outdoor wedding dining tablescape in winter

Really excited to tell you that JuneBug Weddings will be featuring The Boat House Shoot next month !

Heres a little bit about this inspirational shoot which took place in East Sussex in November & YES it was very cold but you can still feel the love in these photos !

Wilderness weddings are becoming increasingly popular and we wanted to show that they are not just for summer in the UK ! Our winter wilderness shoot is intimate & shows the beauty of nature at this time of year in the Uk. An alternative style intimate setting full of cosy blankets, warming mugs of wine, spicy soup around the warm glow of a fire pit are just delightfull !

The shoot is full of textures, just look at the devine floral crown, a wonderful contrast of pure white orchids against dried hydrangeas and flower heads. Our amazing florist has used lots of natural dried ferns and flowers throughout the scheme, something we will see a lot more of in 2019. I love the delicate rose gold ferns tucked into the bouquet and suspended over the tablescape, the perfect amount of delicate shimmer.

Rachel did such an amazing job !

The colour palette is harmonious to the surroundings and the styling is organic and simple, creating a relaxed and carefree setting. This is OUR signature style, simple and organic. Our tablescape is full of bold stoneware and is framed with hanging bulbs and delicate ferns. Its just bursting with contrasting textures that worked so well on the day. 

The overall story is relaxed & carefree with plenty of winter warmth. Really looking forward to sharing more next month form this inspiring setting.

Thanks to all the team but especially our photographer Elena for restoring my faith !
