12 Alternative Altars
Many of you that have had a church wedding will be aware of the traditional altar but with outdoor weddings becoming evermore popular it is now possible to experiment a little with the altar in order to make it fit with the style of your day…

♥ We also thought what an amzing idea it would be to build your own altar that can be easily transferred to the garden in your new marital home as a reminder of your special day
♥ Flowers and foliage from your own garden can be a perfect touch when creating a handmade altar
♥ Brighten your altar up with a colourful flower such as this sunflower covered altar
♥ Trees such as these birch are simple yet extremely effective in making an all white room become a dramatic backdrop for a ceremony
♥ The idea of creating a completely new altar had us in a tiz, these doors carry a wonderful metaphor of opening up a new chapter in a couples life
♥ Be bold and create an arch adorned with handmade fabric flowers
♥ Who said an altar had to be in the shape of an arch?
♥ Odd shaped tree branches can provide the perfect frame for an altar embellished in lace and other beautiful fabrics
♥ We earlier mentioned handmade fabric flowers are a perfect way of personalising your arch but how about making handmade paper pom poms …
