Although the thought of planning a wedding on a beach during the English winter may sound crazy, here at Lusty Glaze we couldn’t think of a better time to tie the knot. With cosy blanket storm watching, winter themed BBQs and warmed cider, we think winter weddings could be the new craze.
Worried about the weather? Don’t be. By choosing to have a winter wedding there is no need to worry about whether you’re going to have rain, sunshine or Cornwall’s famous wind. Your focus will be on creating the perfect indoor wedding and with Lusty Glaze’s wood burners, fairy lights and cosy indoor seating, this most definitely isn’t hard to fashion. Another bonus to your wintry wedding will be that the evenings draw in that little bit earlier, meaning guests can enjoy a sunset like no other whilst enjoying the warm indoors. That’s all before popping their dancing shoes on and twirling the night away.
The stormy seas and atmospheric skies lend themselves to create the perfect backdrop for your photos. We work with a wide variety of fantastic photographers such as Wild Tide Creative and Abi Riley Photography who would be sure to capture those all-important whimsical winter wedding moments. You could even incorporate some fun props such as umbrellas or initialled wellies, which we find always add something fun and unique to your wedding albums.
Another reason why you should be in favour of a winter wedding is that Cornwall is a VERY seasonal location, meaning the summer months can be costly for accommodation. If you are from out of county this also means your guests may struggle to find accommodation that will suit their budget. Nevertheless, if your wedding falls on the colder months, accommodation in Cornwall is far more accessible (in more ways than one) and guests may decide to have a mini winter break as a result of this. Some great offers that we have seen are with Watergate Bay Hotel’s self-catering properties and Fistral Beach Hotel’s Christmas break deals.
If you think that a winter wedding would suit your dream day, start planning today and get in touch with the Lusty Glaze Wedding team. We can’t wait to hear all your festive wedding ideas.
See you on the sand.
