Your East Anglian Wedding - December 2022/Januar 2023 (Issue 58)

SEASONAL romance Red, burgundy, gold, sage green and woody tones were all combined to show readers how romantic this time of year is Images courtesy of Matt Brasnett – ‘I Do’ Photography Wedding and events manager at Applewood Hall, Chloe Edwards, reveals how this sumptuously styled shoot took place at this renowned Norfolk wedding venue. “We scheduled an autumn wedding fair for October so autumn and winter styling were in mind when thinking about dressing the venue,” shares Chloe. “The colours red, burgundy and gold provided a rich and romantic colour palette that fitted with weddings at this time of year. I always find autumn and winter weddings have their own special hint of romance that comes with this cosier time of year. “Looking further into wedding colour trends for our most recent booked couples for 2023 and 2024, along with just talking to couples viewing our venue for the first time, it seemed sage green was proving to be a popular choice. I decided to incorporate this into the colour scheme, adding rustic wood details to tie everything together. A bohemian yet almost regal creative concept was developed – perfect for seasonal inspiration for Norfolk countryside wedding venues like us at Applewood Hall. We have a homely feel Wedding Garden too that provides those natural and seasonal coloured backgrounds for the day and with a fairylight-covered birdcage-style gazebo also giving couples a perfect spot for that romantic evening shot too. “Alongside the romance aspect to the shoot, I wanted a sense of fun to come across, many couples want a more personalised, relaxed and enjoyable day and having our ‘bride and groom’ models being an actual couple in real life meant we hit the brief perfectly.” 49 LOCAL INSPIRATION
