This cold wedding shoot from Canada speaks to the hearts of winter brides. There’s a certain courage that comes with marrying in the chilliest of seasons and this inspirational shoot captures the allure and felicity of a winter wedding. As seen in the invitation suite, the color palette is comprised of dusty grays, blues, hints of gold, and surprisingly, green. The shoot incorporates the natural greenery of the open location with hearty florals and assorted greenery.
The scene is set with classic furniture. The bride’s bouquet is front and center. The simple, but impactful inclusions of black and white anemones, white roses, and generous amounts of ivy provide texture and size.
The bride’s style is simple and classic. Her hair is pulled up in a chic updo. She wears a strapless ball gown with a sweetheart neckline and her only accessory is her ring.
The groom dons a unique look for a cold weather ceremony. A gray tie and white shirt are seen underneath a thick dark gray sweater. The layers are paired with gray pants and boots. An anemone boutonniere completes his look.
The trees are barren and the grass is sparse, but this couple looks elegant seated upon a dark sofa.
Because of the gentle sunlight and clear sky, the couple is front and center roaming around the grounds. They stand out in a sweet fashion.
A celebratory table is set beneath a grand bare-branched tree that offers a unique canopy in an otherwise open space.
A floral centerpiece composed of the same flowers as the bride’s bouquet is placed on the table for a touch of grandiose flair. It’s placed atop a soft blue table linen made from flowing, billowy fabric so long that it graces the ground.
The place settings are simple and crisp. Clear plates hold parchment place cards and is accompanied by silver flatware and clear glassware. The look is beautifully illustrative of the winter season
The wedding cake is one sophisticated sweet. Set on a gray buffet table, the three-tier fondant-covered dream features ruffles, pearl details, and smooth finishes. It’s adorned with a single white rosebud for a darling finish.
On an empty path, the bride and groom make a beautiful pair. His rugged style contrasting with her graceful polish is exceptionally attractive.
Instead of becoming a deterrent in your wedding planning, let the cold weather be a source of encouragement for your big day. The many beautiful details synonymous with the season can be combined to design a charming scene attractive enough to take the chill off of winter.
