Dazzling Gowns and Exquisite Details Give Inspiration for a Christmas Wedding

From the stylist, Willow and Oak Events:

“A festive mix of pine sprigs, embellishments and burgundy blooms, this authentic holiday wedding inspiration sought to bring life to the refined, yet tender nature of a Joyeux Noël mood.

From the miniature ornaments reminiscent of holiday seasons bygone to the dazzling gowns worn by our bride, there’s something about this gallery that has us feeling jubilant. The bespoke paper goods evoke a sense of Old World romance as calligraphed letters dipped in gold ink decorate hand-torn scrolls of emerald + onyx, slowly + poetically.

Twinkling alongside these petite paperies is a delicate bundle of Edwardian and Art Deco engagement ring. We couldn’t possible choose a favorite between the Old European cut three stone engagement ring, the bezel-set rectangular cut Alexandrite cocktail ring or the chandelier-inspired vintage pear engagement ring from 1905… to name a few!

Shades of ruby, garnet, mulberry and a touch of periwinkle are married in the artful tangle of blooms carried by the bride. As soft silk ribbons trail gracefully from the stems, evanescent romance is undeniably present. The bride moves gracefully through these scenes in both an intricate long-sleeve gown by couture designer Lee Petra Grebenau and a flirty dress by Inbal Dror with crystal-dusted straps tied together with a femme tulle bow to imitate the illuminating shine of tinsel. Adding to her looks are a loose coiffured updo and wavy bridal ponytail, with a luminous glow to her cheeks.

Alongside the show-stopping bridal looks is a dapper red velvet suit from that totally warms our hearts. The backdrop of Hedsor House, with its boxwood labyrinth gardens and ivy-climbing exterior, provided the perfect elevated ambiance to this fine art holiday inspiration. We cannot thank the supplier team enough for their talents and creativity that made this editorial possible.”
