With April nearly over and summer on the way we’ve been thinking how lovely it would be to tie the knot in the open air. Could there be a more romantic setting for a civil ceremony than the great outdoors? If you fancy holding your wedding outside, here’s a round-up of our top five outside wedding venues:

 

Wasing Park, Berkshire

Winner of Best Venue in the Perfect Wedding Awards 2011, Wasing Park has a traditional Victorian Summerhouse licensed for civil ceremonies in the grounds of this private estate. Its beautifully hand painted interior is the perfect backdrop for romantic wedding photographs.
