When love is in bloom, there’s no better time of year to get married than spring. Pretty flowers, lighter evenings and rays of sunshine make it the season to get married al fresco! But we all know the British weather can do a u-turn at the last minute, so a spring bride has to be prepared to rock an April shower in style! So, for better or worse, here’s some gorgeous spring wedding inspiration to take your wedding outside, whatever the weather.
Romantic Spring Garden Wedding
When you think of spring, the first thing that comes to mind is beautiful blooming flowers. Lilac, daisies, peonies, yellow trillium’s, tulips, forget me nots – the choice and colours are endless. This makes a garden setting the perfect backdrop for an outdoor wedding. If your garden venue has certain flowers in bloom, match your bridesmaid’s bouquets and table centrepieces with these colours for a natural spring arrangement that looks freshly picked from the garden!
Whether you want to keep it relaxed and informal in your own garden, or choose a fabulous landmark with acres of land, mother nature has already done the hard work in making your venue look great, so all it needs is a few finishing touches. Tea lights and lanterns are perfect for creating a whimsical and romantic atmosphere, and they will keep a garden lit up throughout the day and night. A tipi hire is a fab idea if you want to provide some shelter for dinner or to create a space for your guests to dance to an incredible live band.
Magical Woodland Wedding
Take your wedding outdoors to a woodland setting for a truly magical ceremony. A secluded space just for your guests with an illuminated aisle, altar and trees as a backdrop – can you think of a more magical setting for a spring bride to make her entrance? This is a unique and inspiring wedding venue ideal for the vintage or bohemian bride to truly embrace nature. We’re talking flower crowns, vintage dresses, nature-inspired accessories, vintage folk bands and rustic wooden benches for your guests. Moss and wildflowers are a beautiful choice for bouquets and decor at a spring woodland wedding.
English Countryside Wedding
Whatever your style (or weather!) there is no better backdrop for a spring wedding than the picturesque English countryside. Complete with a rustic barn, carefree tipi or grand manor house, acres of countryside is the perfect outdoor setting for photos and alfresco dining with your family and friends. With plenty of space, you can make your big day a spectacular occasion with stalls, games and funfair rides. All the bride will need is her colour coordinated wellies or converse to get stuck in with all the fun!
