Spring is a time when we normally expect to see lambs jumping in the fields and flowers starting to bloom, yet this year a whitewash of snow has sent parts of the UK into a state of emergency. Knowing just how unpredictable spring weather can be, it’s wise to cover all bases when it comes to your choice of spring wedding venue. Venues with an abundance of space indoors and outdoors are key to your weather back up plan. I’ve selected a few wedding venues that would be perfect for a spring wedding in sunshine, rain or snow!
