Winter weddings at Holne Park

Article Published: Wednesday 2nd December, 2015 - 10:32am

Nothing quite captures the cosy, magical essence of the season than a winter wedding celebration. A time to treat your guests to something incredibly special, their senses will be utterly indulged by the sights, scents and flavours a winter wedding can bring. After all, what spells decadence and romance more than roaring log fires, spicy mulled wine and richly coloured decorations?

Holne Park House is a dreamily unique wedding venue in the heart of Devon. Set on the southern slopes of Dartmoor National Park amongst 90 acres of gorgeous grounds and gardens of the River Dart Country Park, the house provides an idyllic scene for a rather spectacular winter affair - which has seen a recent surge in such bookings, as Laura Coleman, Wedding Co-Ordinator, explains:

“The unpredictable nature of British weather means that even if you chose a summer date, you can never guarantee that it won’t rain. I often hear brides say they would rather have the bonus of sun at their winter wedding than be disappointed by rain on their summer date.”

What's more, choosing a winter wedding date can also prove extremely cost effective, with couples being able to secure better deals on venue fees and have their pick of suppliers who often reduce their prices during the 'off' season.

Laura continues: “September, October and December were the first months to become fully booked in 2016. This indicates that many couples have realised the advantages of having a winter wedding. Couples want their special day to be memorable and distinctive, so brides are increasingly booking winter weddings over the more traditional summer dates to ensure their day stands out."

“With internet sites such as Pinterest being filled with creative and unique winter wedding ideas, brides are confidently able to visualise a magical winter wedding setting. Whether it’s a winter wonderland or more traditional seasonal décor that you love – there is something wintry for every bride and groom.”
