How to Host the Perfect English Garden Outdoor Wedding

North West Wedding Fair exhibitor Bartle Hall explore the beauty of garden weddings

There’s something so romantic about an outdoor wedding ceremony, as the natural elements symbolise the strength of your union.

Outdoor ceremonies require minimal decoration, as you can rely on the green surroundings and landscaped grounds to provide the colours and fragrance – peach blossom, fresh eucalyptus, flowering hydrangeas, weeping willow trees for example! A simple ivory drape around the designated ceremony area frames the service nicely, and you could line the aisle with fresh petals and lanterns.

Having attended two outdoor ceremonies myself, I can speak from the heart that they create an overpowering feeling of both reflection, romance and individuality that can make the ceremony the most memorable part of the day.


The legal side

In England a legal wedding can only take place in a venue licensed for weddings and cannot take place in the open air, in a tent, marquee, or any other temporary structure. Ensure you choose a venue that has a licence for the outdoor area you are about to say your vows in. It is also important to ensure that you have a back up option in case of poor weather.

To exchange vows and rings, to say “I do” and to have your first kiss as husband and wife in natural surroundings can be breathtaking, are you ready for the emotions?!

With nothing but green as far as the eye can see, this setting brings tranquility to your wedding and is difficult to beat!
