Begin by making the most of the dark evenings. To start with, create an enchanting atmosphere with candles and tea lights. Including both candles and fairy lights creates the most magical vibe. Furthermore, you may wish to dine beneath the lights, and also, hold your first dance there.

Tables and seating.

Without a doubt, glitter, and sprigs of fir will compliment a winter themed table setting. In addition mix foliage with candles for a layered effect. Additionally, pinecones are perfect for making winter centre pieces. In order to elevate your seating you can also add sweet greenery wreaths. Lastly, white, delicate, Gypsophila will evoke a snowy feel to your decorations.

It should be noted that dried wedding flowers are a great choice for winter weddings. Also, arrangements of greenery, berries and winter thistles are especially beautiful. Incorporate anemones into your bouquet, they are the perfect seasonal bloom.

Wedding favours

We definitely love snuggly socks, brownie mix jars, chocolate coins and candy canes. They all make especially fab winter wedding favours.  Handmade gifts are wonderful, and for this reason, we particularly love the idea of beautiful handmade Christmas crackers, besides being fun they are also thoughtful too!

Nail your winter wedding look

Particularly important is staying both warm and elegant on your wedding day. Pop on a cardigan or fur jacket for an easy and cute coverup or opt for long sleeves for that extra layer in beautiful style. Due to potentially chilly weather, wearing mittens or chic gloves will keep your hands toasty. also you might want to team knitwear along with skirts and tights for a cosy bridesmaid look. In addition, swap shoes for boots and tights. Also remember you can be bold with your accessories using glitter and velvet fabric.

You can also go bold with your make-up. Don red lipstick and glitter eyeshadow or opt for dramatic and beautiful smokey eye make up.

Get cosy around the firepit!

In particular, to set an evening mood we suggest candles, and twinkling lights in the gardens. This will result in a soft, magical atmosphere. Furthermore, the warming surroundings of the fire pit, in the gardens of Baddow Park House, is the perfect place to chill out between dances. It welcomes friends and family to gather. Here they can talk about the day’s events, drink liqueurs, and toast marshmallows.
