Twilight weddings are becoming more popular at Cadbury House
More and more couples from across the South West are choosing to tie the knot in the evening, moving away from the more traditional early afternoon nuptials. The Twilight Wedding, as it has become known, is now growing in popularity at venues such as Cadbury House in Congresbury, which has been working hard to ensure it can cater for this increase in dusk ceremonies.
Matilda Burgess, wedding coordinator at Cadbury House says, “There’s been a steady increase in this new phenomenon over the past 12 months and it’s certainly something we can see continuing to grow in popularity.
“Cadbury House faces west and is renowned for its stunning views and contemporary boutique style, so opting to say ‘I do’ with the sun setting in the distance makes for a spectacular occasion.”
Those who are choosing a twilight wedding tend to skip the formal wedding breakfast and go straight on to their evening reception and with Matilda also noticing a trend in Thursday weddings, the stage is set for the wedding party to continue into the weekend.
With several rooms licensed to hold both civil marriage ceremonies and commitment ceremonies there are many options for couples to choose from and those yearning for al fresco “I dos” could consider the thatched gazebo, complete with panoramic views reaching across the North Somerset countryside and Bristol Channel.
