Creative Summer Wedding Ideas

Inspiration - 23.06.18

Congratulations – you’re planning your wedding! If it’s a summer celebration, why not make the most of the great outdoors? Embrace the season and the beauty of Braxted Park with our creative summer wedding ideas.

ALFRESCO CEREMONY

The Orangery at Braxted Park is an idyllic setting for civil ceremonies throughout the year. But, if the sun is shining, you might decide to marry in the delightful walled garden, surrounded by the blossom and bloom of the season.

CREATIVE COCKTAILS

After you’ve said your vows, enjoy welcome drinks and canapés on the lawn at Braxted. You might even decide to create your own cocktails, suiting your colour scheme and the style of your day. Be sure to choose both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options – perhaps a ‘his and hers’?

GARDEN GAMES

A few fun garden games can really entertain your guests while making the most of the outdoor space. Keep it classic with games like croquet and a coconut shy.

ALL ABOUT CAKE

From the prettiest sugar or fresh flowers to naked cakes laden with strawberries, reflect the season in your wedding cake.

WE ALL SCREAM FOR...

…Ice Cream! There’s surely nothing finer on a summer’s day. Delight your guests with an ice cream tricycle or station with exciting flavours and toppings.

HYDRATION STATIONS!

While cocktails are fun, you need to make sure your guests have plenty of non-alcoholic drinks on a warm day. With that in mind, offer a selection of delicious fruit-infused waters – they almost look too good to drink!

SUNSHINE ACCESSORIES

Consider accessories that make fun favours and also ensure your guests remain comfortable on a hot day. Baskets of sunglasses, pretty fans and even parasols can prove invaluable. You might even personalise them to add that extra special touch.

FABULOUS FLORALS

Embrace the season and go floral! Mirror the wonderful blooms of nature by choosing floral decorations, from your table linen to the bridesmaid dresses.

YOUR SUMMER MENU

With an abundance of wonderful seasonal food, summer is a great season for creating a memorable wedding breakfast. Consider a colourful summer afternoon tea, delicious tapas or an alfresco evening barbecue. Our talented chefs at Braxted Park are on hand, working with you to devise a menu you’ll never forget.
