Today’s wedding is pretty special, and all kinds of glamorous and elegant with a modern twist. Between Christmas and New Year is one of the loveliest times to get married – it’s a time of year when family is close to all our hearts, and that for me makes a wedding even more special.

I love the sparkling metallics dotted through Danielle and Martin’s day, the luxe fabrics and feathers, the candles and soft floral styling. It all comes together perfectly to create a decadent art deco look – and the opulent touches are perfect for the time of year!

Of course you can do the splits in your wedding dress. You can also look as effortlessly glamorous as any Hollywood leading lady, marry the gorgeous man of your dreams, smile all day long and party until you drop. And to anyone who doesn’t love a sparkler send-off? You’re wrong!

Everything about today’s fabulously glamorous and fun winter wedding will show you this is how it’s done – and it’s beautiful from beginning to end. The venue – Rudding Park in Harrogate – is fabulous. The special touches Jess and Andy incorporated into their day are wonderful (especially the mirror table plan!) – it’s all simply breathtaking. The trick is to book an amazing photographer to capture every second for you, and they nailed that too!

So today I really want to say that weddings should be about memories, celebration, belly laughs and so much love you could burst… yet at the same time, Holly wears the most incredible dress for her wedding to James that part of me is holding back just a little bit and thinking that at least half of this blog post should be about just how beautiful that dress is… argh!! Because, isn’t it?! Wow.

The story of a winter wedding by documentary photographers York Place Studios (30)

I love featuring weddings from our wonderful friends and sponsors at York Place Studios. They’re fantastic documentary wedding photographers who are different. They do more than capture the atmosphere of a wedding day; they grab the wedding and bring its spirit and laughter right through to the screen. And for their brides and grooms I’m sure those images are so powerful they’re transported right back into every heart-bursting moment with every single shot.

I love this time of year: we’re moving slowly from featuring the best weddings of the summer to sharing our favourite autumn and winter weddings… and as the nights draw closer and we all remember our love for cosy jumpers, it’s really lovely to see winter weddings back on the blog!

I absolutely love Sarah and Alex’s Chester Town Hall wedding. They moved on to Oddfellows Chester for the reception – a fantastic venue set in the heart of Chester. It is a quirky hotel, in a grade II listed Georgian building.

The wedding cake is so striking – I love their brave choice of black icing and gold sugar flowers – so exquisite, different and beautiful.  The sophisticated black and gold colour scheme throughout the day makes their wedding so unique – I love it.

Documentary Wedding Photographers York Place Studios create images which are instantly recognisable for their stories: beautifully lit, exciting and vibrant wedding photography which captures the imagination – and I promise you, every single image is worth stopping for as you scroll down the page.

Anna and Ben’s Northbrook Park wedding is glorious. They were blessed with bright sunshine in February; the day is simply so full of smiles and laughter – it looks so much fun, I could be enchanted by their images all day long.

I wanted to share a really pretty wedding with you all today – something elegant and graceful, with a wonderful sense of English charm and tranquility – and I couldn’t think of a lovelier wedding than Christie and Ben’s day. Christie is so very beautiful – a Devon bride whose timeless style reminds me of Audrey Hepburn – with Ben her perfectly handsome leading man. They married at Symondsbury Tithe Barn and chose lovely Linus Moran Photography to capture their day.

“On the day, keep making time for each other. Ben and I kept stealing moments where we would find a quiet spot to soak in the view of our wedding, hold hands, kiss and share tales!

I’ve heard people say nothing changes when you get married. I disagree – there’s a monumental shift and it’s a wonderful one. I love being married. I love hearing Ben introduce me proudly as his wife.

Devon brides and grooms might already know Hannah Taylor – today’s beautiful bride and fabulously creative wedding stylist. It fascinates me to see wedding industry insiders’ weddings – and Hannah really pulled out all the stops to make her wedding to Michael stand out from the crowd. It’s deliciously alternative, breathtakingly beautiful and such a fabulous example of a truly individual day. Hannah and Michael are both gorgeous – this really is a treat and I hope you’ll LOVE their wedding photos as much as I do!

“I did my own flowers which l kept to a minimum as we had a February wedding when flowers aren’t plentifull. I used lots of accessories instead on our dinning table – fabrics, cut glass bottles and candles. My bouquet was made up from silk, artificial and fresh flowers.

We mainly focused our decoration on the house dinning room and chapel as bridwell’s such a beautiful house it didn’t need much else. I love making and creating – I’m doing it most days but for other peoples weddings this time it was for us. Yes it felt extra special!. I made and provided all our decor.

I LOVE all the details of this wedding… the dried flowers, Thomas’s suit (I love it when a groom wears something different to the norm) and Danielle is just so beautiful – welcome to the wedding of a fabulous couple whose gorgeous wedding DIY and wonderful wedding planning advice will inspire you so, so much!

We were looking for a candid, informal approach to our photography. Someone who could capture all the emotion of the day as naturally as possible, someone that we felt comfortable to be around, and who was also affordable! After researching for many hours at countless websites and suppliers, we came across Damian. We liked the look of his work online and his portfolios, so we contacted him for further details. After meeting him at our home, we knew instantly he was our photographer!

Josie and Simon’s wedding is just fabulous: the colour they created in every aspect of their day is just wonderful for a January wedding. Peacock feathers look stunning in a British flower bouquet; herbs as favours and place settings are perfect, and I adore Josie’s gorgeously vibrant wedding dress – you’ll love this!

Chance and Google led us to Carol. We knew that we would be getting married in an iconic venue, that needed someone who knew it to photograph it well. We searched for online portfolios of the Bodleian and found Carol’s. We liked the style of photography and we liked the range of couples in her photos – not all couples are 20-something instagram supermodels! Then we met her and she put us at ease, and we felt comfortable with her taking care of our special day.

I LOVE this wedding!! It’s wintry but not too Christmassy (which means I can happily publish it in spring!) and the bride and groom are gorgeous. I especially love Tom’s tweed suit and cap – and Katherine’s hair is sooooo beautiful. The little mice holding flowers are the icing on the cake… just wonderful.

Our wedding flowers by Hollyhocks Florist were beautful dark purple Calla Lilies, amnesia roses and gyp – looked amazing! It was Christmas so we had beautiful decorations for free! A floor to ceiling high Christmas tree, and miniature ones in the windows. We went for hessian bows on all the chairs. Our invitations, order of service and confetti were all homemade. They took a long time, but they were cheap and added some extra love to the day!

I’ve fallen head over heels for this enchanting winter wedding. Katie’s Jesus Peiro dress is fabulous – she’s truly radiant in every shot and the dress fits their elegant, minimal style so beautifully. I love the rays of sunshine and how magical the early evening portraits look – and the little details for your Pinterest boards make this gorgeous day a perfect English Wedding Blog feature.

I originally headed to Marrime Bridalwear to try on a Pernovia, long sleeve, backless dress, so to finally leave with a halterneck and full skirt Jesus Peiro dress was a complete surprise. I would not have even considered the dress on the hanger, if it wasn’t for my mum and bridesmaid. Reluctantly, I tried it on; yet, it was the only dress that resulted in numerous tears and a huge smile. It even had pockets… I was in love!
Moral of the story: your mum and bridesmaid really do know you best.

Baby, it’s cold outside… but you know, I’m still loving snuggly jumpers and sneaky hot chocolates and evening cuddles… winter has a spirit all of its own and I’m in no hurry to see the end of these chilly, beautiful days. But I’m biased: I’ve been completely and utterly won over by today’s gorgeous winter wedding inspiration. The word wonderland was made for the beauty you’re about to see… a combination of a luxe winter wonderland with a hint of silver, fluffy cotton candy, and geode crystals.
