Winter Weddings at The Vineyard, Berkshire

WeddingRoseBlkIf you are planning your wedding no doubt people are throwing all sorts of well meaning ideas and suggestions your way… so here is one from us that you might not have considered – a Winter Wedding.

The season has warmth, spicy scents in the air and a feel-good buzz that helps set the mood for a very special occasion. Come November the nights are drawing in and the festive period is on the horizon, what could be better than starting the build-up by tying the knot and celebrating Christmas as husband and wife? There again, Christmas has to be one of the best feel-good times of the year so why not set your wedding date right in the middle of that? It is a great opportunity to bring both families together and with the seasonal decorations adding a perfect backdrop to your big day.

Be creative with your menu
When it comes to the menu you could be traditional with turkey and cranberry sauce or pick something from our winter wedding menu that will give your guests a completely different experience to a summer wedding.

Theming your wedding
The winter season also offers a number of unique advantages over the other seasons of the year, which can make your wedding day extra special. With the nights drawing in you can use lighting to great effect, imagine every table having candles and the guests sitting in pools of flickering light with warm glows on their faces.

Winter wedding photography
And the winter weather can create a truly picturesque, romantic backdrop for wedding pictures. The natural light and dramatic clouds are ideal for beautiful, stylish photographs, and in the evening the ambient light escaping from windows provides some great photo opportunities. There is also the potential for snow bringing new meaning to the phrase ‘white wedding’ and the romantic imagery associated with that.

Beat the January blues with a wedding
Post Christmas there seems to be a lull in people’s diaries and your wedding in January could be the event that brings light into their month – plus you will find that suppliers are less busy and keen to offer a favourable price. Or maybe you could hold until Valentine’s Day and make it a very romantic occasion.

Exotic honeymoon destinations
But probably the best reason for having a wedding in this period is a honeymoon somewhere warm! What could be better than leaving a wintry Britain and heading for sunnier climes? It’s the perfect time to book your honeymoon to a fair flung destination like the Caribbean or Thailand.
