For celebrations unfolding in cooler climates or seasons, embrace a wintry palette seeking out spectacular natural settings bleached of any colour. Weaving crystalline elements, translucent fabrics, bare branches and ashen timber, organically elegant styling will emerge as a natural extension of the surroundings.

Consider for your ceremony setting, a grove of silver birch trees or an orchid, whose rows of bare branches (or winter blossom) will form spectacular, cathedral-like framing. Similarly, a white windswept beach surrounded by silver grasses, offers a stunning backdrop for barely there styling (think ghost chairs and sheer, billowing flags).
Adopting a tone on tone palette of white, bone, silver and grey, layer loose fabrics for sheer chair covers or clouds of cloth draped from a driftwood arch. Generously pile blankets or sheepkins throughout the ceremony seating, and line aisles with candles, nested into the sand or housed in crystalline vessels.
