Perfect Peacock Paradise

Tomorrow will be another beautiful outdoor wedding here at Alderwood Weddings, and we are just delighted. We put a lot of work into the venue all year round to make sure that everything is perfect for each couple's big day. I will definitely be taking advantage of the beautiful weather this weekend to take some new pictures!

In the spirit of the event this weekend, I thought it would be fun to post one idea that we would love to see put together: A Peacock Theme wedding. With our lush trees and vibrant gardens as your backdrop, the deep hues of the peacock feather would create a wedding paradise.

Peacock Theme

Here are some pictures we found for inspiration!

The simple elegance of these invitations is really eye-catching.

 Peacock feathers certainly have sexy potential.

 Cakes can range from the simplistic...                           to the dramatic!

There really is no end to the possibilities with this colour scheme, and we could compliment the theme so well with our own added touches to the decor, food, and more. I hope we get the chance to work with a peacock theme soon. :)
