“Woodland weddings, and GreenAcres, in particular, take you back to nature, and tranquillity. This lends itself beautifully to informal dining options such as feasting tables like the one by Caper & Berry, allowing guests to interact not to mention creating beautiful focal points.”

If you hop on over to Rock My Wedding, you can see the whole shoot and it looks amazing. We’re in love with the flowers, the food, the cake and the bridal fashion is absolutely heavenly.

Outdoor wedding ceremonies – planning tips

In many ways, planning your outdoor ceremony is just like planning a ceremony that takes place inside. However, there are a few things that you definitely need to keep in mind. Here’s a great checklist covering all the important points:

  • Make sure that your guests can find your outdoor ceremony with some easy-to-follow signs that will point them in the right direction
  • Think about the paths that guests will take to reach your ceremony. Will any of your guests have trouble walking to reach your chosen spot? If so, let us know and we can help
  • The trees provide a beautiful shady canopy, even on the hottest days but just think about where you’ll be standing during your ceremony so you’re not in full sun. If you’ve having live music during your ceremony, the performers will also need a shady area
  • Unlike indoor ceremonies, sound can almost get lost in the woodlands, so you need to make sure that everyone hears the ceremony. Think about how you’ll arrange your seating, so no one is too far away. Also, ask anyone giving readings to practice reading in a slightly louder voice than normal. If you’re really worried you won’t be heard, consider hiring microphones

Outdoor wedding ceremonies – things to remember

  • On a hot day, guests will really appreciate it if there’s water available at your ceremony. Fill a container with ice and add some bottles of water so that guests can help themselves. Don’t forget to recycle the bottles!
  • The woodlands are full of creatures and whilst some are super cute, some can be a little bit annoying. Don’t forget the apply some insect repellent as you’re getting ready!
  • When it comes to decorations, think carefully about what you’ll need. The woodlands are stunning as they are so don’t fell that you need to add a lot to your ceremony area. If you decide to decorate, think about weighting things down so they don’t blow away and make sure that larger decorations will work on an uneven floor
  • Whatever you do, the most important thing is that you enjoy your outdoor wedding ceremony. If you need any advice or if you’ve got any questions, do get in touch and we’ll be more than happy to help

To find out more about Beech Dell at GreenAcres Chiltern, get in touch with the team and arrange a time to come and visit. Don’t forget that there’s an Open House at Chiltern on 28thJuly 10am-2pm and we’d love to see you there.

WELCOME TO BEECH DELL

GreenAcres woodland weddings

Over the last few months, we’ve been working on something very exciting at GreenAcres Chiltern. Now, we’re thrilled to welcome you to Beech Dell, our brand new and utterly beautiful outdoor ceremony space. Set deep in the glorious woodlands, Beech Dell is the most perfect spot for outdoor weddings and its fully licensed for ceremonies with up to 275 guests. Read on to discover more and to find out about our upcoming Open House where you can see this super special spot for yourself.

Discover Beech Dell

Make your way through the woodlands and down through the trees and you’ll find Beech Dell. At the centre of the dreamy spot, you’ll find the carefully crafted ceremony shelter that blends wonderfully with the trees that surround it. Under this canopy, you can take your vows whilst your guests sit close by on handmade rustic benches.

Beech Dell is such a tranquil and secluded hideaway, it really is an idyllic setting for your wedding. You have a wide, long aisle to walk along, plenty of space for all your guests and a glorious backdrop for your ceremony. The trees provide plenty of shade and dappled sunlight fills the dell. From a practical perspective, well-kept footpaths will guide your guests to your ceremony and as the dell is a natural hollow, the sound of your voice won’t be lost either.

We know that so many couples dream of an outdoor wedding ceremony and we’ve worked hard to make this dream a reality for anyone who chooses to host their big day at GreenAcres. We hope that you’ll love Beech Dell as much as we do.
