We asked Melissa Davidson, Wedding and Events Manager to let us in on her top ten tips for winter weddings at Melville Castle and here they are:

1. Always take at least 5 minutes to yourselves, this is one of the most important days in your life .. enjoy it!

2. Always have some form of heating, my favourite is a faux fur over the shoulder coat

3. Glitter, Glitter, Glitter, nothing says winter wedding more than a bit of sparkle

4. Remember it gets dark much earlier, embrace this and have your ceremony and reception with romantic candle light

5. Nothing says winter wedding like a crackling fire, like the one at the entrance of Melville Castle

6. Favours dont need to be tablet. Get festive and wintry by having sparklers, which can be very cost effective too!

7. Of course winter weddings have to be near Christmas with a REAL Christmas tree and maybe even a visit from Santa and a bit of mistletoe

8. Fairy lights draped throughout our marquee are the most magical thing at Melville Castle

9. Mulled wine is always a good alternative for fizz and keeps everyone toasty

10. Finally my last tip would be come prepared .. we are in Scotland why not have alternative WELLIES to make sure you get the best pictures possible
