Creating the Perfect Fairytale Wedding

Haven’t we all dreamed of a fairytale wedding? Many of you may have even taken a little (or a lot!) of inspiration from fairytales and Disney films from your childhood. Perhaps you want to have a fairytale themed wedding, or maybe you just want to add a few magical elements to your big day to make it even more special.

So, if you’re wondering how to do this, look no further! Here are our tips for creating the perfect fairytale wedding.


The Little Mermaid

Ariel – the first mermaid to spark the love of a generation! The Little Mermaid has served as the inspiration for countless weddings, and it’s not hard to see why. The addition of touches such as seashells and nautical items can help to really bring your theme to life.

And, for the lighting, who can forget the ultimate romantic scene when Ariel and Prince Eric are serenaded by Sebastian the crab and friends with the song Kiss the Girl, as fireflies light up the sky. With this scene in mind, a fairy light canopy would make the perfect addition to your fairytale wedding!


Tangled tells the story of Rapunzel – a princess unaware of her identity, locked in a tower and looking for adventure! This exciting tale makes the perfect theme for a romantic and magical wedding. If you’ve seen the Disney film, you will know that lights are important to the story as the princess watches the ‘floating lights’ take to the sky each year on her birthday.

Recreating this film can be relatively simple with the use of plenty of flowers and wedding lanterns.


Frozen captured the hearts of millions of children and adults alike with its catchy songs, exciting story and loveable characters. So, with so many magical elements, this fairytale is sure to make a perfect inspiration for your wedding theme.

Blue and silver are obviously important colours if you want your guests to feel as though they have just stepped into the spectacular kingdom of Arendelle, and you can really make the theme come to life with our star cloths. These fabulous lights bring a magical feeling, and even look as though glistening snowflakes are falling.
