Winter wedding dresses and suits

When it comes to your wedding attire, it is important to think about the weather. Whilst we can promise you that Clock Barn will be wonderfully warm and cosy, if you want to get outside for some photos, you’ll need to wrap up. Think about including a wrap, bolero or chunky knit and if you’ve fallen head over heels in love with your wedding shoes, you might also like to think about swapping them if the weather is wet (or snowy!)

For grooms and groomsmen, this is the perfect time of year for warm tweed suits if you’re going for a country style wedding or black tie if you’re planning a sophisticated celebration. To brighten your rustic look, add pops of colour with your tie or pocket square and don’t forget the well-shined shoes and crisp white shirt if you opt for black tie.

Decorations and details for winter wedding

If you’re thinking about flowers for your wedding, you also must think about foliage. Bringing lots of gorgeous greenery into your wedding decorations looks absolutely amazing at this time of year. Wrap foliage garlands around beams and pillars and don’t forget that the fabulous Clock Barn Christmas tree will be in place during the festive season! Whatever flowers you choose to match your theme, think about including lots of seasonal details into your arrangements. Feathers, berries and even luxurious ribbons all make great accompaniments to your florals.

Lighting plays a big part in creating atmosphere at winter weddings and warm lights give a super warm welcome to guests. At Clock Barn we love fairy lights and we have them decorating the barn throughout, but who says you can’t add more hanging from beam to beam throughout the main barn. Light-up signs, huge lit letters or even cool neon additions will also look great at your evening reception. Using different styles of light through the day will help change the mood and don’t forget to have some fun with glowsticks on the dancefloor at the end of the night!

Adding lots of wintery details to your day is definitely a great idea, particularly if these are things that your guests will link with the season or will use on the day. Baskets of blankets, favours of hot cocoa mix, table plans made from beautiful baubles, sprigs of greenery tucked into napkins at place settings and lots of seasonal wreaths as decorations will add a real air of winter to your wedding. Add lots of wintery accessories to your photobooth and think about including some seasonal faves to your wedding playlist. You could also think about adding some winter motifs and designs to your stationery and tie napkins, day of stationery and favours with ribbons to make them look like glorious gifts.

Winter wedding food and photos

A seasonal feast really needs to be at the heart of your celebrations. Here are Clock Barn, we LOVE serving delicious treats to your guests and we know exactly what food and drink works wonderfully well in winter. Think about warm canapes after your marriage ceremony and you could serve these with a warm drink or how about letting guests get involved and create their own cocktails? Opt for a hard lemonade station, a gin bar, a mix-you-own mojito station or a gin bar and have some fun!

A winter wedding breakfast should be full of all of your favourite dishes and if you want to serve a traditional roast or hearty favourites, we can do that too. A warm dessert with lashing of custard will keep everyone happy and don’t forget some irresistible evening food to fuel your party. Burgers, pizzas and brilliant street food options will keep everyone feeling content and cosy, particularly when you serve hot chocolate, with a cheeky shot of booze for the adults! This a sure to be a party that no one will forget.
