Things to think about when planning a Festive Wedding
Winter Weddings are magical, from the crisp frosty backdrops outside to the cosy fireplaces and decorations inside. Hosting your wedding during the festive period allows you to make the most of the Christmas spirit and gather all of your loved ones. Although it may appear overwhelming to plan, we are here to help! At The Old Hall Ely, what matters are the extra special touches that make each wedding personal to every one of our couples. Read our top tips for a Winter Wedding below and learn more about our Open Day which will showcase just how magical The Old Hall Ely is, especially in the colder months.
Create a cosy backdrop
Steer away from the summer backdrop of colorful flowers and opt in for a festive theme from your florist or a roaring fire. There is also something special about beautifully lit Christmas trees creating the perfect backdrop for your photographs, which is why we feature no less than 20 when decorating The Old Hall for this season!
Blankets for guests
Seasonal details on the cake
Whether you include dried flowers, berries or frosted foliage, seasonal details on your wedding cake add that special touch. Our favourite festive wedding cake trend is a gold touch. From flecks of gold leaf or drip to an entire gold tier, this is guaranteed to create a sense of opulence and show off the beautiful festive feel to your special day.
Serve Festive cocktails and drinks
Something that definitely can’t be missed out on your big day, is a selection of warming winter drinks! Be inventive with your choices, why not include; a festive baileys cocktail, warming mulled wine or add that typical Christmas sparkle with bubbles.
Winter Wedding Venue Open Day
To show off how amazing a festive wedding is, The Old Hall Ely team are opening our doors to all couples for a Winter Wedding Showcase! If you’re recently engaged, or are one of the lucky few to have already booked your wedding with us, then this is an event you don’t want to miss out on. Our wedding venue in Cambridgeshire shines brightest in the winter season. Our roaring fires, ornate decorations, cosy interior spaces and our gardens lit with spectacular lights create a beautiful contrast against the dark skies.
At our winter wedding open day, hosted on Sunday, 3rd of December from 12pm until 5pm, there will be the opportunity to explore our beautiful house and grounds whilst enjoying complimentary canapés and a glass of organic bubbles. As darkness begins to fall, our gardens and grounds will light up with sparkles as the afternoon rolls on. It will be truly magical and we do not want you to miss out. The Old Hall Ely are also delighted to partner with Cambridgeshire’s top wedding suppliers, from florists to live entertainment so you can have your pick from the best for your special day!
There is no need to book a ticket, just gather your friends and family and get ready for an amazing day of winter wedding inspiration! We can’t wait to meet you there.
