How to use the great outdoors to your advantage at your wedding

With spring almost upon us and summer just around the corner, taking your wedding celebration outdoors is now firmly back on the menu.

The great outdoors offers plenty of inspiration not to mention a magnificent backdrop for your big day. With this in mind, there are many ways you can use its beauty at your wedding. Here we explore how you can let nature be your guide…

Tie the knot alfresco

Here at Holmewood Hall, we’re well known for our stunning scenes both inside our historic house and outside throughout our extensive grounds. So much so that many of the couples who tie the knot with us choose to take full advantage of our picturesque setting with an outdoor wedding ceremony.

Our bandstand offers the perfect place to say “I do” before the party begins. It’s surrounded by the most beautiful parkland, gardens and manicured lawns so you, your partner and your guests can appreciate all the natural beauty our stunning wedding venue has to offer.

How you can use your wedding venue both indoors and out should be among the key questions when viewing your wedding venue.

Continue the celebration outdoors

It’s not just at your wedding ceremony where the external grounds of your wedding venue should be appreciated. Your reception is a great excuse to take your celebration outdoors, with courtyards, gardens and lawns providing additional space to party the night away.

Take your photoshoot off the beaten track

Whether the outdoors has played a vital part in your journey as a couple – perhaps it’s a love of hiking that first brought you together – or you’re simply looking for a spectacular backdrop to make your wedding album look extra epic, taking your photoshoot outdoors is a must. We’ll let WeddingWire explain why:

“The trend of having a pre-wedding outdoor photoshoot did not prevail a decade ago but these days, it is like one more ritual has been added to Indian weddings! An outdoor photoshoot now holds a lot of significance in a wedding as the bride-to-be and groom-to-be get some time for themselves during which they get to know each other well and even experience the beauty of nature together!”

Picturesque settings, great lighting, and that back to nature feel are just some of the reasons why outdoor photoshoots are popular at weddings of all styles and sizes, and you can be as creative as you like with your outdoor wedding photo ideas.

Let nature be your guide inside too

There are many ways that you can bring the outdoors in to deliver a nature-inspired big day. Greenery can be used to decorate your indoor wedding ceremony or reception tables to ensure an enchanting vibe throughout your special day.

Even your accessories can be inspired by the great outdoors. Headwear that makes use of beautiful seasonal blooms, and stunning bridal capes and capelets that provide chic coverage for celebrating both indoors and out are just some of the ideas that captivate outdoorsy couples looking for a personalised big day.
