We have been so lucky to have the opportunity to share this AMAZING christmas styled shoot at the wedding venue Little Thakeham. Thank you so much to To Have & To Hire Events for sharing this with us, and also to all the fabulous suppliers that were involved. We got a sneak peak of the images by Velvet Storm and knew we just had to feature the shoot on our blog! Enjoy…….

Why not break with tradition and have a Christmas wedding? These gorgeous images taken at Little Thakeham, the new and exclusive venue nestled in the South Downs, offer inspiration for anyone considering a winter wedding.

The stunning Grade 1 listed property, dressed in all its Christmas finery, provided the perfect cosy backdrop for the shoot. Crackling fires, twinkling Christmas lights and candles perfectly complimented the rich colours of the table décor and storm lantern centrepieces surrounded by a richly coloured flower wreath.

The model’s stunning champagne coloured gown mixed a traditional embroidered Sweetheart bodice with a modern flowing skirt of tulle over organza. To compliment the dreamy dress she wore a delicately hand-wired headpiece and earrings featuring antique beads, crystals and freshwater pearls. Her bouquet, a bit like her gown, was a mixture of the traditional with the new as well. Traditional winter foliage of eucalyptus and spruce were mixed with subtle antique pink Memory Lane roses, anemones and white hypericum berries to create an alpine winter romance look. Simple hair and delicate but rich make up complemented the classical look of the shoot.

No wedding would be complete without a cake and the opulent three tier buttercream cake featured silver, gold and red embellishments that perfectly complimented the rest of the shoot.
