Ava & Corey - Millbrook Lodge Hotel Wedding, Ballynahinch

Updated: Apr 13

Ava & Corey's Winter Wedding Bash at Millbrook Lodge ❄️

Saying "I Do" in a Winter Wonderland

Remember that epic December wedding I shot at Millbrook Lodge? Ava and Corey's big day was the perfect way to wrap up 2022, and let me tell you, it was magical! It felt almost poetic that this stunning venue, nestled in Ballynahinch, hosted both my first and last wedding of the year. Talk about bookends, right?

The Dream Team

Ava, a vision in white, was surrounded by her bridesmaids rocking gorgeous emerald green dresses. The guys looked sharp in classic three-piece suits, perfectly complementing the whole winter wonderland vibe.

Picture Perfect Moments

After the ceremony, we ventured out for some photos. The nearby ruined abbey provided a unique and dramatic backdrop for some fun snaps with the whole bridal party. Then, Ava and Corey stole the show with some seriously romantic couple portraits around the frosted grounds. The winter sunlight cast a warm glow on their love-filled moments, and let's just say, they were killing it!

Party Time!

Back at the lodge, the reception room was decked out with twinkling fairy lights and beautiful wintery flowers. It was the definition of cozy chic! Guests were treated to a delicious feast, heartfelt speeches that had everyone in tears (happy tears, of course!), and tunes that got the party rocking. Ava and Corey, clearly smitten with each other, danced the night away under the warm glow of the lights. It was pure joy and it was infectious!

Feeling Inspired? Let's Make Your Winter Wedding Magical!

If Ava and Corey's winter wonderland wedding is giving you all the feels, here are some tips to create your own snowy celebration:

  • Winter Wonderland Vibes: Embrace the season! Think fairy lights, snowflakes, evergreens – anything that screams winter wonderland. Don't forget warm lighting to create a cozy atmosphere, especially if it's a chilly day.

  • Venue Goals: Choose a venue that complements your theme. A cozy cabin with a roaring fireplace is perfect for a rustic winter wedding, while a grand ballroom can be transformed into a winter palace with the right decor.

  • Color Palette: Jewel tones like emerald green, sapphire blue, and deep purples add a touch of luxury and complement the winter theme. Don't be afraid to add pops of silver or white for a winter wonderland feel.

  • Keeping Your Guests Toasty: No one wants to be shivering at your wedding! Provide blankets for guests to cuddle up with, have a selection of warm drinks on hand like hot cocoa and mulled wine, and choose a venue that can keep things nice and toasty.
