Your East Midlands Wedding - December 2022/January 2023 (Issue 53)

THE PERFECT SETTING We’re just starting planning our big-day, but neither of us have a clue what we should look for when booking a venue. Can you help? When initially looking at venues, it’s essential to find somewhere you both love – all the smaller details can be worked out at a later date. Pick a property that you’ll look back on for years to come and love every time you visit or view the wedding photos. Think about what’s important to you when looking around venues, whether it be a gorgeous room for the ceremony, lovely grounds for pictures or plenty of accommodation for loved ones. Each couple has different priorities, so finding yours will help when searching for the perfect location. Natalie Bircher and Caroline Holloway | Kilworth House Hotel WALKING IN A WINTER WONDERLAND We’re planning our winter wedding and I’m looking for the perfect look for the time of year, what hairstyles would you suggest? I love winter weddings, espeically the sparkles and cosy receptions, but the weather can play havoc with your hair! If you intend to spend some time outside, your safest bet would be to opt for an updo. The style will ensure your hair will be back and secure, so you won’t have to worry about curls dropping or your locks blowing around in the wind. If you’re planning to spend the day inside or are minimising outdoor photos, a half-up or down style can look beautiful and will keep you warmer! You can go down the route of clip-in hair extensions if you’re worried about curls dropping. The extensions will not only hold a curl well but adds longevity to the look. Hollywood waves are a great on-trend option for a glamorous winter wedding, or a smooth textured updo is a timeless and low-maintenance style that will look great with most outfits.
