Starry Starry Night – Magical Wedding Lighting Inspiration

Dancing under the stars with the one you love, is there anything more magical? Well, sure, there might be – but there’s just something so timelessly romantic and yes, magical, about having your first dance as newly weds outdoors. Now, close your eyes and picture that moment in total darkness…it’s not quite the same is it? Cue fairy lights, naked bulbs, chandeliers, lanterns – there’s something out there for each & every style of wedding.

Our midnight blue & white ‘Starry Starry Night’ stationery suite was inspired by the concept of a laid-back outdoor wedding under the stars & under strings of fairy lights, which always add a touchy of whimsy to a setting. The suite includes a Save the Date and Invitation (both available in digital form too) as well as star-shaped tags all ready to order from our Shop.


If you’re still not sold, here are a few more surreal images for inspiration. Used as a backdrop for just about anything (think ceremony, photobooth, head table), strung over head, in mason jars, in trees, in centre pieces – there’s always space for a little extra magic.
