Wedding styling: enchanting natural winter wedding

The wild romance of a winter wedding where natural treasures meet bold bridalwear at Brickhouse Vineyard

There’s something about a winter wedding: the steely skies, the snug, twinkling touches, the sheer magic of making merry together while the blanket of darkness falls. This styled shoot captures the enchantment of the season against the stirring backdrop of Brickhouse Vineyard, an idyllic venue set amidst rolling meadows, vines and woodland in the hills of south Devon.

“Foraged greenery, with feathers and twigs, contrasted with natural stone colours and textures, singing a winter hymn together and celebrating the wild countryside,” explains Phoebe Stanaway of Elisabeth Shell Events, who coordinated and styled the shoot. The moon shaped arch is a vivid expression of this wildly beautiful styling: the blend of lichen, moss and foraged greenery, dotted with homegrown flowers and pheasant feathers, makes an ethereal backdrop for a ceremony in the 18th century thatched Round House. The golden glow from the handcrafted rope chandeliers, together with the warm tones of the red bricks and oak beams, enhance the cosy ambience.

Set against the blank canvas backdrop of the renovated Barn, the tablescape is nothing short of dreamy. Echoing the moon arch, an array of foraged greenery, lichen and moss nestle black candelabras and egg-textured vases springing with delicate stems and pheasant feathers. Delicate beeswax flower favours sit alongside dainty blooms and vellum stationery on the metallic charger plates, enhancing the wild, fragile beauty of the scene. And, resting on a bed of lichen, moss and white flowers, the stone textured cake, adorned with barely-there accents of gold, ties in perfectly with the aesthetic.

With nature at the heart of the concept, careful sourcing was key for Phoebe. “I try to make sure that all the hire items I use are sustainably sourced and artisan-made and so Glas Events’ hire range was a perfect choice for the elegant black candelabras and unique charger plates,” she explains.

Nature shares the spotlight with a strong bridal look. “Drawing on icy winters, the shoot showcases a fiercely feminine aesthetic with our stunning bride galloping through the vineyard on her beautiful grey horse, her caramel vizsla with her throughout the day,” says Phoebe.

Teamed with a striking braid and smoky eye, the bridal separates bring bold and beautiful drama, from a black lace crop top paired with a hand-painted dip-dye chiffon skirt to a dreamy dove grey printed top and hand-painted skirt in silk organza. Complete with her groom in a sharp, all-black tuxedo, the couple embody the wild romance of a wedding in the darkest months of the year.
