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.

A Christmas Wedding at The Watermill Hotel

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… As it’s December I feel I’m now officially allowed to mention the C word! I’m trying not to peak too soon, but looking at these amazing festive pictures of Claire and Kyle’s beautiful Christmas wedding at The Watermill Hotel is making my excitement for Christmas start already.

I love a Christmas wedding, whether styled with a modern take on Christmas decor or with a traditional flair like this wedding. For me a Christmas wedding is all about the lights – lots and lots of twinkling lights – and that’s what I love about Claire and Kyle’s wedding.

Along with the abundance of twinkling lights, there are of course Christmas trees, baubles, pine cones, snowflakes and the prettiest bouquets of red roses mixed with spruce foliage, holly and berries. I really love the cute buttonholes with spruce, berries and little pine cones.

Claire chose a gorgeous wedding dress with an incredible tulle-layered skirt, finished with a beautiful sparkling belt that glistened under the twinkling Christmas lights. Her dress was completed with a fluffy white shrug.

You’ve got to love a red bow tie for a Christmas wedding – Kyle and his best man look so dapper! The red of the bow ties matches the beautifully elegant bridesmaid dresses, chair bows and the ribbon on their stunning wedding cake. This just shows how much attention to detail Claire and Kyle have put in to their wedding styling. You are going to love it!

Grab a cuppa (it’s probably a bit early in the morning for mulled wine!) and enjoy being in Christmas wedding heaven whilst you look at these beautiful pictures by Masha Unwerth.

Magical Setting

“Kyle and I met on a very random night out in Watford; I was out with my sister and Kyle with work mates. There were a few mojitos consumed that night!

“When Kyle proposed we were on holiday in Disney, Florida, staying in the Disney Hotel and visiting the parks. We are both fans of all things Disney and big kids at heart.

“Kyle had booked dinner in the Beauty and the Beast restaurant one evening. The setting was magical with projected snow falling and beautiful décor. Between courses, Kyle got down on one knee. I thought he had dropped something, until he produced a ring in a lit ring box and asked me to marry him… I said yes, of course.”

A Nordic Winter Wedding Shoot

Not all Christmas weddings have to be filled with baubles and Christmas trees. If you are having a winter or Christmas wedding and want to keep within the ‘theme’ of Christmas but not go the whole hog, how about using some Nordic inspiration? Today’s Nordic winter wedding shoot, captured by Ellie Grace Photography, gives some fabulous alternative ideas to the traditional Christmas wedding look.

The main features of Nordic decor are evergreen branches and trees, pine cones and green wreaths. We adore the ambiance that the creative team have achieved with this almost rustic look. The bridal look is exquisite too with the beautiful wedding dress with its plunging neckline and lace sheer lace sleeves.

You really are in for a treat with the beautiful ideas in this Nordic winter wedding shoot. Enjoy!

Avoiding Christmas

“I wanted to create a winter wedding shoot that had nothing to do with Christmas. Christmas shoots can sometimes be a bit cheesey, so I wanted to stay as far away from that as possible. Nordic is a really strong look, so I wanted to go down that route.
