Circular Arch Backdrop- A ‘wedding’ day in a life

Circular arches are the most perfect backdrop to any wedding ceremony or event and can be used in a variety of ways

< Back To Blogs

Our Circular Arches, or Moongates as they are often called remain some of our most popular items to hire. These lightweight metal structures are often festooned with floral arrangements.

Our moongates are the most perfect backdrop to any wedding ceremony or event and can be used in a variety of ways.

Firstly ‘the ceremony backdrop’. This is such a popular request from our couples and you can see why! it really does create the most magical photos for you to treasure for years to come. Set the moongate at the end of your aisle where you plan to get married and say your vows, perhaps this is outside in a a beautiful garden, in a woodland, inside a tipi or barn, it doesn’t really matter where as the circular archway will create a true wow factor when all your guests arrive.

Alternatively why not place the moongate behind the top table, again this really frames you as a couple during the wedding breakfast, creating a focal point of the top table and making for fantastic photos during the wedding breakfast and speeches.

Some couples like to create a more intimate seating area with the circular arch. Add some peacock chairs or other furniture, rugs and side tables. This gives your guests a fun area to sit and relax, take photos together and sip champagne.

Lastly once the party starts it really is a fun prop for your guests to enjoy, taking selfies or group pictures. Everyone loves that Instagram background and why stand in front of a plain wall when you can use our one of our beautiful moongates!

As our moongates are lightweight we encourage moving it as much as possible, making these multi-functional props that can be used in a number of ways throughout your day. Your photographer will have plenty of ideas on how to get the most from the moongate so pick their brains on where and how to place it around the venue.

I hope that has given you all some inspiration on how to use this prop to style your wedding day. It really is one of our favourite items. Head over to our large prop section of the website to see the available moongate styles we stock.

We do also offer a fully bespoke design service so if the ones we have already just aren’t quite right please get in touch to discuss how we could make it to your requirements.

Keep your eyes peeled for next season’s styles launching on our website and social channels very soon
