While there’s no denying the beauty of a summer wedding, winter weddings are becoming increasingly popular. With the promise of cosy fires and intimate gatherings, not to mention stunning winter landscapes and festive menus, there are many reasons why a winter wedding might just be the perfect choice for you. In this blog post, we’ll delve into seven compelling reasons why you should consider a winter wedding for your special day.

Stunning Scenery

Winter provides a stunning backdrop for a wedding. Think  glittering snow, frost-covered trees, and sparkling lights creating a magical atmosphere. Whether you choose to exchange your vows in a beautiful, historic church or on the grounds of your venue (weather permitting!), the winter landscape provides a picturesque setting for your special day.

Cosy Atmosphere

Winter weddings have a warm and cosy vibe that suits couples who prefer a relaxed and intimate celebration. You can enjoy toasting by the fireplace, sharing warm drinks, and indulging in hearty foods with your loved ones. Besides, enchanting decorations like twinkling lights, snowflakes, and festive garlands can add a touch of magic and festivity to your special day.

Seasonal Food Options

The winter season can be an amazing time for more hearty options to grace your table. Consider hot bowls of soup and bread, roast meats with roast potatoes a root vegetables, and a winter Eton mess! Hearty, filling foods with a good dose of class can make for a very special wedding menu indeed.

Festive Decorations

Winter weddings provide an opportunity to add a touch of magic and festivity to your day. Whether you choose to decorate with traditional holiday colours or opt for a more modern and minimalist look, winter provides a beautiful setting for your wedding day.


The winter season provides an opportunity for couples to serve warm and cosy drinks that are perfect for this time of year. From classic options like mulled wine and spiced cider to more modern twists like bourbon or whiskey cocktails, there are endless possibilities to choose from. A hot chocolate bar with a variety of toppings is also a great way to add a personalized touch.

Availability of Vendors

Winter is typically a slower season for weddings, making it easier to book suppliers and secure your dream venue. This can also result in more availability and, sometimes, better pricing. Whether you’re working with a wedding planner or planning the day yourself, a winter wedding provides an opportunity to secure your dream suppliers and make the most of your budget.

Opportunity To Be Festive

Finally, a winter wedding offers a unique opportunity to bring in some festive cheer to your special day.  A December wedding provides the perfect chance to embrace the holiday spirit and make your wedding day even more memorable. Chat to your caterer about putting together a festive menu using turkey, goose, pigs in blankets, Brussel sprouts, Christmas pudding, eggnog or any of your favourite festive flavours!
