The Wellbeing Farm recently gathered together a team of suppliers to create a rustic Winter shoot. Winter Weddings are becoming increasingly popular with such a vast colour and texture palette to choose from. Here they chose cranberry tones, greenery, with that all-important dusting of snow for good measure!
The Wellbeing Farm take up the story from here “It was a
misty and moody December morning when the team arrived to unload and get ready
for this Winter styled shoot. There was glistening snow on the surrounding
hills making The Wellbeing Farm feel like a warm and welcoming hideaway – even
the resident alpacas weren’t brave enough to greet us upon arrival!

rustic, farmyard setting. Flowers for the day were showcased by the talented
Michelle Hamilton at Love Rosie Venue Decor with some added tassel tail
balloons provided by Balloonsmith – just to add that element of fun.
If the barn

covered. Host to an additional converted barn (included for your exclusive use)

a comfy chesterfield with blankets and cushions available for all. Combine that

you tried! Not forgetting the well loved ‘brew station’ and chef Karl
Popples infamous spiced sweet potato butternut squash soup – they really do
have it all covered and are wholly realistic to the challenges often faced by
the ever changing and ever surprising British weather system!”

choice for a fun, quirky and magical wedding – any time of the year.
