How to Warm Up Your Cotswolds Winter Wedding


Our team of expert wedding coordinators at Ellenborough Park, one of the finest wedding venues in the Cotswolds, bring you their top tips for planning an unforgettable winter wedding…

Welcome Winter with Open Arms

Winter in the UK can be gorgeous and with the promise of snow within the next few months, your special day could be a snow-white winter wonderland, so take advantage of this pretty season. Incorporate winter staples such as labelled pine cones for place settings and dried oranges to decorate.

Keep Your Guests Cosy

Make sure you keep your guests toasty between courses with outdoor heaters, roaring fires, cosy throws or hot drinks on arrival. Our wedding venue in the Cotswolds can provide you with a countryside setting that encompasses all of that and more.

Prepare for the Worst

Although snow-covered scenes are ideal, winter in the UK can also be blustery, chilly and wet. Make sure you have enough indoor space for guests and provide loved ones with brollies – making sure to stick to the colour scheme, of course.

Stay Inside

Moving between multiple venues can prove difficult, especially if the weather is not on your side. Why not say your vows and celebrate in the same place to avoid running into weather delays om your big day? As one of the top Cotswolds wedding venues, we are the proud owners of a number of licensed civil ceremony venues with plenty of room to dine and dance the night away.

Winter Wardrobe

When it comes to dressing for the occasion, think outside the box. Wrap yourself in a faux fur stole and wear chunkier heels or even boots to better cope with the cooler climate. Dressing you and your bridal party for winter doesn’t have to be dowdy – keep it sophisticated and practical to enjoy your day in comfort and style.

Frosty Favours

You can have lots of fun with wedding favours and a celebration in the winter is no different to those in the spring. Give your guests sparklers (great for photographs later in the evening), personalised mittens or little bottles of whiskey (to warm their cockles).

A winter wedding can be just as enjoyable, if not more so than a spring or summer celebration. Our Cotswolds wedding venue can provide you with a warm, cosy and magical solution to a wedding in winter.
