Amazing Winter Weddings in Southampton
Here at The Flower Shop Southampton, our wedding florists cater for events of all shapes and sizes, throughout the 4 seasons of the year. There is something extra magical about winter weddings in Hampshire though; romantic candle lit aisles, dreamy white blooms and a sprinkling of glistening snow if we are lucky!
As a local Southampton florist with 3 branches in the area, we cover Hampshire and surrounding counties for wedding flowers. We have worked at some amazing wedding venues over the years, and have tons of experience of what flowers and decor work best based on the happy couples theme, budget and space.
We pick out some of our highlights of winter weddings in our hometown of Southampton – from bridal flower trends, perfect wedding venues to get hitched and styling tips.
Wild Winter Flowers
Winter weddings give an amazing array of colour options and flowers for your wedding flowers, so don’t be afraid to go for something a little different!
The Flower Shop Southampton have spotted the growing trend with our brides asking for colourful, rustic, warming shades for their winter weddings. Just like this stunning wild bridal bouquet we made for Steff which featured botanical, burgundy, texture and pops of yellow. Steff sent us this lovely feedback after her wedding day:
“When the bridal bouquets arrived last Saturday I was amazed at your wonderful creations, it was everything I'd envisioned and more! Thank you so much for my beautiful wedding flowers Collette and the rest of the team!”
Winter Wedding Styling
With winter weddings, it’s all in the little details for clever styling. You and your guests will be spending most time inside at your wedding venue so the décor will be a focal point and help set the scene for the day! In winter months with the longer evenings we find large candles, modern lanterns and twinkling fairy lights really help create a romantic vibe at the wedding venue. These also look fabulous combined with Instagram worthy flower walls, garlands of greenery or whimsical floral arches - these all give extra depth to your wedding venue and perfect backdrop for guests to enjoy taking photos.
The Flower Shop Southampton have a gorgeous selection of wedding décor and styling items for hire such as lanterns, martini glasses and jam jars to compliment your flowers – just ask and we can help with the little extras!
Winter nuptials at Westgate Hall
Dream of saying ‘I Do’ under beautiful vaulted ceilings and vaulted beams? The historic Westgate Hall has been recently restored and is a charming spot for a wedding ceremony in Southampton and ticks all the boxes!
Perfect for winter weddings, Westgate Hall has a cosy indoor ceremony room with large period windows for a magical feel – and you may even get a sprinkling of fairytale style snow if you are lucky! Just look at that for a wintery wedding view...
Wedding receptions hosted at Guildhall
The O2 Guildhall in the heart of Southampton is an iconic music venue, but did you know you can hire it out as your wedding venue? Perfect for winter weddings when you need a large, indoor venue for your wedding reception with lots of space to transform it into a Winter wonderland.
The main hall is a breath-taking size – with a seated wedding buffet of up to 600 guests if you are having a huge wedding party, or Guildhall also offer their beautiful Solent Suite which is more petite holding 200 guests.
