Happy Christmas Eve! It’s the most magical time of the year, and today I have this magical winter wedding inspiration for you. Wren Photography has captured the ambiance of this navy, burgundy and gold winter wedding shoot so perfectly.

These romantic styling ideas feature many floral elements. From the fabulous floral stationery with burgundy roses, navy envelopes and beautiful gold calligraphy lettering, to the wonderful bridal bouquet, table centrepieces, and floral hoop wreath elegantly hung above the inviting fire. The fire, candles, blankets and rich berry tones create a cosy winter vibe which you can easily recreate for your own magical winter wedding.

Following the floral elements, the bride wears an incredible wedding dress adorned with silvery flowers which glisten in the light. To complete her look, a faux fur wrap is perfect for this snowy setting of Willowbrook Mill, Michigan.

I love a wedding where the food almost takes centre-stage, and the food here looks magnificent. Such a feast, perfect for a cold winter’s day.

So, grab a glass of mulled wine (it’s Christmas Eve after all) and enjoy these wonderful ideas for a navy, burgundy and gold winter wedding.

Cosy Fireplaces and Nostalgic Charm

“I love a good winter wedding. The cosy romance, an adventurous couple, and the pristine landscape create a completely different vibe to summer soirées. So, when Jen from Wren Photography suggested we put together a styled shoot to inspire more winter weddings in northern Michigan, I jumped at the chance.

“It turned out the fireside lounge, cable knit blankets and rich berry tone palette on our Pinterest board were just the beginning. Jen suggested we find a couple to actually get married at the styled shoot. They would invite guests and enjoy all the goodness of fireside blankets and berry-inspired dining.

“We reached out to Mimi from Willowbrook Mill, whose venue in Northport has three cosy fireplaces and nostalgic charm off the charts.

“Holly Thomas Design sent over the most stunning invitation suite in rich burgundies, navy, and gold calligraphy. I then talked to Jen at Grandview Catering about our vision of comfort food with a gourmet twist, and mentioned our berry tone palette. She sent me a mouth-watering menu that not only took comfort food to a new level, but also entrées and winter vegetable hash that became focal points in the table decor. The artistic presentation of pistachio crusted lamb chops was perfection between the taper candles, red wine, and the protea in Rory’s glorious centrepiece.

“Watercolour brie and fig macarons served as amuse-bouche place cards, detailed with guest names in gold calligraphy. We then used linens, candles, cross back chairs and lounge furniture, flowers and snowshoes to pull the whole look together.

“Our models JP and his gorgeous girlfriend Katie added the romance to every scene we assembled, and Lakeshore diamond rings and a fur stole completed the look with a touch of glam.”
