Polhawn Winter Wedding

We have put together 10 Best reasons why to have a winter Wedding and we have a few dates left in between now and March 2016 for you to choose from. So please visit the main site or contact us for further prices and availability.

Honeymoon Heaven
Winter months in Britain is the best time to visit some of the more remote and luxurious places in the world for your honeymoon. So after enjoying your wedding at Polhawn Fort why not look at somewhere like the Maldives to relax and enjoy your first couple of weeks of married life. If you are looking for a quiet honeymoon, you can rest assure it will be quiet and not full of children as it is not in the school holidays.
Just imagine relaxing side by side in the sun.
Sunshine Stress
When planning a winter wedding you don’t worry about the weather as most of your plans are for inside, and if you get a beautiful crisp blue sky day it is an added bonus. Photographers love taking photos in the winter months as the light is so much better.

Great Availability
There is normally a lot more choice when planning a winter wedding. The availability of the Fort and suppliers are greater in the winter months and they are a lot more likely to offer a discount during these months. Also your guests are more likely to be available as most families take their holidays during school holidays or spring time.

Winter Wellies
Lots of accessories to choose from, like lovely funky wellies, amazing umbrellas and snug furry shrugs. The ideas are endless when planning a winter wedding to go with the theme of the day.

Dusk Till Dawn
The time for yourselves and your friends and family to really let their hair down and dance the night away.
As the nights draw in earlier in the winter months it is so much easier getting all your guests together to start the evenings entertainment. Live bands, discos and even throw in some Christmas themed songs and carols. Why not think of the local choir and get them to sing some seasonal carols.
Also popular are close up magicians, dancing or singing waiters, a human snow globe or dancing tables!!
Money Matters
Get your wedding dress and rings in the sales around at this time of year. You can hire the Fort for as little as £2,495 for a split mid-week in January. Monday to Wednesday or Wednesday to Friday, staying for two nights. Every penny saved with suppliers, counts towards your dream honeymoon. We can provide you with a wedding calculator to help keep on top of the finances.

Romantic Fireside Glow, sparkles and candles
You can really set a romantic setting using lots of candles (which unlike many other venues we allow at the Fort), a real log fire and beautiful fairy lights. During the month of December we provide all our couples with a wonderful large real Christmas Tree, which they can choose to decorate themselves with their own theme or we will decorate it for them.

Buck the Summer Wedding Trend, be different
Make sure your wedding stands out from all your friends. Lots of people find that they attend one wedding after another during the peak wedding months. Choose to get married in the winter months and your wedding will stand out from the rest and friends and family will be more readily available to attend.

The Rich and Famous choose winter
Kate Middleton & Prince William chose to get married in March and of course their wedding was spectacular.
Nicole Ritchie & Joel Madden and Madonna & Guy Ritchie, all got married in December. Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas chose November
Lots of comfort Food and Drinks
Hot chocolate and marsh mellows, mulled wine and lots of scrummy hot puddings. Serve up hot white chocolate in small expresso cups or eggnog in small punch glasses for when your guests arrive.
