What You NEED to Know About Having an Intimate Wedding

Dreaming of a wedding filled with love, laughter, and just your nearest and dearest? An intimate wedding, with a smaller guest list and shorter timeframe, might be the perfect way to celebrate your commitment.

Why Choose Intimate?

The beauty of an intimate wedding lies in its focus on meaningful connections. You can spend quality time with each guest, creating a warm and personal atmosphere. Plus, it allows you to personalize the experience, tailoring elements to your desires and budget.

Micro Wedding Trends for 2024 in the UK:

  • Unique Venues: Think beyond the traditional hotel ballroom. Consider intimate gardens, historical mansions, art galleries, or even private dining rooms in restaurants for a truly special setting.
  • Experiential Elements: Instead of a sit-down dinner, incorporate interactive activities like cocktail making classes, wine tastings, or live music performances.
  • Sustainable Focus: Eco-conscious couples are opting for locally sourced food, recycled decor, and digital invitations to minimize their environmental impact.

Planning Tips for Your Perfect Day:

  1. Guest List: Be intentional! This is your chance to celebrate with the people who truly matter, fostering a deeper connection.
  2. Set the Tone: Determine the formality level – a garden party, rooftop brunch, or evening cocktail reception, each offers a unique character.
  3. Prioritize Experiences: Focus on activities that create lasting memories, like a personalized ceremony reading or a photo scavenger hunt.
  4. Embrace Personalization: From DIY decor to custom cocktails, incorporate elements that reflect your personalities and love story.
  5. Capture the Moments: Hire a photographer and videographer to document your special day, even for a shorter celebration.


  • Communication is key: Discuss expectations and budget openly with your partner and families.
  • Be flexible: Embrace the unexpected and relax – your love story is the true focus.

With careful planning and a focus on what truly matters, your intimate wedding can be a day filled with love, joy, and memories that will last a lifetime.
