Every bride and groom has an image of how they expect their special day will unfold. Some want extravagant, lively events, whilst others yearn for a more intimate, romantic celebration. Some couples want it to be all about the guests, yet others prepare for a day all about them.
Whatever it is, the decision is yours! And a fundamental aspect of that decision is seasonality.
Are you a spring, autumn, summer, or winter couple?
Are you thinking about a winter wedding?
If you close your eyes and envisage getting married surrounded by soft snow showers, cool colour schemes and subtle yet sophisticated décor, then a winter wedding could be perfect for you.
There’s no doubt – winter weddings are something else. They offer up some of the most magical and romantic atmospheres, whilst encapsulating the vibrancy and spirit that define the season of celebration, festivity and family get togethers.
And the benefits don’t stop there.
Having a winter wedding gives you a unique opportunity to do something different with your big day. Whether you swap the bubbles for mulled wine and spiced cider or offer Christmas themed favours, like gingerbread men, or candy canes, you can plan a wedding with a beautiful and memorable twist!
