Five reasons to have a summer wedding

at Armathwaite Hall Hotel and Spa

Located on the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake amid breathtaking countryside, Armathwaite Hall Hotel and Spa is the perfect place to get married in traditional summertime elegance. In fact, we love summer so much that we’ve come up with the top five reasons to book your wedding with us between April and September 2017…

  1. The Weather

Tying the knot in the warm summer sun is one of the most obvious advantages of a summer wedding, and whilst blue skies are never guaranteed, longer, lighter evenings certainly are.

It’s the perfect time of year to plan an outdoor ceremony or take advantage of our luxurious garden terrace, raising an ice cold glass of bubbly as you look across Skiddaw mountain and the stunning waters of Bassenthwaite Lake!

  1. The Bank Holiday Season

With many bank holidays already in the calender, the summer months are perfect for added attendees. After all, if they’re not already planning on taking time off, we’re sure your friends and family would jump at the chance to take a summer mini-break in the heart of the Lake District to celebrate your marriage – especially handy if you choose to book a weekday wedding!

Or, if your budget will allow it, why not turn your big day into a wedding weekend? At Armathwaite Hall there’s plenty of local activities available to create a ‘must do’ itinerary of events.

  1. The Summer Wardrobe

Booking your ceremony in the summer months gives you endless choice when it comes to dressing the bridal party and guests, with many feeling at their best in the warmer weather.

Imagine finding the perfect wedding dress, just to cover it up with a winter coat? Summer is the season where no rules apply – if you love your legs, show them off with a shorter wedding dress, or opt for a comfortable waistcoat for the groom.

  1. The Theme

Summer is the perfect time of year to make the most of colour, with winter weddings often limited to neutral or jewel tones. Opt for colours that reflect the personality of you and your loved one with in season flowers to match. Some of the most popular blooms peak in the summer months so not only will they look amazing, but they’ll be slightly cheaper too!

Whatever theme you end up going for, complement it with any of our delicious wedding breakfast menus. Choose from refreshing summer pimms and fine BBQ burgers, or indulge on gentle fizz and fresh canapes!

  1. The Photos

Even if you decide to have your ceremony and reception inside, take advantage of the summer sun with professional photographs around our stunning grounds. With breathtakinhg views aplenty, there’s no better place to stroll through green parkland, hand in hand with your new husband or wife!

With selected dates available in Summer 2017, there’s no better time to book your summer wedding at Armathwaite Hall Hotel and Spa.
