Moodboard: weddings are coming – how does a Game of Thrones theme sound?

Nobody likes the thought of having their wedding judged, and this can have a big impact on the look of the day. Let’s face it: your #nofilter auntie or the colleagues that didn’t make the guest list cut wouldn’t have too much to say about a tasteful ivory and blush theme. But why should you play it safe on the most important day of your lives if it doesn’t reflect your personalities?

If you’ve been known to jump to your feet and start using cutlery as faux swords when you hear the opening bars of the Game of Thrones theme song, there’s no better time to start planning a Westeros-tinged wedding. The HBO series is back next month and we predict it will be bursting with as much wedding inspo as ever. From Khaleesi’s on-trend plunge neckline gowns and all-black ensembles for the (grooms)men of the Night’s Watch, the sartorial side of things will be a doddle. And don’t worry about your venue clashing with the rustic styling: Scotland’s wealth of Medieval castles are the perfect fit for map tableplans, nature-influenced crowns and tables groaning with foliage-wrapped branches and flickering candles.
