This season’s most stunning wedding arbor ideas

Whether you’re tying the knot outdoors under The Portico – complete with country house backdrop – or you’re looking for the perfect frame for those outdoor shots, including an arbor in your wedding décor is a great move.

For those of you not familiar with the wedding arbor, Del Cabo Weddings offers a rather succinct description:

“Typically the arbor is an arch-shaped structure covered in vines, shells, branches, twigs, flowers or fabric and is sometimes called a ‘wedding arch’. An arbor typically incorporates a trellis, with the design often being arched, to create a ‘tunnel’ for plants to cover.”

Just like your table centrepieces, your arbor can add a real wow factor to your wedding décor. It also provides a picture-perfect place to pose up a storm with your new husband or wife. Wedding arbors come in all shapes, sizes and styles, which makes creating your own arbor design particularly tricky.

We’re here to inspire you with this season’s most stunning wedding arbor looks.

The English rose

All too often on the wedding scene, the simplest themes are the most sophisticated, and they’re far from boring or basic. Embracing a neutral palette and choosing an arbor made from lots of garden roses and wild grasses can really let the beauty of your outdoor, English countryside setting shine through.

Tropical botanicals

Looking for something a little more exotic? An arbor brimming with tropical botanicals will provide that lush green foliage and add a poignant pop of colour, interest and texture to the classic arbor. You could even take inspiration for your arbor from your honeymoon destination!

Beautiful blossoms

Spring may be over, but the beauty of the blossom is truly timeless. We love blossoms so much that we now have our very own adorable blossom trees, which you can use to decorate your ceremony space right here at Bourton Hall or one of the other venues in the Country House Weddings collection.

Make even more of an impact by teaming our blossom trees with a stunning blossom arbor. As you’ll discover, blossom arbors don’t just look great in spring. They provide a spectacular backdrop whatever the season or wedding trends.

Unforgettably flower-less

Not every arbor design incorporates flowers, in fact, this season’s most cool and contemporary arbor designs don’t have a bloom in sight. Use dried foliage such as pampas grass and palm leaves to create a memorable, modern look for your outdoor ceremony.

For couples wanting a more rustic finish, a willow branch arbor is a striking option. It can also be interwoven with flowers to ensure the very best of both worlds.

Lush, layered and lovely

From a pared-back look to the season’s most eye-catching, a lush arbor that’s heavy on foliage and florals is certain to make a very big impression on your wedding guests. It can be designed with your wider wedding colour palette in mind and uses layers upon layers of flowers and greenery to deliver a dramatic display of texture at the end of the aisle.
