December: Sparkle and Shimmer

December is the ultimate month for celebration and there is so much magic in the air as Christmas draws near and winter arrives.  Dark nights full of Christmas shopping, carol singers and candlelight and mulled wine by open fires, a Christmas wedding is truly beautiful.

The best venues at this time of year are grand and imposing with large reception halls and oversized fresh pine trees carrying the scent of the season.  An entrance lined with lanterns and a reception suite overflowing with poinsettias, Champagne towers and fairy lights twinkling as day turns to dusk.

Some of my favourite venues for this sort of wedding includes the romance of Scorrier House, Boringdon Hall in Plymouth, the unique magic of Pentillie or the rugged romance of Polhawn Fort, I love them all, especially at this time of year!

My dress of the month for December is about sparkle and shimmer (of course!) and has to be this beauty complete with beaded bodice and fairytale tulle skirt.  There is no gown more show-stopping and sensational than our Seraphina…
