Getting Married in 2021 – Outdoor Weddings
With the roadmap starting to ease over the next few months in the United Kingdom and with Summer well and truly on its way, couples are now starting to consider what their options might be if they do want to get married in 2021.
I don’t think many dared to think they could make it happen this year, but the mood is positive and I am expecting to see a flurry of wonderful wedding ceremonies as we move through the Summer months and into the rest of this year.
There has been a huge rise in popularity in outdoor weddings over the past few years and when the British weather is playing game then there is nowhere quite like blighty in the Sumer time.
There are so many different options available for outdoor weddings in this country, magical woodlands, farms, barns, fields and beautiful parks.
I recently visited the lovely Jenny from ‘Heritage Park Weddings’ – based in Bath and what a treat it was – www.heritageparkweddings.co.uk
Unique Park Weddings
Heritage Park Weddings have three very unique and special venues set within the parks of the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath. These include the Royal Victoria Park Bandstand, the Parade Gardens and Riverside Colonnades and the very special Temple of Minerva & Botanical Gardens.
I met Jenny at the Temple of Minerva and I felt like I was stepping into a piece of paradise just a stone’s throw from the city centre of Bath. The Temple of Minerva is a hidden gem amongst the tranquil and very beautiful setting of the Bath botanical gardens. It took my breath away and I couldn’t stop thinking about what a wonderful setting it is for a wedding.
The temple is licensed for up to 35 guests for a seated marriage or civil partnership, but when you open up the doors you can easily seat 100 guests outside comfortably if you are considering a Celebrant led wedding ceremony. The beauty of a Celebrant leading your wedding ceremony is that you can have your ceremony where you want, with no restrictions and no rules.
In addition, the Royal Victoria Park Bandstand has the most spectacular view of the Royal Crescent and is a Grade II listed Victorian Bandstand. This venue again is licensed for up to 40 people but the lawns can accommodate 100 people if you are thinking of a different type of ceremony.
Finally, the Paradise Gardens and The Riverside Colonnades have the most stunning backdrop of the city spires and the very famous Pulteney Bridge in Bath. Again, this venue offers the most impressive location for a Celebrant led ceremony.
Aside from being an absolutely stunning outdoor wedding venue, Heritage Park Weddings is also the perfect setting for a proposal/engagement as the grounds around these venues are simply beautiful and lend themselves well to the perfect proposal setting.
Once your loved one has said ‘yes’ you could then picnic and celebrate in the beautiful parkland surroundings. In addition, these venues would also lend themselves beautifully to a wedding blessing, vow renewal or a wonderful celebration of life.
