These cosy, romantic wedding styling ideas show that sometimes very simple styling is all it takes to create real beauty.
Opulent, rich fabrics like grey velveteen linens mix beautifully with the gorgeous muted tones of the floral design. I love the pink, blush and grey with a hint of dark burgundy in the floral arrangements, and the gold table cutlery. This ethereal, romantic styling would look fabulous for weddings in any season, but particularly autumn or cosy winter weddings.
A four tier wedding cake, with a beautiful grey marbled look and finished with delicate flowers, complements the stationery beautifully.

Modern Table Setting
“We designed this shoot to be cosy, a bit modern, fresh and very romantic. Grey velveteen linens gave a cosy winter base, and the antique gold container of the beautiful flowers in rich, muted, antique tones added a romantic touch. Matte plates and matte gold flatware kept the table setting modern.
“A unique salad, “Winter Table”, featuring a Poached Pear and Blue Cheese Marble on Black Pepper Sable and White Balsamic Vinaigrette was created as a fun riff on a typical plate of greens. This perfect first course also looked perfect with the décor!” – Laura Remmert Events
Anja and Charl’s luxe winter wedding at Vondeling vineyard near Cape Town oozes elegance and charm. At the vineyard there is a white fairytale chapel that combines old world charm with modern elegance – such a unique and beautiful place to exchange vows. Anja arrived at the chapel in a 1956 Classic Rover in racing green.
Anja and Charl chose to have a winter wedding. In keeping with the season Anja wore a white wedding dress with the most exquisite detail, including long sheer and lace sleeves, stunning scalloped edge train, eye-catching plunging lace neckline and sexy plunging back. The detail of this dress is so divine. To keep warm Anja wore a cute fur wrap around her shoulders.
Anja’s bouquet of beautiful luscious deep burgundy red, white and cream roses framed with eucalyptus contrasted her dress beautifully. Charl wore a complementing buttonhole with a deep red rose and sprig of eucalyptus, and he even matched his tie and socks with the deep burgundy red.
The floral arrangements in the chapel complemented Anja’s bridal blooms, and the reception tablescapes were elegant yet simple. Floral arrangements placed on round mirrors with candles in pretty cut glass votives added to the winter ambiance. Each place setting was laid with a silver charger and glass plate with a napkin wrapped with an elegant laser-cut paper design. The top table for Anja and Charl was set in front of the cosy fire with a long mirror adorned with floral arrangements and candles in tall class candlestick holders.
This vineyard wedding is so elegant and full of winter wedding must-haves. I hope you enjoy looking through these pretty pictures by Michelle Du Toit.

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!

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.”
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.
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.”
“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.
