Swoon-Worthy Ceremony Ideas for an Outdoor Wedding...

Summer is without a doubt the most popular time of year to say, ‘I Do’, and what better way to make the most of the sunshine-filled skies than with an outdoor wedding ceremony? We’ve got plenty of swoon-worthy ideas for making your ceremony space spectacular…

Effortless Elegant

An effortlessly elegant choice for any outdoor wedding ceremony, draped organza curtains can transform a space. Whether you choose simple white curtains or ones that have a subtle coloured hue, they will be all you need to create a magical ceremony space.

Rainbow Brights

Add a pop of colour to your outdoor wedding ceremony with hanging pom-poms in all the colours of the rainbow! You could use the hanging decoration after the ceremony for a DIY photo-booth, or you could even use it behind the top table during your breakfast as a statement backdrop.

Circular Archways

One of the hottest trends of the season, a circular archway adorned with your favourite blooms will definitely get your guests talking. You can style your archway to suit your theme or colour scheme too. Make sure the flowers match your bouquet and the rest of your floral design for a completely coordinated look.

Rustic & Romantic

Wooden doors at the entrance of your outdoor ceremony will look seriously cool – there’s no denying it. They’ll add something different to your ceremony space – you could even line the aisle with antique rugs to keep the ‘urban boho’ vibe going.

Wooden Tipis

Wooden details are always going to look gorgeous in the great outdoors, and a wooden tipi-inspired archway is made for the fashion-forward couple. Adorn it with flowers, organza curtains, fairy lights and more. There really are oodles of options…

Gorgeous Gazebos

If you’ve got your heart set on a gorgeous wooden gazebo, you’ll need to browse wedding venues that offer this option. Swing by our Cream of the Crop Wedding Directory at to kick-start the venue search!

Modern Metallics

If you want to give your outdoor wedding ceremony a stylish edgy vibe, consider a copper or rose gold metallic archway. Decorate it with foliage for a modern-minimalist feel, or use pampus grass for Coachella vibes.

Hanging Decorations

If your outdoor space is full of lots of lovely trees, make the most of them and adorn them with tonnes of hanging décor. From lanterns to hoops, ribbons to bunting, sometimes the simplest details can have the most impact.

Weatherproof Your Wedding

Whether you’re tying the knot in the UK or a faraway destination, you can never trust the weather at an outdoor ceremony. We recommend keeping a bucket of stylish umbrellas ready just in case it starts raining heavily. Alternatively, you could advise your guests that you will be tying the knot outdoors and they might bring one along!
