Guide to Winter Weddings

Wednesday, 13 December 2017
If you are looking for a quirky and different wedding option and you would like your day to be elegant and romantic, winter weddings are for you. 
More couples are choosing to get married in the winter months. The magic touch and the charm of the season set a beautiful background to tie the knot. The possibilities are endless and more surprising than for traditional spring or summer weddings: a winter wedding includes coats, stoles, exciting centre pieces and sometimes even snow!

The Redcastle Hotel is the ideal venue for your dream winter wedding. Imagine the romantic atmosphere that can be created in the Ocean Suite, with the panoramic views over the river Foyle. We have an amazing package available for the winter season, which includes: arrival drinks reception, four course evening meal, evening buffet for all your guests, bridal suite complimentary on the night, sparkling wine toast, 3 Tier Wedding Cake, Table Plan plus a Mini Moon Package!

Our bundle also includes a complete room set up - including chair covers, bows, centre pieces, menus & table numbers. In this type of wedding, decorations are very important and if you want it to be original you can combine candles and snowballs as well as cinnamon sticks or pineapples. Make white, blue and metallic shades the main theme of your day.

In addition, if a wedding is celebrated in the winter season it is often easier to reserve a specific date at the church or the venue, or even to book the photographer you wanted! And in many cases, there are special offers and rates not available in the summer dates. 

For all these many reasons, we love winter weddings! If you love them too, drop us a line to to discuss your ideal winter wedding.
