James and Renee chose to celebrate their marriage at Hazlewood Castle, a luxurious wedding venue. They viewed six different venues, but nothing else compared to the historic estate. Renee also liked the fact it had a history as a maternity hospital, as she is a midwife.
The couple were conscious to avoid having a ‘winter wonderland’ theme at their winter wedding, but used lots of candles to create a warm glow. Renee also distributed cinnamon sticks around the room and arranged for mulled wine to be served.
They tried to avoid colour – instead opting for a muted palette of white, ivory and silver. The bride even bought new decorations for the Christmas tree so it’d match their colour scheme!
