Make your summer wedding truly memorable …

Planning a summer wedding is a fabulously magical time and you will want to make the most of the great outdoors while creating a romantic and sensational setting for you and your guests to enjoy. Read on for some top tips on how to make your summer wedding a real occasion to remember:

Find the right venue

Choosing the right setting for your perfect day can be a daunting prospect. For a summer wedding you’ll want to find somewhere with stunning and eye-catching gardens so that you and your guests can enjoy sipping a glass of champagne while strolling through the grounds and enjoying the view. Depending on the size of your wedding this could be a classic stately home, a hotel with landscaped grounds, a barn or even a marquee in the garden. You’ll know when you’ve found the perfect setting to begin your married life. Marrakesh on deckiing at Poulton Le Flyde

Personalise your venue

Make your venue really stand out from the crowd with some fabulously stylish hired furniture. Eye catching furniture will transform your venue and you can create your own zones to suit your day. As you are hosting your wedding during the summer, garden furniture hire will really give your guests something to talk about. Hire white coffee tables, sofas and scatter cushions where your guests can sip champagne, soak up the sunshine and wait for the wedding breakfast to begin. Or for a more informal touch, why not add deckchairs or day beds and background music to capture a relaxed chill-out atmosphere for the end of the evening when you need a break from dancing? Director chairs are perfect for your atmospheric and stylish sit down meal, and dressing your venue and furniture in white will really bring your summer theme to life.

Final touches

For the ultimate summer wedding, serve Pimms and Lemonade to guests or add fresh summer fruits to the first glass of champagne. If you are lucky enough to have your actual wedding ceremony outdoors, lay fresh daisies or summer flowers on the ground to create an aisle to walk down. You could use the same type of flowers in your bouquets or in your flower girl’s hair. When the sun goes down, hang lanterns in the trees for the ultimate romantic touch and hire Athena patio heaters to keep your guests comfortable.

Don’t forget to capture every moment of your summer wedding with photographs throughout the day capturing the ceremony, sit down meal, guests relaxing on deckchairs and day beds and the magic of the lanterns when the sun goes down.

Wedding days are there to be celebrated, enjoyed and remembered for years to come.  By adding special, personal touches such as hired garden furniture, summer fruits, flowers and lanterns, you will create an unforgettable romantic atmosphere that will give both your wedding day and your married journey together the best possible start.
