Top Ten Venues for Winter Weddings
by Liz Coggins (January 2014)
It’s a fact winter weddings can be just as romantic and spectacular as those in the height of summer. They just need a little more thought and planning. Its just as important to choose the right venue for a winter wedding as it is the right bridal attire. Try and pick one which is easily accessible and approached from a main road in case of very bad weather. Think log fires, candlelight, warm cosy reception rooms, the smell of pine cones, mulled wine, steaming punch and hot chocolate topped with whipped cream and marshmallows served just before your guests depart. Look for interesting areas for your photographs like staircases, ornate fireplaces, French windows, cloisters and walled gardens to give your winter wonderland wedding that extra special touch.
