Today I’m delighted to share the incredible pictures from Hannah and Gordon’s winter wedding at Dewsall Court. The ceremony and reception both took place in the Wainhouse, the venue’s stunning barn space. It was the perfect backdrop for the couple’s rustic wedding styling, and looked simply breathtaking when lit by candlelight for the evening celebrations.
Hannah and Gordon wanted an informal wedding day. They used lots of foliage to create simple yet beautiful styling, and an abundance of candles and lanterns created the ‘winter sparkle’ they wanted. Unstructured, natural floral arrangements added to the rustic vibe, with cream and ivory flowers complementing winter foliage perfectly for the bouquets, table arrangements and stunning ceremony arch.
Talking of stunning, what about Hannah’s wedding dress! She looked incredible in her long sleeved Margaux Tardits dress with embroidered detail. The bridesmaids’ metallic maxi dresses added even more sparkle to the day, whilst Gordon and his groomsmen braved the cold in tweed kilts and jackets.
Breaking tradition, Hannah and Gordon decided against having a first dance, instead doing a variation of the Virginia Reel (Ceilidh dance) and inviting their guests to join them. They also had 100 vegan cupcakes instead of a wedding cake, to celebrate their friend’s 30th birthday which was on the same day.
This wedding really shows that you don’t have to follow any rules when it comes to planning your big day. I hope you enjoy looking through these beautiful pictures, captured by Dean Jones Photography.
