Winter weddings can be delicately frosty, with palest pastels and sparkle. Or you can bring warmth to your wedding style with vibrant, rich florals and a bold colour palette. Either way, opting for an alternative twist to the style of your wedding is a winner!!

“The shoot was organised by Ana Gely A – Photography  and features a winter wedding that is far from the ordinary. “For styling inspiration we tapped into the unique features of the venue where we did the shoot. The Great Barn at Headstone Manor & Museum is a two part estate featuring a manor house museum currently under restoration and a beautiful barn which is used for weddings. The place is steep in history and local traditions. It has recently been reopened to the public and we were lucky to be the first to ever do a photo shoot there.

In the English Wedding Book I mentioned greenery and foliage as one of 2016’s major wedding trends – and the shoots I’m seeing on all the big international wedding blogs are saying the same thing… so I was thrilled when lovely Daniela from Ferri Photography submitted her images from a fabulously beautiful, artistic wedding styled shoot where the luscious leaves took centre stage!

The theme for the shoot is set around the story of a local, Italian, village girl who falls in love with an English boy. After what seems like a lifetime away from each other, today is finally the day they will get married.

In July 2015 I was selected to attended a Fine Art Wedding workshop called a Beautiful Way. The workshop took place at the stunning Almonry Barn in Somerset. Together with 12 other other photographers we spent the day exploring the fine art style of photography, making friends, laughing and eating some amazing food!”

Choose a venue with wow factor to impress your guests

The Hurlingham Club has a magnificent arched ceiling your guests will love – it’s a blank canvas with plenty of natural daylight for wedding photography – and needs little decor to create the most luxurious wedding reception space for your luxury celebration.
