Winter Wedding Ideas for a Barn Wedding Venue

With winter just around the corner, we’re dreaming of romantic winter weddings with cosy colour schemes, delicious wedding food and festive décor. Let’s take a look at some wonderful winter wedding ideas for your Bassmead wedding day.


Setting the Scene

Bassmead Manor Barns is a venue for all seasons and the romantic character of the barns make it a dreamy setting for a winter wedding. Create your romantic ambience with clever lighting, from fairy lights around the beams in the rustic Rickety Barn to candelabras or hurricane lanterns on the tables in the contemporary Bridge Barn. You might even decide to introduce large illuminated letters on the dancefloor!

Set amidst the beautiful Cambridgeshire countryside, you and your guests can enjoy the beauty and comfort of the barns while also savouring the views across the surrounding winter landscape.


Winter Colours

Boasting a neutral canvas, at Bassmead Manor Barns you can introduce your own colour scheme. You might decide to stick to traditional festive shades of greens, reds and golds or to create a winter wonderland with pure white and glistening silver. Other warm tones work beautifully at this time of year, from pinks and purples to rich blues and burgundies. Whatever you decide, echo your colour scheme with seasonal flowers and an abundance of foliage, bringing the outside in.

Food and Drink

Oh, how we love a winter menu! Delight your guests with a warming drinks reception, perhaps offering mulled wine, spiced cider or a boozy hot chocolate station alongside a selection of hot canapés. Moving on to your winter wedding breakfast, Galloping Gourmet are on hand to create an exquisite seasonal menu.

Cosy Details

Embrace the season with thoughtful details. Festive favours might include Christmas tree baubles, sparklers or even pine cones sprayed with glitter. It’s also a great time of the year to offer edible favours, from personalised gingerbread to toffee apples and delicious handmade truffles. Finally, make the most of the great outdoors. Even if it’s a little chilly, your guests are likely to enjoy wandering out in to the gardens, particularly for a slice or two of wood-fired pizza in the evening. Providing shawls or blankets is likely to encourage them to relax and soak up their surroundings.
