Autumnal, Vegan, Treehouse Wedding by Candlelight

The Alnwick Treehouse is a one-of-a-kind venue in The Alnwick Garden, Northumberland.

The Lord of the Rings inspiration comes from the elvish classicism of the reception decor and Rett’s purple hooded cloak that she wore during the ceremony. “We tried not to be too overt with our references,” said Rett, “so that it didn’t feel like cosplay or theme park.”
