Choosing the Perfect Season


Many couples know the exact month and season they wish to marry in, having carefully thought it out to complement their wedding styles and colour schemes. However, some are unsure as to their preferred season so we recommend thinking about the advantages of the different seasons and how they each can offer a special and unique wedding experience.

Summer Wedding

This is no doubt one of the most popular times of the year to get married due to the gorgeous weather, vibrant colours and extravagant outdoor venues worldwide, not to mention long summer afternoon and evenings, which means more time for celebrating!

If you are thinking about having a bright and colourful wedding, what better way is there than to have a wedding than in summer where the floral colours are so striking!

Aspects to consider:

Heat waves – whilst most of us enjoy warm weather and the chance to relax in the sunshine, heat waves can make a wedding outdoors a little stressful if not properly thought out. Be sure to consider appropriate and alternative dress code attire in the event that a heat wave decides to accompany your big day.

Peak season – As this is a popular season to wed, availability may be limited, especially with outdoor venues, so do be sure to be an early worm and secure your wedding date in sooner rather than later! Consider pricing at this popular time too.

Winter Weddings

Another popular season to marry is throughout the winter months due to the festive celebrations and romantic scenery of outdoor lighting and decorations, helping to create an intimate and magical feel! Outdoor lighting, including tea lights and fairy lights is a favourite of ours and a popular trend in the wedding industry, particularly in winter months when more light is often required!

Aspects to Consider

Poor weather – Changes in weather at the last minute may restrict the use of outdoor venues, so be sure to have a backup plan in place. Whilst having a winter snowy setting is ideal for a couple seeking the ultimate romantic backdrop, extreme weather may cause disruption to travel and plans and not to mention, can be freezing!

So, if you are seeking a wintery wedding, be sure to plan accordingly and bring some wellies in the event you need to tread on snow!

Spring Weddings

This is ideal if you are perhaps wanting to marry with a pretty outdoor setting or a natural scenic backdrop. This season, known for its flower blossoming, produces gorgeous smells and pretty leaves – ideal for anyone seeking a wedding theme of natural tones and light colour palettes – having fresh flowers that match your bridal parties wedding dresses, what more could you want?!

Another perk of getting married in the spring months is that outdoor venues are often favoured with the mild weather and may be less expensive than prices in peak times.

Things to consider

Allergy season – for some, this season really brings about their allergies, so if you’re a bride or groom who suffers from hay fever, this may be an important consideration.

Weather is never guaranteed – While the chances of weather are likely to be better than in the winter months, weather is never guaranteed so do not fully rely on it when planning your day and make provisions to accommodate for sudden, last minute weather spoilers.

Autumn Weddings

Fall weddings are becoming more and more popular due to the seasonal foods and rich tone of vivid colours, helping to create warming wedding vibes. Another reason couples favour this season to wed is due to the fact that venues are often cheaper than at peak times of the year and there are typically less holidays around this time, meaning guests are more likely to be available to attend.

Aspects to Consider:

Whilst weather is mild, it can still be unpredictable and a backup plan should be in place if considering a wedding ceremony or reception outside.

In summary (excuse the pun!), whether you are a bride or groom who knows the exact season you wish to marry in, or if you are a couple still waying out your options, there are a lot of considerations to think about when choosing a season and it can be helpful to establish all the perks of each one to ensure you choose what best suits you.

Dear Love Lydia...

Lydia was my wedding co-ordinator and I couldn't have asked for anyone better! Communicating was very easy, she always responded and gave great ideas and recommendations. I don't think we would have enjoyed our wedding day without Lydia and her team ensuring everything was perfect. The day run incredibly smoothly and Lydia's ability to stay calm in the most stressful situations is such a blessing. She is extremely professional and such a wonderful person! I'm so happy to have had her during the lead up to the wedding and on the day! THANK YOU so much Lydia! I highly recommend getting a wedding coordinator as qualified as Lydia!!

Vita & Kunal

I stumbled across your website whilst doing a night shift at work. I was blown away by the elegance of the layout and thought this is exactly what I want. Honestly I thought you wouldn’t be available but decided to email in hope.

When I spoke to you, I loved your honesty and advice. Immediately I knew you were the one. I left feeling I can trust Lydia with my wedding and know any suggestions will be in my best interest. I also felt although I’ve only gone for partial planning that you would treat my wedding equally the same as if I had gone for the full wedding planning package. But more importantly I feel your style is exactly what I want my wedding to portray - elegance, fabulousness and romance! 

So thank you for agreeing! I am so excited to have you and your team be a part of my wedding.

Alicia & Faddy

Thank you SO, SO, SO very much from the bottom of our hearts for helping to put together a magical wedding day for us! The day was absolutely incredible and everything we had ever dreamed of (and more). We are so, so, so grateful for all of your hard work and effort over the last several years. Your inputs regarding choice of venue and other details were impeccable and really helped to 'wow' everyone! Your help managing all of the partners was invaluable and we are both incredibly grateful for every single thing your team have done for us. We cannot thank you enough!

Thank you, thank you for a wonderful and magical day!!

Serena & Peter

Thank you Love Lydia and team.

Can’t explain how perfect Lydia was from the beginning until the end of the wedding! Very hands on and professional on every event. She will make your day extra special and worth remembering .🥂


Tugay & Mandy

Absolutely amazing!!

Like many others, we had to move our wedding. Originally planning a sun filled wedding on the rolling hills of Italy's vine yards the idea of moving it to a gloomy location in the UK was something neither me nor my husband wanted. We didn't want to wait another year or more... so we contacted Love Lydiaand the ease of our first meeting was what initially told us we were doing the right thing.

She asked what we were like as individual people and together, how we met and how we fell in love. Lydia wanted to know us, and this made planning the wedding so much more personal. From the minute we picked Lydia to be our wedding planner we did look back.

In the space of 2 months she found the perfect venue and organised a wedding exceeding our expectations. She bought Italy's vineyards to the UK, including the sunshine!

All we did was provide her our Pinterest board and she covered the rest! She even included little details which we mentioned in our first meeting with her.

Lydia understood our specific needs, as well as telling us what we needed when planning a wedding in less than 8 weeks.

On the wedding day, Lydia was there from early morning until the party ended. Both of our families were able to enjoy the wedding without the stress of it. We couldn't have wished for a better day and would recommend Love Lydia to anyone 🍋

Avani & Pratik

Lydia and her team are incredible and are all about the fine details. After everything the world went through with covid, we were very anxious about our wedding and we just wanted everything to be perfect. Thanks to Lydia and her team our day was perfect, everything looked beautiful, it was a dream. Lydia took care of our day and we could just relax and enjoy the party. I would recommend them to anyone getting married and would use Lydia for any event we were having.

Sophie & Luke

I cannot rate Lydia and her team highly enough, so am sending another review! They understood our vision from day one and recommended a fantastic team of suppliers who would bring it all to life perfectly! We got exactly what we wanted - from the flowers to the photography to the cake and much, much more - everything was spot on! Lydia and Frankie were very responsive and helpful in the lead up to the day and were on hand to give their advice and answer any questions or concerns I had. The coordination on the day itself was first class (which was no easy task considering the size of the venue and various things happening throughout the day!), but Lydia and her team made sure it all ran smoothly and it all made for an absolutely wonderful day! We honestly can’t thank Lydia, Frankie and the team enough for all their hard work, support and professionalism throughout - we had a day filled with amazing memories and I couldn’t have asked for a better team to bring it all together! Thank you so much Lydia, Frankie and team for making our day so special ☺️

Ceyhan & Seyit

I can’t recommend Lydia highly enough! She thought about every aspect of the day, leaving no area unthought of. She and Frankie executed our special day to the highest standard and were such a huge help in the lead up to the big day! We are very grateful to have Lydia and Frankie as our wedding support network and we have the best memories from our wedding! Lydia and Frankie really listened to our wants, needs and concerns and covered all of them with great professionalism. Their communication throughout was also fantastic!

A huge thank you from Emma and Josh! :)

Emma & Josh

You guys did such an amazing job helping out the months before the wedding and on the day as well!

Your team really helped the day to run smooth and because of that I honestly just got to enjoy my wedding (which not many brides get to do). My husband & I are so thankful for all the time & effort you put in to making sure our day was smooth and run perfect for us and worked with us for any changes/inconveniences!

I’ve told all my family about you & your team and for the weddings to come, I will recommend you to all!

Again thank you so much for everything and helping to make the day super special!

Aman & Amanveer

We just wanted to say thank you so much to yourself and the whole team for all your hard work and help with the wedding, it was absolutely perfect and stunning and we were just blown away with everything! It really was the happiest day of our lives!

Ceyhan and Seyit

Thank you very much for helping to organise the most gorgeous wedding for my lovely daughter and son-in-law. You have done us proud, and your team and everyone involved has done us proud. What an amazing wedding.. everyone has been phoning and texting and saying it’s the best wedding they have been to. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


We were extremely fortunate to have engaged Lydia to plan our wedding last summer. She and her team were absolutely fantastic. It really made a huge difference having her assistance and support through all the planning. On the day of the wedding itself, she and her staff executed the day flawlessly. You really cannot go wrong with Lydia and to top it all, she’s an absolutely wonderful person.

Kyoko & Tosin

Lydia is amazing at what she does and we couldn't have asked for a better person to help us through the challenges of a 2020 wedding. She has helped and supported us through the whole postponement of it to next year and we have complete confidence in her - when Lydia says she is going to do something, we don't even have to worry anymore! She has great contacts in the industry which has made the whole process so much easier having a marquee wedding, where you tend to need more suppliers.

Fiona & Richard

We are so pleased with the wonderful way everything was organised and co-ordinated on the day. Words just aren’t enough to convey our thanks. You made our day just perfect

Melanie & Lewis

Jay and I would like to thank you for planning our daughter Sarah and son-in-law Paul’s wedding day. It really took the weight off of our shoulders, allowing us to truly enjoy the beautiful occasion. Your nothing-is-too-much attitude throughout the whole planning stage and on the day, made us feel totally at ease and we couldn’t believe how relaxed we all were on the day itself! This was especially so because your professional approach put us totally at ease from our very first meeting. Many thanks, you are well worth your weight in gold!

Susan & Jay

Thank you Lydia and your team for the most unforgettable day. It was everything we dreamt of and more. Even though we commissioned your services a little after the initial arrangements were made, we felt that your hands-on approach was very reassuring and made for a magical, stress-free day. Thank you again.

Debbie & Jo

We don’t know how we would have done it without you! Your professional, yet friendly approach, really put us at ease during the whole fourteen month process. Thank you so much for arranging our wedding over four days in Albania. Your patience was extremely appreciated and your resourcefulness was second to none. Our guests were completely blown away with the beautiful venue and styling and are still talking about it several months later. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and will never arrange another event without Love Lydia.

Antuela & George

I hired Lydia as my wedding coordinator for my wedding in Sardinia. I had to take her with me as there was no one better in my opinion. I have to say that Lydia has such a variety of skills and gives 110% effort into everything she does. Lydia was available to me day and night and nothing I asked for was too much trouble. Lydia treated my wedding like it was her own and wanted to make sure everything was as perfect as it could be for me. My family and friends have said it was the best wedding they had ever been too!

Christie & Danny

As the groom with an amazingly organised wife I was originally against using a wedding planner but I’m not ashamed to admit I was wrong. Lydia was absolutely amazing. Not only did she help get our dream venue on the day that we wanted, she was brilliant all throughout the whole process. Constantly in contact and not mention on the actual day of the wedding how amazingly organised and professional she was. Liaising between all parties involved and keeping everything running smoothly.

Francesa & Roberto

Just to say a belated thank you for all your kind help throughout our wedding preparations. Your attention to detail and flexibility helped us to create the most perfect day of our lives. We had an incredible day making so many treasured memories. It was quite exhausting to be honest (!) but you took a lot of pressure off us which was super. Thank you again, best wishes.

Amelia & Oliver

Thank you so much for all of your support & hard work on the lead up to our wedding day & on the day itself!

We really appreciated all of the advice you were able to offer & for the recommendations.

Thanks again!

Charlotte & Alex

Thank you to Lydia and team for helping ensure a perfect wedding day for my wife and I. We, of course, highly recommend Lydia and her team as great assets for your wedding planning and on day coordination needs. They are professional, caring, and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks again Love Lydia Weddings & Events.

Gessica & Chris

A HUGE Thank you for overseeing our wedding day, you made it all feel effortless, and I speak on behalf of MANY people when I say what an outstanding job you did. We had an incredible day - I never imagined it would be that good. I loved every minute! Much love

Siobhan & Mick

We had the most amazing day imaginable! Although initially wanting to plan the day ourselves, it soon became apparent that more meticulous and time-consuming planning was required. Thank goodness for Love Lydia! No attention to detail was spared, allowing us to enjoy our magical day to the fullest. Everyone was wonderful and made us feel very special.

Monica & John

Nothing was too much trouble, Lydia was always at hand to alleviate any worries and ensured that any last minute nerves were quickly set aside. Thank you so much. We would not hesitate to recommend you.

Amy & Tim

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for all that you did to help arrange the most perfect wedding reception for us. We wanted to create the quintessential English Country Summer Wedding in Devon and you did! You were so great to deal with all the way through and delivered everything you promised, from the dressing of the luxury marquee down to the finer details. Thank you for making the experience so easy and enjoyable and taking the stress out of organising our special day!
