Frodsham, Chester (PRWEB UK) 22 April 2013
Summer’s popular for several reasons, including school holidays, more sunshine and warmth, but more importantly – weddings. Now that the clocks have gone forward, it’s officially British summertime; as well as the perfect time to get planning for a summer wedding, according to Tying the Knot.
As one of the UK’s leading wedding experts, Tying the Knot is the ultimate resource for any bride-to-be. Providing a selection of special offers as well as the latest designs on bridalwear, Tying the Knot reported that the majority of its customers found summer to be the most popular season to get married.
A spokesperson from Tying the Knot remarked: “With incentives such as sunshine, bank holidays and hot weather encouraging a greater range of wedding venues as well as bridal gowns, to hear summer being the favourite time of year to get married comes as no surprise. Let’s just hope the weather improves, otherwise we might be seeing a completely different statistic!”
In regards to the options of UK wedding venues, Tying the Knot found that most of its brides-to-be favoured a church or place of worship as the number one spot for marriage ceremonies. With many couples looking to carry on the family tradition of their parents getting married in a church, additionally the location – usually central, featuring greenery and stunning architecture – makes for the perfect venue.
“Other venues that proved popular were hotels and historic houses – but with only a small minority favouring either a marquee or beach wedding, it seems that the British summertime has a lot to answer for,” laughed the spokesperson.
“But what did surprise me is that out of the top five most popular honeymoon destinations, the UK came fourth – with mainland Europe coming in first! I suppose that straight after a summer wedding, it’s best to make the most of the summer weather – and with couples looking to save money, may just stay in the UK and soak up the sunshine while it lasts.”
With a huge choice of locations to choose from, couples can opt for the following Tying the Knot wedding venues: Yorkshire, Greater Manchester, London as well as Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
