Wedding Trends 2021

With nuptials back on the calendar, let’s make sure your planning is up-to-date with the latest wedding trends.

Outdoor weddings
Until at least 17 May, wedding celebrations in England will take place outside. So, it’s fortunate that alfresco weddings now are the height of fashion.

At Coltsford Mill, we’re blessed with 12 acres of beautiful gardens and grounds – not to mention our large covered terrace, adjacent to the spacious Watermill Barn.

If you’re looking for a barn wedding venue in the Surrey countryside with plenty of outdoor space, you’ve found your dream partner in Coltsford Mill.

Keeping it local
For many people, the pandemic has highlighted the importance of our local communities. Now we’re seeing a rise in couples wanting to support small businesses, by using only wedding suppliers based in their local area.

If you want to follow this trend, check out our extensive list of inspiring local recommended suppliers.

Together through technology
There are lots of ways that modern technology, such as Zoom, can help you to cross the miles and involve even far-flung loved ones in your big day.

Super-fast broadband is now on offer throughout our venue. We can also provide a projector, so videos from absent friends can be broadcast during your ceremony.

Also, we’ve noticed that many couples are finding offline ways to include people who can’t travel to the wedding. Among our favourites is the couple who printed out photos of their missing loved ones, made the images into bunting and hung it around the venue!

Luxurious lighting
Nothing creates a romantic ambiance like fairytale lighting. At Coltsford Mill, you’ll find that a beautifully lit backdrop for your cake table is included in your package, along with lights adorning every beam in the Watermill Barn.

It’s time to get excited again and start planning your beautiful 2021 wedding!
