Winter is such a magical time to say ‘I do’ – roaring fires, candles lit, beautiful colour schemes and a very merry atmosphere.
There are so many reasons to embrace the festive season and to host the unique wedding of your dreams! Keep reading for our top ten reasons why a winter wedding is utterly perfect at this country manor house in Herefordshire.
- It’s Incredibly Romantic
The cold, crisp weather in winter provides the perfect backdrop for your fairy-tale event, surrounded by your special family & friends. Add some beautiful twinkling lights, a myriad of candles, a glass of mulled wine (or two!) and create here your very own unique Winter Wonderland. Wrap up and keep those dear to you close – just to keep warm obviously!
- Comfort Food
There are so many delicious and warming winter recipes for your wedding meal. You could opt for a traditional Christmas Dinner or maybe another hearty, satisfying dish? A wedding in the winter gives you the chance to embrace all the produce which the season offers.
Our recommended caterers A to Zest say it best, “When you think of an autumn or winter wedding, fabulous food needs to be at the heart of it, and the food itself needs to be hearty. Feasting sharing menus such as roasted Herefordshire Sirloin of Beef or Slow Roasted Shoulder of Lamb Studded with Rosemary and Garlic; served whole to the table and carved by your nominated guests. It is also hard to beat a fabulous pie. We have recipes such as Steak with Barley and Hereford Pale Ale Gravy or a Mixed Game Pie with a Rich Port Gravy. The Banqueting Hall at Brinsop provides such an elegant and sumptuous backdrop to these menus, perfect for an autumn or winter wedding.”
- Breath-taking Colour Schemes
For a romantic setting at this time of year, think winter whites with dashes of deep red, rich plum and burnt orange. For a more country, rustic feel, what about lots of greenery on our wood beams with faux-fur throws on the chairs in our parlour? Maybe even a sprinkling of mistletoe – just to get people in the mood!
- Keep an Eye on the Pennies
There are often more dates available in winter, plus our prices also decrease for an event during the off-peak season.
- It’s Already a Party
Have you ever considered hosting your wedding on New Year’s Eve? Fireworks, fizz and the festive spirit – what a fabulous combination! And what a wonderful start to the New Year!
- No Worries about the Weather
Summer weather can be unpredictable as we all know! However, winter events are always planned for indoors, along with cosy fires and hot toddies! If you want to take it one step further add in a snow machine – for outdoors obviously! – for a guaranteed ‘white wedding’.
- Winter Fashion
Winter allows you to do so many adventurous things with your wedding attendants’ outfits and with you and your partner’s attire. Deep colours, faux-furs, whites, silvers represented across all attendants and the both of you as the main, happy couple. The options really are endless!
- Winter Photography
Many photographers have said that winter is their favourite time to capture a wedding. Darker skies and shorter days add to the intensity and spectacle of the event.
- Bringing the Family Together
Sometimes it’s difficult to see everyone over the festive period. A winter wedding at Brinsop Court is the perfect excuse to gather relatives and friends together under one roof to share in your magical day.
- The Christmas Spirit
Christmas is always a special time. It’s a time to celebrate, to be thankful for what we have and a time to look forward to the year ahead. What a perfect moment to celebrate your marriage with those dear to you in attendance. And what a fabulous time of year to toast together all of your anniversaries still to come.
