Elopement wedding ideas

Part 3; walking in a winter wonderland

 

I don’t know what it is, but there is something particularly romantic about a winter wedding, wouldn’t you agree? Add that to the already existing romance of our elopement weddings and, voila, you’ve got yourself a wedding more (can you guess?) yep, romantic than when Harry met Sally…

Plus, what a great theme! As we are all about the elopement weddings ideas, I just couldn’t resist showcasing this fab winter wedding!

And before you say ‘but it’s summer’, I know, and it seems a tad strange writing about frosty mornings when the sun is blazing outside (okay, not blazing, but let’s at least pretend Britain knows how to summer…) but, there is still time to book a winter wedding for the end of 2017, so get your creative juices flowing and be inspired by Kay and Andrew’s wintery style.

Kay wore this fabulous tea-length dress with frosted lace, adding to their December style…

What a fab bouquet! Christmas reds with evergreen foliage and thistles… how very ‘winter’!bride sitting on bed in honeymoon cottage with bouquet of red, purple, and navy flowers with lots of greeneryclose up of bride's winter theme bouquet made up of red, purple, and navy flowers plus thistles and lots of greenery bride in honeymoon cottage holding her red purple navy and greenery bouquet

And delicate shoes to match the flowers… scrumptious, don’t you think?

Now onto the decor… candles, pine cones and baubles? Splendid! How would you decorate your winter elopement wedding?

It wouldn’t be a winter wedding without a Christmas tree now would it?

How great does Kay’s bouquet look on their wedding breakfast table? I love their use of the silver-grey table cloths; they contrast wonderfully with the red flowers, and emphasise that ‘frosted’ effect running through their wedding day style.

Did you notice the log fire? Imperative for any December wedding!

And no Elopement Wedding is quite complete without a miniature wedding cake…

Don’t you just love the frosty look with the silver and white? Not forgetting the all-important Christmas-red flowers; magnificent all round.

If that wasn’t quite enough to get your juices flowing, check out their choice of refreshments. I don’t know about you but I am sold!
