A Winter Wonderland Wedding Dream at SRB
The Australian ‘peak’ wedding season, commonly based around sun-soaked coastlines and blossoming vineyards, begins mid – late September right through until the end of March – early April. The appeal to couples obviously being the warmer weather and buzz in the air during these busier months on our social calendars.
Whilst we do absolutely love the crazy wedding season, we must admit, when reflecting on our most memorable weddings here at San Remo Ballroom, we undoubtedly believe the magical charm of a Melbourne winter wedding is what truly wins our hearts… and of course our couple’s too! Winter weddings bring forth a unique blend of fiery romance, mood lighting and delicious hearty food – the ultimate recipe for a magical wedding day. Let’s unwrap why winter weddings are our favourites, and why you should be dreaming of one too!
Picture this: A setting reminiscent of classic love stories set underneath a grand chandelier against a picture perfect ballroom backdrop. Winter paints a canvas of moody, cozy, and romantic feels that come alive at SRB. Our space, with its blend of classic art-deco vibes and modern luxury, becomes your winter wonderland.
Captivating Photographic Moments
Winter’s subdued sunlight offers unparalleled advantages for wedding photos. During winter, the sun sits at its lowest point in the sky. The soft illumination, with or without overcast skies, paints every shot ever so beautifully, resulting in added depth, mood and texture to your photos. You’ll love how bright your skin and eyes shine through, as you won’t be squinting your way through the entire shoot! The longer sunset colours during these months also provide a generous window for those breathtaking golden hour snaps. And imagine the charm of a sudden drizzle!
Chill Vibes, No Sweats
Brides in elegant long-sleeved gowns, grooms in sharp tuxedos, all without the worry of melting makeup or sweat patches underneath their tailored suits. Winter’s cool embrace ensures that every member of the party looks pristine and photo-ready throughout the festivities.
Unlike the jam-packed spring and summer seasons, winter presents a wonderful variety of dates available for you to choose from when booking. Whilst you and your guests are more chilled, embracing the slowness of winter, you can enjoy the flexibility, allowing you to choose a date that resonates with your personal story. The relaxed pace of winter also means your guests can mark their calendars with ease, avoiding any ‘double bookings’, so everyone is able to attend your special celebration.
Flowers, Fashion, Food, and Frolic
Winter fashion has its own exquisite charm. Trending at present, you’ll find timeless long-sleeved bridal gowns, with stylish statement sleeves, that you wouldn’t want to be wearing on a hot summer’s day. We’re also loving seeing our brides opt for bold and bright styling – and winter is the season for those bright hues from beautiful fresh flowers! As for your palate? Dive into a sea of hearty meals, rich wines, and winter cocktails like the classic whisky sour. Let your guests warm their souls with mulled wine, apple pie, and sticky date delicacies.
