Your Spring Venue

Choosing the perfect venue for your ceremony and wedding reception will really help to set the scene for your spring wedding. If you have your heart set on an outdoor ceremony, don’t miss the Gazebo at Mythe Barn in Leicestershire.

Blackwell Grange in Warwickshire is another dream choice for a garden wedding theme. Set amongst beautiful Cotswold countryside, enjoy welcome drinks on the Cider Lawn overlooking Chestnut Dell.

Wherever you choose, always look for a venue that has great space both inside and out, enabling you to make the most of the great outdoors on a sunny day, or bring the outside in if you’d prefer to be indoors. We love the romantic courtyard at Curradine Barns in Worcestershire, just the place to relax with your friends and family, enjoying welcome drinks after your ceremony, or informal dining in the evening.

Co-ordinate your flowers with your stationery, giving your guests a hint of what is to come! A neutral coloured card completes the theme of nature.

The Garden Decor

Your table plan can be in keeping with your garden theme too. This ‘secret garden’ seating plan would be simple to create but is extremely effective.

When it comes to table decorations, create a garden theme by bringing the outside in and adorning your venue with fresh flowers. Always stick to seasonal blooms, reflecting the flowers outside the window.

With nature comes abundance, and an effective garden theme should be generous and lavish. This is not the time for minimalism! Flowers don’t need to be arranged in strict colour themes or design and should instead have that ‘just picked’ look, as if they have come straight from the garden.

Of course, flowers also make great favours. Give each guest a potted plant to take home.

Bring nature on to your table with a grass table runner. Adorned with beautiful flowers, simple china and silverware, it looks elegantly rustic.

For the ultimate in opulence, we love these indoor trees with miniature chandeliers. High ceilings and a grand venue are a must for such elaborate styling!

We’re generally not quite brave enough to dine outside in the British weather, but you can certainly make an indoor space feel like a garden. This breathtaking room offers a perfect example. Surround your tables with greenery, and hang lighting and foliage from the ceilings. Keep your table setting simple and understated, allowing the surroundings to speak for themselves.

Use natural vessels wherever possible, displaying flowers in that just-picked style.

All About Cake

A naked cake is the obvious choice for a garden wedding theme, natural in appearance and adorned with fruits and fresh flowers. Choose flowers that suit your chosen colour scheme.

Of course if you really are bringing the outside in, how better to decorate a cake than with fresh blooms. A textured white cake is the perfect base layer.

Finally… don’t forget about the outside after dark. Use clever lighting to keep the great outdoors as part of your celebration after the sun goes down. Illuminate pathways, arches and trees, and consider having fire pits for warmth. Perhaps it’s time for hot chocolate and marshmallows!
