Winter Weddings - Our Top Five Wedding Venues in the South West England

Happy Autumn solstice, wedding planners!

As the nights draw in and the jumpers make their way back into the wardrobe, we start to turn our attention to the winter season here at Tailored Towers. You may be surprised to hear this, but winter still sees us as busy as ever, sending awesome wedding entertainment out to venues across the country.

Now traditionally, this never used to be the case. October to December was always a fairly quiet time in the diary for wedding bookings, and suppliers like ours would turn their attention to Christmas and the corporate entertainment market. But all that has started to change drastically in recent years.

More and more couples are opting for a winter wedding. And we totally see the appeal. For many, the winter season represents a more budget-friendly time of year to schedule your big day – some venues are up to 50% less expensive than when booked in the peak summer months of June to September.

What’s more, a winter wedding affords you so many opportunities that a summer wedding cannot. Turning leaves and crisp, frosty days make for great photos. Winter colour palates introduce a whole new level to developing your wedding aesthetic. Then you’ve got the joy of Christmas weddings – a great opportunity to combine the romance of your wedding day with the festive goodwill of the holidays. Some people even choose to tie the knot on New Years Eve!

However, planning a winter wedding can be tricky. There are things to consider that just wouldn’t be a factor beforehand. None more so than in your choice of venue. Well, we thought we’d help with that bit!

We asked our bands to choose five of their favourite winter wedding venues in the South West England. Hopefully this will help you on your quest to find the perfect spot for a gorgeous winter wedding day.

Here we go!

Pynes House, Devon. Perfect for a gorgeous winter retreat.

Wedding Venues in the South West England - Pynes House Exeter

Devon wedding band One Soul introduced us to this extraordinary venue just outside of Exeter, and we’re so glad they did. Pynes House is believed to be the inspiration for Barton Park in Jane Austen’s ‘Sense and Sensibility’. Steeped in history and nestled in sumptuous countryside, this stunning venue can be hired exclusively for your wedding day – plus its big enough to comfortably house a large wedding party if the weather turns!

And why not hire The Big Strut for the evening reception? Their mix of classic and contemporary party tunes delivered with unmistakable style is the perfect accompaniment to this beautiful venue.

Aldwick Court Farm & Estate, Bristol. Perfect for…a cracking Christmas feast!

Wedding Venues in the South West England - Aldwick Court Farm

There is so much to love about Aldwick Court, it’s difficult to really know where to start. This rustic 17th century farm went through a sizeable renovation in 2013, and the blending of history with contemporaneous style has been executed perfectly. It’s located just outside of Bristol in the Chew Valley, and so manages to offer beautiful country vistas whilst still remaining convenient for your guests. It’s set in its own vineyard, which can be served during your wedding breakfast. And what’s more, the food is wonderful. We can’t think of a better place for a festive Christmas wedding!

National Museum Cardiff. Perfect for a contemporary city-centre space.

Wedding Venues in the South West England - National Museum Cardiff

Winter weddings can afford you a great opportunity to think a little outside the box with your wedding venue. Weddings might not be the first thing with which you associate with the National Museum Cardiff, but this incredible institution offers a brilliant wedding package that is perfect for winter weddings. You can hold your wedding reception in a gallery surrounded by the works of master painters, and your wedding reception in the Museum’s stunning atrium.

And if you’re looking for a wedding band in South Wales, indie-rock party band Brightside are a cracking choice. Check out their video right here for a taste of what they do…

Tall John’s House Perfect for stunning photos in a majestic setting.

Nestled in a valley in the Brecon Beacons, Tall John’s House is the kind of wedding venue that takes some besting. The house and grounds are utterly magnificent and have played host to weddings since as far back as 1588. The house itself offers accommodation and a beautifully restored stone barn that can cater for up to 150 people. A venue suggested by another of our South Wales wedding bands, the fantastic Just For Tonight, this is a truly special place to tie the knot.

Celtic Manor Resort – Twenty Ten Clubhouse. Perfect for country weddings with city amenities.

Golf fanatics will already know Celtic Manor Resort well. It’s home to numerous world class championship golf courses. In fact, Celtic Manor Resort is so vast in scale, it can boast no fewer than eight potential wedding venues! We’ve decided to turn our attention to the Twenty Ten Clubhouse. Built to house the 2010 Ryder Cup teams, this stylishly designed club house manages to feel grand in scale yet surprisingly intimate – this is mostly due to the fact that you’re separated from the main resort by a considerable distance. Celtic Manor carries all the tranquillity of a countryside resort whilst still maintaining five-star accommodation, dining and other amenities – a difficult combination to find in a wedding venue!

So there you have it! Five stunning winter wedding venues in South West England, perfect for a magical Christmas wedding. For more information on booking awesome wedding entertainment for your winter wedding, give us a call and chat to one of our expert team. We can’t wait to hear from you!
