FOOD AND DRINKgetting married in winter

Getting married in Winter is a great time for food and drink!  You could have warm mulled wine for your reception drinks, or Hot Chocolate with Bailey’s. When thinking about food, think about warming winter foods such as Tagine’s or a nice rich stew.


Old classic cars don’t like the cold, so they may not be very reliable.  Also, they are not known for their heating!


If you’re shopping for your dress in the Summer, remember that you are getting married in Winter. Choose that beautiful strapless dress – but don’t forget that warm shawl or cape.  It’s hard to look good on photo’s if you’re stood rigid because you are freezing cold!

Don’t get me wrong, getting married in Winter is a beautiful, romantic time of the year.
