Why choose a winter wedding with Isaacs on the Quay

By | News

Crisp bright daylight and twinkling lights in the early evening…winter weddings can be truly spectacular and, at Isaacs on the Quay, the colder months bring a special dimension to your big day. Winter weddings can also represent great value for money and, for these reasons among many, they’re becoming more and more popular.

While summer is still the favourite season for couples getting married, a winter wedding offers a beautiful backdrop, too. That’s especially true of weddings at Isaacs on the Quay, where the carefully restored Grade I and II* listed buildings offer a unique indoor setting that is complemented perfectly by their stunning Ipswich Waterfront surroundings.

Whether you want the big day to have a festive, Christmas feel, or if you dream of a white-winter wedding, the team at Isaacs on the Quay are on hand to bring your ideas into reality.


A touch of romance
With darkness falling earlier in the winter time, your evening guests will be treated to a real wonderland on the Ipswich Waterfront, with fairy lights bobbing on the boats in the quay and along the quayside, too.

At Isaacs we dress up your wedding venue to bring real atmosphere, adding extra romance to your occasion.

White winter weddings
It would be an amazing stroke of luck to have snow on your winter wedding day, but a touch of frost on the Ipswich Waterfront, as well as some stunning sunsets, set the scene for some amazing photos.

Remember, in winter it’s a good idea to book your wedding ceremony fairly early in the day, so you make use of the daylight for photos, before your evening guests arrive.

Deck the halls for a festive scene
For weddings during the festive season, Isaacs delivers an even more magical backdrop, decorated with Christmas trees and lights for extra sparkle.

The Christmas holidays also mean that more of your guests may already have time booked off, giving them more opportunity to attend and making a mid-week wedding even better.

Whatever the weather
Of course, everyone prefers fair weather for their wedding day but, come rain or shine, Isaacs offers a great setting for your marriage ceremony, for your celebrations and for your photos too.

Our wedding coordinators create the perfect indoor wedding, so you don’t need to worry about the weather.

Making more of your wedding
Winer weddings represent great value for money, and availability is often easier to find, too. At Isaacs on the Quay, you can take advantage of a range of great, hassle-free packages. Prices start from just £4,995, including use of our Ceremony Room and Reception Areas, as well as an overnight stay in the Merchant House.

Alternatively, you can work with our wedding coordinators to create a wedding package that’s tailored especially to you. Whichever route you choose, you’ll have access to your own wedding coordinator, who will assist with your wedding planning – making it the perfect day.
