Winter weddings can mean frosty, ice blues and silver, or rich tones, warming reds and candlelight… today we’re thrilled to be sharing these gorgeously vibrant wedding style ideas from a wonderfully talented team of Cornish wedding suppliers at The Cow Shed.

The flowers are rich, red, with textures and tons of foliage. Lighting and candles are key. Rustic styling (twigs? we LOVE!) and mosses make this a wedding styled shoot we could just melt our little hearts right into.

And then there’s the location. The fabulously dramatic coastline and those incredible skies. This is the first time we’ve seen an Ian Stuart gown in a clifftop setting and oh, it’s magical.

Imagine yourselves delightedly warmed in a luxe winter barn wedding, or escaping together for a romantic clifftop elopement as the sun goes down… either way, like me, you will fall in love with today’s inspiration feature. Huge thanks to Ellie at The Cow Shed for submitting this dreamy shoot to the English Wedding Blog, and to wonderful Lucy Turnbull Photography for her stunningly atmospheric and beautiful images.

I’m a little bit in love with today. I am feeling full of the joys of spring – and we have so many wonderfully floral, vibrant and fresh wedding style features heading your way over the next few weeks I can’t wait. But today – today’s a little more special than most.

I’m thrilled to be featuring a styled wedding shoot by my friend and sponsor Amanda Karen Photography, with some of the loveliest names in the UK wedding industry. The colours – a super pretty palette of lilac and lemon – are divine. The details are just perfect. Those beautiful ribbons by Kate Cullen… fabulous. Stationery is by Megan Riera, whose gorgeous looping letterforms are right up my street! And those amazing flowers… they’re the work of the incredibly talented Jodie at Acacia. I’m so in love with today, I can’t tell you!Claire

In the English Wedding Book (do you have your copy? Download it for FREE!) I mentioned that the trend for woodland and boho weddings was beginning to evolve into something more. I adore a woodland wedding; I’m a country girl through and through. The idea of disappearing into nature for a romantic celebration is magic to my ears – and I stumbled across a very different little wedding venue which could appeal to other country lovers…

The Cowshed at Freathy Farmhouse is as rustic as you can imagine; a real cowshed, and something of a tardis, albeit an insanely pretty one in today’s shoot. The outside is a simple farm building; the inside has been turned into a gorgeous, floral, cosy and welcoming space for brides and grooms.
