Real weddings Seasonal

If you are the early stages of planning your wedding, you have probably not set a date yet. Sometimes your wedding date is dependent on the venue having availability, which means you might not be getting married during your favoured time of year. Whether you are getting married in the spring, summer, autumn or wedding, this section is all about real weddings in different seasons. Years ago, the most popular time for weddings was spring and summer. Although this is still the case, weddings in the autumn and winter are gaining in popularity. Here at Style & the Bride, we have noticed a growing trend for winter weddings. Many couples like to get married around Christmas, i.e. just before and then use the Christmas period as their honeymoon. The winter weddings we feature in this seasonal weddings section don’t tend to have a Christmas theme, but instead are weddings with more of an ‘ice queen’ ‘sparkle kind of feel. The brides often tend to wear wedding dresses with longer sleeves and opt for receptions with plenty of sparkle and glitz. When we look at seasonal weddings for this section, we are often attracted to weddings where the couple have incorporated the colours from the season into their big day i.e. for autumn, they have used a lot of reds, browns, and golden colours, for winter, they have opted for a palette of silvers, whites, and greys, for spring, they have chosen pastel shades, and for summer, they have opted for blues, or brighter more citrus shades. If you have just had a seasonal wedding, we would love to hear from you. Do email marina@styleandthebride.co.uk with a synopsis of your wedding and around 15-20 low-res images.
