Luxe + Moody Winter Wedding Inspiration Near a Royal Family Retreat

Moody Winter Wedding Inspiration

If it’s good enough for the royal family, it’s good enough for us! This moody winter wedding inspiration is filled with luxe floral details and modern-fairy tale bridal fashion on castle-like grounds. Wyresdale Park is a dreamy estate and working farm nestled in the Forest of Bowland, a favorite retreat for the royals. And it’s no wonder—expansive moorlands sit under sweeps of sky and the area was officially named an “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.”

Not a traditional winter theme, Carrie-Ann Tilley at Bespoke Event Styling drew inspiration from dark colors to capture the winter atmosphere. There’s a bespoke bridal look with a skirt styled two ways, a decadent tablescape, and a trio of cakes all settled within the hidden beauties and corners of the grounds.

Let’s take a look at the dreamy day, shall we! Sam Sparks Photo captured every lovely detail:

We told you winter bridal looks would turn to skirt combinations, and now, here we are! The bride’s Wtoo Watters Kiki skirt from Foxglove Brides was paired with two tops for two striking looks. First up, a bridal blazer!
