Autumn, Winter, Christmas & New Year
We’re hopefully moving into another great summer, and we are sure many of you are ready for it. But we haven’t done bad this winter have we!? Indian summer nights in autumn, crisp sunny days in winter, a not so white Christmas and a fairly mild night to see in 2019.
Global warming is changing, and it made us wonder – maybe there isn’t that much difference between spring, summer weddings and autumn, winter. In fact, we had a look into it, and found autumn, winter weddings have their pretty special moments too… Take look 👀
A U T U M N 🍁
We had a wedding last October on Saturday 13th and it was close to a record-breaking temperature for that time of year. The sun was shining and the colours were just incredible, Mr & Mrs Cross couldn’t have wished for a more Autumn day.
‘An Autumn wedding isn’t something we initially intended on as we were trying to be quite flexible with dates to secure the perfect venue, we knew we didn't want a summer wedding and when we got to thinking about the date we thought actually more often than not we get a lovely late summer in the Autumn, then once we saw Saltmarshe Hall with its beautiful gardens we knew that was the venue for us and that the autumnal colours would just be an extra special feature.’

Okay so the temperature drops and there’s a little more chance of a bit of rain and cloud around. But that in itself can still be beautiful. With our bar and lounges all being the home to a cosy log fire, just imagine how homely and intimate our winter weddings can be!? Not only that, but if you do happen to catch that lovely winter sun, don’t the gardens create the most enchanting photographs!?

Keeping those cosy, chilled vibes and enchanting gardens in mind, add a pinch of Christmas spirit, and you’ve got yourself a truly magical wedding! Saltmarshe Hall comes alive at Christmas, it’s probably because it has that family owned, inviting feel, with 8ft Christmas trees and hints of Christmas décor to compliment those stunning fire places and that oh so iconic staircase. (You save yourself a bit on décor spends too 😉)
Hannah, our Wedding & Events Manager had her first Christmas at the Hall last year…
‘Starting in April and seeing the gardens through spring and summer and how the Hall just came alive with the summer sun, I was really excited to see how different it was in the winter. Anyone who has worked with me knows I’m ALWAYS cold 🙈so it’s not really my most liked season! But I was pleasantly surprised. It’s amazing how warm the Hall stays in the winter, not something you expect from such an old building. With the fires lit and the Christmas decorations up it comes alive in a completely different way. I think Christmas brings people together and just enthuses joy anyway, put that in a family owned Hall, beautifully renovated with its modern touches on those original structures, it really is perfect for two families to come together and celebrate a new marriage. I’m slightly biased because I love the Hall anyway, but hopefully when people visit, they get the same feeling.’

Carry on those Christmas celebrations and enjoy New Year at the Hall. Touching on what Hannah said, we aim to provide a place where families can come together and celebrate. New family, new Mr & Mrs, New Year. A New Year’s Wedding is a great way to combine those celebrations.
Well, what do you think!? Is winter the new summer? Or if not, is it just as good? We think so! And we still have some availability for Autumn & Winter this year, including some Christmas dates AND (would you believe it! 😲) New Year’s Eve 2019.
