Iceculture - Thinking Small
Iceculture - Thinking Small

For those planning a wedding during this time of lockdowns, restrictions on crowd size, travel restrictions and quarantine regulations, changing plans has become part of the plan.  As difficult as it can be, this shift in perspective can open up new opportunities to get creative.  Smaller gatherings can allow more focus on the quality and details that make your special day meaningful and memorable for your family, guests and yourselves.

For over 30 years, Iceculture has worked from our studio in the tiny town of Hensall, Ontario to create custom ice sculptures for countless weddings and events across Canada, around the globe, and right here in our local community.

Ice is a medium that offers a world of possibilities beyond decorative sculptures and endless opportunity for customization.  Though our specialty for years has enjoyed the trend of ice bars and large sculpture installations, some of the most creative and meaningful pieces have been the smallest.  A favourite is bespoke ice cubes with the happy couple’s initials clearly etched into the ice using a snowfilled technique that creates a white on crystal clear ice effect.  Tapping into the trend towards luxury cocktail ice, this is an easy way to turn your drinks into something personal, memorable and perfect for photos.

Iceculture offers a full range of wedding sculptures that can also be personalized.  And the sculptures don’t have to be big either!  To meet the needs of small gatherings and elopements, we’ve been growing our repertoire of smaller items that blend eye-catching beauty and practicality.  Consider individual wine chiller table centerpieces, ice shot glasses, a liquor luge for interactive drink service, ice antipasto trays to keep food chilled, ice bowls for gelato, and more.  No matter your wedding size or décor, our team will work with you to design and create the perfect piece.

To make your day as convenient as possible, we also offer bagged ice for chilling and serving your drinks so all your ice needs are met in one simple delivery.  Of course, with years of ice knowledge under our belt, even our bagged ice is far from ordinary.  In 2020 we introduced Hensall Ice Company – a division of Iceculture dedicated to cocktail ice, with a focus on quality and sustainability.  Hensall Ice Co. makes our own high-quality cocktail ice for your drinks, packaged in environmentally friendly bio-degradable bags.  For chilling cans and bottles, we offer extra-large, long-lasting shard ice to fill coolers so they’ll stay cold all day and all night – because even a small party needs cold drinks!

To all the couples making their way through wedding planning during this time, we’re here for you - thinking small and finding magic in the details.
