With magnificent backdrops, natural surroundings and an abundance of space, there are many reasons to take your wedding ceremony outdoors at Davenport House. Here are just a few thoughts to inspire your summer wedding ideas.
Marrying in the great outdoors undoubtedly gives you the opportunity to embrace a more natural aesthetic, soaking up the ambience of the setting. At Davenport House, you can say ‘I do’ on the lawn in front of the lily pond with striking views over the Shropshire countryside. As well as being hugely romantic, this outdoor setting often gives a more relaxed and informal vibe to the proceedings.
Of course, the beauty of this natural setting also means that you have fabulous opportunities for photographs. With ceremonies on the lawn, the countryside becomes your backdrop while ceremonies on the front steps offer the stunning façade of Davenport House. Your photographs will also be filled with colour and natural beauty. Speak to your photographer about the images you would like to capture.
With an abundance of open space, an outdoor wedding gives you the opportunity to be a little more creative with your seating arrangements. While you might choose to have traditional rows with a central aisle, another option could be to have your guests in a more circular formation while you marry in the centre. The choices are yours!
The magnificent gardens at Davenport House are a dream for your younger guests. An outdoor wedding gives them space to spread out, perhaps enjoying a treasure hunt while you relax over drinks and canapés after the ceremony.
While you might plan an outdoor ceremony, the indoor spaces at Davenport House are still exclusively yours. If the weather is inclement, you can always say your wedding vows in The Saloon or The Great Hall, filled with natural light and with doors opening out on to the lawn. And, of course, the magnificent Ballroom awaits for your wedding breakfast.
