You’re not alone if you secretly wish English brides and grooms could marry anywhere, like they can in the US: at home, on the beach, or in a beautiful woodland setting like this. That time will come… in the meantime, there’s so much to be said for bringing nature indoors – choose woodland foliage and twisting branches in your bouquet; add butterflies to your tables and stationery; and choose a venue with a patch of woodland nearby so you can escape for beautiful portraits with your love!
