I have just moved my ceremony location and now feel that we need a ceremony canopy/modern chuppah type structure to get married under. We are getting married at a very modern hotel overlooking the water in Australia – the only fully branded fashion house hotel in the world! I fancy a structure that is simple, modern and with perhaps lace but i’m not sure. I can’t find a picture of exactly what I want.
Can anyone help out with pictures? I don’t want flowers on it – I have huge poseys of peonies to stand at the top of each side of the aisle and just in front of the structure.

Are you trying to visualize the actual canopy itself, or the supportive structure? Because I think both can have wide varietions. (Well, maybe more potential for variation in the canopy than the poles.)
I’d imagine if you want modern, you’d want simple, clean metal poles as a support. A far as the covering…do you want a “modern” look that compliments the setting? And is that the area you’re finding yourself stuck on?

I don’t know if this is something that would help to inspire you, but this is the huppa we had at our indoor, garden ceremony (of course you could do away with the flowers and possibly use lace of some sort).

@judithsr: I’m trying to visualise the entire thing really! I think I’m more stuck on the poles to be honest (though I’m also stuck on the covering too). I like the idea of soft floaty material with a lace edge, and I’m not necessarily needing something with a cover on the top – but the poles are the real problem. I have spent hours googling and can’t find anything that takes my fancy for our ceremony space – it’s very frustrating. It’s the only thing I’ve been stuck on the whole wedding!

@Laurajpearce: Hi, I am not Jewish but i plan on using a chuppah ( canopy) as well for my oustside lake ceremony. By looking around and googling I came across this idea: use the pole structure of those popup gazebos and DNT use the covering that comes with it but instead use tulle, or some other fabric, flowers, lace , beads, whatever you like really.

There are so many beautiful ways to create and personalize a chuppah! As a wedding photographer I’ve seen many lovely variations on the theme–from simple posts held by friends of the bride and groom and draped with fabric, to elaborate structures built to be a lasting part of their home together.
