Love is in the air! Let’s take a look at some fabulous Valentine wedding ideas and how you can incorporate them into your Sandhole Oak Barn wedding.
Setting the Scene
Before you consider the details, think about your wedding style. You might decide to go all-out red or opt for a more delicate pink theme.
Red is an obvious colour choice for this style of wedding. It’s a bold colour so need only be used sparingly, perhaps in your flowers. Pink and more neutral tones also work well in a countryside setting.
The word ‘love’ should appear as much as possible on your day! How about some giant letters? You might even have illuminated letters on your dance floor.

A ‘love letter’ box is just the thing – a fun addition to your celebration. Why not ask guests if they would like to send Valentine messages to each other?
Fun balloons make great props for photos and don’t forget some heart-shaped sparklers.
All About Flowers
Flowers are the most obvious way to add colour, and red blooms are wonderfully romantic. It’s time to incorporate some red roses to your arrangements!
Roses are a lovely choice. Stay on trend by incorporating plenty of foliage, bringing the outside in. We love this heady combination of pink and red blooms.
Once again, pink and red combine to create a more delicate colour palette. You might even hang red roses from the ceiling – the Valentine equivalent to mistletoe!
These table arrangements are oh-so-pretty.
When it comes to dresses, the most important thing is to choose a style that you love. Consider the season, opting for a wrap or a sleeve, and perhaps add a hint of red or a love heart to your accessories.
While you might like to include red in your colour scheme, not every bride wants to wear a red dress. It does, however, make a perfect choice for bridesmaids.

Embracing winter style, we love this romantic bouquet with a faux fur stole to stay warm! You might even choose a dress with a red skirt.
Adopt 50s style with a tea-length dress and red shoes. Sometimes, the only accessory you need is a pair of fabulous shoes!
Cake, Glorious Cake
Your wedding cake gives you the opportunity to impart your wedding style.
We love this elegant, simple cake adorned with fresh flowers and a Cupid’s Arrow. Naked or semi-naked cakes are also perfect for a Valentine’s theme.
Add a little fun to your décor with this contemporary design or how about a hidden heart in the very ‘heart’ of your cake?!
Food, Favours and Sweet Treats
Add colour and Valentine style to your menu and, of course, send your guests home with a heart-shaped chocolate or two!
Pink fairy cakes with red sugar roses would be just the thing for your dessert table, and chocolate dipped cherries or strawberries add a touch of romance.
Don’t forget a romantic cocktail for your welcome drinks and evening party or of course Champagne, the most romantic of all.
Meringue kisses are a lovely addition, either to your dessert or as a favour and these chocolate brownie hearts say it all.
