Often described as the most romantic season, winter can be the perfect time for a wedding. Take advantage of the cold weather and hold a cosy ceremony, create a magical winter wonderland or a fabulously festive affair – enjoying a memorable day with your family and friends in Cornwall.

There are plenty of benefits associated with holding your wedding in the colder months. From eliminating the added stress of worrying about the British weather (we all know its going to be chilly) to embracing the delicious seasonal food and drink that’s on offer at this time of year, including the delights of mulled wines and ciders. Plus, why not incorporate the festive season in your theme? Twinkling lights, shiny embellishments and artificial snow (you never know you may even be lucky enough to get the real stuff!) can all be added as part of the decor.
