Despite the grey clouds overhead this morning, we are now in June and summer has officially started. Roll on the long nights, BBQ’s, ice creams and most importantly sunshine.

Summer is one of the most popular times of year to get married, with the guaranteed hot weather (ahem) making plans for an outside reception and photo opportunities that much easier.

In honour of Mr sunshine’s arrival (he will be here soon, promise!) we’ve pulled together some summer wedding ideas for you to look over and ponder.

Ice Cream on the Menu
Who doesn’t love ice cream right?

If you are looking to cool your guests down on a particularly hot summer day, then adding this sweet treat to the menu could be just the ticket.

Bonus points if you can match the colour of the ice cream to your wedding dress and wedding flowers.

Fairy Lights
One of the great things about summer are those nice long evenings that seem to go on forever.

Why not have your wedding or wedding reception at dusk under the stars and some fairy lights.

Bonus points awarded from all the guests who are a little cooler in their clothes while celebrating with you.

Brightly coloured bridesmaid dresses
Summer can provide the perfect backdrop for a bright colour scheme that can run through your flowers, buttonholes, decorations and even your bridesmaid dresses.

While it’s most certainly your big day, picking the right vibrant colours can complement your dress perfectly.

Bonus points if you can find a colour that all of the bridesmaids agree on.

If you haven’t quite decided on your colour theme or are still debating a range of ideas for your wedding, we can help.
