“Your wedding ceremony should be the most important aspect of your wedding day. It’s the part that really matters, the reason you and your guests are all there and the reason for the reception afterwards – to celebrate what happened in that ceremony.”

In reality, it is the part of the wedding day that is most often overlooked and more time spent on décor and entertainment than the words you’ll say to each other when you actually get married. I get it. It’s not the fun part and because of the rules around what words have to be said/can’t be said when using a registrar, there’s often not a great deal to decide on anyway other than some music and a couple of readings, right?

Wrong! There’s another way to make your ceremony really special that not many couples know about, although it is becoming increasingly popular as couples really want their whole day to reflect them and their personalities. I’m talking about a celebrant-led wedding.

Holly and Chris are the loveliest couple, and so gorgeous, both of them! I’m delighted to share their outdoor wedding with you today – it totally brings back those long summer days! Their theme was English country garden, with soft pinks and even an iced croquembouche to match their colours!

Holly found her dress in a closing down sale and fell in love with it – after alterations were made by the girls at Pure Couture it looked incredible and she’s such a beautiful bride! Bridesmaids wear dresses found on Etsy with straps which can be worn in different ways – a lovely way to please all your best girls, don’t you agree?

As our summers seem to be getting warmer outdoor weddings are finding their way onto the list of ‘must-haves’ for many UK brides and grooms; though the laws are still outdated and you can’t legally sign the register outside it doesn’t stop you from holding your wedding ceremony wherever you want it, indoors or out!

To celebrate all that is outdoor weddings Laurra from One Life Ceremonies, a Yorkshire based business specialising in personal wedding ceremonies that can be held absolutely anywhere, organised a photoshoot at Goldsborough Hall near Harrogate.


Laurra says, “I organised this photoshoot as I wanted to show that you can hold your wedding ceremony wherever you like, it doesn’t have to be in the room of a hotel or a stuffy Register Office, couples are only limited by their imagination and we have conducted weddings in woodlands, fields, by rivers and in Papakata tents.

“I chose Goldsborough Hall as it is a pretty amazing wedding venue and it has the most beautiful grounds and landscaped gardens so I knew would provide a stunning backdrop to the shoot.”
