Delicate in Spring. The idea for this editorial was to encourage more couples to follow their passion for the great outdoors and host their weddings outside. Here in England planning an outdoor wedding can be tricky when battling the elements and so understandably outdoor weddings here in the UK often get overlooked. We wanted to create something in mid spring to inspire couples that even a few showers shouldn't stop you from having a wedding outside in the UK.

We arrived on the day to blue skies and showers. Originally we had hoped to set up the dinner table on the field where the ceremony was held but the weather changed our plans and made us set up in an even better spot. Under the grand porch at Stansted House was a perfect opportunity for us to create something truly special for our micro wedding.

We began to set up for dinner in awe of our surroundings. The Italian marble, tall grand doors and the wonder of who had been on this very porch in the 17th century when it was first built. We were surrounded by beauty and history and it was because of the rain that we were there.

This plan of ours had to be fluid in order for it to work. We had to work with the elements and in doing so we had the most magical day. If you're a couple wanting to have an outdoor wedding here in the UK then go for it. Theres always a way of making things work and you will not regret having an outdoor wedding, especially in the spring.
