Rustic Winter Wedding Inspiration

Intimate & Rustic Winter Wedding

A historic village located in the heart of Franconia, a place both the bride & groom carry so many childhood memories that nearly every corner tells a story. In the midst of it; a rustic tavern serving hearty regional dishes, just perfect on cold winter days like these, quickly became the centre of a family tradition. The family around Alex & Linus gathers here every year to enjoy a traditional German Christmas dish, roasted goose with steaming hot dumplings and red cabbage.

It felt just like the right thing to do for Alex & Linus to celebrate their Civil Wedding here and we couldn’t agree more; what a perfect opportunity to make this year’s Christmas get-together extra special.

With their big celebrations planned out in June 2017, a summer wedding, this intimate Winter Wedding was an exciting contrast for both, the couple and the Wedding Stylists of Blue & Ivory, who curated the event. Aiming for a modern & minimal twist to the oh so sumptuous Christmas theme by combining traditional elements like the shades of red and green with simple shapes and organic fabrics by using raw linen.

At arrival, the couple was taken away for some utterly romantic photos around the venue before their guests were arriving for the official events. At a crispy 1° Celsius Linus held his Alex tight, keeping her warm and creating an intimate atmosphere that made the photographers Melli & Shayne capture their love in such a beautifully authentic and personal way.

A carriage drawn by two stunning Haflinger horses made the perfect means of transport for Alex & Linus to arrive at the Ceremony Venue, a nearby historic mansion. A speech full of lovely anecdotes about the couple’s journey that finalised with Alex’ & Linus’ promise for each other was the touching core of the celebrations and with the daylight fading candle light led the way for our newlyweds.

Gathered around a warming bon fire family and friends held their first toast for the couple with mugs of Glühwein, a German mulled wine seasoned with spices and fruits. It was a magical atmosphere welcoming the wedding party into a night filled with love, laughter and a very memorable Christmas Meal.
