Welcome to the enchanting world of winter weddings, where the air is crisp and the surroundings are adorned with a magical touch of frost. If you’re considering tying the knot during the colder months, look no further. As a prestigious venue dedicated to creating unforgettable moments, we’ve compiled a list of ideas to help you with your winter wedding planning and create a celebration that radiates opulence and warmth.
Embrace the charm of winter with elegant decor that reflects the season’s beauty. Think silver and gold accents, fairy lights and plush winter florals like white roses, amaryllis and eucalyptus. Transform our venue into a winter wonderland with chic drapery and embellishments, setting the stage for a romantic celebration. Those getting married in December can also take advantage of our Christmas installation which features a beautiful vintage bar and dancefloor.
Warm and Cosy Ambience
Combat the winter chill by creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. Incorporate luxurious faux fur throws on chairs for guests to cosy up with. Over the years at Kent House Knightsbridge, we’ve planned numerous winter weddings, bringing the venue to life through ambient lighting, such as scented candlelit centerpieces and soft overhead lights, adding a touch of intimacy to the celebration.
Working with your choice from our list of leading London caterers, craft a menu that celebrates the flavours of the season. Indulge your guests with rich and hearty dishes, such as braised short ribs, butternut squash soup and decadent desserts like spiced apple tarts. Compliment the culinary experience with warm beverages like mulled wine and hot chocolate stations adorned with marshmallows and peppermint sticks.
Signature Winter Cocktails
Create a signature cocktail that captures the essence of winter. Consider offerings like cranberry-infused champagne cocktails, mulled wine spritzers or hot toddies. Elevate the experience by serving these drinks in personalised glassware or mugs that guests can take home as mementos.
Enhance the celebratory atmosphere with entertainment that befits the season. Consider hiring a live band or string quartet to play classic winter tunes. Alternatively, surprise your guests with a skilled ice sculptor creating bespoke sculptures or a dance floor adorned with faux snow for a magical touch.
Winter-Themed Photo Opportunities
Capture the enchantment of your winter wedding with carefully curated photo opportunities. Create a winter-themed photo booth with props like faux fur wraps, vintage skis and festive signs. Ensure your photographer captures the ethereal beauty of the season, whether against a backdrop of twinkling lights or under a blanket of falling snow.
Set the tone for your luxurious winter affair with stunning invitations. Opt for designs that incorporate metallic accents, winter motifs and a touch of sparkle. Tell your unique story by creating a bespoke design; we recommend Cutture for the ultimate in wedding stationery sophistication.
Special Touches for Guests
Show your appreciation to guests with thoughtful winter-themed favours. Personalised blankets, monogrammed gloves or custom-made ornaments are not only functional but also serve as cherished reminders of your special day.
