Countryside weddings are the epitome of English beauty and tradition and transition effortlessly from day to evening. Here is the ultimate guide to create a tradition, countryside wedding without spending the earth.
Whether you have decided to hold your wedding nuptials inside, perhaps in an ornately decorated barn or outside, in a glamorous and enchanting field setting, when planning a countryside wedding the right venue is key. These days, there is a wide variety of countryside wedding venue locations to choose from and it is vital that you and your partner take the time to visit each shortlisted location prior to booking.
Look for alternative indoor arrangements in place such as a wedding marque or organising gazebo hire in case the English weather decides to turn on you and ensure this is included in the cost prior to booking.
For a truly English arrival to your wedding and/or your reception for you and your betrothed, why not hire a classic, vintage car from englishweddingcars.com to really tie in your traditional countryside theme. Make your wedding day truly memorable by being driven to your wedding reception by a period-dressed chauffeur.
Weather dependent, the ultimate evening reception dream for a countryside wedding is to be outside, celebrating your romantic union underneath the stars. For a traditional countryside wedding, decorate your outside reception venue with rustic, tree stump seating, old style fire pits and fairy lights hanging from the trees and fences.
A Seasonal Focus
Obviously, nature and floral displays are a beautiful and expected element of any traditional countryside wedding and for a truly spectacular wedding aesthetic, ensure you select seasonal flowers dependent on the time of year your wedding will take place. Fresh flowers not only look incredibly stunning, but they also produce a beautiful and elegant fragrance that will be forever associated with your nuptials by your loved ones witnessing your union.
Any professional and experienced florist will be able to source any type of flowers regardless of the season, but if you decide to choose floral blooms and bouquets that are currently in season, you will ensure your flowers are in their prime and looking and smelling their very best.
There is a plethora of ways you can ensure your enchanting wedding is as intimate as possible and will make your wedding guests feel as they are an important part of your special day. Send beautiful and intricate handwritten invitations for a personalized and sentimental touch and carry this theme throughout the entirety of your wedding plans. Ask each guest for three of their favorite songs and hire an acoustic wedding band to play through the reception the instrumental version of the selected songs.
Other ways to ensure your countryside wedding is emotionally intimate is to, naturally, ensure to keep the wedding guest list to a minimum, treat your bridal party to small yet deeply meaningful gifts and personalize your table décor with aspects of you and your fiancé’s personalities and characters.
