An outdoor wedding ceremony can be one of the most romantic ways to get married, a wonderful day for you and your guests. What could possibly be better than having your wedding on a gorgeous English Summer afternoon, in a beautiful garden surrounded by the people you love most?
Well, I bet you're thinking about the weather now! That's one of the variables you just can't do anything about, unfortunately. But if your wedding venue has the flexibility and capacity, then some last minute changes can easily accommodate an indoor ceremony. Luckily Emilie and Andy didn't need that, but their venue choice, Wasing Park in Berkshire, would have had them covered with the Garden Room had the weather been unkind to them.
Emilie got ready in the bridal suite, before walking down the garden aisle to meet Andy at the Victorian Summerhouse. They'd decorated the gardens and summerhouse beautifully, allowing me to get some great photos of their outdoor wedding ceremony.
Here's some of my favourite photographs from the celebrations. If you're planning an outdoor wedding ceremony and like the look of my documentary wedding photography, please ask me for some details and availability. For something a little different, consider Wasing's woodland venue - check out Vicky and Matt's Woodland Wedding Photography.
