I do love a Winter’s wedding. Do you? There’s something about the cosiness of it all, the twinkly lights sparkling, candle flames gently flickering, the fire in the hearth warming the rooms. Funnily enough I’m not necessarily a lover of Winter as a season in itself, but I do believe in embracing the season you’re in and bringing all the hygge when you can!
So this gorgeous wedding took place over Christmas and the tree was still up with all of its pretty decorations. The street outside the hotel was still decorated too.
Catherine did an amazing job transforming the pub with her gorgeous foliage garlands on the tables, and her flowers flowing over the mantelpieces as well as her striking floral arrangements dotted around the space.
Martha from Anemone Style brought her elegant yet modern touch to style everything beautifully. There was a feeling of warmth that came through with the colours of caramel, beige, tan and toffee as well as antique brass details.
There was an air of simplicity about everything in the wedding. A simple wedding gown, a laidback reception, thoughtful decorations, delicious food. The cake itself was understated with its clean buttercream silhouette - embellished with a simple cluster of flowers. I’ve been working on my flower arranging skills so that when I decorate a cake with fresh flowers - I do it in a way to make each and every one of the flowers be seen. In an organic and natural way, but at the same time to showcase the flowers.
So the saying goes, 'a picture is worth a thousand words' so here are some atmospheric photos to tell you the story of this beautiful couple's wedding day....
