Talk about wedding receptions! Here at Mango Studios, we are blessed to photograph one incredible wedding after another. Over the last 12 years we’ve been in the wedding industry, we’ve seen awe-inspiring weddings of all shapes and sizes. Hundreds of air balloons hanging from the ceiling or life-sized, golden elephant and zebra statues? Yep, we’ve photographed both those. We’ve even seen a wall made of fifty thousand (!) roses and thousands of cherry blossoms and peonies at a reception hall! Talk about filling your life with flowers. As they say, atmosphere is everything. I am so excited to share some of our favourite jaw-dropping and most beautiful wedding reception photos we’ve taken recently to get you inspired. I’m also including links to each wedding so you could take a look at more of the gorgeous details that definitely have a WOW factor.
From garden-like ceilings to life-sized tree centrepieces, here are my top 10 jaw-dropping wedding receptions we can’t stop talking about:
Real Peaches Infused Barn Wedding Reception
Not that you need a reason to put pretty flowers and thousand of peaches everywhere, but here’s a good one. Tall, life-size cherry blossom trees serve as the table focal point, while your eyes are free wander around from one peach centrepiece to another, making your wedding reception visually full and interesting. There’s always something eye-catching to see in this barn wedding reception and the smell, oh the smell, was amazing!

Italian Wedding Reception in a Medieval Castle
This Italian destination wedding got me feeling all the feels. It’s modern, elegant, timeless and ever so chic. Taking place in an ancient castle, it features a 30 foot long loose greenery runner that stretches across the entire table scape. I love that the decor takes centre stage but is not overpowering the walls stone texture. When you have a 900 year-old medieval castle as your wedding reception backdrop, rest assured, your wedding reception photos are going to be just breathtaking!
Venue: Castello Di Vincigliata, Florence, Italy

White Orchid Hanging Centrepieces
Tons of white orchid hanging centerpieces seem to defy gravity at this gorgeous, modern yet elegant Fermenting Cellar wedding. Aside from its beauty, this design is also pretty practical, as there is a space left for guests to mingle with each other and nothing is blocking their view of the lush head table situated in the centre of the room.

Secret Garden Inspired Wedding Reception
It’s one thing to create a beautiful wedding reception, and it’s another to make the garden inspired decor look so natural and effortless in the grand Governor’s Room of Liberty Grand. The lush cascading greenery adds a sense of movement and transforms the space into a whimsical garden straight out of a fairy tale. Just pure love.
