Planning your 2020 outdoor ceremony?! It's no surprise that our Brollies have seen a fabulous variety of weddings, events, parties and ceremonies, and whilst many are hired as back-up for inclement weather, most have worked hard keeping guests both dry and sheltered! Here at Brolly Bucket we have experienced an increase in hire for outdoor weddings over the past year or so, and thought it useful to provide our top tips for planning your outdoor ceremony!
#1 - If you are lucky enough to be getting wed here in Scotland, outdoor weddings are legal, which means your wedding will be recognised by the law as official. However, unfortunately it isn't legal to get married outdoors in England & Wales unless you do so under a fixed roof like a pagoda. It doesn’t need to have walls, but must have a fixed roof, which is why you see so many band stands being used for weddings!
If you are in an area where an outdoor ceremony isn't legally recognised, there are things you can do. Many couples are choosing to do the 'paper work’ side of the marriage the day before, or earlier in the morning in a registry office, and then have the wedding they really want later, which gives you much more flexibility in their choice of location. Some don't even tell their guests the outdoors blessing isn't legal, with a good celebrant you would never know! .

It’s been no secret we have always loved a summer wedding but this has well and truly changed. Winter and the magic and atmosphere of the festive season really makes for the most unbelievably beautiful weddings. Winter Romance you have us hooked. Crisp cold days and the most romantic light is the ultimate combination.
