How to Create the Perfect Outdoor Wedding at Braxted Park

Inspiration - 22.05.18

A venue for all seasons, Braxted Park is exclusively yours on your wedding day and completely versatile depending on the weather. If the sun shines, we hope you’ll enjoy a magical outdoor wedding in the walled garden at Braxted Park. Set in the heart of the garden, the Knott garden is a haven of tranquillity for your truly enchanting experience.


While the gardens at Braxted are likely to be in full bloom, consider introducing additional floral designs to the ceremony area. You might choose pedestal arrangements at the front of the wedding aisle, or decide to have pretty pew end decorations. Whatever your choice, remember that flowers used during your outdoor ceremony can easily be used again during your wedding breakfast. Pew ends make great table decorations!


Every ceremony deserves a fabulous aisle, making the most of both the entrance and the exit. You might decide to line your aisle with rose petals, add a colourful runner or even personalise it with a bespoke monogram.


When it comes to the English weather, it’s always a good idea to prepare for all eventualities! If there are a few spots of rain, umbrellas could make the difference between staying outside until it passes and feeling like you need to escape indoors. Equally, if it’s an exceptionally hot day, offer parasols to shade your guests from the sun, or print your Orders of Service on paper fans.

Finally, make sure your hairdresser and make-up artist know you’re planning an outdoor ceremony. You need a hair style that can withstand a breeze!


Our talented team look forward to planning your perfect menu. When it comes to outdoor ceremonies, we will delight your guests with delicious summer canapés and perhaps even some elegant cocktails in the walled garden. It’s also essential to ensure that your guests have plenty of non-alcoholic drinks on a warm day.


Following your outdoor wedding, make the most of the beautiful gardens here at Braxted. They offer the perfect backdrop for your photographs, and they’re just the place for a post-ceremony treasure hunt!
