Theme Of Your Wedding Venue

Woodhall Manor is near the Suffolk Heritage Coast, an area of outstanding natural beauty, so you could weave some chic coastal details into your decor, like pebbles, driftwood, nautical stripes and shells. If you’re after more of a rustic look, look to the miles of rolling Suffolk countryside and incorporate natural touches like hay bales, hessian, wooden details and bountiful blooms into your day. Or if you’re a music lover, perhaps a festival theme is more your style? Take inspiration from Suffolk’s Latitude Festival and create your very own event with tipis, street food stations and plenty of live music.

Outdoor weddings for summer

Embrace The Warm Weather With An Al Fresco Ceremony

Woodhall Manor is an exclusive-use venue, which has a license to hold civil indoor and outdoor ceremonies. What better way to tie the knot than in a stunning country house, or in the beautiful grounds surrounded by the walled garden? Ceremony spaces don’t get much more romantic than this, so use the English country garden feel in your summer styling with a rose petal-strewn aisle, a floral moon arch and soft flowing chair drapes that’ll ripple softly in the summer breeze – what a perfect setting for your ceremony! Just make sure to have a Plan B for inside, should any rain clouds turn up uninvited.

Outdoor Space Of Your Wedding Venue

Suffolk’s countryside is undeniably beautiful and in the summer months you can really make the most of the stunning gardens by hosting some of your wedding day celebrations outside. Invite guests to enjoy the Manor’s 9 acres of enchanting gardens by setting up a bar serving your favourite summer drinks like a gin bar, prosecco van or a Pimm’s station. Serve drinks with edible blooms as decoration for extra seasonal style points. Keep guests entertained while they toast to your future with giant lawn games and celebratory music – steel pan bands are particularly good for creating a happy summery vibe.

Summer Colour Scheme
Sunny days call for light and bright colours, so keep your colour palette as fresh and joyous as the sun and surroundings. Think bright pops of pink, creamy peach, soft cornflower blue, sunny yellow and vibrant greens. An all-white palette can look very chic at this time of year too, against the brilliant blue skies and lush green gardens.

Summer Flowers

There are so many beautiful blooms in season for a summer wedding that you can go wild when it comes to your floral style. For a statement, choose bold and bright sunflowers or structural calla lilies or for a more carefree romantic vibe, there are daisies, roses and gypsophila. These flowers could be used as pew ends for your outdoor ceremony, or as centrepieces for your wedding breakfast and wedding reception. At a summer wedding, flowers look particularly gorgeous in your hair. So ask your florist about flower crowns for you and your bridesmaids, which will look truly stunning in wedding photos!
