The Winter Wedding: A Literal Fairytale

Despite the chilly weather, a Winter wedding will undoubtedly have that ‘fairytale’ edge. Is it just me, or is there something so darn romantic about Winter in general? Whether it’s ice skating in the park hand in hand or snuggled up next to the fire with some egg nogg, the festive period is made for lovers.

Just imagine saying your vows in between glistening snow flakes, or having your reception dinner in front of a roaring open fire. Snow-dotted trees and frozen lakes are about enough to make any lady feel like a complete Elsa on their wedding day.

Not convinced? Here’s why a Winter wedding is, quite literally, a fairy tale.
