Winter Weddings

The most romantic season to get married?

Winter weddings
As we approach the middle of Autumn, our thoughts turn to Winter weddings. Spring and Summer are still the most popular months to get married but we want to know why? Is this tradition? Or to do with the possibility of bad weather stopping guests getting to you? (however as folk travel all over Christmas, this doesn't make sense). There are so many reasons to opt for a winter wedding - roaring log fires, candles, fairy lights, snow….no sweaty faces, no melting make up… And apart from a few days around Christmas, Venues and wedding suppliers often offer impressive discounts (not to mention availability). So why not get married in January and February? You would be doing your friends a favour - something to look forward to in those dreary winter months… and saving yourself a fortune in the process!!

So what to do want from a venue in the Winter? You want rich, sumptuous colours, romantic lighting, luxury, warmth, and most definitely glamour! One Wnitehall Place situated on the Thames, is all of those things.

This is so beautiful
If you are planning a last minute wedding, it is not too late - many venues still do have dates left. We know for sure that Kew Gardens in Richmond does. Imagine the beautiful wintery view you'd have?

Outside of London we've chosen the absolutely gorgeous Elmore court in Gloucestershire - the rich jewel colours - rubies, sapphires and deep velvety greens, the roaring log fires, frost covered grounds….

Contemporary Wedding Venues

For the Urban Bride

Contemporary Wedding Venues

We often write about elaborate or 'off-the-wall themed weddings or wedding venues, but this week wanted to focus on two really contemporary and fresh wedding venues for those of you wanting to inhabit 'urban bride' territory.  If you are a mission for modern you should take a look at Hackney Marshes Centre (in Hackney, London, obvs!) which is a RIBA award winning building a stone's throw from the Olympic Park. This contemporary venue offers imposing minimalist architecture overlooking 340 acres of parkland - and this is in London!!

In terms of styling these sorts of venues, you want to go for clean, simple decor (no bunting!) - it's a great opportunity to go for something with a real wow factor like this amazing table arrangement

And you can even be modern in a rustic way - look at this for a fantastic setting:

Get your inner Princess out..!

Historic Wedding Venues

If you fancy a fairytale wedding - literally - then one of our amazing castles might be able to fulfil your dream.

Dating back to the 13th century, Hever Castle in Kent was once the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, second wife of Henry VIII and formed the unlikely backdrop to a sequence of tumultuous events that changed the course of Britain’s history, monarchy and religion.

Its splendid panelled rooms contain fine furniture, tapestries, antiques and an important collection of Tudor portraits, demonstrating its rich and varied history.  A section of the Castle is dedicated to its more recent history, containing pictures and memorabilia relating to the Edwardian period.

Despite its splendour, Hever Castle is what every child (or bride!) wants a castle to be: crenellated, moated, haunted, with lots of armour and gruesome torture devices.... if you're into that kind of thing! Goth wedding anyone?  If you're going for Hever (and your budget can stretch) then in the summer months you'll have exclusive use of the Astor wing including 21 luxurious bedroom suites, outdoor heated swimming pool, tennis court and croquet lawn. We could only dream of that - and if you're in that situation then a great alternative is
