Outdoor weddings are a wonderful option for nature-loving couples wanting to hold their wedding celebrations in the great outdoors. It is a unique and vibrant experience.
Getting married outside is a growing trend which we believe will be even more popular in the future.
The benefits of an outdoor wedding
There are a huge amount of benefits to hosting an outdoor wedding…
More space: guests have the option to mix and mingle without being confined in spaces. And you won’t have to worry about narrowing your guest list down.
Romantic: hosting a wedding reception under the stars oozes romance.
Fewer decorations: when you’re already surrounded by scenery, you have a head start of the décor. Choose a location that gives you a backdrop that matches your ideal themed wedding.
Natural lighting: this flows throughout the day creating a wide range of theme options for your photos. Take advantage of the warm colour tones of the sun during the day, and use the right photographer for amazing night photography.
What is the best season for getting married outdoors?
Most would choose a spring or summer wedding, where the weather is warmer. Spring brings blooming gardens and summer brings fantastic blue skies – both of which create a beautiful backdrop for exchanging your vows. But that doesn’t mean we should dismiss a late autumn or winter wedding. Although you’re gambling with elements a little more, autumn weddings offer earthy colours. Winter weddings also have a magical air to them, and you might even get a dusting of snow.
