Winter wedding styling can be very traditional, and it’s tricky sometimes to find ideas online for winter wedding decor with a bit of a difference. Red roses anyone? Maybe it’s just me… but I get a bit bored of red roses in winter. If you fancy something a little different to brighten up and warm your wedding styling when there’s snow outside, today’s gloriously rich shoot will be right up your street.
Wedding photographer Judi Checketts got together with florist Nicola from Foxgloves and Roses and Tessa from Daisy Cakes for a shoot at Stanton House Hotel to show how a winter wedding can incorporate rich reds and pinks to create an exciting and fresh look. Nicola’s gorgeous country winter bouquets and Tessa’s pretty festive cakes with a twist coordinate with quirky table decoration ideas for a fresh take on winter wedding styling which looks bright and exciting.
The wild tendrils and cascading flowers make this bouquet more interesting than a perfectly presented red rose bouquet. I love the mixture of flowers and textures – perfect for a creative bride and it shows you can still make a big statement with your wedding flowers when it’s cold outside!
It’s still nice to incorporate a few festive touches – shop around for quirky Christmas decor (on Etsy, for example) – this little robin is cute as can be! I found little handmade birds’ nests in a tiny shop in the Lake District this winter as well as lots of felt decorations in all shapes and sizes. Think creatively and you’ll find wonderful ways to incorporate these into your wedding styling for a quirky and fresh look!
For an English country wedding in winter you can take inspiration from your wedding venue. How will they be decorating for Christmas, and will the baubles still be around on your wedding day? A country house might have antlers on the walls so why not play with the theme by adding wildlife of your own… this stag makes for a lovely presentation plate for cupcakes!
The timeless beauty of holly and ivy, glitter and sparkle work through winter and will add warmth to any wedding from November through to January and February. Once you take away the Christmas trimmings they can look fabulous as winter flowers and foliage, and used with candles they’ll really add warmth to your wedding tables.
