Traditional Christmas wedding

Friday 12th January 2018

Zoë and Tom were married on the 17th December 2016 and held their reception at Zoë's family home in Buckinghamshire. A traditional Christmas wedding theme was order of the day, with strictly no tackiness. Think snow style confetti, rich red hues, candlelight and mulled wine to name a few. It was just so festive and magical in equal measure. Total Hospitality absolutely loved catering this wedding back in December 2016. Photos by Lola Rose Photography.
