Here at Footprint Photography, we just love this time of year. The crisp winter sunlight, the festive gatherings, and the gorgeous decorations are the perfect opportunity to get some beautiful photographs of friends and family. As professional wedding photographers in Sheffield, we know that the Christmas period is also a magical time for weddings, so we’ve put together a few of our favourite ideas for making your winter wedding full to the brim with festive cheer!
Red Bridesmaid Dresses and Groomsmen Accessories
Rich cherry reds and bold crimson shades are truly the colours of the season, and using them in your bridesmaids and groomsmen attire can make a stunning festive impact at a Christmas wedding.
Ancient folklore suggests that the Druids thought of holly as a sacred plant and believed that it had magical powers of protection. So why not pop a spring in the buttonholes, or incorporate the plant into your bouquet?
Festive Table Decorations
Elegant pillar candles and poinsettias make for great centre pieces on the tables at your wedding reception. You might also like to try hurricane candle holders with large red pillar candles inside, and perhaps fill the bottom with crystals or decorate the case with seasonal foliage such as holly and ivy.
All white tables can look really beautiful at winter weddings too. Create an ice-white frosty looking table with fairy lights and candles. Keep your flowers, napkins and place settings neutral, and if you’d like an extra sparkle, try scattering crystals on the table.
Make the Best of the Winter Weather
There is nothing more magical on your wedding day than a generous covering of snow, but although it does look beautiful, you may find that some guests have travel problems. It’s worth keeping a close eye on the weather forecast for a few days prior to your wedding, that way if plans need to be altered, or alternative methods of transport arranged, you will have time to sort them out.
Wedding photography in winter can be spectacular, especially if it is a clear bright day. As experienced wedding photographer in Sheffield, we are experts in making the most of this light to produce stunning wedding photography.
