Tips if you are planning an English garden wedding:
Weather Considerations: Embrace the unpredictable English weather by having a backup plan, such as a tent or indoor space, in case of rain. Provide umbrellas or parasols for guests if the weather takes a turn.
Décor that Complements Nature: Enhance the garden’s natural beauty with décor that complements rather than competes with the surroundings. Use floral arrangements, garlands, and soft lighting to accentuate the garden’s charm.
Photography and Videography: Work with a creative team to identify picturesque spots within the garden for capturing special moments. Embrace the beauty of the landscape for stunning wedding photos.
Timing and Season: Choose the time of year wisely, considering the blooming seasons and weather patterns in the area. Spring and summer often showcase gardens in their full splendor.
