Winter will bring out the Christmas magic and the glittering glamour in everyone. There are great opportunities for cosy candles, fireplaces, dimmed lights and fluffy winter stoles. There may even be some snow!

You can really embrace the Christmas magic and go for Christmas colours and themes, or you can go for rich, dark colours that will make your wedding feel glamorous and high end.

You might even get some snow, which will add some extra magic to your photos, if you're prepared to venture outside for a bit.

Christmas sunsets are nice and early, so you can capture wonderful golden hour couples portraits without having to have your photographer at your wedding until 10pm! Timing is key for Winter Weddings!

Venues may have some good deals on for January and February as this is usually a quiet time of year for weddings.


Remember that the days are much shorter in Winter, so you need to be extra careful when planning your timeline. Earlier weddings are better if you want natural daylight for your photographs. If your ceremony is later on in the day, be prepared for most of your photographs to be taken using flash, which will give them a slightly different feel to natural light.

Asking your guests to stand outside for photographs might cause a few problems if it's very cold. Elderly relatives may struggle with this. Plus, if you're out for too long, you'll have lots of red noses in your photographs!

Christmas is an expensive time of year, so keep in mind that you may have guests unable to attend your wedding because of their financial situation.

Along with this, you may have guests who have Christmas obligations who are unable to attend the wedding if it is too close to Christmas day, or between Christmas and New Year.
