The Wonder of Winter
Wedding styling: winter vibes at a Cornish vineyard
A romantic fusion of flickering candlelight and natural elements brings cosy winter vibes to a Cornish vineyard
Cradled in a valley close to Cornwall’s south coast, Knightor is a charm-filled vineyard where a rustic barn meets four acres of orchards and wildflower meadows. While it makes a dreamy setting for a spring or summer wedding, the autumn and winter months bring a magic of their own and, in this styled shoot, the romance of a winter wedding is evoked through elegant details and nods to the idyllic natural surrounds.
Complemented by a bounty of foliage dotted with cream blooms, the colour scheme of teal, forest green and gold makes for a striking scene against the Cornish granite walls of the 18th century barn. Flora and foliage carry from the tablescape and ceremony arch to the detailing on the stationery, while bold blooms in shades of plum and dusky rose look stunning against the textured teal and gold cake. The gold accents of the cutlery, candlesticks and candleholders add elegance, elevating the tablescape, while cut log place settings and sprigs of eucalyptus enhance the nature-inspired feel.
Outside amidst the wooded grounds, the dappled light glints on the intricate beading of the bride’s gown, shimmering on her dainty jewels and hair pearls, adding magic to the captivating winter scene in this secluded corner of Cornwall.
