Ideas for same-sex weddings

Here at Delamere Manor, we’re all about the love so if you’re looking for a luxury wedding venue in Cheshire to hold your same sex wedding look no further! 

From ceremony ideas to props, make sure your wedding reflects your personal style with these LGBTQ+ wedding ideas courtesy of the Delamere Manor Wedding Team.

Your ceremony

An LGBTQ+ wedding means you can throw out the rule book and personalise every aspect of your big day including your ceremony. You could take it in turns to walk down the aisle or alternatively walk down the aisle together arm in arm – a memorable moment and a beautiful shot for your photographer to capture! Fathers are still a popular choice for lesbian couples to be walked down the aisle by and mothers for gay couples. Another option is to ask a close friend or family member to accompany you down the aisle, with the emphasis less on being ‘given away’ and more as a supportive role on your big day. Traditionally the bride stands on the left and the groom on the right so it’s up to you and your partner to decide who stands where! Your guests can also sit wherever they like too and we love these ‘Pick a seat not a side, either way it’s for a bride’ signs for lesbian weddings available via Etsy. 

Pride-inspired Props

Bring a bit of Pride to proceedings with rainbow-inspired props. Multi-coloured smoke bombs and balloons look great in photos or incorporate colour blocking into your wedding outfits with rainbow-soled shoes, socks or cufflinks. The MR & MR and MRS & MRS giant illuminated letters available from our trusted supplier Love Lights The Way are also a great addition to your reception. 

Wedding cake

You could opt for a rainbow layered cake or if you’re thinking of something more traditional there are lots of cake toppers to personalise your cake from these wooden same sex figurines available on Etsy to this elegant Love Wins’ cake topper.
