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.

The rustic textures and glamorous gold and cream really create a feeling of warmth, elegance and winter magic.

Our thanks go to Sweet Events Photography for sharing such a fabulous wedding inspiration shoot. Emma is going to be in the UK from May to August 2017 and would be delighted to capture your wedding…

It Came Together Perfectly

“After visiting Boutique Barn for a creative wedding shoot I had a vision for a rustic wedding shoot at the beautiful venue. It was so much fun to work with Danielle at Oh Such Style to bring the vision to life. Together with the floral talents of Lisa from All Things Floral the end result was stunning!

“We are thankful that it came together as perfectly as we had hoped, and we couldn’t have asked for a better, more talented team to help us produce this Boutique Barn wedding shoot.”
