04 Dec Wonderful Winter Weddings
Wonderful Winter Weddings
Winter weddings are not the most popular in this country. Within the wedding industry there is definitely a busy season between March/April – September when most weddings take place. Lots of couples are hoping for dry bright weather within this period of time as well as adopting a bright summer colour scheme. Obviously weather in the UK can’t always be depended on, but a warm August wedding with long light evenings can be a wonderful way to celebrate a marriage. However, I absolutely love a winter wedding!
Magic in the air
There’s something so magical about a wedding in December; that Christmas spirit in the air, venues being decorated in pretty lights with huge Christmas trees, the grounds covered in a crisp frost! It really brings out that feeling of Christmas spirit and ‘togetherness’ when sharing your day within this season as a truly lovely way to celebrate.
Obviously my favourite part of performing at a winter wedding is the music! Pre-Christmas I love to play and sing those classic Christmas classics, and you can guarantee it’s a music choice that all guests young and old will be familiar with. Post-Christmas in the lovely little space between Boxing day and New Year’s day there are still a plethora of winter themed song choices such as ‘Walking in a Winter Wonderland’ and ‘Let it Snow’ which don’t mention Christmas but still fill the air with that magical spirit. I’ve been sharing snippets of my favourite Christmas numbers on the saxophone on my social media channels (Facebook & Instagram) – have a listen!
My favourite winter weddings over the last few years are definitely New Year’s Eve. What a truly special date to become a married couple, entering the New Year with all the hope and desires for what the next 12 months will bring as newlyweds!
So for anyone planning a winter wedding I wish you absolutely all the best in getting married at a truly enchanted time of year. Got any questions about planning your winter wedding music? Ask me here.
