We love all the details that filled this November real wedding at Hodsock Priory. The sweet woodland theme was brought to life with decorative foraged nuts and pinecones as table décor. Rustic wooden signage and table numbers added character and charm.
Dahlias and roses in soft shades of pink and mauve brought a gentle touch of glamour, while plenty of foliage created texture and interest in the beautiful floral arrangements on each table.
The gorgeous, tiered wedding cake was dressed with fresh figs and foliage, for a charming, natural vibe.
If you’re planning a December wedding, why not go all out with a chic festive-themed big day? At Hodsock Priory we do Christmas in style. The antique wooden panelling and sumptuous interiors provide the perfect backdrop for the most stylish of seasonal décor.
Traditionally decorated Christmas trees add some elegant festive cheer to our historic spaces. Here, our ceremony room has received the prettiest of seasonal makeovers with a large garland aisle frame, glass baubles and hurricane jars filled with glowing candles.
The Pavilion, Hodsock Priory’s wow-factor reception space, looks incredible with the halls decked ready for a winter wedding. Deep red chair ties, captivating red and green floral displays, hanging glass baubles, sequin table runners and swathes of berries come together to create a decadent take on Christmas styling. We adore this timeless wedding reception set-up.
All the glamour
A winter wedding is the perfect excuse to go all-out with some glamorous reception styling. Here, our real couple transformed Hodsock Priory with a show-stopping white floral wall backdrop and elevated white floral displays, complete with trailing foliage.
The luxe vibe was carried through every part of the reception styling, from the glass table plan to the statement wedding cake, complete with a circular, flower embellished frame and floral table cover.
Bold blooms in the richest of jewel tones – think deep purples, bright blues and vibrant reds – help to bring a touch of drama to your winter wedding reception. Here, our real bride and groom have kept the rest of the styling minimal to let the floral arrangements shine.
The sumptuous colour palette is carried through on the elegant wedding stationery – from the table numbers to the menu. Paired with sparkling glassware and crisp white tablecloths, it’s a contemporary take on winter wedding style.
