We’re feeling superrrr festive here at UW! It looks like we’re set for a slightly different Christmas after this rollercoaster of a year, so we keep counting our blessings and spreading as much wedding magic as possible, hoping to keep you inspired and hopeful!
This Christmas micro wedding is a beauty! It’s cosy, romantic and simple, featuring a beautiful NHS nurse and her partner. With small weddings on the rise, this festive wedding inspiration is perfect for those considering a winter elopement, or wanting some seasonal wedding styling inspo!
A Christmas Micro Wedding For the NHS
This Christmas micro wedding captures the cosiness and intimacy of small weddings. These lovely models are a real couple who intended to get married in June this year, but had to postpone due to the pandemic. Sian has been working on the front line of the country’s response to the pandemic as a nurse in COVID ITU (Intensive Care Unit). This shoot was organised to provide some distraction from the pressures of her work and provide a taste of what she and her fiancé Curtis have to look forward to when their big day finally arrives.
Don’t they both look stunning! Sian is glowing with Hollywood curls and a bold red lip by Nadia Wyatt Hair & Makeup. She is the epitome of ‘retro glam’ with tea length wedding dress and fur shrug is from Couture And Tiara Bridal. To complete the look, she’s rocking hand-painted wedding shoes by Inanna Bespoke Shoes and sustainable bridal accessories by Casa And Flores. Curtis looks dashing in his navy blue suit from Dickies Suit Hire.
Intimate & Cozy Wedding Styling for a NHS wedding
This Christmas micro wedding shoot took place at Great Betley Farmhouse in Sussex. It’s the perfect wedding venue to get away for a small wedding with a bridal suite and 3 other double bedrooms. So you can have up to 6 of your nearest and dearest join you for a countryside retreat to celebrate. The venue was brought to life with styling by Whispering Love, florals by Bryony Mae Flowers, and photography by Moments Captured.
Your wedding catering can add so much ‘pazazz’ to your big day! These bitesize snacks by The Elegant Feast and festive truffles from The Truffle Witch are just gorgeous, really adding to the cosy and Christmassy vibe. Let’s not forget this stunner of a wedding cake from Rosepetal Cake Company!
One more time for the NHS! A Christmas micro wedding celebration
It’s so heartwarming to see this gorgeous couple cosied up by the fireplace. Sian and Curtis look like they had so much fun! Their wedding will take place next year and we wish them all the happiness in the world (maybe they’ll let us feature it too?).
On behalf of all the wedding suppliers involved in this shoot, we’d like to take a moment to praise the incredible work of the NHS and it’s heroic staff. This Christmas micro wedding shoot is dedicated to them.
Thanks to the NHS, there is HOPE for love, and for weddings, and for life to continue!
Have a very merry Christmas! Team UW X
