Today I am excited to share this beautiful Winter Wedding styled shoot with a palette of icy blue.
The images were captured by TCM Photography in collaboration with some amazing Cornwall suppliers.
Two incredible locations in Falmouth acted as backdrop and each give wonderful seasonal inspiration for a Winter Big Day.
I hand over to the fabulous Hazel Parsons to tell us about the shoot…
“What could be more romantic than saying your vows in the magnificent historic fort which is Pendennis Castle, with it’s grand entrance, sweeping drive, dominant stone features and large open fires, the perfect setting for a dramatic winter wedding ceremony.”
“Or imagine bringing your family & friends after to the ever-so sophisticated St.Michaels Hotel and Spa, 4 star hotel set in it’s own private gardens just a stones throw away from Falmouth’s Gyllyngvase beach.”
“This seemed the perfect location for a winter wedding reception, totally different to the ceremony venue with a very high end maritime feel to it.”
“It made a fantastic canvas for the wedding suppliers to create something really very magical.
“Every aspect of the shoot had been styled from start to finish, co-ordinated by Jenny Phipps from Jenny Wrens Wedding Planning and Events and styled by styling guru Elle from Inspire Hire, the theme and styling were sure not to disappoint.”
“Jenny hand picked suppliers she thought could create the winter wedding wonderland perfectly, each offering something different, with their own unique style.”
“Elle really captured the brief within her styling creating an overall look that was elegant, sophisticated, romantic and totally different to the traditional winter wedding style.”
“Elle used faux snow around the bases of the table decorations light with a soft blue led light.”
“She chose beautiful Elizabeth Ghost Perspex candelabras for half of the tables, as they look like they could be made of ice, so really suit the winter wonderland theme!”
“For the other tables Elle created tall twiggy tree like arrangements to recreate a winter woodlands atmosphere.”
“She hung beautiful glass icicles from winters bows, as well as clear glass tea light holders which twinkled magically above the guests heads!”
“When it came to wedding flowers Jules from the Art of Flowers created some really beautiful arrangements that took into consideration every aspect of the shoot, just as you would if you were planning your wedding!”
“The 2 venues used on the day were very different in style, so my choice of flowers needed to complement each other in order to provide images that connected them both in a subtle way.”
“When it came to decorating the castle keep, I tried to keep the displays simple and being transported back in time, used plenty of cascading eucalyptus foliage and once again used Aisha roses along with white lisianthus and included silver waxed apples and miniature deer antlers.”
“Filled jam jars lined the aisle and kept the whole area feeling natural and unstructured.”
“The dining room at St Michael’s was inspired by Elle’s vision of a winter wonderland.”
“The floral displays on the candelabra were packed tightly with a grouping of flowers and foliage which included Limonium and Brunia giving a more modern effect.”
“The silver mercury glass containers around the bases were filled with more greenery and flowers which echoed the more rustic jam jars at the castle thus linking the two.”
“For wedding stationery Jenny was looking for something both pretty and a little fun, whilst still tying in the winter wedding theme. Kirsty from The Paper Princess created some truly magical pieces.”
“Emily Hankins designed the cookies for guests favours to look like vintage baubles, to echo the winter theme but not be too obviously ‘Christmas’.”
“She chose pale blues to fit with the white frosty theme and also to pick out the colour of the room and add a little colour to the tables which worked really well.”
“No wedding set-up would be complete without a cake, Faye from the Natural Cake Company created a stunning winter wedding cake.”
“Faye wanted to create a natural, ethereal and elegant look, she chose organic milk chocolate couverture cake wrapped in delicate sheets of chocolate.”
“The wedding car was is a gorgeous classic car, a 1959 Armstrong Siddeley Star Sapphire called Sophie.”
“She seemed like the perfect car to make a grand entrance in for a winter wedding celebration and tied in perfectly with the look and feel of the bride and grooms attire.”
“The winter wedding shoot was captured in camera by the talented Tyron from TCM Photography.”
Thank you so much to the team for sharing this fantastic Winter Wedding styled shoot.
Icy blue is the perfect palette for a winter celebration as the tones of winter are so magical with sparkle and wonder, and the styling just compliments that.
