Festive Elopement Vibes at Big Bear

Warm your hearts with this Big Bear styled elopement

Merry Christmas Eve! Can you believe it’s Christmas Day tomorrow?! It’s come around so fast. We’re definitely feeling the Christmas spirit here at Wed in The Wild and are really enjoying the abundance of reds, greens and snowy vibes filling our Instagram feeds…

We’re massive fans of texture when it comes to weddings…from styling to multi-textured ensembles for the bridal party. So when Alyssa from AMA Designs got in touch with this styled shoot, we leapt at the chance to publish it.

From the super textural florals and the various macrame dreamcatchers hanging from tree branches, to the bridal ensemble with layers of lace, silk chiffon and fur, this shoot is a beautiful homage to the festive period set in the mountain forests of Big Bear, California.

The flowing red skirt of the bridal gown is light and airy, and we love the vibrancy of the colour juxtaposed against the natural tones for the forest. It really sets the tone for the shoot, with the florals and the macrame working in perfect unison with the garment.

With her hair up in an elegant bun decorated with festive foliage and florals, the bridal model’s face was kept fresh and natural, with a gorgeous pop of colour on the lip.

We’re completely digging the macrame hangings; huge fans anyway, we love the colours that have been utilised, as we’re so used to seeing the fabric in it’s natural tones. Used as a frame to stage shots, it’s great to see macrame being utilised as a prop beyond a table runner or a ceremony backdrop.

Sometimes a simple shoot speaks volumes. Sometimes a few props are all you need to really leave an impression. We love how this team in particular have made full use of nature and the surrounding area to really sell the fantasy of a Christmas-themed elopement. Everything just works so beautifully, from the minimal, elegant stationery, to the beautiful fur stole worn by the bride.

To us, it’s Christmas vibes, nailed.

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…

A Wondrously Wild, Welsh Elopement

An airy take on a boho elopement, join us as we wander through the Ogwen Valley and up Mount Tryfan…

A billion times thrilled to be sharing this beautiful, light and graceful shoot with you. An airy take on a boho elopement, join us as we wander through the Ogwen Valley and up Mount Tryfan on a delicately wild adventure…

Submitted by photographer Laura-Jane Bennett, and featuring some top notch suppliers including Anthology Vintage Hire and Poppy’s Perspective, the styling and aesthetic is a welcome break from the darker edits we typically see for bohemian weddings and shoots.

Laura-Jane takes us on the teams journey, climbing up the Welsh mountains…

“Following hair and makeup, our first location led us climbing over cattle grids and walking down the side of Lake Ogwen; we had to shoot back towards the road because of the suns positioning in the sky. With the water slightly to our side and the sun bouncing off it, everything looked calm & blissful; the setting was complete with the mountains behind our models.” Laura-Jane

The teams first big challenge was to find suitable models for the shoot. The female had to be a size 8 to fit the dresses and had to have long flowing hair which could be curled into a bouncy boho style.

Laura-Jane tried online model agencies and local models, however the journey was either too far for them to travel, or the price was too expensive for the team to hire. However, their luck changed when Lily & Adam, a couple who were recently engaged, were happy to take the drive to Wales for the shoot.

The fist location for the shoot included some really beautiful, quaint landmarks which the team totally took advantage of, including a small, natural mound the ‘vows’ were shot on, and a rustic metal hay dispenser which Laura-Jane had the models kick about and throw each other around in.

“The idea of the shoot was to show a wild elopement having fun and being adventurous. We just had to make the most of our surroundings.” Laura-Jane

The team tackled a climb up Mount Tryfan to get more of a view of the scene below. The mountain was no easy climb, but eventually evened out slightly with a beautiful mini waterfall and rock pool areas for the team to pose the models in and around. The lake, the mountain edge, the views and the soft marsh-type grass which covered the ground were perfect for the scenes the team were hoping for.

Not being from the area and having a good 5 hours to get there, the team were concerned about the models turning up; Laura-Jane and Helen had only ever conversed with them over the phone. Luckily, Lily & Adam were both really excited to be involved with the shoot and turned up on time for hair and make up before everyone set off to the chosen locations.

Another worry for Laura-Jane was the weather. Wales isnt particularly well-known for being bright and sunny, and being Springtime, she did panic about there being a downpour. However, as you can see from the beautiful images, they got so lucky, with beautiful clear skies and sunshine!

“We had beautiful sunshine, albeit maybe a tad too bright, but with the sun eventually setting, the shoot went perfectly for us!” Laura-Jane

We absolutely love the juxtaposition of the elegant dresses with the fedora and shearling jackets utilised in the latter part of the shoot. It completely modernises the look and brings a whole new personality to the overall tone.

The final set of images, set high on Mount Tryfan are a beautiful, dreamy combination of fine art photography and rugged, wild vibes…especially with the bridal models cowboy boots peeking through the cloud-like material of the dress.

Laura-Jane’s favourite aspect of the shoot was that it was set somewhere completely different compared to her local area.

“It was inspiring, as there is nowhere similar to Wales in Essex…so to be so high up in the mountains overlooking beautiful scenery, and shooting something we had pulled together in a couple of weeks was just amazing and so exciting!” Laura-Jane

Indeed, whilst it may look simple, so much planning goes into a styled shoot…not least bringing together a team of suppliers who in some instances, don’t know each other or you may not have worked with before. Everything is a gamble. But by and large, and definitely in this instance, the gambles and hard work pay off!

The Waterfall

The wind may howl and the rain may pour, but my love for you will remain as constant as a waterfall…

“By night, by day, when it shines or lours, there lies intact that chalice of ours. And its presence adds to the rhyme of love, persistently sung by the fall above. No lip has touched it since his and mine, in turn therefrom sipped lovers’ wine.” Under The Waterfall, Thomas Hardy

Today’s shoot is a beauty. Forged in beautiful, wondrous nature, it tells the tale of two lovers in the forest and of the tumbling, rippling waters of Henrhyd Falls in Wales. With exquisite foraged greenery and striking flowers, a carefree bridal look and beautiful rustic styling, we hope you fall in love just as we have…

Shot by Jessica Hill, the team hiked for hours to the falls, lugging their kit with them…including the huge wooden door which Laura from The Rustic Dresser built her striking, abundant tablescape on. It had been and was still raining, as the team made their way through trails littered with mud and loose rocks, amongst the ferns and trees of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The models, both natural and undisturbed in their styling, shook off their shoes and braved the river and the waterfall. HMUA, Heather Alexandra, kept the bridal look simple with flowing tresses and a dewy, pared back face. The dress, from The Bridal Lounge was returned with mud on the train…a reminder of the journey the team took that day.

Don’t worry…the mud came out.

The creative team, led by Laura and Jess, contributed some beautiful pieces for the styling of the shoot. Tessa, of The Little Flower Co, utilised gorgeous trailing greenery in both the abundant bouquet and table centrepiece, with pops of colour from roses, protea and delphiniums.

The stationery, provided by Wonderland Invites paid homage to the forests with pops of greens, with pale peaches, greys and nods of blue and white. To finish, the cake by Zaza Marcelle was a standout feature in a striking blue which juxtaposed effortlessly against the green of the woodlands. Laura’s styling was perfection, with flowing silks dipping into the waters edge and gorgeous peach and blue tableware, working effortlessly with the florals and stationery.

The whole shoot conjures up romanticism. If Thomas Hardy was still here today, we could be sure he was writing about this loved up couple beneath The Waterfall.

Bohemian Mermaid Beach Vibes

Bohemian mermaid beach vibes on the Oregan Coast, with an intimate proposal.

Do you know when something just gives you the feels? You know; the warm and fuzzies, the butterflies in your tum, that pure excitement that makes you want to beam from ear to ear…well, thats how I felt when the wonderful Cindy of Peachy Keen Coordination got in touch with this gorgeous, beachy shoot which gave me ALL the mermaid vibes.

Captured by Amanda Jay Photography in partnership with Jordan & Khrystina Films, the team wanted to collaborate on something capturing the love of a couple so deeply in love that all their needed was them and the Oregon Coast. Brave enough to brace and withstand the weather, the team wanted to bring forward a bit of playfulness and lose the traditional nautical vibes, and instead bring forward a generous amount of colour which you will see in the florals and in the crystal cake crafted  by Next Door Desserts.

“We were also totally enamored by a beach picnic complete with eclectic pieces from Vintage Meets Modern and adorable signage from Letters & Dust encouraging guests to remove their shoes and enjoy the sand between their feet!” Cindy

With two bridal beauty looks pulled together by Kristen Nicole and Romantic Tresses and two opposing fashions, the team wanted to convey the notion that although you may stand side by side in dresses, you can each still have your own unique characteristics for your desired appearance on your wedding day. We LOVE the dresses by Merrime Bride & Soiree and Rent The Runway; both allowing each bride to stay true to their personal style.

Both brides wore beautiful custom created footwear by Brenna Burnett Florals and Pretty Knotted Things, and both brides wore bespoke jewellery provided by Metal & Pebble Jewelry Co. The beautiful forest backdrop was complemented by macrame custom created by Pretty Knotted Things.

Cindy explains that the most unexpected thing happened during shooting, and it was one that moved all of the suppliers in that moment…

“One of our model brides proposed a domestic partnership during the photoshoot. The pause in the modelling vs authentic engagement between the two was very endearing and a special moment for all present.”

How amazing to have bore witness to such a gorgeous, personal moment!

Whilst the photos show an incredible, clear day, shooting wasn’t as easy as it looked. In March, the Oregon coast is really windy, and the day of shooting was particularly chilly. However, Mother Nature was forgiving and allowed the team some beautiful sun, and they could not completely race away from the incoming tide!

“Like true wedding days, you learn how to be creative and think on your feet. Since we had access to a beautiful beach cabin (where the models also got ready) we decided as a team that it was best to relocate as to not watch our beautiful pieces be taken by the ocean.”

Dark & Stormy Feels in Brighton

Dark and stormy shoot, with a touch of sleek glamour; a different take on the bohemian trend

A different vibe for todays styled shoot…dark and stormy with a touch of sleek glamour, whilst still embracing some of the hallmarks of the bohemian trend; beautiful, abundant florals, gorgeous styling and oodles of special little touches.

Led by Emily Dall, a florist based in the UK, the shoot took place at the moody, emotive pub, The Pond in Brighton and incorporated a stellar lineup including the uber talented Bunston Bakes and Wed in The Wild favourites, Lo & Behold Bespoke.  We absolutely LOVE it!

Emily explains more…

“Our Dark & Stormy shoot is the achingly beautiful bohemian marriage of darkness with romance. A love which almost certainly began on a brooding autumn day and which is so overpowering that you could describe yourself as ‘utterly intoxicated’ with your partner.”

ThePond-57

ThePond-39

ThePond-48

ThePond-75

Emily chose the rich colours of teal & burgundy to offer alternative autumnal hues and provide a contrast with both the fluttering candlelight & the stunning ivory Ossie Clark-inspired dress.

” As an autumn lover, I have always adored a brooding, dark colour palette and I thrive on cinematic styling & drama. As a result, I would say there was certainly a subtle combination of inspiration from the album The Bride by Bat for Lashes, my lifelong love of Wuthering Heights (the ultimate moody & windswept romance on the moors!) and the Instagram feed of Susie Bick, Nick Cave’s wife.

Shooting an autumnal wedding in June wasn’t not easy but the team were ‘blessed’ with a moody weather forecast on the day which was ideal…no sunlight pouring through the windows to pull the tone away from the mood the team wanted to portray.

ThePond-79

ThePond-25

As always, we love to ask about the submitter about their favourite aspect of the shoots and for Emily, it was a hard choice (and we can see why).

“The tablescape came together just as I hoped it would, with the huge peonies & wild roses perfectly interlacing the elegantly ornate brass candlesticks, but when Ami from Lo & Behold hung the hand-painted banner on the wall behind it was just the cherry on top! Receiving those images back from Paloma made my heart sing. Also, if I may mention one other aspect, Arabella went to the trouble of mixing a bespoke lip colour on the day of the shoot to match the rich burgundy colour of the peonies. This attention to detail is everything I adore in wedding design & styling.”

Lulworth Cove: A Wild Bride

Stunning, wild shoot on the clifftops of Lulworth Cove. Shearling coat and boots prevail…

When this delicious shoot landed in our inbox, we knew we had to share it with the world. It’s wild, romantic and, well…wild some more! From the flowing dresses, to the abundant flowers, the whole shoot is a perfect juxtaposition between the rugged landscape and the soft, romanticism of the bridal styling. And when something is shot so authentically, it’s hard not to fall in love hard. We could feel the emotion behind the camera and photographer, Elena Popa, tells us more…

“Dorset – and in particular Lulworth cove and the Jurassic Coast – has for a long while held a special place in my heart. Many happy memories stem from this corner of the world, not to mention I am a total sucker for a dramatic coastline, so naturally the day arrived when I decided I just had to shoot there. I’d already sourced a couple of dresses should the occasion arise – and I wanted to keep it quick and simple, so I contacted wonderful model Holly Drinkwater and super talented flower queen Elspeth Louise Flowers who were kind enough to say yes to this adventure.”

Elena’s concept incorporated both her love for the location and her desire for adventurous weddings and elopements to become more of a thing in the UK.

“There’s nothing quite like tying the knot in the midst of an epic landscape like this and I wish UK laws could accommodate this for those who wish to marry in the wild.”

Elena chose two dresses in completely different styles. One, a simple white wrap dress from Asos – the neckline and sleeve combination being incredibly flattering. The other dress was the ethereal dusty pink Supernova gown from Needle and Thread. The look was complemented with a boho white tassel throw, brown shearling jacket and boots.

We are complete suckers for abundant bouquets, and Elena is of the same mind…

“Oversize bouquets are the way to go and Elspeth truly outdid herself with this one – all the while using flowers that were still in season. I absolutely love the flower crown she created, in keeping with the autumnal vibes I was trying to incorporate in the shoot.”

Of course, the biggest concern with the shoot was the unpredictable British weather; but Elena explains that Holly (the model) was such a trooper during the shoot! The wind was fierce but the team spent a good couple of hours shooting on the breathtaking clifftops surrounding Lulworth Cove, before returning to their cars for warmth. The flowers held together remarkably well in the windy conditions too – Elspeth, the florist, must have put them together with magic!

We asked Elena, what her favourite aspect of the shoot was…

‘The simplicity of it – not having to worry about a huge production – and the way all the elements came together to provide the dramatic aesthetic I was striving for”

And we completely agree Elena…you and your team smashed it!

Real Wedding: Madison & Austin

Woodland vibes for this real wedding, featuring some really cool details and a wonderfully loved up couple!

All the feels for the sweetest couple on the blog this evening. Madison and Austin’s wedding features so many pretty little details, and was shot by the lovely and equally talented Brynna of Three Birds Photography

The couple had the most perfect, intimate wedding surrounded by close friends and family. When Madison contacted Brynna about photographing her wedding, she told her of her plans for a small backyard wedding. She also expressed an interest in wanting to shoot images of just her and Austin at a separate location in the woods. For Brynna, it was the perfect brief…

IMG_0480

IMG_0688

Brynna explains more…

“Madison and Austin have such a loving and warm connection that shows in every picture. I loved every detail of their day! Madison’s dress, the flower details in her hair, the groom’s entire outfit, the flowers by Centre Floral – all of it. The most unique and beautiful part about the day was Madison’s tattoo of the moon phase of their wedding night. Their fun and relaxed personality made the day and the photographing experience so amazing and special. Madison and Austin’s day still inspires me when planning sessions and photographing other couples to this day – a wedding I’ll always treasure!”

IMG_0523-2

IMG_0649

Brynna has actually known Madison since they were children, having grown up in the same county, but were never friends. However, Madison began following Brynna when she began her photography venture, and they began to form a bond. She shot their engagement photos in downtown Nacogdoches, TX in different abandoned spots. Madison’s unique personality really clicked with Brynna’s style and every detail of their wedding really spoke to her.

Match made in heaven, it sounds like!

IMG_0613

IMG_0682

IMG_0785

The wedding took place in Madison’s aunts backyard. It was a very short ceremony and Brynna and the couple left right after to take pictures in Sabine National Forest. When the pictures were taken, the wedding party convened in an old community house for the reception, where the food and decorations were made by family and friends. All so simple, but oh so perfect.

Brynna recalls that she “learned that it is better to just do what you want on your wedding day, because it is in fact YOUR day! Madison and Austin did exactly what they wanted, pictures, decorations, and all and it was perfect.”

IMG_0757

Question: Brynna, what does love mean to you?

“Love means being completely authentic and 100% yourself with your partner. Raw honesty is love. Acceptance of faults and flaws is love. Quality time is love. You don’t need expensive dates, cards, and money to show your love. You just need each other. Time spent watching a movie together, making cookies together, dancing to “your” song, or just being beside each other, not even having to say a word. Any day spent together.  That’s love to me.”

IMG_0814

IMG_0864

Brynna provides photography in a style which shows authenticity and joy. She is East Texas based but is willing to travel both within the US and overseas, and she loves to shoot weddings, portraits, and lifestyle sessions. Her boyfriend partners with her for weddings as a second shooter and videographer.

 

Our Top Five Boho Wedding Designers

We recommend some of our favourite boho designers; think fringes, tassels and intricate laces.

I think every woman dreams about their wedding day. And of course, dreams evolve and change over the course of time, affected by a number of factors; where we live, who we befriend, places we travel, our careers. But one thing remains prominent in the wedding planning within our minds…the dress.

Arguably, one of the most talked about aspects of any brides day is what they wear to walk down the aisle. A whole concept can be conceived and designed around one garment, so it’s pretty important that the right dress is chosen.

Here at Wed in The Wild, we are suckers for a beautiful dress…we’re certainly not shy about loving an over the top, full-on fringed, embellished, bohemian style wedding dress. And we’re certainly not averse to colour either. We’ve scoured the internet, poured over Instagram and subsequently pined for these beautiful bohemian beauties from the lushest designers out there…

Rue de Seine

The bomb diggy of bohemian dresses; Rue de Seine serves up a veritable platter of full-on boho garms for the most wild and free of brides.

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!

The ceremony arch broke, but the team were able to come up with a plan b…showcasing just how fast a team of quality creatives can resolve an obstacle.

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…!
