#176: FADE TO GREY
Although I’m rather sad to see Autumn fade away, I rather love a good winter wedding. The thought of holing up in a cosy cabin for a few days with your nearest and dearest, logs on the fire as the mist rolls over the hills and nature strips itself bare in preperation for the season ahead, is a rather cosy and romantic notion. Nature offers so many gorgeous textures at this time of year, with firs, foliage and berries contrasting against the crisp white flowers available at this time of year. Mix with natural tweedy fabrics, rough linens and velvet, in shades of warm grey – fog, pewter & mink . For warmth, add a hint of richness with plum or pehaps a festive red. Don’t forget to wrap up with cosy fur stoles for a touch of winter luxe!
SHOP THE LOOK
You can’t plan a winter wedding without considering a warm and cosy stole. This one from Hope & Grace has long been a favourite of mine, it’s length makes it perfectly versatile for any bride and adds a touch of romantic glamour.
I love the woodland influences in this letterpress design from Artcadia. It’s sweet without being cutesy, and the soft taupe shade and butter-soft paperstock gives it a warm, luxurious edge.
There’s something about a groom in tweed, pair this slate bow tie from Mrs Bow Tie with a waistcoat and fir buttonhole for a warm but wintery look.
