The perks of booking a winter wedding date

The perks of booking a winter wedding date.

It’s no secret, we love a winter wedding! The winter season may after all be the coldest but the cosy, intimate vibe of a winter wedding celebration makes this milestone occasion extra special and romantic. Whether you’re looking to bag a last-minute date for this winter or are thinking ahead to 2024 and beyond, understanding if deviating from the usual high-season wedding date and embracing a winter wedding in all its glory is right for you will certainly be your thought process.

Winter no doubt comes with its challenges – the cooler, more unpredictable weather being one of them – but with the right venue and help from a dedicated team of trusted suppliers you can overcome the hurdles and enjoy all the perks of marrying in winter. So, what can you look forward to when booking a winter wedding date?

The cosiness of the season

The winter season really is as cosy as it gets. With this in mind, the falling temperatures and darker evenings shouldn’t be seen as negatives.

From warming open fires and fairy-lit scenes to spaces draped in touchably soft throws and a well-placed hot chocolate station, there are lots of ways to embrace the cosiness and overwhelming beauty of winter at your wedding.

Stunning backdrops both indoors and out

The lighting indoors isn’t just made for romance. The natural lighting outdoors, particularly if you’re lucky enough to get snow or even frost on your winter wedding day, makes flawless wedding photos easier to achieve. The crisp, cold days of winter have a certain magic to them too, just be sure to cover up to keep those chills at bay.

The lack of humidity in the air will also preserve your look with minimal touch-ups to ensure wedding day perfection.

More venue and supplier availability

In addition to getting the support you need from our dedicated team – including your very own Personal Wedding Manager – you’ll need help from several wedding suppliers to make your big day dreams come true. While during summer, late availability offers and reduced rates are pretty much unheard of, come winter, most venues and suppliers have more room in their diaries, and it’ll work wonders for your wedding budget!

Here Hello! explains how much you can really save by booking a winter wedding date:

“Many venues offer ‘out of season’ discounts or lower package rates. You will still get the same lovely venue and catering, but it will be for less than you would pay from May to September. When comparing the hire fee for a Saturday in winter versus a Saturday in the summer, the saving could be as much as £4k! Let’s face it, that’s the cost of a honeymoon. Win, win for everyone!”

Beautifully decorated spaces

The winter season is a theme in itself, with the festive touches already available with a well-dressed venue saving you lots of time and money in the decorations department.

Here at St Audries Park, we deck the halls in early winter to ensure all the couples marrying with us around the Christmas period have a beautifully decorated space that’s ready to go. We do however encourage our couples to add their own personal touches to the scheme to make their winter wedding day their own.
