How to create a winter wonderland-themed wedding
Q – Do you have any ideas of how we can create a winter wonderland-themed wedding?
"Imagine walking through a wooded glade with a sea of twinkling fairylights and lanterns whilst your guests snuggle under cosy throws and blankets. Creating a winter woodland wedding is all about mixing the beauty of the great outdoors with cosy touches to create an enchanting space for your loved ones. Choosing a venue with a magical outdoor area will give you the blank canvas you need, whilst the trees create a wonderful backdrop for your photographs with lots of soft colours and textures.
"Make the most of the space and trees. Use the branches to hang lanterns and small bottles or vases filled with delicate stems in rich burgundies, soft whites and crisp greens. You want the colours to reflect the outdoor space and the natural environment. You can even hang delicate glass or mirrored baubles to catch the light and create magical patterns around you.
"Using natural materials throughout your décor, such as a log slice cake stand and hand-painted wooden signage, will help tie the theme together. Name your tables after woodland flora and fauna and create a dressing up area for guests to take fun photos!
"Bring out trays of steaming winter Pimms and warm cider with slices of apple, or set up a hot chocolate bar with a myriad of syrups and toppings for your friends and family to choose from.
"As the evening ends, gather your nearest and dearest around a roaring campfire for toasted marshmallows under the twinkling stars."
