Purple Winter Wedding Steph Kiely Photography

It’s almost midsummer, but I just know so many of you will be busily planning your winter weddings. This is why I always try to feature an array of wonderful wedding inspiration no matter the season and today I am super happy to be sharing these purple winter wedding ideas.

What I love about this shoot is that’s it’s really soft and pretty, a contrast to more traditional winter wedding ideas. The pastel purples and pinks work in harmony with the delicate styling, whimsical attire and divine details. Light, airy and so very romantic! You are going to love this shoot brought to us by Steph Kiely Photography alongside a very talented team today 😍

Purple Winter Wedding Inspiration

As the leaves at our host venue were turning a warm, rich red Steph Kiely’s ‘dream team’ started to plan a stunning collaboration shoot at Cornwell Manor.

Steph got everyone on board and inspired us with a simple but inspired mood board entitled Winter Purple and Pinks.  And were we inspired – oh yes!! Initially, Emma and Joely pulled together floral suggestions with prop and styling ideas and fairly quickly this interpretation of the mood board was shared with the wider team so as everyone could start to have an input.

Cornwell Manor is a stunning privately-owned home in the most incredible setting within the Cotswolds.  Book it for the day or a long weekend and you and your guests can enjoy all the home and gardens has to offer, from lazy days around the pool to food cooked by the in house team the venue can accommodate up to 300 guests – with the addition of a marquee set in the gardens.  Surrounded by lakes and incredible views this really is a perfect setting for your special day.

We decided to set a long table that could definitely be used for a more intimate wedding, something the team think will be popular over the coming months.  With the table set for guests we began to work together on the styling. Joely from Ambience Buckinghamshire had sourced the most incredible wooden candle holders topped with a soft, nude pink candle which she used alongside a soft grey taper candle.  Emma from Signature Flowers then added the flowers, a gorgeous mix of textures and colours using skimmia, dahlia, roses, hydrangea and lunar to create something a little ethereal. Although made up of many separate components the finished look was a full central line of gorgeous details.

The table from Chipping Norton Event Hire was finished perfectly with stationery from Anna-Jayne Designs, having received a floral proposal sheet from the florist Anna knew exactly the colours and flowers to include in her beautiful table stationery. She created gorgeous floral menu cards which were topped with an agate stone name place. These sat alongside the grey linens on the table and everything worked beautifully together.

Whilst the team were setting up the table our model couple, the amazing Marilyn and Roly were getting shoot ready with Jodie Elleanor. Jodie has worked with Marilyn before and had such great ideas of how she wanted to style the bridal look. She wanted to create something to fit the mood of the whole shoot! For makeup, she created a flawless base with matte smokey eyes with a tiny pop of glitter. The eyeshadow colours perfectly complementing the gorgeous colours throughout the shoot!

For hair she wanted to create something big and romantic, this definitely had to be an updo! Really soft and effortless looking finished off perfectly with fresh flowers from signature flowers.

This perfectly complemented the gown provided by Anna McDonald Bridal. The gown ‘Luxembourg’ was from their French Collection by Wendy Makin, a sleeved gown with a low back and the most intricate floral embroidery.

Marilyn’s look was finished off with a floral hairpiece and gorgeous jewellery from Biagio’s the Jewellers.

Marilyn and Roly are getting a lot of practice being in front of the camera ahead of their own wedding in Europe in 2021 – we hope this gorgeous, super loved up pair get to tie the knot soon. Roly wore a suit from The Cotswold Tailor and had a hellebore buttonhole on his lapel.

As well as the table setting we also created a styled area under the balcony which we dressed around a chair so as to create a stunning setting for portrait shoots. This is a lovely idea and perhaps with a couple of chairs a great alternative to a photo booth.

Cornwell Manor has the most beautiful grounds so after the inside shoots we headed outside to the orchard and the front of the house where Steph captured beautiful reflections, amazing emotion and the most beautiful light as always.

Holly from Holly Clarke Cakes crafted a gorgeous three-tier cake which she adorned with additional flowers from Signature Flowers so as the entire look across the shoot worked in harmony.
