Summer Wedding Ideas in Hampshire
When you get engaged, it’s a time of joy and celebration, but then the planning kicks in. Couples have to think about everything from booking a venue to choosing a wedding caterer. If you’re booking a summer wedding in Hampshire, there are endless ideas available to give you the perfect day. Here are some handy tips to get your plans on track.
Choose the Right Venue for You
Hampshire has some of the most beautiful venues in the UK. Think about the type of summer wedding you want, choosing a venue which is going to suit those requirements. The local area has options to suit a range of wedding themes, budgets and tastes, including barns, vineyards and golf clubs. You could even opt for a large country house or stunning hotel for a quintessentially British summer wedding, including venues such as The Elvetham in Hook, Minstead Lodge in the New Forest, Audleys Wood Hotel in Basingstoke or Old Thorns Manor Hotel in Liphook.
Pick Wedding Food to Enhance Your Theme
Your wedding food is going to be one of the most important parts of the day and evening, and you can choose anything from a traditional sit-down wedding breakfast to a summer BBQ or grazing tables with piled high platters. One idea is to match your wedding food to your theme, so if you’re hoping to create a magical summer festival, for example, think about how your catering can add to the atmosphere, including live cooking over fire, sizzling BBQ sounds and delicious aromas of slow-cooked dishes. Or if you’ve booked something a little more nautical like Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa, why not add some seafood items to your wedding menu?
Summer Wedding Catering
The greatest weddings will always incorporate the season into the day, whether it’s choosing flowers in bloom, colours which reflect the time of year or fresh seasonal ingredients which are full of flavour. Think about the type of wedding caterer you want for the event and food menus which will go down a treat with guests expecting a feast.
One of the best ideas for summer weddings is delicious hog roasts, creating a buzz at your wedding while igniting all the senses with show-stopping dishes. Think pulled pork buns, crispy crackling and mouth-watering roast potatoes.
This type of wedding food catering is also perfect if you’re lucky with the weather and can head outside for some Hampshire outdoor catering. If you’ve planned a wedding in Hampshire’s famous countryside across areas such as the South Downs National Park or your venue has acres of land to enjoy, plan a feast with a view.
