Glamorous Winter Wedding | Real Wedding

Good morning lovelies! Today we have an extremely elegant Browns Bride on the blog wearing the most beautiful Reem Acra wedding dress. Talk about swooo-oon! Sarah and Adrian had an elegant, contemporary winter wedding with a hint of vintage.

It’s the perfect wedding to help you cool down in this mini heatwave. Ahhh, you can just feel the crisp winters air…

Reem Acra Wedding Dress | Browns Bride

My dress was designed by Reem Acra and I bought it from Browns in London. I loved the overlay with all the embroidery and beading.  The design was classic, but that gave it a vintage feel.

Our Florist, Yannik Pascal Gabory and I worked together. He created the amazing flower displays and Wish Tree centre piece and I provided all the props and other little extras to style the room. Yannick used  lots of gorgeous flowers… a mixture of roses, some retro flowers such as carntions, lots of Gypsum and also sprayed lots of greenery silver, to give it that vintage winter wonderland twist.

My bridesmaids wore long strapless dresses with a sweetheart neckline in navy blue from Dessy.  Via a friend, I hired four mink fur stoles for them to wear over their dresses.

The year leading up to the wedding I spent researching and collecting lots of little extra bits….tealight holders, candleabras, vintage signs, pictures and paddle signs for fun and to make our day more personal.

What a stunning wedding, so elegant and classy! Totally love the bridal parties outfits. Adrain looks dapper in his suit and bow tie and I’m loving the fur coats on the bridesmaids and of course, Sarah looks amazing in her stunning Reem Acra bridal gown. Such a beautiful bride.

What do you think my loves? Are you planning a winter wedding? If so, what would be your perfect colour scheme?
