We may be desperately trying to shake off the current cold season and focus on the brighter months ahead, but we’re finishing the week with a truly delectable dose of winter wedding inspiration.

Those of you planning your wedding for such time of year are certainly going to want to have your Pinning-fingers at the ready, as this shoot epitomises an opulent winter wedding at its finest, complete with a warming palette of golds and berry reds, plus plenty of crystal and jewel detailing.

Engineered by a talented group of Yorkshire suppliers, the shoot, captured late last year, took some of its inspiration from festive season and shows how utterly gorgeous an alternative Christmas wedding can be – thankfully there’s not a single candy cane in sight!

Here to tell us more is the award-winning Betty Timbo of Bespoke Vintage Castle, who made the beautiful accessories featured in the shoot – including a rather gorgeous clutch bag that us magpies at Brides Up North just love!

betty says: The shoot was inspired by all things seasonal and wonderful, full of rich vibrancy, opulent flowers and exciting glittery elements. A jubilant collection of colours, moods and textures were evoked by the Christmas spirit with the shoot taking place late last year. We were also keen to showcase the very best Yorkshire talent and what a wedding could be like when this theme comes together.

The location – The Orangery at Settrington – was perfectly chosen by photographer Jane Beadnell, who wanted to capture a place with bold structure, clean colours and a decadent finish. We loved the venue’s large windows that drew in the cooling winter sun, stunning pillars that shaped the room and the warming glow of the muted colour palette. We were free to roam the grounds and were met with beautiful leafy arches, artistic sculptures and marble structures. The Orangery at Settrington is a beautiful location in all seasons and we really wanted to showcase all its art, beauty and refinement in our finished images.

The decoration was beautifully designed and put together by Laura from Ambience Venue Styling in York. The team worked with a rich, opulent burgundy, gold and red tonal colour palette and there were tables laden with scented candles, extravagant golden cutlery and sequined tablecloths.

The stunning cakes by Zoe’s Fancy Cakes echoed the colour theme and were each hand-adorned with colours and breath-taking artwork.
