Winter Woodland Spirit Wedding Inspiration
We're delighted to have this Woodland Spirit styled shoot on the blog today from Thomasina Brides! The vibe is Nature Goddess with just the right sprinkling of Yuletide festivity, for a bride who's a free spirit and a wild soul, and it's aaaaabsolutely stunning!
The atmospheric grounds of Breadsall Priory, Derbyshire provided the ideal backdrop, with beautiful rolling lawns as well as gorgeously dark and ornate function rooms inside. Outside, the trees were adorned with pearlescent baubles (watch out for a DIY article on those hitting the blog soon!). The decor wasn't fussy - simple pillar candles, beautiful boughs of foliage and ribbon, pinecones, and gold tea light holders were placed atop the table - but it was effective, giving the venue a stunning and stylish Christmassy vibe. Stationery by Bride and Bows set the scene perfectly, with a tongue-in-cheek message set against a beautiful design.
The cake, by the super talented The Sugared Rose, featured a handpainted design and handplaced gold leaf with a gorgeous winter crown, bringing luxury and whimsical romance to the shoot. We've also had confirmation from Mary-Ann at Thomasina Brides that it tasted as good as it looked, which is very important!
Inside, the beautifully styled table by Redamancy Wedding Planning prepared guests for a lush and extravagant feast, featuring a table piled high with glassware and foliage, and beautifully wrapped cutlery.
The colourful dress with an elegant deep V and ethereal two-piece bridal outfit by Jessica Jane Bespoke Bridal Wear added to the super stylish vibes, as the perfect look for a bolder bride who oozes personality. With flowers by Polka-Dot Florist in deep jewel hues, featuring a floral heart and a boho bridal flower crown, and gorgeous pared-back make up that packed a punch, they looked moody and magnificent.
