Let’s talk winter weddings! With so many couples postponing their summer and spring month weddings, due to the pandemic, lots are finding new dates aren’t available for the next year. 2020 couples were trying to move to 2021 dates that are already booked. Now 2021 couples are looking to move to 2022 in some cases too, leaving very few summer and spring dates as we are coming up to being over a year behind on weddings.
So, how about a winter wedding instead? There are some huge bonuses to winter weddings. Not only are you more likely to get the venue and suppliers you want for your date. You’ll also have more chance of getting guests too. Summer months mean summer holidays. Just as weddings have been stopped for a year, holidays have too. Chances are if you have a large summer wedding, some of your chosen guests won’t be able to attend due to being on holiday.
A winter wedding has some really nice looks too. When you think winter, you think stunning dark starlight skies, romantic cuddles on the sofa and sparkly gold shades too. With a winter wedding, you can have all this and more.
Setting The Tone
Like this winter wedding inspired shoot for example. It really brings the wintery season to life. It uses all the traditional images and festive colours of winter that are in your mind. The golden and honey tones bring warmth to the winter wedding shoot and crisp wintery whites and magical golds are like the icing on the cake, literally!
This winter wedding shoot brings together the traditional feel of a wedding, with the bohemian personal style of the happy couple perfectly. The curved stationery with the bold curvy fonts adds that really nice touch of personality, as does the white flower wedding hairpiece on the bride. The white fluffy feathers throughout the wedding add the feeling of lightly falling snow, while adding a fluffy warmth to the theme which is always needed at a winter wedding.
Of course, we couldn’t mention this shoot without talking about the stunning starlight backdrop which just oozes elegance, romantic and the essence of festive lights and starry night skies. This backdrop was used behind the happy couple for their wedding vows to frame photos perfectly. However, as the darker evening arrived this made an incredible backdrop for some really romantic and beautiful shots of the happy couple showing everyone just how in love they are.
This wedding venue was a family farm that had been transformed into a breath-taking wedding venue. The venue was taken into consideration throughout the wedding too. Just look at the brides wedding bouquet of countryside flowers, blooms and reeds for example.
Many couples forget to consider their venue in with the theme of the wedding, but the venue is the first thing that your guests will see. A good wedding décor company will always help you tie your wedding venue into your wedding theme, even in just small but intricate ways to bring the whole day together.
We feel that this winter wedding inspired shoot shows couples that love will always win. Even in the midst of the coldest season of the year, your guests will be filled with the warmth of your love and love for you and your partner. A winter wedding can be the most stunning of weddings, when you work with the rights suppliers.
We wanted to show couples that LOVE always wins and that small weddings even in the middle of our coldest season can always be stunning.
