The Beauty of having a Winter wedding
Generally – the wedding season is considered to be all the beautiful sunny, warm months of the year from May through to the end of September.
You can make the most of the good weather and out door backdrops for your photographs and ceremony, entertain your guests in beautiful gardens and grounds and allow the younger guests the freedom to enjoy the space that many venues offer.
But not everyone wants to get married in summer, and lets face it, it can be a stress you can do without – wondering if the weather is going to be kind to you and NOT rain so you can make the most of everything!!
A Christmas Wedding
Sophie and Matt were married the Saturday before Christmas – I suppose some might say getting married so close to Christmas adds stress at a time that is already very busy with added pressures.
But some might embrace the opportunity to have a double celebration – which is exactly how Matt and Sophie thought of it.
They returned to Exeter University where they had met and celebrated their wedding with family and friends in the university chapel singing Christmas carols, the pews adorned with heavy seasonal foliage garlands and a backdrop altar bedecked with Christmas trees decorated with ribbons and white roses.
Dressed with a shawl for warmth they managed to have photographs taken outside in the beautiful university gardens.
Re-use your wedding flowers for the reception
Re-using the pew garlands as table runners interspersed with festive twinkly candles on their tables gave them the intimacy and magic that only happens at Christmas (and when you get married!!)
