There is nothing like a winter wedding at Southend Barns. From the frost dancing across our landscaped gardens to the warm glow of twinkling lights inviting you in from the cold, there really is a touch of magic here during winter.
Over the years we have seen our couples embrace their winter nuptials with some truly wonderful ideas. Read on for a dose of seasonal wedding inspiration…
Where The Love Light Gleams
With a canopy of twinkling fairy lights, striking old wooden beams and elegant, tall Christmas tree, our Threshing Barn lends itself beautifully to winter wonderland styling.
Whether your heart sings for flowers in crisp, cool seasonal whites or traditional festive greenery elevated with vibrant touches of red and gold, our barns provide the perfect backdrop to all winter themes.
Our Elegant Ivory Styling Selection is also a beautiful choice for winter, embracing seasonal tones with white and green silk flowers, antique silver touches and the warm glow of candlelight. Find out more about this and our other in-house Styling Selections here.
Have a Cup of Cheer
Delighting in the decadent is what cold weather cuisine is all about, so why not pepper your menu with some yuletide classics?
Roots catering has created some delicious seasonal dishes over the years including “pigs in blanket” with cranberry, mustard and honey dip, overnight shoulder of lamb with a cranberry and mint glaze, slow-cooked blade of beef with allotment vegetables and pink pepper mash, and a mouth-watering mince pie and frangipan tart served with rosemary pine custard.
And don’t forget the drinks – from hot chocolate complete with all the trimmings to warm and fragrant mulled wine (one of our chef’s specialities) and of course the ever popular espresso martini, set your winter’s scene with delicious drinks enjoyed to the backdrop of our roaring firepit and sheltered Collecting Yard.
The Prettiest Sight to See
Whether you dream of old Hollywood glamour or ethereal beauty for your wedding day look, winter offers a wealth of possibilities. Is your style a stunning long sleeved lace dress with sweeping train, a faux fur cape or jewel encrusted gown? The cooler months lend themselves perfectly to everything from high glamour to edgy wedding day chic.
Make the Season Bright
Nothing says celebration like a dazzling display of fireworks – particularly on a crisp night. Here at Southend Barns we are mindful of our surrounding countryside and so use a specialist, low noise supplier to fill our skies with sparkle and cascading colour.
