5 Reasons to Host an Outdoor Wedding

Inspiration - 07.05.19

From outdoor wedding ceremonies to garden games and Champagne on the lawn, there are many reasons to host an outdoor wedding at Braxted Park in Essex. And of course, if it does decide to rain, we have plenty of beautiful indoor settings too!

1. Say ‘I Do’ in the Walled Garden

The idyllic Walled Garden at Braxted Park invites you to experience the most magical wedding ceremony within its beauty. With your guests seated on the lawn, exchange your vows on a carpet of white rose petals in the intimate Knott Garden.

2. Host an Outdoor Drinks Reception

Serve Champagne, cocktails and canapés in the gardens. Even if it’s not quite warm enough for an outdoor ceremony, we’re sure guests will love a glass of fizz while strolling across the lawns during your wedding reception. With fountains, sculptures and hidden corners, it’s the perfect space for guests to mingle and soak up the atmosphere.

3. Play Games in the Great Outdoors

There’s nothing quite like an outdoor game or two to bring a quintessential English country wedding to life, whether you’re planning croquet on the lawn or enjoying a little competition over a coconut shy. With wonderful surprises at every turn, the Walled Garden also lends itself perfectly to vibrant music and dancing.

4. Embrace the Beautiful Gardens and Grounds

Whatever the time of year, we hope you will introduce the gardens and grounds in to your wedding day, bringing the natural colours alive in your chosen colour scheme and wedding flowers. The garden holds glorious treats in store throughout the year from its abundant colours and scents in the spring and summer months to rich hues in the autumn and its romantic winter scenery.

5. Enjoy Your Day… Whatever the Weather

Of course, as Braxted Park is exclusively yours, if it decides to rain, you can we know you will love the stunning indoor spaces. Marry in front of the magnificent arched windows in the Orangery and dine and dance the night away in the Pavilion, surrounded by the glorious gardens at every turn.
