Your Sign to Have a Winter Wedding at Eccles Hotel & Spa

Summer may be a popular time to host most wedding celebrations, but there is something so special and magical surrounding the idea of having a Winter wedding, just like the fairy tale wedding you dreamed of having when you were young.

Winter weddings take away a lot of the wedding fatigue that many couples have when it comes to planning their special day. There tends to usually be more availability to host your wedding in the perfect venue as well as that, you know everyone you love will be available to attend as the winter months usually don’t clash with holidays and other commitments.

Hosting your wedding during the winter months is also very different! It will make your special day stand out from the crowd. Beautiful lights, candlelight ambiance, the warm and cosy feeling you get from having the celebrations inside as well as enjoying all the comforting flavours of good food that awaits you at the feast.

It gives you a chance as a couple to create that fairy tale wedding that you’ve always wanted. Use dramatic colour palettes to make your special day beautiful from start to finish. Think of the decorations, the outfits, the flower displays and of course many venues will already be decorated for the festive period!

The photographs captured during the season will reflect how wonderful how magical your winter wedding day was. The different lighting from that time of year and all your loved ones in attendance will make your captured moments so special. 

Eccles Hotel & Spa is the perfect venue for your winter wedding. A beautiful and cosy indoor space during the winter months. Whether you prefer a small and intimate occasion or a banquet for up to 250 people, from the moment you make an inquiry with our wedding coordinator, Marie Dooley, we are dedicated to creating the perfect day for you.

Look forward to a red carpet welcome and a sparkly toast for the happy couple. Your wedding dinner and drinks receptions will be carefully prepared by award-winning head chef Eddie Attwell with the best of West Cork local and seasonal produce.

With 59 rooms and suites, you can book out the whole hotel and party the night away. And for the happy couple, there’s the newly refurbished Yeat’s Suite with its own balcony overlooking Bantry Bay, a spacious living area and a generous bathroom that features a copper clad free standing bath. 

We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting an intimate and personal Winter Wedding Showcase on Sunday, October 29th from 1-4 pm.

This showcase will give wedding couples an opportunity to meet our expert weddings team and see our Ilnacullin ballroom set up in all its splendour for a Wedding reception. It’s everything you could imagine and more…

Our Wedding Showcase is not like your “usual” Wedding Fair… So there will be no dress suit hire, photographers, bands etc.

It’s all about YOU!

Expect a welcome prosecco and canape reception, to give a flavour of what you can look forward to if you book your wedding with us at Eccles Hotel & Spa.

Couples attending the showcase will also have the opportunity to learn more about our new Winter Elegance Offer. This Wedding Package includes an incredible 25% discount* on all new weddings booked for Winter 2023 & 2024*.

Tickets for the Wedding Showcase are free but couples can make the most of the weekend and book an overnight stay with breakfast and a three-course dinner at a special rate, simply contact the reservations team for more information.
