Love is love in all the seasons. If you’re a winter person, a winter wedding will feel like home. And while wedding season sees venues and services such as photographers and transport booked well in advance for the warmer months, the off-season (May to September) is often an open diary where you can have what you want exactly when you want it.
The charms of winter wrap around your day, your way, like a warm embrace. Winter food is a celebration of slow cooks and long evenings of local red
wine and whiskys. Lighting is subtle with early nightfall providing more opportunities for moonlight dances, and candlelit rooms festooned with wintery blooms such as tulips, hyacinths, and sweet peas or bold native choices that include waratahs and proteas. The heady scent of daphne, the blooms of magnolia, lily of the valley and winter roses are an ‘aromascape’ of perfumes that add to the feel of your day.
There is no more perfect way to bust your loved ones out of any winter blues than with a winter wedding–a perfect celebration of big love and a new beginning in life. Winter creates so many opportunities for you to show your uniqueness and togetherness. Get creative with the layering of wedding outfits so you can be warm when you need to, yet shed a few layers when its heating up on the dance floor. Imagine the rainbow that’s going to appear right when you’re having photos done, and feel how easy it is to be surrounded by the warmth of people who are sharing your day.
Winter weddings have their own vibe, and so will your day.
