last weekend I've been to a winter wedding and not only the month 'Januar' defined it being one. Luckily, the bridal couple could celebrate their amazing day in a wonderful snowscape.
All guests had to struggle a lit bit to arrive safely at the wedding because of slippery roads. Apart from that, it was a challenge to choose a proper outfit. Especially for all women the challenge was to look amazing, to wear high heels and to do not freeze. ;-)
At the end I can say it was a perfect day, for the bridal couple as well as for the guests.
I want to share with you how I got ready and I give you some insights of the wedding location.
I decided to wear a knee-length dress, with a narrow cut at the chest passing over to a falling skirt. You may recognize it from my Winter Haul.

Concerning make-up I wanted to have the accent on my eyes using my Naked 3 palette while I've used a very light nude lipstick.
For accessoires I've chosen matching black and creamy-white colours for my earrings and necklace giving the outfit an accent wearing my rosegold Fossil(*) watch. I've painted my nails in a dark elegant red from Manhattan in the colour 57U(*). And because it was a very festive day, my outfit wouldn't be complete without using my absolutey favourite perfume Prada Candy.

|The outfit is complete - now let's go to celebrate with the bridal couple.|
The wedding took place in a monastery. The interior was appointed with mirrors everywhere, burning candles and a warm, faint light creating a cozy atmosphere while it was cold and snowed in outside.

After the wedding ceremony there was a cocktail reception in a small winter garden with served appetizers aside.

Every guest had an assigned seat where a prepared gift was waiting for everybody. It was a small package filled with some Haribos. Oh yes, Van loves it ! :-D

The dining room was two-storied and I had the chance to sit at a table on the upper floor having an amazing overview over the whole room (and especially a direct view to the bridal couple ;-)). It was a pleasure looking at the bride in her wonderful dress.
Do you also get a little bit emotional at those days? ;-)

Dinner was also amazing. The starter was served at the table while the main course and the dessert were served at a buffet. Here you see the starter plate and a variation of the main course and the dessert.

Unfortunately, I didn't had the chance to take a picture of the wedding cake but finally I could catch one from one of the decoration roses.

After midnight there was a fire-breather making a show outside in the snow. You could stand in the warm interior watching the spectacle outside. It was a perfect-matching location. At the end he inflamed a heart-figure. It was a little bit hard to get a good picture. Anyhow I'll show you my best one that you can get an impression of this breathtaking moment.

I was very happy being part of this wonderful wedding.
