How to have a wedding in your own garden

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on March 30th, 2011 1 comment

When it comes to deciding on the venue of your wedding, it might be that the perfect location is right at your doorstep: your back doorstep in fact!

As more couples are opting for bespoke ceremonies and less formal receptions for their big day, finding the right venue will often prove difficult. Most venues will insist on a specific package, a minimum number of guests, money spent on drinks and so the costs just keep on mounting up. And the wedding isn’t necessarily going to be that personalised as it will be what the happy couple before you had and the happy couple before them and so on…

If you’re lucky enough to have your own garden (or know someone that does) why not turn your little plot of land into a stunning setting for a wedding tea party.

Yorkshire based company Backyard Weddings has noticed this trend are offering a bespoke service for Northern brides and grooms who wish to say their vows in the comfort of their own garden. Backyard Weddings will come to you, set up the marquee in case it rains complete with chandeliers, deck the furniture (they’ll bring it!) with vintage twist – making it perfect for a vintage tea party. The service also includes a bespoke wedding ceremony, so you’ll be able to decide on every little detail! And if you’ve got 150 friends, it doesn’t matter as they can cater for very small to more meadow sized wedding parties.

Are you planning a garden wedding? We’d love to hear from you.

  • I’m not planning one as such but would love to have one, seems very unfair that we can;t and I spend hours and hours drooling over the UA and Australian blogs and their lovely backyard weddings. There are ways around it for us (I wrote about this recently on my blog too) and companies like Backyard Weddings making it ever more possible.
