Winter Wedding Inspiration

Swooning over gorgeous winter wedding inspiration is my idea of a perfect Wednesday, especially when that inspiration comes in the form of a seriously stunning shoot from the genius team of CreARTiviaHochzeitswahn and Jardine Botanics (just to name a few).  And when that shoot is sprinkled with glittery gold accents and romance at every turn, well… awesome.  Click here for more

We dreamed about a winter wedding inspiration on a place where the temperature never goes below null. A vineyard estate was just perfect for this inspiration as due to the rustic style we could blend in some really nice features, with very different tableware and lots of candles. The seating plan was made out of leaves hanging from a modern Christmas tree. The leaves were golden to match the tableware and each one had a table plan attached to it. Because everything was quite golden and rustic we liked to have the flowers really stand out with their blush colors. The prune was added to be consistent with the winter concept. We like to showcase a wedding inspiration for a rustic and very romantic winter wedding in warmer places.

Hunter Valley Wedding from Kellee Walsh

With a romance that started at sixteen and eventually led them to a walk down the aisle, this new hubby & wife team couldn’t be more adorable if they tried. And their Hunter Valley wedding captured by Kellee Walsh is a lovely look into their personalities. It all took place in the  most stunning of settings, and every moment of their gorgeous day is sitting pretty right here.

From the Bride… Matt and I met when we were sixteen years old, and were pretty much inseparable from then onwards. From the beginning we knew we were made for each other and would one day commit our lives to one another, the only question being timing. Six years later we tied the knot in the beautiful gardens of Roberts Restaurant. Our faith is of great importance to us, so it meant a lot that we were able to sing hymns, which was definitely a memorable part of the day, listening to the voices of 100 of our dearest family and friends echo through the valley.

One of our guests kindly shared afterwards that at one point during the vows, the leaves shone the brightest green and the birds sung softly, emulating a Disney movie. This was the biggest compliment for me, as it truly felt like a dream.

We both thought that the hidden field lined with trees would be the ideal location for our garden ceremony. Another reason why we chose Roberts was because it is in the stunning Hunter Valley, which has an abundance of suitable locations for photography. Our amazing photographer Kellee Walsh sourced and shot the bridal party in an incredibly scenic long grassed meadow with mountains in the background.

The reception was held in Roberts Restaurant dining hall, which provides rustic aesthetics with fantastic food and wine. The dining hall was decorated with candles, vintage books and flowers to compliment the natural beauty and character of the room. We used vintage suitcases as the honeymoon wishing well. We also had little jars of lollies presented on a candy buffet with a thank you bunting. Our photographer Kellee Walsh also provided us with a photo booth for our guest’s entertainment.

Overall we wanted the wedding to be both entertaining and fun, but more importantly reflect the seriousness of our commitment and our genuinely deep love for one another.

Hunter Valley, New South Wales Wedding from The Robertsons

I have to say, I am a bit at a loss for words. Which, as you can imagine, doesn’t happen often. Because this wedding is basically a dream come true, and it comes to life in a beautiful fashion via the talented lens of The Robertsons. It’s so pretty, it almost doesn’t seem real, until you see the way the Bride and Groom look at each other, and then you know. This is one amazing love story. Be sure to see it all right here.

From the Bride… We met five years ago through mutual friends, and if the first date was anything to go by, then the relationship should have been a disaster. I was so nervous that I spilt our drinks over the both of us, and we spent the evening saturated. Luckily, Brad likes to see the humour in everything, so he asked me out on a second date and the rest was history.

We got engaged four years later, and knew from the beginning that we wanted a wedding day that celebrated not only our love for each other, but the love we have for our friends and family that have contributed to our life together. We opted for a less traditional day to showcase the simple things in life that we enjoy, like afternoon picnics in the sun, homemade goodies, country getaways, wildflowers and vintage treasures.

We held the ceremony and reception in a rustic location just out of Wollombi, a little country town on the edge of the Yengo State Forest. Both the ceremony & reception were held outside in a field decorated with an eclectic array of jars of wildflowers, crocheted picnic rugs, hay bales, hessian and lace bunting and other vintage finds that tied in our rustic theme. We are so blessed to have such generous families and friends, who all wanted to lend their talents and be a part of our special day. The Pastor from our church married us, friends of ours provided the music for the ceremony, my mum and sister did our hair and make-up, and each of our guests brought a plate of food to share for our afternoon tea picnic style reception. As a thank you to our guests, each received a vintage crystal wine glass as their wedding favour, which was both special and practical.

The effort our friends and family put in to make our day so incredible is by far, our most cherished memory of the day. A DIY wedding comes with its fair share of stress, but our family made it a much easier and enjoyable process. We are also indebted to our amazing photographers and videographer, who captured our day so perfectly, for us to always be reminded of the cute little memories we created with the people that we love, on our special day.
