There’s something so magical about winter – and if you marry in the colder months of the year you’ll have plenty of opportunity to make your day unique. Today’s shoot uses some more unusual winter styling touches – I adore the twigs and white cotton balls – alongside traditional pine cones and plenty of sparkle! This gorgeous mini film by Baxter & Ted adds a unique flavour to winter wedding styling – I hope you love it!

Today’s blog is full of country charm for those of you planning a winter wedding. White orchids, obligatory pine cones, adorable little white cotton balls and handcrafted table centrepieces make today’s shoot magical. The bride and groom are real: they eloped last summer but had no photographs taken of the day. The intimacy of today’s blog captures their love as well as the romance of an intimate winter wedding – and I love it.

An uber charming photo and film shoot of an intimate winter English elopement with a real life couple who returned to this private garden estate venue bordering Dartmoor National Park on the banks of a Devon river where they were married in their own elopement last summer before having a big wedding reception nearby.

Pete and Claire are one of those couples who instantly make me smile. They’re a perfect match, absolutely gorgeous and their smiles warm my heart. They styled a rustic barn wedding at The Barn at South Milton, and together with family and friends created a wonderful day full of personality and charm.

Claire and Pete poured their hearts into styling a really beautiful day, and I love the little details: the seasonal flowers, handmade paper stars, printed napkins, bunting and logs full of flowers are just adorable!
