Winter weddings have become increasingly popular among UK brides and with Covid resulting in many weddings being put back to a later date in the year, lots of couples have opted to get wed outside of the popular summer months and choose a winter wedding instead. Winter weddings can be a magical affair, think festive feasts, roaring log fires and snow-dusted photographs.
Winter weddings do require a little more thought for the bride in terms of her dress. Long sleeves, faux fur stoles and sparkles are all great options. To show you can be cosy AND chic, the Wedding Team at Delamere Manor have picked out some of their favourite winter wedding gowns.
Full Length Velvet
Velvet is a go-to fabric for winter weddings. A heavier fabric ensures you stay warm but by opting for a dress with a partially open back brings elegance and looks seriously stunning. The addition of floral embroidery on this dress accents the waistline and sleeves for beautiful winter wedding style.
Fit for a Duchess
Make the most of a Christmas colour palette and opt for a golden dress instead of traditional white. Jenny Packham’s ‘Margot’ gown – worn by the Duchess of Cambridge at the No Time To Die world premiere – is cut from tulle that’s drenched in scores of sequins, beads and crystals in sunny gold and copper tones. It’s gathered at the waist to create an elegant drape and is fully lined to temper the sheer fabric.
Faux Fur Stole
If you’ve found your dream dress but are concerned you may get a little chilly, the perfect accessory is a faux fur stole. The addition of a stole also means you can bring in the colour theme of your wedding for a beautiful and creative look.
If your heart is set on lace then Rime Arodaky’s ‘Avery’ gown could be the perfect choice for your winter wedding day. With long sleeves and a box-pleated silk-gazar skirt it will keep chills away yet stills feels amazingly light.
The Classic Gown
Roland Mouret’s Ella gown is rendered in white wool and linked in silk making it a great option for a winter wedding. Combining a contemporary cut with expertly crafted panelling to flatter the silhouette, Mouret’s signature twist on tailoring is seen with an asymmetric zip to the reverse, making this piece as directional as it is classic.
Delamere Manor is Cheshire’s most sought-after wedding venue.
