Have you ever dreamed of a nature-inspired woodland wedding?
This shoot was all about getting back to nature! Taking inspiration from natural foliage, we focused on using shades of green, complimented by copper and silver tones.
Set in Stover wood, I wanted the table to feel like an extension of the natural surroundings, perfect for an intimate wedding.
Claire from The Flower Fields created the most beautiful draping centrepiece that stretched the length of the table. She twisted together a variety of foliage including ferns and ivy as well as gypsophila, jasmine and even mushrooms!
Gershwins did the most fabulous job of the hair, including a loose subtle plait running over the front of the hairline giving a slightly boho feel. Claire added a handmade crown, created by twisting ivy, gypsophelia and jasmine together.
The A-line dress by Lily & Louie was a short, strapless design with a soft petticoat underneath. We really wanted to show the versatility of such a simple cut and so it was paired with a variety of different wraps and head-dresses.
For the second look we added a delicate lace shawl with silk ribbon tie and a feather and flower headband to give a soft, ‘swan-lake’ inspired look.
This shoot showcases 3 amazing bouquets by The Flower Field, all of which were inspired by shades of green and white. The bouquets mixed tones and textures as well as scents by using herbs such as rosemary, sage and eucalyptus.
A copper planter tag with handwritten silver writing made an effective name-place for the table.
For the favours, I wanted to keep things simple but beautiful. I provided each guest with a small succulent in a glass candle-holder for a unique gift.
Make-up was provided by the fabulous Genevieve Satha Make-up and was kept natural using warm browns and coper tones on the eyes coupled with a nude shade on the lips.
For the 3rd look, we used a feather and net fascinator which complimented the soft up-do at the back.
This was then coupled with a feather stole for a more dramatic look.
The 2nd bouquet was slightly softer with the inclusion of roses, peonies and sweet peas.
We then coupled this with a large feather fascinator for a soft but bold look.
The final bouquet was perhaps the most unusual and unique look, perfect for those wanting something different – ideal for an autumn wedding in the woods!
The picture below was taken as our lovely model was patiently waiting for the next head-dress to be put on! I’ve included it because I love it – sitting on a metal stepladder looking up at the forest! It really sums up the feel of this shoot……relaxed, peaceful and at one with nature!
