6 Romantic Winter Wedding Ideas

Inspiration - 18.12.18

With Christmas just around the corner, we’re dreaming of festive winter weddings. We hope you’ll be inspired by these romantic winter wedding ideas, just the thing for your Christmas wedding at Braxted Park.

1. Marry by Candlelight

Say your vows in our elegant Orangery, creating a romantic ambience by asking your florist to add candles to your floral arrangements. Classical music adds to a romantic atmosphere – you might even consider having a string quartet or a harpist. Be sure to choose some equally tear-jerking readings!

2. Say it With Flowers

Red is a fabulous colour choice for a winter wedding. When it comes to flowers, there is perhaps nothing more romantic than a red rose. You might decide to incorporate them in to your bouquet, ask your bridesmaids to carry a single stem or walk down the aisle on a carpet of rose petals. If you’d prefer not to have red, white roses are another option for a stunning colour scheme.

3. Create a Winter Wonderland

If you’re marrying close to Christmas, a Christmas tree is a must. You might even choose to hang favours from the tree instead of traditional baubles. Twinkling lights are always romantic so use fairy lights and candles wherever possible. Bring the outside in with lush green foliage and berries – there’s nothing we love more than a Christmas wreath! Finally, if you’re looking to add romance, you’ll need to hang some mistletoe. You might even choose it as the perfect prop for a romantic winter photo booth.

4. Be Personal

Personalisation is always a great way to add a bespoke touch to your special day. As you dine in The Pavilion, incorporate beautiful place cards, add a monogram to your wedding cake and consider adding your wedding date or initials to your wedding favours. You might even serve a personalised cocktail… something warming and elegant for the winter season.

5. A Warming Winter Menu

Food can certainly be romantic and, in the winter, it’s a lovely idea to choose a warming menu with seasonal ingredients. Our chefs will delight in helping you choose your perfect menu… of course, chocolate has to feature in there somewhere along the way!

6. Celebrate in Style

As day turns to evening, illuminate the dancefloor with giant ‘LOVE’ letters – the ultimate in romance. Create a festive playlist and take to the floor. The romantic theme doesn’t end here… why not put a romantic poem and a heart-shaped cookie on the pillow of every guest spending the night at Braxted Park.
