Weddings are no longer summer only occasions, and weddings at The Castlefield Rooms offer
something special at all times of the year. Our wedding planners can recommend drinks,
food and other seasonal wedding ideas whether it ‘s champagne on the balcony in July
or mulled wine in December.
Spring weather is often now more like summer than summer! Our garden is coming into leaf
and flower and outside drinks and canapés are certainly a possibility at this time of year.
The flowers are just coming to light around the canal basin and make a fantastic backdrop for photography.
With the scent of freshly mown grass and roses in full bloom, this is the perfect time of year
for a wedding making the most of the outdoors. Barbeques or hog roasts and long champagne
receptions on the balcony are all possibilities for a summer wedding at The Castlefield Rooms.
Decorations for a summer wedding can be as simple or elaborate as you like as this season lends
itself to so many different themes, from an abundance of flowers to butterflies, bows and fairy lights –
you really can’t go wrong!
From the moment you turn into the cobbled street, the rich colours of the changing leaves on the trees
are a perfect starting point for a rich natural palette for an autumn wedding. You can offer warm canapés,
hot drinks and richer food such as venison or duck for your wedding breakfast.
Wedding flowers and decorations can be used to enhance the autumnal feel. You could even use pumpkins
as decorations and have unusual autumn favours and flavours, like toffee apples, to delight your guests!
Make the most of the darker evenings by putting on a standing firework display before your guests head home!
Winter is the perfect season for a real fairytale wedding. The colder days and darker nights create an intimate,
festive atmosphere and the possibility of snow could make it a truly white wedding. A Christmas theme can
be fun for everyone and enables you to utilise some of the venue’s decorations on your day. Accentuate the season
with seasonal food and drinks, such as mulled wine and roast meats, or perhaps mince pies as canapés.
