The Perfect Winter Wedding

It may be summer outside now, but here at Briar House Barns we are turning our thoughts to the winter weddings that we have booked for later this year and would like to give a little inspiration to our brides who are planning a Winter Wonderland wedding.

In recent years it has been really popular to get married in the summer months and we can completely understand why a couple would look forward to beautiful photographs under blue skies and glorious sunshine. However, we all know that we cannot predict the Great British weather, so some couples are not leaving the weather to chance and are choosing a winter wedding knowing that they will be having most if not all of their celebrations inside.

There is definitely something magical about a winter wedding, with twinkling lights, candles, maybe even a Christmas tree or two and a warm and inviting atmosphere. If you know that you are planning a winter wedding, you know that you will need a venue with space for indoor photographs and for your guests to mingle following the ceremony and before your wedding breakfast. Your photographer will know the best ways to get any photographs in natural light and will know the timings of the golden hour just as the sun sets for that perfect shot. 

We have seen some gorgeous trends for winter weddings over the years here at Briar House Barns. There is something so classic and elegant about winter décor with an abundance of green foliage, bright white floristry, crisp white tablescapes and flickering candlelight. One of the major features of The Great Barn at Briar House Barns is that its size is perfect for multiple Christmas trees to add to the Winterland Wonderland aesthetic, It also provides plenty of room for your guests to gather for their drinks and canape reception following your ceremony.

One of the most important features of any winter wedding will be the stunning food provided for your wedding breakfast. Our recommended caterers will work closely with you to create the most delicious feast to warm you and your guests, before you party the night away on the dance floor in the twinkling lights from the Christmas trees!
