Spring is a wonderful time of the year to have a wedding – with beautiful flowers and foliage coming to life, as well as the weather feeling decidedly more pleasant, it can make for a truly perfect day. As experienced photographers, we’ve photographed many spring weddings over the years, and that bright, happy feel-good vibe that they create really is difficult to beat. Here’s how to plan a spring wedding in the UK…
Save the date (ASAP!)
Spring is a very popular time to for couples to get hitched. So, if you do have your heart set on saying ‘I do’ at this time of year, you will need to think ahead. Start with securing the right venue. Do your research, but once you find your dream location, act fast and book it. The same applies for suppliers, such as caterers, florists and photographers, as they too can get booked up quickly for spring weddings.
Hire a professional wedding photographer
If you have a glorious springtime vision in mind for your wedding, you’ll need to find a skilled photographer who can capture it in on camera when the day arrives. Professional wedding photographers, including our team here at Hawaiian Shirt Photography, are experienced in photographing spring weddings. We have all the skills needed to showcase the true splendour of the day, producing breathtaking photos that you’ll treasure all your life.
Choose the perfect flowers
No wedding is complete without flowers, and spring can offer you a wealth of seasonal floral combinations. If you choose well, these blooms can make a huge impact on the day, making for some fantastic photographs. Choose a florist who’s going to provide you with lots of ideas to support your choices, and remember to book up quickly if you want their services at this busy time of year.
Select table decorations carefully
Your tables will be adorned with beautiful flower arrangements, but you need to complete them with centrepieces, as well as wedding favours. To complement your spring blooms, choose lots of polished metal and clear glass, as this can provide a classic and subtle look. Flowerpots complete with pretty foliage can serve as great place name holders or even favours for your guests to take home with them.
Prepare for showers!
Spring is famous for its beautiful weather –it’s warming up and the sun is gracing us with its presence once more after a cold, dark winter. However, it can also be unpredictable, as the weather can quickly and easily change from a sunny day to wet and cold within minutes. For this reason, it’s important to be prepared, so invest in some umbrellas for your guests. Multi-coloured umbrellas are a good idea to add a dash of style to the day.
