Blue and Copper Winter Wedding Inspiration

Today I’m injecting some winter vibes with this dazzling blue and copper winter wedding inspiration shoot, styled by Myrtle Floral Design and Styling and captured by Werner J Photography.

The colour palette of blue and copper, combined with trendy watercolour, works so well for a winter wedding or elopement. With a unique design and gorgeous copper calligraphy text, the watercolour wedding stationery sets the tone for what’s to come.

The shoot is set within the incredible Hertford Country Hotel in South Africa. The white walls of the room add a pure base for the styling and really make the decor stand out.

Rustic table styling gives a warming feeling. Gorgeous blue velvet and white tulle table runners, wooden chargers, geometric napkins and dark ceramic tableware sit upon the natural wooden table. Foliage drapes elegantly onto the table amongst modern copper candlestick holders and wine coolers, and the copper bistro chairs are a fantastic touch to complete the styling.

The bridesmaids look stunning in blush and copper sparkly dresses that complement the bride’s stunning wedding dress with sexy lace top and floaty tulle skirt. In contrast, the groom’s casual attire of camel coloured chinos with a blue checked jacket is very relaxed, but works perfectly.

This is one very cool styled shoot, showcasing a modern take on a winter wedding. I know you will love these ideas as much as I do…

Elegance and Warmth

“For this styled shoot we wanted to create an intimate and cosy wedding, focusing on comfort while still portraying elegance and warmth.

“We chose Hertford Country Hotel as the backdrop for a very intimate table setting with only the closest of friends sharing a feast. When deciding on colours we wanted to incorporate dark blues, blacks and copper, and the all white venue gave us a blank canvas to add the dark and cosy colours we wanted.

Cosy, Romantic Wedding Styling with Antique Tones

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.

The bride wears the most beautiful blush wedding dress that’s elegant, floaty, and has such an air of romance.

If you are looking for a modern approach to wedding styling, you’ll love these simple, elegant and very romantic ideas. So, feast your eyes on these wonderful pictures by Judy Pack…

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 d├ęcor!” – Laura Remmert Events

A Luxe Winter Wedding at a Vineyard

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.

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!

If you are looking for ideas for your winter wedding then these will wow you, but the colours will also look beautiful for weddings in all seasons. 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.”

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.
