Christmas is a magical time of year and a winter wedding at Rockliffe Hall can be made extra special with the elegant Christmas decorations throughout the resort, but your winter wedding can continue into the other months too! Weather is always in the back of your mind, regardless of the time of year but by having your wedding out of season you are already prepared for the worst. You might even be pleasantly surprised by some sunshine! I associate winter with cold, dark nights snuggled up with my husband – a winter wedding creates a naturally romantic setting.
Winter weddings are crying out for sparkle and diamante brooches for example. The extensive range of sashes available to complement your colour theme make dressing your wedding so much easier. Our suppliers are on hand to deliver on the morning of your wedding and our dedicated team assist in making your rooms look amazing.
Black tie makes a winter wedding look spectacular – your guests will put so much effort into looking fabulous on your wedding day! I mean why shouldn’t they get dressed up, it’s your special day after all! And why not add some canapés to your drinks reception? Perhaps try one of our lovely wintery additions like our legendary beef and Yorkshire pudding canapé.
Candles are a must. They’re such a romantic touch and bring elegance (plus a lovely aroma) to the rooms. There’s nothing like a Neom candle if you ask me.
It’s also worth considering winter themed arrival drinks. Your guests would appreciate a warm, comforting drink when they come in out of the cold. A Mulled wine, Winter Pimms or Baileys hot chocolate by a roaring open fire would go down a treat, not forgetting the marshmallows.
While the vintage theme is still hot right now you could choose a cake design to make a real statement. Your cake maker’s design skills are never ending so let them do their thing. They love nothing more than a challenge and the end product will blow you away. The lace, the delicate icing, the glitter... and don’t forget the different flavour cakes, YUM!
The winter months in the UK couldn’t be further away from some temperatures around the world so escaping our wonderful wet winters to a tropical location couldn’t be a more perfect end to the celebrations. And who isn’t jealous of a natural winter tan?
At Rockliffe Hall, we can make your wedding day amazing at any time of year. We can make you forget the cold while you mingle in the cosiness of the Old Hall Arches, be wowed by entering the magnificent Rockliffe Suite decorated to the nines and celebrate in 5 red star luxury. What more could you wish for?
