I was recently invited along by the Sunday Sun to act as stylist on a winter bridal fashion shoot at Rockliffe Hall in Darlington.  The edit, plus some advice on winter bridal style courtesy of this was published in the paper yesterday – did you pick up a copy?

.

The team, consisting of Stan and Jane from Stan Seaton PhotographyHooker and Young Darlington, The Rockliffe Hall Spa, Hart Company, Poppy Bridal, Leigh Hetherington and myself worked all day to produce some stunning images.  I share my personal favourites here.  Be inspired!.

The nights may be longer and the wind may be sharper, but tying the knot during the winter is a great fashion choice. The fabrics can be richer and more sumptuous; the colour palette more flattering; there can never be too much sparkle and you can go overboard on fabulous accessories.

For a true snow princess look, think layers of crisp white tulle, big skirts and lace detailing. The gorgeous gowns by Leigh Hetherington are straight out of a fairy tale. You won’t need a lot of colour, but to keep it pretty, add colour contrasts of pale blue and green. This look is all about the drama, so add a full length veil and touches of diamante sparkle to a pale hydrangea bouquet.

If you prefer a sleeker silhouette, chose fluid fabrics like silk and chiffon and go to town on the accessories and detailing. Feathers, pearls and crystals all work well to create a stylish look with a nod to the season. When it comes to winter bridal accessories, more is more. Jenny Packham has created a complimentary line of feathered shrugs , bejewelled hair vines and crystal cuffs that set off her dresses gorgeously (Jenny Packham is available at Poppy Bridal, Darlington).
