How to get hitched outdoors all year long.
With the arrival of British Summer Time comes lighter evenings, beautiful seasonal flowers (hello Peony season!) and a bumper time for bank holidays. Spring feels fresh and full of promise, and it’s also not as wet as you have been led to believe – it’s honestly a wonderful time of year for an outdoor wedding ceremony. A light blue suit would look amazing against a backdrop of fresh flowers and lush foliage. Pair this with a white shirt and colour-pop tie and you’ll fit right in to the optimistic spring mood.
If you’re dreaming of an outdoor wedding blessed with balmy weather, then summer is the best time to do it! A huge number of weddings take place across August and September, so get planning early to secure your favourite dates, venue and suppliers. If you’re having a classic British garden wedding complete with lawn games and refreshing cocktails, a stylish light-coloured suit like this neutral one would be the perfect option. It’s lightweight and adaptable, with a tailored fit and minimal lining leaving you feeling well-dressed, cool and comfortable.
With temperatures gradually decreasing, autumn is a wonderful time of year to embrace the great outdoors – think soft, warm light and a rich colour palette. The popularity of tweed for groomswear is a trend that grows year on year, and we can understand why. It’s stylish, versatile and will keep you warm on those cooler days. Team the Moss blue Donegal tweed suit with a crisp white shirt, dusky pink tie, and taupe loafers for a lighter take on this seasonal classic.
Outdoor ceremonies in winter? They’re absolutely do-able, and actually quite magical. Just don’t forget the candles, blankets and a fire pit or two! If you’re planning on spending a good part of your winter wedding outdoors, then you’re going to need your outfit to work hard for you. We love a tuxedo-inspired jacket with high wool composition and a sharp outline. Ever considered swapping your white shirt for a stylish merino rollneck? Now’s the time to do it!
