If you are getting ready to choose a venue for your 2018 spring or summer wedding, chances are you’re already shopping around for outdoor venues to celebrate your nuptials. Outdoor weddings are one of the biggest trends for the 2018 bridal season, and with good reason – there’s nothing like a nice, festive al fresco fete to set the tone for a hearty, fun-filled celebration.
As one of the foremost wedding stretch tent providers in the UK, the Tentickle United Kingdom team has been around the outdoor wedding block, so we know the lay of the land and read up about emerging venues to stay in the know. Here are three of our favourite outdoor wedding venues in and around London for 2018:
The Roof Garden
The Roof Gardens in Kensington is a wonderful option if you want a scenic outdoor wedding without actually leaving the city. The official ceremony has to take place indoors, but there is a rather marvelous outdoor reception area that overlooks the city and is the ideal spot to let off a few fireworks! Visit their website here.
The Matara Centre
Located in the Cotswolds, a current wedding hot spot, The Matara Centre is situated at the heart of 28 acres of gorgeous parkland and boasts a decidedly tranquil atmosphere. Here, bridal parties can say their I do’s next to a Japanese-style lake in a cloistered courtyard and plant a tree to commemorate their big day. How dreamy? Visit their website here.
Chelsea Physic Garden
If it’s verdant, natural beauty in an enviable postal code you want, the Chelsea Physic Garden will tick all your boxes. Here, you can tie the knot and socialise with guests in a secret garden on the lush banks of the Thames. Visit their website here.
As we all know, the weather in and around The Big Smoke is notoriously fickle, and while old wives’ tales will have us believe that rain on your wedding day points to a great many blessings throughout your marriage, it’s still a bit of a drag. If you do choose to host an outdoor reception (even at the height of summer), it’s highly recommended that you reserve a wedding tent to keep your guests dry while they nosh on your tasty canapes and criticise your choice of table layout. Tentickle United Kingdom offers a wide selection of wedding stretch tent hire packages throughout the UK. Get in touch to find out more, and let’s discuss your budget.
