This week the weather has changed and temperatures have dropped significantly, making us realise that it is only 10 weeks until Christmas and all that the most wonderful time of the year has to offer! At Gosfield Hall Christmas is an amazing time of year with all of our real Christmas trees, a roaring log fire to greet your guests and the temptation of warming Hot Chocolate and festive Candy Canes.
Your perfect bridal bouquet doesn’t have to just be the traditional red rose, why not bunch together evergreen foliage and red berries, you could also add some sparkle … and don’t forget to have a photograph kissing under the mistletoe!
At Christmas.. Mince pies are a must! Gosfield Hall can offer these as canapés for your guests on their arrival to compliment a Winter Pimms or Mulled Wine.. Yummy!!
These delicate snowflake earrings, with crystal drops would complement a winter wonderland theme. Adding Icy glitz to your outfit!
Dorothy eat your heart out, the wicked witch will be very envious…these bright red court shoes decorated with diamantés and snowflakes will add an element of surprise under your gown and are great fun! Not only will they photograph beautifully, they will also add a sparkle on the dance floor!
Have yourself a merry Christmas wedding with this gorgeous winter cake, a great complement to the wedding bouquet with evergreen decoration and winter berries… wow!
What a great idea… these little bottles with cork stoppers will make perfect gifts for your bridesmaids, decorated with a specially selected charm and filled with a special message personalised for each of them. You could decorate them with a little snowflake or tiny baubles and hang a name tag on them to double up as favours and as name cards.
These cosy gloves make great alternative favours and will come in very “handy” to keep your guests nice and warm during photographs or for watching fireworks or giving you a sparkler send off!
Hot chocolate stations are always welcome for your guests arrival or for when your guests are watching those fireworks… I have mine with marshmallows, chocolate flakes and lots of cream!
We love these very cute miniature stockings – you could even personalise them with your guests names which would be perfect for favours!
Garters are still very popular but these days, we see all kinds, it really doesn’t have to be blue. Why not tie them in with your theme and add a snowflake or two? This one is decorated with sparkling diamantes and vintage lace snowflakes and is gorgeous.
Don’t forget to continue the festive feel after your special day with these thank you cards. They are a great way of presenting your guests with a keepsake of your special day and add sparkle with glittery text.
We can’t guarantee that you will have snow on your winter wedding day but we can cross our fingers and cross our toes and hope that we do!! It is predicted that we will have a cold winter this year so we are looking forward to a few more snowy scenes like this one… we are still dreaming of a white Christmas!
