Having a wonderful Winter Wedding with Shieldhill Castle

Having a Winter Wedding adds an element of warmth and comfort, especially while you escape the chilly temperatures to celebrate a very special day surrounded by loved ones. If you’re considering a Winter Wedding, here’s is why Shieldhill Castle will make you fall in love with this beautiful time of year. 

The beautiful manicured grounds at Shieldhill Castle are nothing short of picture perfect when covered by the soft, powdery snow glistening in the winter sunlight. But with a winter wedding, the majority of your reception will take place once the sun sets. Arrange a visit to Shieldhill Castle in the evening when you can see beautiful lighting in the cosy and inviting function rooms. 

Not only is Shieldhill Castle stunning at this time of year, it is also a functional venue. You’ll solve half your travel problems if you come to the castle as we can have both the ceremony, reception and accommodation, making it one stop venue. Then guests won’t have to travel between the two, which could take a while in bad weather

With the Winter Wedding season for Shieldhill Castle just around the corner we would love to remind you of the fabulous 25 person Winter Wedding package for £2000 which is available to book now. (October 21- March 22)

If you are interested in making your Winter Wedding a grander affair now restrictions are lifted we can also cater this package to suit you. 


To book a private viewing for your special day or chat to our Wedding and Events Team please contact events@shieldhillcastle.com and start this journey into your next chapter with Shieldhill Castle.

How to plan the ultimate engagement

Want to know how to pull off the perfect engagement in time for Valentine’s Day? 

 

It’s engagement season and  we are so excited for you. What a perfect way to start your new year off on a high note and leap into the new chapter as an engaged couple.

Even with Covid still hindering your “ideal” plans, we can help guide you into making this proposal perfect for you both! Let’s get to it then. 

 

  1. Choose the wedding band (the ring that is most likely to suit and fit your partner) 

 We are lucky to have the option of going to have some of the best jewellery stores in Edinburgh, Glasgow and across Scotland.Unless your proposal is spontaneous – which is a risky yet still a fun strategy – you should always have the ring to seal the deal at the time of popping the big question, otherwise, it’ll feel a bit like an anti-climax. If you’re worried about getting the ring right, just have a look at the sort of jewellery your partner usually wears and you should get a good idea of their taste. Don’t go for something just because it’s expensive or big, got for something that resembles your love for them in the way you have took your time to think about them whilst buying it. 



  1. It’s all about you two 

We do love are-make of classic movies, however your partner has probably seen the countless films with wedding proposals that show everything from skywriting, getting down on one knee on an exotic beach, romantic restaurants that are  overpriced. But ultimately, if none of these reflects you as a couple it will feel a bit…uncomfortable and cheesy??. If your other half hates attention for example, suddenly dropping to one knee in the middle of a restaurant will not go down as well as you may hope.So make sure your proposal suits both of you and listen out for key hints from your partner on what not to do. Think about what are the most important elements in your lives? Do you love dogs for example? Then go out a walk and visit a landmark with your partner or a spot you normally go to and let the dog guide you into this big moment!! Or don’t leave the house – home is where the heart is after all – and propose with your morning coffee. Or if your hotel lovers, head out for weekend away and ask the venue to help you, at Shieldhill Castle our team are here for you. It’s all about the two of you after all so don’t be swayed into a proposal that belongs to someone else or in a princess movie. 

 

  1. Don’t over-plan

 Fail to prepare, prepare to fail but don’t overdo it. Your proposal should still feel natural and if you over-engineer it, you’re at risk of making it sound a little fake and robotic. Have an idea of what you want to say, for sure, but don’t write down a CV of why you are fit for the role as fiancée.  Speak from the heart and everything else should fall into place.

 

  1. Choose how to capture it

 You will remember this moment for your whole life, but have a think about whether or not you want to capture it another way too. Do you want to hire a photographer or recruit your friends or family as cinematographers? Or you might just be able to hide your phone to capture the moment yourself. You will always have a memory of the moment but you may want to capture it and share the act in action rather than just the aftermath. 

 

  1. Finally!!!! Make sure you’ll get a “Yes”!

At the end of the day you choose how you’re going  to do it, at Shieldhill Castle we’d like to offer you our biggest congratulations for when the happy “Yes!” moment comes. And remember to contact our wedding team to find out more about a hosting your special day at Shieldhill Castle.
