Bride and groom at wedding outside in the snow

It’s not often we get to share a wedding shoot with reindeer… so we’re rather excited about today’s feature. As it’s nearly Christmas we wanted to bring you something festive, and this should be just the ticket. We are in love with this winter wedding shoot which took place at The Deer Park Country House Hotel, not only for the reindeer, but the abundance of Christmas cheer that is in the details. Grab yourself a cup of coffee (or mulled wine if you prefer, we won’t tell anyone) and take a look at this beautifully styled winter wedding shoot, photographed by Firetop Photography…

“The aim of this styled shoot was to portray The Deer Park Hotel as a wedding venue for both winter and Christmas weddings. The inside table settings are more overtly Christmas themed and the outdoor shots demonstrate how a winter wedding could look at the venue’s beautiful grounds; a pathway lit with tea lights leading to The Summerhouse which is licensed for weddings, cosy hot water bottles and blankets for your guests, and a glass of mulled wine for the bride and groom as they pose for their photographs. The accent colour of deep red is picked up in the bouquet, the roses in the brides hair and her groom’s burgundy velvet jacket. The winter scene is completed by Dancer and Prancer who live at a local farm three miles away from the hotel.”
