White Wedding Photography’s Top 5 Winter Wedding Tips

Winter weddings are popular with brides that want to do something a little different or are trying to save some money by getting married off season.

1.Think about the cost. Wedding venues are cheaper in the winter, they are cheaper again mid-week. We also offer mid-week deals with our photography packages.

2.Think about timings. Remember that it will be dark from about 4 pm onwards, so if you want your photographs in daylight you will need to have an earlier ceremony time – I would suggest no later than 2 pm. For a truly wintry feel you could incorporate the earlier evenings into your wedding by having your ceremony at dusk.

3. Winter flowers. Check with a local florist early in your planning process to see what flowers are available in your area during the winter. A few popular examples are Roses, Evergreen, Poinsettia, Amaryllis and Holly.

4. Make sure you and your guests are warm. There’s nothing worse than feeling cold, and your guests aren’t going to enjoy themselves if they are freezing! Think about your dress, is it suitable for the winter? If you’re having a winter wedding you will need to ensure your venue is well heated – this is particularly important for churches or older buildings that may not have central heating.

5. Serve warming refreshments. The last thing you want to be doing on a cold winters day is drinking ice cold champagne. Maybe try serving warm cocktails, hot toddies or mulled wine to keep your guests warm and create a more seasonal atmosphere.
