A Thoroughly Modern Christmas


We wish you a wonderful Christmas with this thoroughly modern Christmas wedding inspiration by planner and Stylist The Wedding Avenue with Olegs Samsonovs Photography.  Set at the beautiful new Oragangery at Hayne House in Kent. Choosing something more minimal and contemporary that the traditional festive style, they used an understated colour palette of white with black, grey, hints of gold and lovely greenery. It’s perfect for the party season and beyond and we love the little bohemian luxe details throughout too!

To create an essence of Winter they used lots of candlelight in different ways too – from industrial luxe styled lanterns to glass pillars with floating candles, and fab chunky pillar candles of different hieghts along the aisle. In the Winter it goes darker so much sooner so using candlelight creates a romantic atmosphere and looks super pretty! Other winter touches include the beautiful faux fur throws and faux leather rug and even a touch of leather detailing in the invitations. Dark black industrial styled chairs give that deeper colour palette with a really cool edge!

We love the layered two piece bridal looks by London designer Poppy Dover. It adds to the simplicity and versatility of this overall scheme. Don’t be afriad to add touches of black to your wedding look too – here they’ve used a chic blazer and amazing fedora hat. Are you loving the bridal hat trend as much as I am? Obsessed!!!



After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
