10 things we love about winter weddings

When it comes to planning a wedding, spring and summer dates are usually the first to get snapped up, and for obvious reasons.  But don’t assume that winter weddings have nothing to offer. There are plenty of things to fall in love with about tying the knot out of season and if you’re willing to overlook the inevitable chilly weather, you could just find yourself enjoying a really magical and unique day.

  1. Whimsical table decorations

    Make a statement with winter greenery, pine cones, tea lights and vintage candlesticks. Natural and elegant.

  2. Quirky cakes

    Winter wedding cakes offer so much opportunity to have fun! From adorable gingerbread men to glittery snowflakes or more traditional berry covered cakes with a gold drip. Yum!

  3. Thoughtful little touches

    It’s often the little touches which make a wedding feel personal and special. There are hundreds of ways you can add the sweetest of details to your winter wedding, from cosy blanket boxes, to sparklers, snow confetti and toasted marshmallow stations.

  4. Stunning photo opportunities

    Embrace the cold and head outdoors for some wedding photos with a difference. Crisp, colourful leaves, gentle winter sunlight and if you’re really lucky – snow – can result in the most beautiful and unique images.

  5. Enchanting hues

    Classic winter colours include rich reds, emerald greens and luxurious golds. Or why not go for some of the trending hues such as sage and blush? Whichever colour scheme you choose, winter does not have to equal dull!

  6. Fairy lights

    We think that fairy lights are a good idea at any time of the year but they look especially great in winter. The perfect way to create a romantic atmosphere on a budget -the more the merrier, we say!

  7. Bottoms up!

    Ditch the usual Prosecco and get creative with a winter-inspired cocktail or serve up aromatic mulled drinks instead.

  8. Super stylish

    You don’t have to sacrifice style for warmth. Snuggle up in a gorgeous faux fur wrap for the ultimate glamorous look.

  9. Fantastic favours

    Beautiful, handmade wedding favours are a breeze. Think jars of hot chocolate, mini Christmas trees, toffee apples or tiny gingerbread men.

  10. A sunshine escape

    Going on your honeymoon and enjoying two weeks in the sunshine can be appreciated so much more when it’s cold back home!
