From this month’s special issue 164, we share 3 top trends in reception style from Susie Evans from Co-ordination Catering Hire. She reveals the wedding themes that have taken off this year and why they’re making such an impact!


Weddings this year are set to really embrace the natural world, using rustic French country touches to create a look that is soft and simple, elegant, warm and romantic. Dark wood cross back chairs complement this reception theme perfectly because the natural materials suggest a connection with the outdoors. These can be enhanced using a simple foliage arrangement or simply left plain in all their rustic beauty. The colours of the seat pads can also be left changed to a moss green to accentuate the outdoor feel.


Take a seat, chair covers. Relaxed seating arrangements are becoming ever more popular, especially rustic trestle tables and benches. If you love the rustic look but want to be a little more formal, replace the benches with stylish chiavari chairs or the new style cross back chair for Californian style!


Look at using a palette of colours rather than one set colour theme. Our favourite is a timeless base of muted grey or light blue with accents of colour. Choosing foliage and flowers in a range of shades can also enhance the contemporary summer wedding feel.

You can read more tips for top trends and see more of this gorgeous shoot on page 151 of issue 164!
