Four Reasons to get Married in the New Year

Looking to tie the knot this New Year in Colchester? Wedding venues don’t get any better than this.

Here at the Crowne Plaza Resort Colchester Five Lakes, we love winter weddings; whatever the weather we are able to produce a fantastic winter atmosphere in one of our flexible wedding rooms. Settled in the middle of beautiful parklands and offering stunning views over the golf courses, the hotel is one of the most welcoming wedding venues in Essex.

We strive to ensure you create wonderful memories to cherish forever. Here, our wedding coordinators disclose four reasons to get married in the New Year, once the Christmas festivities are all done and dusted.


Availability Options

Although summer is undeniably the most popular season for weddings, winter does have its advantages especially when it comes to date availability. It is slightly less common to get married in winter which does give betrothed couples more options when choosing the wedding date they ideally want.


Cost-effective Rates

Rates for winter weddings are highly linked to availability during the season. Because the winter season doesn’t face the same demands of its summer counterpart, wedding packages rates can sometimes be more flexible. Contact our wedding team now to see how we can tailor our wedding packages to suit your needs and your budget for your wedding in the New Year.


Magical Décor

With the New Year often comes a more mild climate and when lucky enough, snow makes an appearance. It doesn’t get any more magical than watching the snowflakes delicately covering our golf courses whilst you tie the knot. Our wedding coordinators can also bring the magic inside and create an enchanted atmosphere for your big day by decorating your wedding room and centre pieces.


Warm Attire

Thanks to warm and comfortable winter attire such as faux fur or wraps, the weather will not stop you from getting beautiful winter wedding photos. Step outside of the hotel and enjoy the stunning background all comfortably wrapped up in cosy wedding accessories such as stoles and gloves.


There are multiple reasons to get married in the New Year and these are only a shortlist. Winter is an exciting time and here at the hotel, we can’t wait to create wonderful memories for our future brides and grooms.
