If you're considering an outdoor ceremony, you're in for a beautiful and memorable experience. Read on to hear about the 3 things you must factor in and plan for... 
But with so many details to consider, planning an outdoor wedding ceremony can feel overwhelming. That's why I've put together three easy tips to help you plan the perfect outdoor ceremony. 
1. Consider the Weather and Have a Plan B 
One of the benefits of an outdoor ceremony is the natural beauty that surrounds you, but it's important to consider the weather as well. The UK weather is of course, notoriously unpredictable, so it pays to always have a backup plan should the weather take a turn for the worst. 
Most venues that offer outdoor wedding spaces usually do have an indoor option too, so you’ll want to discuss and agree what your contingency is should the heavens open, it’s like being inside an oven or it simply becomes too cold and uncomfortable to be outside come the big day. 
Keep an eye on the forecast leading up to your wedding day and have a backup plan in case of rain or extreme temperatures. Make sure that umbrellas will be on hand (outdoor venues often have a stock of them), and / or heaters to keep your guests comfortable. 
2. Choose the Right Location 
When choosing an outdoor ceremony location, consider the logistics of getting there and setting up. Is the location easily accessible for guests, suppliers, and any necessary equipment? Is there enough space for your desired number of guests and any additional features like a dance floor? Keep in mind any permit requirements or noise restrictions in the area as well. Local councils may consider permitting you using a stretch of public beach but do contact them well in advance of your chosen date to discuss regulations and what’s required. 
3. Incorporate Personal Touches 
An outdoor ceremony allows you to be super creative and add personal touches that will make your day unique. You can really put your stamp on things with decor when you hold your ceremony outdoors, and also add all kinds ofg special elements to your ceremony to create unforgettable memories and make your ceremony more special. 
By following these simple tips, you'll be well on your way to planning a beautiful and memorable outdoor wedding ceremony. As a wedding celebrant, I'm here to help you create the perfect ceremony that reflects your love and commitment to each other.
