Planning a Christmas themed wedding? Love the colour schemes that winter provides? Then here is the blog article for you! Back in December 2019, Micklefield Hall was proud to host the stunning wedding of Robin and Catherine. Everything about the styling of this gorgeous day shouted winter wonderland wedding! Here we show you the highlights of the day, through the lens of the supremely talented Anneli Marinovich, photographer extraordinaire!
Wedding colour scheme
The attention to detail at this winter wedding was beautiful. The colours that ran throughout the day were a dark, Christmas green, gold and white. These colours complimented the warm, rustic wood of the Micklefield 16th century barn and the twinkling fairy lights that adorned walls and dangled from the huge beams above. The bridesmaids long dresses were the same dark green and this rich colour was reflected in the gorgeous wedding stationary created by Lou Paper.
Lou’s most talked about seating plan and welcome sign, were the ones she created for Robin & Catherine. Using a large acetate sheet, green paint and gold calligraphy pen, these signs stood out from the crowd. These, coupled with the invitations, menus, and super cute place cards cradled by glittering gold baubles, gave the whole event a very classy and Christmas-y feel.
Wedding breakfast place settings
Again, using the colour scheme, the caterers (Kalm Kitchen) and Lou Paper adorned the tables with style, elegance and grace. Crisp white linen, crackle gold tea lights, cream pillar candles, snippets of Christmas tree, and flower arrangements in clear glass vases that glistened next to the wine glasses. Simple, effective and seasonal.
The wedding floristry
Andrew Fleming is a magician of a florist and he and his team never fail to create the most amazing floral arrangements. This winter wonderland wedding was no exception. From the traditional, towering Christmas tree adorned with baubles, to huge wreaths hanging from the walls, all was very festive.
Andrew’s team gave height to the tables by adding tall, sophisticated flower arrangements that again were based on the wedding’s colour scheme.
Wedding fairy lights
No Christmas is complete without fairy lights, and a winter wonderland wedding is no exception. Micklefield Hall as a wonderful wall of fairy lights behind the stage, whatever the event, but Catherine & Robin went all out by getting 3 Point Lighting to add extra fairy lights to the ceiling.
Draping from beam to beam, like twinkling curtains, the fairy lights created such a warm glow from the top to the bottom of the barn.
The wedding dress
Catherine looked absolutely stunning in her floor length, white wedding dress. The fact that she had opted for a crisp white dress, really made her stand out against the creamy, dusty whites in the colour scheme of the wedding. With lace details down her arms and across her chest, tiny buttons sweeping down the back and a huge train, this dress was elegant, classic and very sophisticated!
The wedding cake
Catherine & Robin’s cake was expertly made by Emily Jane Cakes who is a regular to Micklefield Hall. With a whopping four tiers and plain white frosting in horizontal stripes around the cake, the cake looked very impressive. Adorned with the same fresh flowers as were on the table displays and in Catherine’s bouquet, the cake looked stunning perched on top of the Micklefield wedding cake log slice.
Little wedding additions
The winter wonderland theme even extended to the very sweet little comforts for the guests. The wedding guest book was in the same Christmas green, surrounded by gorgeous little photos and placed next to a white, vintage post box.
For those guests whose shoes stopped them from partying all night long, Catherine and Robin put out baskets of flip flops for guests to take. These of course were colour coordinated!
For outdoor entertainment and making use of the gorgeous Micklefield Hall Garden Room, guests were provided with personalised sparklers and marshmallows to toast in the open fire.
One of our favourite photos is the sparklers in the courtyard from Catharine and Robin’s wedding. Anneli Marinovich is such a talented photographer but she really captured the essence of this wedding in this photo and the energy of the guests!
Truly Madly Deeply were the band at the wedding that kept the guests dancing the night away. The Micklefield Hall dancefloor was full of guests performing their best moves. Guests were also entertained by The Roving Artist who cut out the most amazing silhouettes in real time.
