Planning your winter wedding

Winter can be the picture-perfect time of year to get married. To help you plan your perfect day we’ve compiled a few tips on what to wear (except for a luxurious Caroline Castigliano designer wedding dress) and where to celebrate to make your winter wedding one to remember.

Dress for the weather

Winter weddings (especially in England) can be chilly and the last thing you want on your wedding day is to be cold. The Barbarella dress with a beaded bodice and silk organza skirt is a romantic and feminine gown perfect for a wintry look.

All of our wedding gowns can also be matched with our beautiful corded lace shrugs for a romantic and feminine look.

The bouquet

Seasonal elements add a festive touch to your wintry celebration. Incorporate pine cones, holly, and evergreen in your bouquet and decorations.


The Bridesmaids

There’s nothing more festive then bridesmaids in glitter or sequins. If a little black dress isn’t your cup of tea try a blush or gold glitter dress or sparkly shoes.

Choosing the right venue

If you are looking for a white wedding, with cold crisp air and snow topped trees the unreliable weather in England can prove to be a bit of a risk. For a luxurious wedding abroad take a look at these stunning locations.

 – Jukkasjärvi, Sweden

For a once in a lifetime experience, the church at the Icehotel in the very north of Sweden opens up from December to April every year. The beautiful glacial church is perfect for tying the knot. The venue gets rebuilt every year to guarantee your luxury wedding will be unique.


– Chamonix-Mont-Blanc – France

Not only one of the oldest ski resorts in France but also one of the most picturesque locations for a snowy winter wedding. With an array of traditional churches, small chapels and private chapels you can make your destination wedding very personal.

With the beautiful snow-capped mountains in the background Lake Tahoe is great for smaller intimate weddings as well as big luxurious ceremonies.
