A Winter Wedding Venue

There's something truly enchanting about winter weddings. The crisp air, glistening snowflakes, and cozy ambiance create a magical backdrop for your special day. If you're considering tying the knot during the colder months, our wedding venue is the perfect place to bring your winter wonderland wedding dreams to life.
Winter weddings offer a unique charm and lots of possibilities. Whether you envision a rustic, bohemian affair or a glamorous and elegant event, the winter season provides a canvas for your creativity to flourish. Here are just a few reasons why a winter wedding at our venue will make your celebration extraordinary:

Breathtaking Scenery: Picture a scene straight out of a fairy tale – a serene landscape blanketed in snow,  trees dusted with frost, and a warm, inviting atmosphere indoors. Our venue provides a picturesque setting, allowing you to create stunning photo opportunities and unforgettable memories.

Intimate and Cosy Atmosphere: Winter weddings often exude an intimate and cosy atmosphere that encourages togetherness and warmth. Picture your loved ones gathered around crackling fireplaces, enjoying mulled wine or hot cocoa, and sharing heartfelt moments. Our DIY-style venue allows you to curate the perfect setting to foster this sense of intimacy.

Seasonal Décor: Embrace the beauty of the season by incorporating seasonal elements into your wedding décor. Think twinkling fairy lights, cascading garlands of pine cones and holly, elegant silver and gold accents, and warm candlelight illuminating the room. Our venue provides ample space for you to unleash your creativity and transform it into a winter wonderland that reflects your unique style.

Culinary Delights: Winter weddings provide an opportunity to indulge in delicious and comforting culinary treats. From hearty soups and gourmet comfort food to decadent desserts like spiced apple pie or rich chocolate fondue, our self-catering option allows you to design a menu that will warm your guests' hearts and tantalise their taste buds.


Seasonal Activities: Enhance your guests' experience by incorporating winter-themed activities into your celebration. You could set up a hot chocolate bar, organise a friendly snowball fight, or even arrange a horse-drawn carriage ride through the snow. The possibilities are endless, and our flexible DIY-style weddings ensure you have the freedom to create a truly memorable event.

Our dedicated events team are always on hand and will be pleased to offer you advice and guidance to assist you in making your wedding day the most memorable day of your life.  You can also see what our past wedding guests think about Knockerdown Wedding Venue.
