Small Lake District Winter Weddings

and Christmas Winter Wedding Ideas 

Stunning Winter Wedings

Why choose a winter wedding?

  • Stunning Snow Capped Mountains
  • Cosy Lake District Wedding Venues with real log fires
  • Less busy with work, life and holidays
  • More accommodation availability
  • Less Traffic, more parking, less people on the fells
  • More wedding Dates available
  • Amazing time for Christmas Weddings
Many couples opt for winter and even Christmas weddings, which has many advantages. When it is cold and crisp outside, you feel more in the mood for cuddling up warm and cosy, and nothing beats a real fire and twinkling candlelight to muster up those romantic winter wedding ideas! 

Then on a more practical note, the Lakes are so much quieter in the winter months, making accommodation and travelling much easier. If you are into the great outdoors, you can enjoy a quieter time on the fells. Winter usually brings lots of cold high-pressure weather with great visibility for those beautiful mountain views too
Take advantage of this when your winter wedding photography can be even more dramatic.

Cosy...

Of course, winter conjures up wonderful memories of cosy log fires and gentle flickering candlelight and Cote How has this in abundance!

Stunning...

Picture-perfect backdrops featuring some of the most photographed landscapes in the UK. Right in the heart of the Lakes surrounded by breathtaking views.

Exclusivity...

A hidden gem and your private haven, Cote How's exclusive use guarantees this is all yours for the duration of your wedding!

Celebrate...

From the Winter Solstice, Christmas and New Year, winter is perfect for taking time out to rest, recuperate and enjoy a slower pace of life.
