Walking in a winter wedding wonderland
Whilst we’re all crossing our fingers for a hot summer, we still can’t help but look forward to the 2018 winter wedding season. The cooler temperatures often bring the coolest of trends. There’s just something extraordinary about winter and the magic that it brings with it. Think long, dark evenings filled with roaring log fires, aromatic mulled wine and glistening winter landscapes.
As 2018 marks the first winter that The K Room is open for business, we couldn’t be more excited to welcome the most wonderful time of the year. Plus, as a newly-launched exclusive wedding venue, we still have several key winter wedding dates available for those of you who still have your hearts set on a winter wedding. To inspire you to end 2018 on a high, we’re looking at the top ways to create your very own winter wedding wonderland.
Winter weddings are all about resplendent décor and rich fabrics. It’s the one time of year when you can truly indulge in sheer luxury on a large scale. From rich berry hues to tartan accents, nothing is off limits. If you’d prefer something more understated, think stark whites with metallic accents to mirror the winter landscape. The beauty of a winter wedding is that nothing is off limits, especially when you tie the knot in the grandeur of our Grade II listed house. Our tastefully decorated house dances the line of sophisticated and luxurious. You can transform it into your very own winter wonderland with a forest green theme to style your day. This woodland inspired colour lets you bring the outdoors in whilst combining a festive feel with ultra-modern vibes.
The cold weather calls for warm interiors, so it makes sense to opt for rich fabrics. The winter months are perfect for sumptuous faux-fur stoles and vivacious velvets. Thick, luxurious fabric adds opulence and warmth to a winter wedding. From elegant ring boxes and subtle accents to draped canopies and table covers, this is a trend that works on a small or large scale. Luxury textured fabrics in a range of hues can be easily incorporated into your wedding day. At Fairyhill, our sophisticated lounge strikes just the right balance between statement and subtle, with luxurious velvet cushions and sumptuous sofas that you can just sink into.
Bringing the outdoors in
The only problem with winter weddings is that it’s often too cold to venture outside for long. However, the frost adorned trees and glistening grounds at Fairyhill look too breathtakingly beautiful and deserve to be marvelled at. Fortunately, with our K Room, you’ll be able to enjoy panoramic views of our Gower garden without feeling that winter chill. With floor to ceiling glass, you’ll be immersed in your very own winter wonderland for your special day.
Turn up the heat
Whilst our K Room gives you the perfect opportunity to enjoy the gorgeous Gower views from the comfort of a luxurious indoor space, you can entice guests outside and make the most of our fire pit. For an extra special touch, have blanket baskets dotted around the place so guests can snuggle up under the stars. Think faux-fur throws and velvety blankets for a look that’s truly en vogue.
One of the best parts about a winter wedding is the mouth-watering menu options. Our chefs will work with you to put a unique and festive spin on our platinum menu. Winter is the time to eat, drink and be merry, so we can also create winter warmers for your guests to sip on. Think gin cocktails garnished with winter berries. You could even opt for a mulled wine reception so your guests can start celebrating the most magical time of the year on the most magical day of your lives.
Forget fairies and consider our staff your very own team of elves this Christmas. Whilst you might think it’s too late to book a winter wedding for 2018, we’re experts at making your dreams a reality at even the shortest of notice. We’ll take care of everything for you; we even include a full décor service in all our winter wedding packages to take the stress out of your big day.
