Why elope in winter?

As the winter months creep in, the world around us starts to slow down and creates the perfect ambience for a stress-free elopement. There is something so peaceful about a winter wedding in the middle of your own winter wonderland, and this is one of the reasons why winter weddings are becoming more desired. Check out below some of the reasons why winter elopements are becoming so popular.

Reason 1 – Lower costs

High season and low season are well-known terms within the hospitality sector, as accommodation prices drop in winter. Not only will you save money on your accommodation and elopement package, but don’t forget you will save on your suppliers too. You are effectively getting the same package but at a cheaper price! Allowing you extra savings to start your newly married life together.

Reason 2 – Peaceful and stress-free

Not only does the low season bring cheaper prices, but it also brings a sense of calmness and tranquillity. Summer often brings many holidaymakers, busy roads, packed restaurants and overpacked beaches. Elope in winter and enjoy the brisk breeze on your face as you walk along a deserted Devon beach and feel like you are the only 2 in the world.

Reason 3 – The weather

Embrace the authenticity of your wedding day weather! Whether you choose to hold your ceremony in front of the roaring log fire or amongst the woodlands sheltered by the trees in your wellies, it is your choice! A summer wedding does not guarantee a dry, hot day, but a winter wedding allows you to be creative and to be prepared for all eventualities. Some of the best memories are created on a rainy day, plus… it is good luck if it rains on your wedding day!

Reason 4 – Cosy and Romantic

Shorter days mean you can stay cosy in bed for longer! Take advantage of these long mornings and relax with breakfast in bed. Then enjoy your winter ceremony in front of the roaring log fire surrounded by flickering candles and the backdrop of a frosty winter wonderland. In the evenings, cosy up together under a blanket and watch the sunset, or retreat with a bottle of champagne to the hot tub hut in the woods.

Reason 5 - Food and Drink

Winter months bring with them the return of many great nibbles and tipples. Enjoy mini-pigs in a blanket or mince pies for your canapes, mulled wine or shots of baileys for your toast drink, or how about a Hot Toddy instead of coffee with your winter-style cheese board. Our chefs will help create your desired wedding day menu for the ultimate romantic dining experience in the Summer House. Get creative and create your wedding your way!
