Festive Weddings

Festive Fun Weddings

Festive Fun Weddings

The festive season begins on December 1st at Cote How, with the house brought to life with sparkling fairylights and festive cheer.

The log fires are burning and the house is trimmed everywhere with evergreen garlands and fairylights to bring even more warmth and welcome cheer. Bringing in the light in winter. It’s a very exciting time of year and the house is extra cosy and inviting!

Christmas Weddings​

There are many things to celebrate in December, from the Winter Solstice to Christmas and New Year. So if you fancy a wedding with a festive feel then most venues will be adorned in evergreen, berry reds and twinkling with candle light, fairy-lights and of course festoon lights! Always check out your venue in the dark too as most winter weddings will be at dusk!

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

Lots of Christmas themed wedding options:

Choose any style of wedding to suit you, from the variety of Winter Weddings outlined above for your festive themed Christmas wedding. 

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring

Of course you may be planning a Christmas engagement! How wonderful!

If this is you, did you know that the Lake District is the UK’s most romantic destination? So if you are planning a little winter break, and plan to pop the question while you’re in the Lakes, remember to book a showround early as we are always busy during the festive period with your new wedding enquiries.  

Perhaps Santa will bring you that long hoped for gift this Chrstmas?
