Winter weddings can be magical, with cooler weather, lush green gardens and softer light for photographs. However, there are some special considerations. For instance, when selecting your menu remember that as a general rule the colder the weather the more people eat but the less they drink. You should bring your ceremony time forward compared with the warmer months to ensure you have sufficient light for photos, particularly if it is an overcast day. The weather will also be cooler and potentially wet, so brining some umbrellas is usually a good idea. Most importantly, you need to ensure your venue has a wet weather alternative to every part of your day. Where will your garden ceremony be held indoors if it is raining? Where will you be able to have photographs taken? Where will your guests go? All practical considerations to help ensure your winter wedding runs smoothly.
