For so many couples the seating plan is one of the most stressful parts of their wedding planning journey. With dozens of guests to accommodate, trying to ‘please’ everyone is
almost impossible, and for many, the traditional top table seating plan does not work for them and their families. With stepparents, more than one best man, family feuds and possibly the consideration of children, couples are increasingly seeking an alternative. For some couples the sweet heart table can be an ideal option for them if they don’t wish to be center staged on a long top table, but instead can be seated together in the midst of the room so they feel confided and confident.
One of the most common points couples highlight after their wedding day is that they didn’t get to share special intimate moments with one another as much as they’d wished, and although the day center around them as a couple they were pulled in so many differing directions, while socializing with guests, that they missed out on taking time to celebrate their moment together. By having a sweetheart table, it provides an opportunity so the couple can spend those special moments together over dinner, while also being in the present with family and friends.
The sweetheart table is one of my favorite ‘go-to’ golden tips as it means separating yourselves from the situation and avoiding any awkward decisions on who does and doesn’t sit on the top
table with you.
The shoot, held at Leadenham Estate, aimed to showcase the beauty and sweet solitude a sweet heart table can present to couples, whilst remaining central to the wedding seating plan. The flowers truly added to the drama of this shoot, with the large display sitting central hanging off the table frontage providing a view point whilst not distracting from the couple with anything too large and difficult to ‘see through’.
