imagine Titania and Oberon’s presence!
For an authentic Shakespeare inspired wedding there was no suggestion that Kristin and Christopher’s wedding cake would be displayed on a conventional round table in the corner of the room. It’s fantastic when a couple really considers where they believe their wedding cake must be displayed, rather than simply being told where the cake is traditionally placed – statement, centre of attention all the way! Your wedding cake is likely to be the most expensive cake that you’ll ever invest in, so you want every one of your guests to see and appreciate your design.
The joy and decadence of A Midsummer Night’s Dream shone through their whole day with all of their personal touches.
It was such a pleasure to work at The Swan at The Globe and we cannot wait to deliver there again.
