Romantic, Elegant Winter Wedding Inspiration

Firstly, huge congratulations if you got engaged over Christmas; I’m so excited for you. I’m sure over the lazy holiday period you are enjoying looking for fabulous wedding inspiration. There’s nothing better than snuggling up on the sofa over Christmas and enjoying all the wonderful ideas, and today’s romantic, elegant winter wedding feature is nothing short of perfect wedding inspiration.

Winter is such a fabulous season, perfect for some magical romance, and the styling of this shoot shows how incredible a winter wedding can be. The muted, earthy colours of blush, burgundy, green and a pop of yellow create an elegant warmth. I am so in love with the floral displays; orchids, calla lilies, roses, chrysanthemums and an abundance of foliage feature heavily. The table arrangements look so romantic in the ornate gold vases, together with matching gold candlestick holders, and wait until you see the most incredible suspended floral display and matching bridal bouquet – they really are quite spectacular. The floral theme is also carried through to the beautiful wedding stationery.

Although the floral arrangements make a real statement, the styling is simple, elegant and understated. The styling really complements the bride’s style too. She wears a stunning lace top wedding dress that is every winter bride’s dream!

Enjoy snuggling up and looking at the wonderful pictures of these romantic, elegant winter wedding styling ideas, photographed by Jack and Jane Photography.

Romance and Classic Elegance

“Inspired by French wine country, this wedding shoot was all about romance and classic elegance. With the magnificent Franschhoek valley, Groot Drakenstein Mountains and spectacular vineyards as our backdrop, we couldn’t ask for more beauty. Lynx Wine Farm’s horse stables served as the perfect location to showcase the shoot’s stylish charm, whilst Jack and Jane Photography captured all the earthy colours wonderfully.”

Dreamy Flower Arrangements

“With winter in mind, I wanted to inspire brides with romantic, dreamy flower arrangements using earthy and deep, moody colours. I let the flowers do what they wanted, and the end result was a messy and loosely arranged, yet structured, composition. I used brown cymbidiums, red and soft pink roses, white roses for contrast and foraged greenery and autumn leaves.

“When it came to the installation, I wanted to create a big opulent appearance. I added anthuriums, tulips and amaranthus for a hint of colour alongside the roses.”

Winter wedding table styling on Christmas Tree Farm

Winter Wedding Styling on a Christmas Tree Farm

There’s only three more sleeps to go – are you excited yet? Feeling festive? If you weren’t feeling festive before, I’m sure you will after seeing these pictures by the fabulous Alicia King Photography. Taking place on a Christmas tree farm, this winter wedding shoot oozes festive charm. It’s full to the brim of the most delightful styling ideas for a Christmas wedding.

The colours used are traditional, seasonal colours for this time of year, with red, green and white running the show. With the backdrop of the snowy Christmas trees they look sublime.

If you are looking for ideas for your Christmas wedding seating plan, check out the dress maker’s mannequin dressed with a fur shrug and the most fabulous skirt made of Christmas tree sprigs, delicately adorned with guest names. This is one very cool way to showcase your seating plan.

The winter wedding styling details make the rustic wedding table come alive. From the beautiful eucalyptus, Christmas tree and rose table runner than spans the length of the table, to the array of gold candlestick holders, Christmas beer bottles with flowers, pine cone place setting decor, and cute little deer. The table looks so inviting. To top it all off there are cosy winter blankets over the chairs.

As well as the amazing tablescape, the creative team styled a Christmas wonderland in other parts of the Christmas tree farm which adds to the magic of these styling ideas.

I hope these magical winter wedding ideas make you feel fabulously festive!

Battenfeld’s Christmas Tree Farm

“One of the greatest things about living in the North East is the changing seasons – it allows us creative types to have fun with Mother Nature’s revolving backdrop. Cutting your own Christmas tree is a big Hudson Valley attraction, and we are fortunate to have one of the country’s oldest tree farms in our backyard. Battenfeld’s Christmas Tree Farm, a family run business, has been providing fresh cut trees since 1956. What better place to host a winter shoot than on a Christmas tree farm that has for decades been celebrating the most wonderful time of the year?

“The colour palette had to be rich yet natural. We wanted it to feel like the holidays but not scream Merry Christmas. Ruby red, evergreen and winter white with natural wood tones felt like a classic holiday card straight from Currier and Ives.

“The night before the shoot it snowed eight inches in Red Hook, NY, so we all woke to a winter wonderland. When we arrived on site, the evergreens greeted us like stoic soldiers with a perfect carpet of white under their wooden feet.”

Winter Wedding Table Styling

“Upon arrival to the reception, greetings from a winter mannequin with stole and pearls, adorned with tea stained escort cards in gold calligraphy. Farm tables were set with bone china and fashioned down a balsam tree aisle. We then filled in with the finest wares – vintage silver flatware along with crystal glass in gem colours. We adorned mixed wooden chairs with plaid blankets and quilts to keep guests warm. Endless evergreen and eucalyptus roping ran down the centre of the table over a linen runner, and brass candlesticks with cream candles added an extra layer of metal.

Red, Black and Gold Winter Wedding Styling

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, don’t you think? Today’s feature is another lovely dose of festive charm… a magical red, black and gold winter wedding shoot, captured by Jordan Weiland.

With Christmas nearly upon us it’s the perfect time to share these beautiful ideas. I love to see rich, deep colour combinations during the winter season. The rich reds and opulent golds, together with black, make a wonderful colour palette.

The fabulous floral arrangements are a visual delight with the addition of black grapes in the centre of the tablescape. The table styling also includes marvellous black candles, gold chargers, coloured glass, and a sparkly sequinned table runner. For the place settings the team used dark red apples with calligraphy lettering – they look amazing.

If you’re planning a winter or Christmas wedding then what do you think of these beautiful ideas?

Splurge and Save

“The winter season and the European feel of this old Scottish-style castle nestled in the Rocky Mountain foothills inspired this shoot. An epic backdrop, gorgeous lush flowers and DIY ideas, this shoot is beautiful inspiration for a winter wedding, and a great showcase of how to do a mix of a ‘splurge and save’ event.

“The invitations were a nod to old-world penmanship with calligraphy, thick paper with torn edges and a wax seal.”

Dark Florals

“Black candles and dark florals mixed with the winter snow and place settings showed the complexity of the two contrasting from one another. The florals were definitely a splurge from Alexan Events, but we paired them with DIY painted candles. The candles were so gorgeous – who knew you could paint candles whatever colour you want?

“The reception tables were a mix of metals and then the contrast of light and dark. Grapes in the florals gave a deep purple hue. The apple place names were a nod to the Scottish tradition of a wedding prophecy, created by paring an apple so that the skin comes off in one length. As the clock struck twelve it was swung round the head and thrown over the left shoulder. When it landed it would form the first letter of the name of the future spouse.

Winter White and Copper Wedding Styling

Today’s shoot is all about white and copper wedding styling, and it’s so beautiful and elegant. White and copper make a timeless pair. They shine like no other, and are the perfect match for a winter wedding.

Copper has become a really popular choice for wedding styling in recent years, and looks amazing for a winter wedding. Think about how it will glisten and shine under the twinkle of ambient lighting. Together with crisp white that resembles snow, this is an amazing colour palette.

Luxe Feel

This winter white and copper wedding styling has a wonderful luxe feel about it. The cosy vibe is modern and inviting, and these ideas offer something unique and different to the traditional colours of winter weddings we see at this time of year.

The styling team used an array of pretty green foliage which really pops against the white. I love the tablescape design laid out on a fur table cover – it looks so cosy! The place settings including marble chargers, white china and copper cutlery look so modern and sophisticated. Copper votives, vases and a pretty winter floral arrangement complete the table styling.

Bright and Bold Urban Tribal Wedding Styling

Today’s magnificent urban tribal wedding inspiration will brighten your day. We’ve featured a lot of autumn and winter wedding ideas recently so I wanted to break it up a little with a burst of colour.

The team behind this shoot, lead by the very talented Carmela Weddings, chose a warehouse in Brixton as the perfect setting for these urban tribal styling ideas. A warehouse is the perfect blank canvas if you are looking to create something totally awesome and unique.

Against the stark white walls of the warehouse, the team created the most incredible, eye-catching floral displays, particularly the amazing suspended arrangement that floats above the table adorned with beautiful foliage and vibrant, bright flowers. The flowers carried through to the stunning bridal bouquet and the small table arrangements in pretty glass vases.

The vibrant flowers complement the styling concept perfectly. For the urban tribal wedding vibe, the team included lots of modern geometric details. I love the chevron table runner which creates a focal-point of the tablescape. The geometric patterns continue through the table names and cute glitter-dipped feather name places (I love a bit of glitter).

To carry on the concept are super-cute dreamcatchers hanging gracefully from the back of the chairs. Along with the chair details, the incredible wedding cake also features dreamcatchers as little gold threaded designs. When I say ‘incredible’ wedding cake, it really is, featuring the shoot’s geometric pattern and colours.

Also, if you are looking for inspiration for a bridal arch then look no further. The one featured in this shoot is very cool, and I may be using this a lunchtime treat on Facebook very soon!

Everything about this shoot is bold and modern with such attention to detail, and the bridal style is  stunning too. The team chose two different looks for the bride, each amazing – I’m not going to say any more as I want you to see it for yourself…

I hope you enjoy looking through the pictures of this incredible urban tribal wedding styling, taken by the fabulous Amanda Karen Photography. Enjoy!

Tribal Influences

“The inspiration for this shoot stemmed from the notion that we all have our own tribe, and in London that is our urban tribe! Taking inspiration from the bold colours and geometric patterns steeped through tribal influences, we celebrated the fun of colour against the urban warehouse style of Brixton East.”
