Minimalist Luxe Weddings | Get the Look

15th Jun 2018

As a popular wedding venue in the New Forest we have seen many wedding trends come and go, but there's nothing more stylish than keeping it simple and classic. The 'Minimalist Luxe' look is effortless, timeless and oozes sophistication.

Here are some of our favourite ways to create the 'Minimalist Luxe' look at The Montagu Arms Hotel.


Period Features

Minimal dressing is required to make your wedding look really high-end when you hold your special day at a period property like The Montagu Arms Hotel. Dating back to the 17th century, the arts and crafts exterior original parquet flooring, oak panelling and high ceilings give that luxury feel with minimal effort. Relax to the gently tick of the grandfather clock and unwind in our pretty English gardens filled with fragrant flora.




Our preffered wedding florist, Jo Hicks, knows a thing or two about classic understated floristry. Neutral tones will contine to always reign supreme in the wedding world so Jo recommends keeping your colour palette natural with cream roses for the bouquet accented by delicate gypsophila. Follow this theme through to your table decorations with antique effect silver footed vases filled with large cream roses, delicate ammi and scented freesias to perfectly complement the dark oak panelling of the Terrace Restaurant.

The Dress

The experts at Brides of Winchester recommend the gorgeous 'Drusila' gown by Pronovias. Classic lace and delicate gemstones feature on this mermaid style dress. The sensual V neck-line and fitted waist enhance the feminie sillouhette for a completely timeless look.

Hair & Makeup

Kerry from Beautiful Brides recommends subtle makeup for a pretty natural look. A light foudation to even your skin tone, a sweep of mascara, a kiss of blush on the cheek and a rose tinted lip are all you need.

Sweep your hair up into a classic bun and secure with an art deco inspired jewel hair clip.
