A snowy bleak mid winter wedding inspired shoot
A few years ago on an incredible snowing January day, a little group of us braved the icy roads in Dorset to put together this beautiful wintry shoot. The shoot was featured on Love My Dress and as such for one reason or another I never got round to featuring it here, on my own blog. So here it is!
Exquisitely captured by Jennie Hill Photography, seasonal winter wedding flowers by The Flower Field, wedding pies by Tricky Treats, a Sabina Motasem wedding dress (plus a vintage one), and shot at Portesham Vineyard. All the extra bits were brought together by myself and Jennie Hill, and our bride and groom were a real couple, Jennie”s brother Nick and girlfriend Kerry.
The photoshoot team
Jennie Hill and I first met at the Eco Wedding Fair in Bristol, got chatting and soon realised we had shared ideas about creating a beautiful, natural and seasonal wedding shoot. We wanted to celebrate the bleak mid-winter English countryside in all its seasonal glory, whilst bringing together and showcasing the talents of a small team of British businesses.
This wedding is beautiful and the photos stunning, the idea of getting married in a winter wonderland as delicate snowflakes fall around you is idyllic. But also mad! How cold must this couple and their bridesmaids have been – they are very brave and their friends very loving, I’m not sure I’d have got my granny’s sitting outside in the snow.
Do have a look at all the photos from this beautiful Snowy Winter Wedding – there are some iconic photos of them getting married in the snow and pretty details, but also spot how everyone else is snuggled and hidden beneath coats and hoods from the snow. Still can’t believe they managed to get through their “I do’s” in such bitter weather – an incredible hardy couple.
I kind of wish it looked like this outside. I do envy places that get snow like this ever Christmas – I love the idea of being stuck inside with a roaring log fire and a blizzard blowing outside. Enough of my romanticising, I just really wanted to share these beautiful snowy wedding photos with you all. They show that extreme weather on your wedding day can be fun.
It seemed only fitting that since this time tomorrow I will be in Paris with my sister that I share a wintery Paris wedding. This one with snow and a cosy reception was just how I’d imagine a Paris wedding at this chilly but magical time of year.
I love that the couple got married on a grand staircase with their family and friends all around them – what a lovely idea – and what a stunning backdrop with that huge window looking out onto a snowy landscape.
The tables were decorated minimally (if you take a look at the reception room you’ll see it didn’t need much decorating!) but they used moss and fir cones to bring in a touch of the outside.
