Winter Wedding Inspiration
To showcase that magical part of the year between winter and spring. That part of the year when you spot the first snowdrops growing through the thicket, or the first blossom on winters sleepy branches. An awakening, the sparkle of new life, of new beginnings. Could there genuinely be a more meaningful time to get married?
Taking inspiration from the season, fallen branches, foraged twigs and spring blossom are paired with luxe roses, orchids and spring flowers. Featuring rambling staircase florals, architectural floral ceremony columns, and earthy mantel arrangements complement the rich natural wood panelling within the venue.
Decadent layers of soft white linens, ethereal cut glassware, textured papier and warm white florals, amidst earthy tones of foraged branches and soft candlelight create a refined romantic tablescape. Scented by Jo Malone London to create a multisensory wedding experience that further brings the outside in.
Fashion & Beauty
Three gowns each offer bold modern elegance and an effortlessly timeless look from Ghost Orchid Bride. Details including billowing silk sleeves, exaggerated necklines and open back by @andforlove, playful ruffled tulle shoulders and textured skirts by @halfpennylondon and luxurious fabrics and romantic cowl necklines by @alexandragrecco.
Natural, ethereal beauty: A glow from within look, with fresh and flawless skin and pink rosy undertones set across both eyes, lips and cheeks. A delicate interception of colour to complement the calm and decadent styling, dress and venue. Each hair style elegantly yet naturally complements each dress. I felt that each style needed to blend in, instead of being the main focus.
Thicket Priory is covered in snowdrops at this time of year, creating a jewelled backdrop for winter and spring weddings. An exclusive-use wedding venue open all year round, Thicket Priory is set in 18 acres of tranquil countryside and has something unique to offer across the seasons. Just 20 minutes from historic York, the venue includes 35 luxury ensuite bedrooms, guest pantries, dining kitchens and secret staircases, creating a magical home-from-home for your wedding party.
