What is Needed For a Winter Wedding?

Winter is a magical time of year and many couples dream of a powdery-white countryside backdrop on their wedding day. However, while snow is a possibility (a slim possibility, perhaps!), you must remember that the weather varies depending on your geographical location. In the south of the UK, you may have mild temperatures during winter months, while the north UK regularly experiences temperatures around freezing or below during winter. If you’re hoping to have gorgeous snow on your wedding day, then be sure to choose a location that typically has snow on your wedding date. Some of the snowiest areas of the UK include – County Durham, Shetland Islands, and the Scottish Highlands. Keep in mind that a heavy snowstorm could disrupt guests’ travel plans, particularly if they’re travelling long distances or flying in. Due to the uncertainty surrounding the weather, it’s advisable to plan to have your wedding ceremony and reception inside when organising a winter wedding despite how beautiful the gardens may be!

If you’re planning a winter wedding, you’ve likely imagined having your photographs outside on a crisp winter day, or with a dusting of snow if you’re lucky! Make the most of your venue grounds by considering the best locations for wedding photographs. You could even ask your photographer to visit the venue before the big day to familiarise themselves with the venue and plan your wedding shoot. This is especially important if they haven’t been to the venue before. The friendly venue staff can always lend a hand! Days are much shorter in winter, so be sure to add lots of outdoor lights like candles and fairy lights to create a warm, magical atmosphere in the evening. You could also create an outdoor relaxation area using hay bales and benches and set up some fun outdoor wedding games to provide entertainment for your guests. These can be moved inside if the weather is bad on the day.

Choosing a venue is one of the most important decisions you will make in the wedding planning process. Hence why it’s so important to do your research and choose the perfect venue that aligns with your vision. There are many different factors to consider when picking a venue. This includes location, facilities, rates, capacity, catering options, and layout. You can find a massive variety of different wedding venues – from romantic barns to elegant manor houses and cosy restaurants, and while we adore manor houses and everything that comes with them, it may not work with your idea. Make sure you visit a variety of wedding venues to help narrow down your options and determine which setting will suit your particular style and taste. You should also consider your guests’ experience when selecting a wedding venue. You may find a stunning venue, but realise it’s in a location that’s difficult for guests to get to. In this situation, you need to weigh up the advantages and disadvantages to determine whether it’s worth choosing a particular venue for your wedding day.
