UK Outdoor wedding venues for the romantic
Nature offers the most romantic settings of all. Nothing beats that. Whether a spring flower sprinkled meadow, green lush forests or even a man made Botanical garden, nature paints its own wonderful setting to your special event.
For each season of the year nature adds it’s own special theme and atmosphere. Even winter offers you the chance to create a fairyland with garlands of lights strung through bare trees. Each season will offer you fresh opportunities to create your very own theme.
Space will be freely available. A public garden such as a park or Bontanic garden will have as much space as you need. It will have ample space for a huge marque, might already offer a good sized barn, or if brave you could even pull up a bit of that flowering meadow or fun hill top.
Decorating ideas will not be in short supply. Just add to what nature is already offering. Adapt your bridal entourage and venue decor to what nature is already providing. Autumn weddings lend themselves to warm browns and earthen colours while summer charms with yellows, reds and blues. And never forget those charming spring pastels.
Above all else, your outdoor wedding can lend itself to an informal celebration which will allow you to keep a tight reign on your budget.
Cons to keep in mind
The weather is always an issue. Of course a summer wedding in Spain is unlikely to get spoilt by rain. But you might die of heat. A wedding in a tropical environment will always have the threat of rain and Northern Europe will rain whenever it feels like it. Protect against this eventuality by having a tent or barn available should the need arise.
You might also need to bring in the mod cons if your venue is too rustic. From portable toilets to kitchen equipment all might need to be shipped in. It’s certainly not necessarily a cheaper option.
One other point to keep in mind is that you will in all likelihood not have event management staff to assist you. This means you have to do everything from finding vendors to making sure they actually deliver on the day.
Permissions might be difficult to obtain for public spaces and in some countries such as the UK you will not be able to have the legal part of your ceremony performed outside a registered venue. An additional trip to a registry office will need to be undertaken.
Outdoor wedding venues can be glorious
Overall, if you can cope with the few disadvantages, an outdoor wedding in the UK will offer you an opportunity for a relaxed, casual celebration with a charm all of its own. Flowers, beer tankards, rustic bread and farm style spreads can offer a truly wonderful occasion for all participants.
