Today’s wedding shoot is perfect bridal inspiration for a wintery day. This shoot was styled to create an elegant, sophisticated, romantic winter wedding look; different to a traditional winter wedding style. We love the silver dress and fur shrug that adds a touch of winter elegance, and the milk chocolate wrapped cake makes our mouths water!
We hope you enjoy the pictures of this beautiful winter inspired wedding shoot.
“Jenny handpicked suppliers she thought could create the winter wedding wonderland look she had envisaged for this shoot, each with their own unique style that collectively would tie in with each other beautifully.
“The wedding transport was provided by Amelia’s Classic Cars. Sophie is a gorgeous classic car, a 1959 Armstrong Siddeley Star Sapphire, one of only 100 which remain on the road today worldwide. This seemed like the perfect car to make a grand entrance in for a winter wedding celebration and tied in perfectly with the look and feel of the bride and groom’s attire.
“Jules from the Art of Flowers created some really beautiful floral arrangements that took into consideration every aspect of the shoot, just as you would if you were planning your wedding.
“When it came to decorating the castle she kept the displays simple, using plenty of cascading eucalyptus foliage. Filled jam jars lined the aisle and kept the whole area feeling natural and unstructured.
“As the wedding dress from Frocks n Frills was silver and had a 1930/40’s influence Jules felt that a loose cascade bouquet would complement this perfectly, and as we were working with a winter theme the choice of warm creams and cool whites along with grey/green foliage was the basis for all the arrangements.
“Holly Luisa created the bride’s stunning wintery curls, with Natasha Flower Make-Up Artist completing the bridal make-up using warm shades for eyes and lips, in contrast to the silver wedding gown.
“Elle really captured the brief with her styling. The overall look was elegant, sophisticated, romantic and totally different to a traditional winter wedding style. There was no rich ruby red or luxurious gold in sight, just crisp white, silver and a touch of green.
“Elle used realistic fake snow around the bases of the table decorations, lit with a soft blue LED light. She chose beautiful Elizabeth Ghost Perspex candelabras for half of the tables, and as they look like they could be made of ice they really suited the winter wonderland theme.
“For the other tables Elle created tall twiggy tree-like arrangements to create a winter woodland atmosphere. She hung beautiful glass icicles from winter bows, as well as clear glass tea light holders to twinkle magically above guests’ heads!
“For wedding stationery Jenny was looking for something both pretty and a little fun, whilst still tying in the winter wedding theme. Kirsty from the Paper Princess created some truly magical pieces. Think crisp pure white with clean lines, that wonderful iridescence when the light hits the snow.
“Emily Hankins created the favours which completed the setup on the tables. The cookies were designed to look like vintage baubles, to echo the winter theme but not be too ‘Christmas’. She chose the pale blues to fit with the white frosty theme and also to pick out the colour of the room and add a little colour to the tables, which worked really well.
“No wedding set-up would be complete without a cake. Faye from the Natural Cake Company wanted to create a natural, ethereal and elegant look. The Organic Milk Chocolate Cake was wrapped in delicate sheets of chocolate, with dripping orchids and roses inspired by icicles cascading over rocks. There were a few crystals hidden to twinkle and capture the light, and Elle completed the look by sitting the cake on a thick white fur.”
