Winter weddings are becoming increasingly more popular for a number of different reasons. Here I've put together the 10 top reasons why you should be choosing this time of year to get wed:

1. A White Wedding - If you're really lucky, you could have a dusting of snow on your day, making your photographs look magical. A winter wonderland wedding!

2. Romantic Ambiance - Winter = cold weather. However, with the nights drawing in sooner than in the summer, then you can make the most of your indoor venue. Add twinkling fairy lights, use candles to light up walkways and, if your budget stretches, put on a firework display against the dark night backdrop.
