More and more couples are taking preference to an outdoors rather than the classic indoor wedding. The UK provides a myriad of outdoor options from which to choose that include a well-maintained garden, a rustic farm setting, or a wild forest venue we provide all the information you need to help you make your choice.
If you decide on an outdoor wedding, there is no better place to tie the knot than in a beautifully designed floral garden. The Royal Botanical Gardens of Kew in London complete with a gorgeous outdoors full of stunning and exotic flowers and an indoor option just in case it rains is one such venue. If rain is a concern, why not just get married in Las Vegas!
The Palm House, one of four options, makes an impressive space with huge high ceilings in a Victorian designed glass structure. It is characterised by palm trees and ponds filled with huge Lilly pads creating a lush environment for such a special occasion. The Bingham in Surrey set by the River Thames provides a more rustic wedding setting. The Bingham Garden itself is a romantic countryside location and to complement the day there is a Secret Garden perfect for a little intimacy. There is also an option to go punting if you so desire.
The Wasing Estate in Berkshire with the more genteel Secret Walled Garden is a favourite venue. They provide a little more wilderness in the form of their “Woodland weddings”. The setting is in the old woodland and nothing could be more magical than to be surrounded by these ancient trees. To add to the already exemplary setting, the estate is also eco-friendly enabling those who wish to remain green to have that special moment in the country with no negative repercussions. Considerations – everyone and not just the guests should be dressed appropriately! There is no need for your shoes to distract you during the wedding! The forest may already be a stunning backdrop to this event but to enhance that further, include a natural colour scheme and wildflowers into the actual theme of the wedding. To complement the eco-friendly nature of the venue source and buy food from the locals.
Finally, remember the weather can change in an instant but this does not mean that things turn for the worst. It is possible even then for a woodland wedding to be magical.
