That crispness in the air is a fabulous sign – Winter is coming!
I know I live on the Sunshine Coast, and most weddings happen in Autumn and Spring, but don’t discount having a winter wedding – they’re my favourite. No sweaty guests (or celebrants lol), the boys can wear gorgeous woollen suits, brides and their gals don’t need to worry about limp hair and sweating their makeup off.
Then imagine a reception up in the hinterland with a toasty, romantic fire … mmmm! magic! One of my fave weddings was a few years ago and the bride wore a beautiful gown and had a detachable ‘faux’ fur shawl – she looked stunning and oh, so classy.
One thing to remember though, is that because sunset is earlier, then the standard 3pm ceremony will usually need to be earlier – say 2pm, so you have lots of light for your photos. Let me know if you need some advice as to when’s the best time for your ceremony – irrespective of when you’re getting married.
But, winter is still not an overly popular time and most of the wedding industry takes a bit of a breather before we crank off again in August. You may even find that some wedding suppliers discount their rates over winter … just sayin! 🙂
