It’s easy to see why summertime is the most popular time of year to get married; the days are longer, dryer and warmer, making it impossible to resist the possibility of an open air wedding ceremony. Popular summer wedding themes range from gorgeous boho country-chic to carnivalesque, fair-ground inspired fun. As the sun starts shining, the wedding venue possibilities roll in; outdoor beach parties, circus style big-top tents, or even a nautical trip to the big, blue ocean are all possibilities if you are tying the knot between May and August. All you need is a field, a marquee and a whole load of imagination – and Occasions Photography to snap up all the magic of course!
Summer wedding themes and outdoor wedding venues come with their own unique kind of exciting magic. There’s something indescribably romantic about taking your wedding party outside. Love is the most natural thing in the world so it is only fitting to celebrate your big day as close to nature as possible. A bride as beautiful as the proverbial English Rose is bound to look that little bit more radiant against the backdrop of a country garden party or carnival style circus tent. You can match your wedding colour scheme and flower arrangements to the glorious summer season as well. Red, pinks and pastel colours are a romantically refreshing change from the deeper hues of winter time wedding celebrations. Choosing your summer wedding flowers will be a breeze with so much choice and variety; you’ll have plenty to choose from no matter how small or lavish you want your big day to be. Winter hyacinths and ranunculus look lovely at winter weddings, but a summer soiree is a chance to choose some seasonal favourites for your bridal bouquet, such peonies and freesias.
We all know that it is impossible to rely on the weather being in your favour whether you have a winter or a summer wedding, but a summertime affair means you can at least take your celebrations outside and get creative with your wedding day choices. With warmer temperatures you can play around with your venue and let your imagination run wild. Fancy that English garden party summer wedding theme you’ve always dreamed of? How about a traditional circus complete with animals, a ring leader and a big top tent? Dream big this summer – we’ll be here eagerly waiting to capture the magic. We love photographing exciting and unusual weddings and we are so excited to see what summer wedding themes 2016 will bring.
