As we enter into the Christmas period, we thought it the perfect time to share our very best and favourite winter weddings. Before we get into our list of faves, we thought we'd list a few reasons why we love winter weddings, so if you're debating about what season you'd like to hold your wedding in, you might be persuaded to have it in the chillier months. Winter weddings are all about lighting, deep and dark colours and tones, sparkles, and Christmas! Think fairy lights, holly wreaths, sequin bridesmaid dresses and faux fur complete with a Christmas tree and some mini present favours! You'll find all of this and more in our inspiration below...

Grab a blanket and a hot chocolate because the magical and cosy vibes in these winter weddings are something else!
