Spring Wedding Ideas for a Boutique Country House Wedding Venue
With spring just around the corner, we’re dreaming of those glorious seasonal weddings with beautiful colours, fabulous flowers, lighter evenings and exquisite food. Let’s be inspired by some wonderful wedding ideas for your spring wedding.
Time to Marry
If you’re planning your wedding towards the end of the spring season, you might decide to say ‘I do’ in the great outdoors. At Swynford Manor, our pretty pergola is licensed for civil ceremonies, giving you the opportunity to marry surrounded by our beautiful gardens. Of course, you can stay outside and enjoy reception drinks on the lawn as well.
As the glorious season approaches and the flowers begin to bloom, it’s time to consider your colour scheme. Embrace all that nature offers, perhaps choosing a palette of delicate pastels or focusing on shades of pink, hues of blue or the bright yellows found in abundance of this time of year. The elegant interior of Swynford Manor means you can introduce your chosen colours, or even just stick to crisp white with a hint of natural greenery.
Pastel shades are a wonderful choice for spring:
Delicate hues of green or blush pink also work perfectly:
Monochrome black and white is effortlessly elegant and lifted with some foliage:
Food and Drink
Our talented in-house catering team will work with you to create the perfect menu for your spring wedding day, from delicious canapés on the lawn to a memorable wedding breakfast and delicious evening food. Seasonal produce is always a favourite and we’ll help you make the most of the great outdoors too. You might, for example, decide to have a hog roast on the lawn as day turns to evening?
Or why not introduce signature cocktails with a spring theme:
It’s all in the Detail
Embrace the season when planning the more intricate elements of your wedding day, from your table flowers to your cake design and favours.
Flowers (sugar or fresh) are a popular choice for spring wedding cakes. You might even decide on a semi-naked cake adorned with seasonal fruits or flowers:
Seed packets are a fun idea for a spring wedding favour, and of course daffodils make a lovely favour idea for spring too.
Consider a Theme
If you’re marrying in the spring, consider adopting an Easter theme. Eggs are the obvious form of décor, whether you chose a pastel colour scheme or a more glamorous gold and white alternative.
A simple chocolate egg wrapped in gold paper is an elegant favour choice for a boutique country house wedding. You might even write place names on egg shells!
We love these pretty floral decorations with seasonal flowers including lily of the valley. Carry the theme through to your cake.
And of course… don’t forget to arrange an Egg Hunt!
