Winter wedding magic

Create your own wonderland


Move aside summer, because winter is our new favourite season for weddings. 

Let us paint you a picture: it’s a cold, crisp winter’s morning. Outside, a fresh layer of white snow is glistening on the ground. Big, beautiful snowflakes lightly fall from the sky above. Your venue is adorned with greens, rich reds and shimmering golds as you ascend down the aisle like an ice queen. After the ceremony, you and your guests can enjoy a warming mulled wine and snuggle around a roaring log fire for a festive-themed reception. 

Just think of how beautiful the wedding photos will be!


Festive decorations

Get creative with Christmas wedding decoration ideas to transform your venue into an elegant, frosty paradise. Winter means candles and fairy lights galore. We’re a sucker for both at any time of the year, but they look especially stunning in the depths of winter. 


Tight budget?

For winter wedding ideas on a budget, combine fairy lights and holly in jam jars to create little festive lanterns to twinkle throughout the night. Place candles all over your venue too to make it look like a scene from a Disney fairy tale. Just dreamy.

Accessorise with seasonal blooms like poinsettia, green ivy, red Christmas roses and freesias. Feeling cheeky? Hang mistletoe around your venue to spread the love and encourage your guests to have a little festive kiss. 

Remember to dress your tables to impress too. Think sparkly table runners, a gorgeous centrepiece, pinecones, more candles and crackers – of course.



Winter wedding reception inspiration

Carry on the winter wonderland theme in your reception by having an extravagant ice sculpture showstopper, or organise a singalong to festive carols to get everyone into the festive spirit. 

To create the ultimate ice palace, drape the venue in white satin, cover seats with luxurious faux furs and provide cosy blankets for guests to wrap themselves in. You could even have a wood-burning fire to keep everyone toasty throughout the night. When it comes to wedding ideas for winter, just have fun with it and do something that celebrates this wonderful season.


Seasonal wedding favours

Buck the trend of traditional wedding favours for winter themed treats such as mistletoe, mini bottles of mulled wine, sparklers or candy canes. A personalised bauble is also a thoughtful Christmas wedding favour idea; every time your guests hang it on their Christmas tree they’ll be reminded of your special day.

There’s something especially romantic about a winter wedding. It’s a season that inspires giving and togetherness – the perfect time of year for you and your partner to promise your love for each other.
