Winter Woodland Wedding Inspiration with Burgundy and Gold Touches

“Initially myself and Lou at the Old Milking Parlour had the vision of an Autumnal shoot after
meeting our model Gemma who was the hairstylist at another shoot. We started to build a
team of suppliers but we needed a talented stylist to bring our vision to life. We arranged a
meeting with Lynne from Rustic Rentals whose work we had admired on social media.
During that meeting we discussed how the shoot could start with an Autumn theme and
evolve to incorporate a more Wintery Christmas feel. We were able to hand the reigns over
to Lynne who has such an amazing eye and imagination for styling to co-ordinate the shoot”

Winter Woodland Wedding – Stylist & Décor & Props – Rustic Rentals

“As both the stylist and décor hire company I set out to create a shoot with a talented group
of suppliers which would be both inspirational and aspirational. We wanted the designs
used to be achievable for real weddings. We also wanted to encourage couples to consider
reducing their impact on the environment by showcasing designs that incorporated re-used
items. Highlighting options such as hiring the décor and props, beeswax candles, British
grown flowers, recycled paper within the stationary and the re-use of jewels and copper
wire within the tiara design. The Venue The Old Milking Parlour at Cavokay House was
chosen as it is a converted dairy farm incorporating large woodland areas so perfect for our
theme.”

“I elected to keep the props and styling very minimal with the focus on the re-use of vintage
and modern décor items to highlight how both vintage and modern hire items can be
incorporated and upcycled. My style tends to be minimal, rustic chic where I love to
combine different textures such as velvets, chiffons and metallics paired with vintage
pressed glass, vintage brass and gold modern accessories alongside candles in different sizes and tonal colours.”

“I also like to use items not always used at weddings such as the Vintage Indian cart made from a Vintage Indian door, a vintage door from The Old Milking Parlour used as a table on vintage builders trestles and a beautiful vintage peacock chair. The natural beauty of the woodland created the mood and tone for our outdoor shots whilst the Milking Parlour creating an interesting indoor setting.”

created by the wonderful team of suppliers. It was a pleasure to photograph our model

Winter Woodland Wedding Flowers – Caroline Clements Flowers

“The florals for this shoot reflected the wintery theme, using jewel like colours, deep pinks
were toned with reds and softened with muted tones. The arrangements were natural with
a slightly wild look, hinting at the ethereal. For the woodland area an oversized wreath was created using foraged local greenery and eucalyptus to give a luxurious dramatic effect.
Similar tones were incorporated in the garland with details to draw the eye to the detail of
berries and textures.”

The dress features an A-line skirt made up of several layers of tulle to create an ethereal
look.”

Winter Woodland Wedding Stationery – Pastel’s Designs

“When I was asked to do the Winter Christmas shoot I had so many different ideas but
working with the other suppliers we decided to create a deer monogram in rich winter
warm colours which flowed through the design. The stationery was printed on high quality
uncoated paper which added to the rustic feel. Typography was subtle to make the
monogram stand out.”

with handmade sugar flowers as well as a wood bark effect on the bottom tier. A single
buttercream mini cake and cupcakes accompanied this decorated to match. The gold leaf
cake popsicles created a beautiful addition.”

Winter Woodland Wedding Hair – Hepcats Barber Shop and Beauty Parlour

“Our model, Gemma, had gorgeous copper red hair which was really suited to a soft,
romantic style. I felt her natural beauty ought to do the talking, rather than anything overly
elaborate. I created soft gentle waves which I swept up into an updo with some volume
around the crown, allowing the tiara to sit perfectly.”

“As the updo was soft and natural, it was easily taken down later in the shoot, with gentle
curls framing Gemma’s face and giving a different look. I used products with texture such as
dry shampoo to create the initial style, and then finished with a shine spray to really show
off her gorgeous hair colour.”

Winter Woodland Wedding Reindeer- Somerset Reindeer Ranch

“Somerset Reindeer Ranch is a small, professional, family run business nestled in the heart of Somerset in the sleepy village of Chilthorne Domer near Yeovil. Winter is our most special boy, with a very rare coat cover, white as the driven snow. Only one in ten thousand Reindeer are born white so we consider ourselves very lucky to have  him living with us. He is one of our sleigh pullers, and what a wonderful sight he makes!

“White Reindeer are considered to be lucky charms in Scandinavia. Comet joined the herd in the summer 2014 and is our second sleigh pulling Reindeer, and is mostly paired up with his buddy Winter. His is silver, super fluffy and our strongest Reindeer, often trying get up some speed with the sleighs, he thinks he is a racehorse and enjoys thrilling Santa!”
