Design Concept: Sage and Teal

Just because Christmas is over shouldn’t mean an end to all the celebrations. January and February are fantastic months for weddings and a winter wedding is the perfect antidote to the January blues. I adore winter weddings and I don’t think we make nearly enough of them in the UK. Not only do you escape the worry of whether the weather will hold but most venues reduce their fees over the winter, giving you the opportunity to make your budget go that much further.


This concept about celebrating winter in all it’s beauty. The potentially cold palette of teal and sage is offset by sparkling diamantes and accents of silver, creating a cosy but fresh, modern feel. For flowers I’d use lots of herbs and silvery grey eucalyptus whilst for favours I’d choose potted succulents decorated with pretty silver ribbon. For the menu I’d choose roasted lamb and root vegetables with hot chocolate fondant for dessert and in the evening I’d cover every surface, nook and cranny with lightly scented tea lights. For entertainment I’d chose a live band or even a ceilidh and as guests were leaving I’d distribute goodbye gifts of hand made nougat and Scotch whisky. Ooo it makes me want to go and put on a party dress!
