If You Go Down To The Woods Today

This shoot exudes cool…from the bride and groom fashion, to the gorgeous wicker furniture.

Seriously. Cool. Yep. This shoot exudes cool in so many ways…from the bride and groom fashion, to the gorgeous use of bang-on-trend wicker furniture. Oh, and not to mention the beautiful blue-eyed canine companion.

Today’s feature shoot comes in the form of a quaint glamping tale, set in beautiful Cherry Hill Park in Maryland.

“An amazing group of vendors and I came together to create this moody Glamping Boho styled shoot! Our shoot took place in an eco friendly environment in a secluded Glamping location in Maryland. Our trendy bohemian couple was paired with a sweet blue-eyed husky as they shared pizza with each other around our nature inspired tablescape” Jessica, Event Planner

Honestly, we can’t really think of a better way to spend your wedding day than out in nature, round a campfire eating pizza!

Enjoy!

Wild & Free at Browning Bros

With a focus on sustainability, this wedding inspiration shoot is seriously beautiful!

What do insane floral installations, reclaimed wooden backdrops, tipis and bohemian styling all have in common? We love, love, love them! Thats what! So we’re unbelievably thrilled to be bringing this glorious wedding inspiration shoot to you today!

Conceptualised and coordinated by Wed in The Wild Editor, Jenna, the shoot combined creams, golds, whites, browns and greens in a neutral palette perfect for a bohemian wedding. The focus was also on sustainability – all styling and hire items were either repurposed, recycled or sourced from vintage shops, the hop wreaths utilised by the florist was used again after the shoot for a wedding, and all the gorgeous linens were all repurposed and dyed using natural, plant or recycled metal dyes.

“When dreaming up this shoot, I had no venue in mind other than Browning Brothers, and their Chalkney Water Meadow site. I love their tipi; the colour is perfect for the palette I had assigned to the shoot, and I knew it would also provide the necessary drama. Their site is brimming with beautiful little pockets of nature; including a beautiful lake and an open field where we shot the models running through the grasses. And luckily, their bell tents were available for the models to get ready in.” Jenna

The shoot focused on three key installation areas, with a number of smaller setups interwoven throughout the day. Anthology Vintage Hire had just finalised their three part reclaimed wooden backdrop, which can be made longer or shorter based on requirement. We utilised all three panels for the tablescape and seating area, and it provided the perfect frame.

Mia Sylvia worked her fabrics into two beautiful swathed installations, whilst Emma Spowage created a bold and dramatic pampas and hop-filled foliage installation, littered with dainty little flowers. The Rock The Day team styled the tablescape utilising a rust-dyed runner from Mia Sylvia, a hand-worked hop garland by Emma Spowage and a gorgeous collection of vintage sourced brass candlesticks and deer. The bohemian nods were continued in the two other installations; the low grazing table and the gorgeous, abundant a-frame setup, which flanked The White Mules drinks trailer.

“When I approached Emily from Maid of Gingerbread, I was so excited by her enthusiasm in creating a tipi out of gingerbread. I had admired her work for eons and I knew her unique creativity would provide an amazing statement creation which would be worlds apart from the naked cakes we see so often. The detailed macrame piping and the gorgeous matcha green tea infused piped grasses and flowers were mindblowingly pretty, and the whole confection just worked so well with the larger setup and styling. It was also yummy.” Jenna

Emma Spowage, in sheer determination the day before her biggest wedding of 2018, provided the most stunning corner piece for the wall setup alongside a gorgeous bridal bouquet which we trailed with silks by Mia Sylvia. Emma also created a really unique succulent inspired headdress for the models to wear, which included some of the hops she had foraged for the shoot too. The bouquet was abundant and utilised white florals, pops of yellow, oodles of foliage and green amaranthus.

Two models were chosen for the shoot; Louise and Rachel, who both have completely different looks and personalities. For Louise, the team selected gorgeous Chantal Lauren and Otuduy dresses, which worked perfectly with her Texas-native cowboy boots and relaxed hair and makeup. Rachel rocked Rembo Styling and Francis Bridal gowns, which provided a beautiful contrast to her more structured, plaited hair. All dresses were supplied by Rock The Frock Bridal who were extremely accommodating and fabulous at recommending dresses to pair with the moodboard. Lisa Alger provided hair and makeup services.

“I decided to use ASOS accessories as I hadn’t come across anything I similar elsewhere – I wanted a hat, and I also wanted to utilise a draping gold headpiece that I had come across on the website, which Rachel wore. On the day, we noticed that Louise already wore a gorgeous Texas state necklace, which we decided to use; Louise is a country singer and her boyfriend lives in the states, so it actually worked perfectly with the tone of the shoot. Lisa also worked in some beautiful gold clips into the girls hair. I had approached She’s Lost Control who sent us a gorgeous box of goodies to utilise as part of a number of styling setups, including crystals, candles and love sprays from their online collections. We also lent a couple of dried sage bundles which we ended burning to ward off the wasps on the day; however, the burning sage fit so well that we decided to include it in the images!” Jenna

For the stationery, Jenna decided to utilise succulents in order to tie in with the styling on the day, and also incorporate celestial nods in the shape of watercolour moon graphics. The stationery also included feathers, dreamcatchers and antler charms.

“I wanted to provide something different to the norm, so I created a bohemian lanyard style order of the day booklet, which included a who’s who of the wedding party, an order of service sheet, a poem and a drinks token page. I also decided to create a beautiful organic cotton printed banner, with a gorgeous quote. To this, I sewed in tassels to the corners for a textural feel”. Jenna

The shoot was captured by British Wedding Photographer of the Year 2018, Kelsie Low, who’s direction, patience and willingness to contort herself into various positions to get the money shot is nothing short of inspiring!

“Working with Kelsie and the rest of the team was such a pleasure – each supplier went above and beyond, and the result was our magic.” Jenna

Boho On The Farm

A sweet shoot full of bohemian, rustic charm and some little animal friends.

We’ve a beautiful, sweet little shoot on the blog today…full of bohemian, rustic charm and including some gorgeous little animal friends…and hailing from Hekluhestar, Netherlands no less.

Whats great about this shoot is that it shows just how the simplest of venues can be transformed with minimal input – some macrame details, florals and a great cake can make all the difference, and can transform an agricultural space really effectively.

Real Wedding: Shaney & Brant

Shaney & Brant’s wedding incorporated so much attention to detail, set by a log cabin in the woods.

Ever wanted to get married in the woods, surrounded by your family and friends, right by a secluded lakeside log cabin treehouse? If the answer is yes, then today’s real wedding is total goals…and more.

Shaney & Brant’s wedding incorporated so much attention to detail; from the handmade turkey feather bow ties for the boys to the handmade-by-grandma fur bolero for the bride. Captured by Trinity Photography, this delightful wedding in the woods is as wild and as close to nature as they come…

Spires_Young_TrinityPhotography_DSC0478_big

Set on the beautiful Lake Jocassee, South Carolina, Shaney and Brant rented the treehouse setting for both bridal prep and their first night as man and wife. And all the details of their wedding nodded to the natural surroundings in which they had chosen to marry.

“My husband and I have always loved the lake! When I found the awesome venue, The Lost Treehouse of Lake Jocassee, I knew it was just the spot to say “I Do”! The setting and location of the venue was absolutely perfect! I felt that it really represented Brant and I. The secluded, but welcoming, woods with a touch of the lake hidden in between the mountains was the perfect spot for our close friends and family to witness the start of the next chapter of our lives. We opted for a bohemian, rustic woods theme to pull off the entire look. Earthy colors with a pop of color were my go-to! We both grew up in small churches, so our ceremony was very intimate and traditional” Shaney

The couple were married in a traditional ceremony before a constructed log arch, draped in vintage cloth and adorned with foliage and seasonal blooms, and a skull with antlers. Guests were seated on heavy, natural wooden pews, which were decorated with feathers, more flowers and candles on tree stumps; all contributing to the warming, nature-filled theme.

“Every part of my wedding decor was DIY. My mother and I came up with all the ideas of how we wanted the ceremony and reception to look. With the help of friends and family, we were able to make it happen!” Shaney

Spires_Young_TrinityPhotography_DSC4337_big

Spires_Young_TrinityPhotography_DSC4418_big

Spires_Young_TrinityPhotography_DSC4313_big

Shaney and Brant really wanted their day to be personal; they played on this need for super personalisation to make their day as unique and as much ‘them’ as possible.

“It is hard to pick a favorite part about the day. Overall, it was nothing short of what I could have imagined! I loved having our dogs a part of our special day! Our dogs are like our kids, so of course they were in our wedding!” Shaney

The antlers used throughout the day were all from Brant’s families collection, and Shaney’s dad and uncle cut most of the pieces of wood which were used for various focal points. Even the wooden chairs used for the reception were either found or donated by family members. Family members even helped set up tents, decor and picked up food…so the whole day was a real family affair.

Shaney and Brant have such a wonderful back story…friends since children and high school sweethearts, Shaney says they never looked back.  On the eighth year they were together, they got engaged on the lake with their dogs! Brant proposed as they were floating in a boat in the back of a cove around sunset.

Shaney always knew she wanted to have her great-grandmother’s ring incorporated into her own ring, but was completely surprised when she found out that her ring consisted of not only her great-grandmother’s ring, but Brant’s grandmother’s as well!

For the lovely couple, their day turned out just as they had hoped for; surrounded by family and friends, on a day where they had had a hand in every single detail. Indeed, when asked what advice she would give to people planning their own day, she said:

“The best advice I can give to anyone is that it is your wedding and your life! Try to incorporate the things that mean the most to you!” Shaney

Little Lost Cabin in The Woods

There are so many pretty tones in today’s shoot that we’re really gearing up for the warmer months…

There are so many pretty tones in today’s shoot that we’re really gearing up for the warmer months; pinks, lilacs, peaches and even golden tones. Hmm, yes…makes us feel all warm inside. 

And the colourful flowers on the sumptuously decked out tablescape aren’t the only things brightening our mood…the ridiculously stunning dress, lacy and complete with gloriously oversized trumpet sleeves, will be sure to fill you all the way up…

Submitted by Elizabeth A Images, the elopement shoot took place in a secluded log cabin in the woods of Mount Pleasant, North Carolina. The models, real-life newlyweds, brought a sweet and genuine glow to the day…showing their complete and utterly lost for words love with the team around them.

Soft and warm shades of pink and mustard were the order of the day and the team fulfilled that brief. Flowers by Vintage Soul Floral Design incorporated roses, peonies and lush foliage. Flowers adorned not only the tablescape and the log cabin’s fireplace, but also the models hat in a unique and playful twist on the bridal fedora trend.

All details were paid attention too, from the abundant, graceful and flowing tablescape, to the flatlay for the unique and ingenious wooden stationery which was designed by the super creative Cut Above Stationery Team. We love the use of different wooden textures in the stationery, combined with a pressed fern motif.

And that macrame cake…sheer perfection by The Wow Factor Cakes.

The bridal models makeup was kept simple and natural with only a smattering of pink lipstick and a light dusting of peachy pink colour across her eyelids; working perfectly with both her skin tone and the colour palette for the day. The groom looked dapper in his quirky shirt and on-trend mustard chinos, complete with a wooden textured bolo tie.

We love this playful spin on an elopement shoot…set somewhere really secluded, and featuring all the playful colours of summer.

Literal hats off to a great, creative team!

Neutral Moroccan Vibes…And An Alpaca!

Full of golden tones and pampas, we love this Moroccan styled shoot.

As the weather starts to turn milder, and the days grow longer, we’re looking ahead too summer…which is why we are all about this warming shoot submitted by photographer, Isabel Pogscheba.

Full of golden tones, pampas and simple styling, there is also a surprise guest in the form of a gorgeous, white alpaca. Speaking to Isabel, we learnt that her idea was to create a bridal styled shoot in a rustic, moroccan, festival style…and the suppliers she pulled together certainly nailed the concept!

It’s beautifully neutral, and has oodles of character…

Alpaca Bridaleditorial 5

Bathed in golden light, despite the weather on the day being dreary and damp, the team brought to life a little corner of the field which is the alpaca’s home with gorgeous, vintage wicker furniture, brass vases and candlesticks, and bang on-trend pouffes.

We especially love the cake with the stalks of florals, pampas and feathers sticking upright out of the centre…such a unique and modern way to style a buttercream cake!

The bridal style overflowed with lace…with a lace skirt and top, and a gorgeous shawl to drape over the models shoulders. Opting to go without jewellery, the team decided to up-style her gown with a beautiful floral crown handmade with white roses and eucalyptus, and a stunning bridal turban in gold, shimmery tones.

We love the different take on the boho style…natural, effortless and free-flowing, with fresh-faced bridal beauty.

TOP TIP: Vintage wicker and rattan furniture is such a massive trend this year…so if you are a stylist, snap it up on eBay/pre-loved websites or at bootsales/vintage fairs while you can, as new-age replicas are really expensive! Also, buying pre-loved items is much more eco-friendly!

Think chairs, end tables, coffee tables and even day-beds which can be used for sweetheart tables and chill out areas.

Boho With A Twist At Lock 91

We love a boho wedding setup in different, unique locations…like this gorgeous industrial boho shoot in Manchester. 

So you probably know Wed in The Wild best for it’s outdoorsy, boho vibe; being at one with nature and discovering the great outdoors. But we really dig a boho wedding setup in different, unique locations…like this gorgeous industrial boho shoot at Lock 91 in Manchester. 

We don’t know whether it’s Editor Jenna’s northern roots, or whether it’s the beautiful boho nods, but this shoot has some serious styling goals and gorgeous colour pops. It’s making us feel a little bit warm and tingly inside, which is saying something as the weather has turned so cold!

Submitted by Michelle Healey of Michelle Amy Weddings, this whimsical setup will send your head a-spinning with its Pinterest-worthy wedding inspiration…

Now if you are a sucker for macrame like we are, then you’ll love this amazing hexagonal backdrop from Bespoke Events and Styling woven with intricate macrame weaves by Little White Attic. It was certainly one of the focal points of this ‘perfect nod to boho’ styled shoot, which Michelle tells us about…

“We wanted to create a boho style wedding in an industrial setting. Boho is such a fab style and is usually shown in outdoor setting with tipis and such, so we wanted to show that the two can marry together, and with the right setting and venue this can be done indoors.”

The team chose Lock 91 in Manchester as the venue for the shoot; which is, internally, lovely and moody. Emma Boyle’s photography perfectly captured the moodiness of the venue and added to that dark charm that we associate with bohemian weddings.

The team from Little White Attic also supplied an insane macrame canopy, which stole the styling show as far as we are concerned…we would love to see more of it to be honest! This showstopper was used to frame the beautiful cake by Urban Cake House.

The cake, beautifully detailed in its appearance, featured piped macrame, copper hexagons which fitted seamlessly into the theme of the shoot. We especially love the bottom tier, which looks like different colour geodes…and definitely good enough to eat.

We’re not meaning to be biased here, but one of our favourite aspects of the shoot (aside from, well…all of it), is the stationery. There sometimes isn’t enough emphasis on stationery in a shoot but the items provided by Raspberry Toast are just beautiful. And completely in contact to what most stationery for boho weddings looks like. This suite is super clean with gorgeous copper nods, and we are loving Cath’s creativity.

Outdoors, the team setup a tablescape and chill out area for the model, Charlotte, to relax amongst. The florals, by Perfect Bouquet included so much gorgeous texture, from ferns and pampas to delicate cows parsley.

“As we had a setup outside we had to stay on weather watch, dark clouds threatened the skies and we were so lucky, as we wrapped the shoot the heavens opened!” Michelle

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and it’s also the most cosy time of the year for those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere. Today’s epic styled elopement shoot from our faves at Rock & Stone Weddings is bringing us all the festive vibes. Theres snow, there are fur throws, and there is a whole load of Christmassy boho-luxe…

Wrap up and snuggle in tight…this one will give you allllllll the feels…

Amber of Rock & Stone explains more about the concept behind the elopement shoot…

“Kevin & Steph had recently got engaged and answered a model call for a snowy elopement shoot on Mount Rainier. We wanted to create something with some holiday spirit but avoid it looking like an over-the-top Christmas theme. We settled on a magical boho vibe, with lots of texture, a cosy bed in the woods with faux furs and sequins to contrast with the the glorious expanses of white.”

The shoot certainly does that. We love the contrasting textures and how the juxtapose against the beauty of the snowy, natural woodland. When the photos first landed in our inbox we instantly thought…Narnia! A vibe which Amber herself felt too whilst constructing the day.

When flicking through the images, we were blown away by the details. The tablescape is abundant and flowing without looking heavily stylised, and the bed area is just perfection and something we haven’t seen before.

We love how Steph looked so effortless in her chic dress with the prettiest, dazzling embellishments…perfectly glistening in the snowy wonderland. Paired with stone boots and a dramatic oxblood fur coat and fedora, this bridal look is exquisite. Kevin looked suitably dapper, even for a trek up a snowy mountainside…hats off, it must have been freezing!

Kevin, an Arizona native had never seen snow in real life before and so the team loved seeing him experience it for the first time!

“Even though I’ve been to Mount Rainier a few times now, I still get goosebumps, and for Steph & Kevin who had never been before I think they were kind of blown away. We spent the afternoon in the sun, mainly watching Kevin act like a kid at DisneyLand; there’s something pretty cute about seeing a grown man make his first snow angel!” Amber

Christmas has definitely come early with this striking elopement…we hope you enjoy it as much as we do…

An Elopement Set in The Wilds of Vermont

Wild forests, waterfalls and mountaintops, this shoot has it all including an insane floral installation.

This was our first ever submission. But because Kelsey and Liam are such mega, committed photographers, this blog has been a work in progress. I mean, can you imagine our jaws dropping at the beauty of all of this? Wild forests, waterfalls and mountaintops…this shoot has it all, including the sweetest couple, an awesome floral installation and off course, stunning camera work. 

Speaking to Kelsey and getting to know her during this process has been a dream. And she kindly told us the story of how this shoot came to fruition…

“Having grown up spending our winters in the mountains of Vermont, I’ve always dreamt of getting married in the middle of the woods in a place that means so much to me. As I’ve gotten older and introduced Liam to Vermont, we’ve begun to create our own memories and know that we will get married here when do we make it official. Since our love for this place is so strong and with my sister Lindsey launching a new event planning business Wildflower Event and Design with her sister in law Dara, we knew we had to create our ultimate fantasy elopement that in our dream world, we would create for ourselves! The ideas started flowing and within days Lindsey and I had created mood boards, reached out and solidified vendors and putting our grand plan into motion! “

The day of the shoot began with dark and rainy skies…perhaps not ideal for a real wedding, cos who likes soggy socks and frizzy hair…but in fact, it’s the perfect shooting weather for photographers (no direct sunlight and heavy shadows).

The sweetheart table was set up on the back porch of Wildflower Event and Desing’s log cabin, overlooking Stratton Mountain, which was covered in rolling fog throughout the entire morning. The tablescape, created by Wildflower Events and Design, was a mixture of mauves, mustard yellow, blue, blush and purple florals, with high purple pillar candles, the most beautiful linens from Silk and Willow and hand painted menus by Louelle Studios.

“We had to constantly run the full tablescape in and out of the rain as it became heavier and then slowed down. We even had some of the girls standing over Jess and Andrew as we were taking photos of them just so they didn’t get too wet!”

The team drove an hour north to Kelsey & Liam’s favourite waterfall, Thundering Falls, a mountainside waterfall tucked deep into the woods on the Appalachian Trail. With 100 pounds of flowers in tow, the team grabbed a bucket of florals and started their trek down the half a mile long boardwalk that lead to the waterfall base. Hannah, the florist, built the most insane floral/moss garden that climbed up the side of the mountain overlooking the falls.

To end the most magical day, the team made their way to the top of an unmarked scenic overlook in the Green Mountains to create the most snuggly cuddle session ever, including cake and champagne!

“We got to the top and with about 45 minutes of sunlight left and we rallied together in the rain to bang out the most magical scene, with Wildflower creating and bringing the tepee vision to life and Hannah from Hudson Botanica building vines of flowers up the side of the tepee as the sun was setting fast behind us.”

As with all shoots, and real weddings, the project was a challenge. Especially as the locations were all around 40 miles apart from each other. And finding vendors with a shared vision and love for the aesthetic was of course, a challenge in itself. But, as Kelsey explains…

“The instant connection and bond that was created by eleven strangers in a matter of minutes was something that I will forever carry with me through my adulthood and career – everyone was creatively vulnerable and worked effortlessly, having never met before everyone came together to cultivate a vision that we had only dreamed of! With our kick ass team of boss babes and Liam of course, we created a magical fairytale scene that blew our vision out of the water!”

Well, team, you completely blew our minds! Hats off to such a stellar team:

Rustic Vibes, Chickens & Cows, in Beautiful BC

Wild and romantic styled shoot from Vancouver Island, BC, shot by Myrtle and Moss.

We are super excited today, not only because its launch day, but we able to finally show you this picture perfect, rural shoot set in the most beautiful location in Canada.

Kimberley Solecki, from Borrowed and Blue Events, submitted this beautiful shoot in response to our first callout on Instagram. A wedding planner from Vancouver Island, BC, Kimberley is a self confessed planning fanatic, which is obviously why this styled wedding inspiration, shot by Myrtle and Moss, is just everything.

Comprising a stellar team of creatives and the most perfect models, the concept was realised at Birds Eye Cove Barn; a hand-cut timber frame facility which nestles into the grassy fields of the 300 acre property. Leaving the colour palette neutral, the styling, fashion and the surroundings speak for themselves. Even the farmlife matched the colour scheme perfectly…scroll down for highland cows and chickens galore!

It’s super hard to not love all this beautiful wedding inspiration…we particularly love the flowers by Bespoke Blossoms, the macrame on the tablescape and the beautiful Pronovias gown (loaned from Blush Bridal) worn by Jilliann, the bridal model. And who could forget, the chickens…!
