Winter in the Lake District is a special time. The frost that lied over the fells gives your wedding backdrop a magical glistening feel. The crunch of snow and leaves underfoot and the crisp bright winter sun gives a very magical wintery feel to any wedding in this season.
Winter weddings often get blurred with Christmas Weddings, but Winter is so much more than the festive season. November, December, January, and February are stunning in the Lake District and the spectacular scenery along with the fact that weddings are les expensive in the winter makes for a perfect time to tie to knot.
Broadoaks as an exclusive wedding venue in the Lake District is the perfect setting for a lake District winter wedding. Nestled in its own grounds you can make use of the house and the grounds as much as you choose, the real fires and country house styling lends itself beautifully to winter wedding themes. Whether you are going for all white wedding glam or rustic après ski, Broadoaks is the perfect wedding venue for you.
Here are some magical winter wedding ideas to help with your planning:
Winter Wedding Ideas
Monochrome Table Settings – While black is not always the first colour you think of when it comes to weddings it looks spectacular set against an otherwise all white scheme, and very glamorous. With a rush to all things 1920’s a chic monochrome winter wedding is very much on trend.
Fairy Lights are Magical – Affordable and magical, you can truly transform any space with the addition of lots and lots of fairy lights. You can wrap them around banisters, and beams, put them inside lanterns on tables and floors or hang them for a truly magical mood.
Jewel Tones – Snug and luxe is what comes to mind when you think about jewel tones to decorate with and that is just what you need on a fresh winters’ day. Jewel tones bring in so much warmth and feel rich, think velvet napkins, jewel coloured candle holders and rich coloured table runners.
Warming Your Guests – If it is a chilly day for your wedding then keeping your guests warm is a top priority. Include a blanket box so guests can get one if they feel the chill or give each guest a blanket as their wedding favour to take home with them.
Go Neon – If you want an eighties vibe to your wedding then getting neon lights (or faux neon which is much more affordable) to have a signs or décor at your wedding would look and feel amazing against a winter backdrop.
Decorate with Dried Fruits – Centrepieces and décor made from dried fruits looks amazing. Choose blood oranges, or slices of apples and pears along with blackberries and herbs and spices to not only make your wedding décor look, but also smell amazing.
Embrace the Fireplace – Broadoaks has lovely fireplaces and decorating them, so they look lovely while guests sit around them chatting is a great idea.
Fantastic Texture – Adding as many different textures to your décor as possible looks incredible at a winter wedding. Consider sheepskins as table runners, faux fur and velvet, tartans, and chunky knits in combination for a luxe and wintery feel.
Winter gives you as much scope to decorate and express yourself as any other wedding season, with the added advantage that bot the venue and the suppliers are likely to be more affordable and available than at other times of the year!
