47 The Rose Hotel

Cosy fireside welcome drinks, spiced cocktails and candlelight Madeleine Doyle, award winning wedding co-ordinator at The Rose Hotel explains why winter weddings are the best. There’s more chance of your guests being in the country. Summer holidays can be tricky to plan around where as people can be more flexible in winter and may already have time taken off.

Warm drinks by the fire beat cold drinks in the rain. You can’t guarantee the sun in summer, but you can guarantee warm drinks and cosy, comforting food beside the fire or in your candlelit

reception room. Winter style is such fun. Winter weddings call for faux fur, elegant sleeves and dramatic embellishment so you can get glam without worrying about overheating! The photographs will look amazing. At The Rose Hotel, we embrace the

Christmas season with gorgeously decorated trees and garlands meaning that there are plenty of places to capture the perfect images. Also, if it snows you can create fairy-tale images in our courtyard. Bag a better date. Winter wedding dates are slower to fill up then summer dates, so you have more chance to get the perfect date for you and your loved ones. For more information on winter weddings at The Rose Hotel contact or visit for more information.
