Traditional Christmas Wedding Inspiration from Russia
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And now I celebrate Christmas in the Summer (the only thing about living ‘down under’ that I can’t get used to) I just can’t resist a snowy scene and the traditional yuletide shades of red and green. Luckily that’s exactly what this fabulous inspiration shoot, all the way from Russia, is packed full of – complete with berries, fur muffs and a reindeer!! Consider me completely smitten……
Before we get lost in this heavenly vision of holiday hues a few words from the lovely Mariya of Bride’s Tip, the talented lady behind the florals, design and stationery….. “This shoot was a winter wonderland dream. We designed it to show how magical the chilly months of the year are. Nothing is quite as lovely as a blanket of crisp clean snow in a frozen forest. The deep reds and earthy greens were a beautiful touch for the cold winter scenery. We used wooden details, evergreen garlands and tartan pattern, this shoot is everything we love from the year’s chilliest season.
Designer Olga Yakushkina created a wonderful winter bridal gown exclusively for the shoot. We are so proud of our beautiful model Yana Kizlova who braved the winter cold for the shoot!
It was such a pleasure working with photographer Sergey Ulanov. His eye for delicate beauty and all the little details brought extra magic to the story.”
Oh my goodness, how precious is that reindeer? A huge thankyou to the whole creative team behind this beauty, and especially to photographer Sergey Ulanov.
If this finally has you in the holiday spirit and has left you wanting more, then you will find something bright & beautiful here with a perfectly DIYable ceremony backdrop (Christmas wedding or not!), here for something a little more rustic, oh and this inspiration board is rather lovely too! Or for a more unconventional colour palette you might want to peruse this romantic rustic holiday wedding inspiration, and you will love this swoonworthy snowy wedding inspiration from earlier in the week.
