The Runaways…

All the feels for Arizona, Route 66 and The Killers, in the middle of the Essex countryside.

We have an awesome shoot for you today, inspired by The Killers, Route 66 and Arizona…quite literally some of our favourite things! The colours, the detail and the models are all just completely stunning…and definitely bring a gorgeous tribute to the Arizona desert to Essex, UK.

Caroline, the photographer, explains her reasoning behind the shoot, and why it was important to utilise the references she did…

“A few years ago, driving through the Arizona desert on Route 66, a shoot idea began to form in my head. It was largely inspired by The Killer’s song ‘Runaways’: I pictured newly-weds driving out into the sunset across the desert, ready to start a new adventure together. I’ve always loved tribal and native American influences and these drove the style for the shoot. I really wanted to create a feeling of an exciting, nomadic fresh start and a couple ready for their next free spirited adventure.” Caroline

The Venue

Caroline held the shoot at the Barns at Lodge Farm; a venue local to her in the Essex countryside. It’s rare you find somewhere local,  sustainable and so beautiful with all the rustic vibes and an awesome blank canvas to create exactly what you want…

“Obviously being in the UK and not the desert, we drew in some english influences from the location. With the combination of rustic barns, industrial style grain stores and hay stacks, Lodge Farm kept the original influences while adding an interesting range of backdrops.” Caroline

Amy from Anthology Vintage Hire did an incredible job of bringing Caroline’s ideas to life. She sourced an amazing collection of tribal soft furnishings, a low dining table setup and beautiful ceremony area with a wooden arch and peacock chairs. Vanderhume and Bohotanical also added some finishing touches, such as the handmade hanging on the arch (Vanderhume) and a huge macrame hanging as a backdrop (Bohotanical).

Flowers

“For this shoot I really wanted to use sustainable suppliers and Bohotanical was the perfect choice. With her range of faux flowers we could create the perfect florals whilst not needing any new stock. We opted for dried flowers and pampas to add interesting texture. Pampas are so versatile and blended in with the colour palette in such a beautiful way.” Caroline

Models & Hair/Makeup

Caroline had worked with Katie before and knew her look would be perfect for this shoot. Katie brought along her friend Claire to shoot with.

“I absolutely love when friends model together as it means you get real connection and joy in the photos. I am in love with the fierce, feminist vibes from our models.” Caroline

Lauren Siddons was on hand for hair & makeup – she was so enthusiastic about the shoot and came up with super creative looks for both the models. We absolutely adore the way she styled Claire’s hair with braids and hoops – it looks so fierce and unique. For Katie, Lauren opted for dark, smoky makeup to work alongside her hat and accessories, whereas Claire’s was a more subtle look to go with her eye catching hair and large earrings by Vanderhume.

Aneberry Bridal provided two incredible dresses for this shoot. Caroline opted for two different styles: Claire wore an effortless and elegant dress with a short train, while Katie wore a bohemian lace dress. We love the slit at the front and little lace details around the shoulders and chest.

Finishing Touches

Wonderland Invites was Caroline’s only choice for this shoot. Jenna created a bespoke suite of stationery with a rusty colour palette, tassels, dreamcatchers and tribal skulls, perfectly in keeping with the tone of the day.

Keeping with the sustainable requirements, Cakes and Leaves provided a vegan three tier lemon and poppy seed cake which went down a treat with the team! We absolutely love the shots at the dining area cutting in to the cake – it’s a rarity to see.

Caroline stumbled across Denim & Bone on Instagram a few months ago and approached the team there straight away about featuring a jacket. Inspired by her travels, Denim & Bone’s jackets stand out as boho treasures evoking a wild and fearless feeling. Her ‘Formally Wild’ leather sat so beautifully with the overall vibe of the shoot and complimented the other bridal accessories wonderfully.

The Car

The whole premise of this shoot centered on a road trip. To add the English flare, Buttercup Bus took part with beautiful Pushka the Camper! The 1972 babe was the perfect colour fit and totally brought the adventurous and nomadic side to the concept.

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!

Field of Dreams Bridal Inspiration

Floaty, natural bridal inspiration with beautiful earthy tones.

Not every outdoor wedding has to be bohemian…it can, of course err to the more elegant side; which is what we love about this beautifully free-flowing shoot with classic, chic nods and beautiful floristry.

With a peach, gold and white colour palette, the shoot played to the neutral surroundings by adding beautiful pops of colour…bang on trend with this years Pantone colour of the year too!

Sweet Love at Maple Bay Manor

Love is in the air…yes, it’s Valentines Day, but this shoot has not a cliche in sight!

Love is officially in the air…yes, it’s Valentines Day. And whether you’re celebrating Valentines, Galentines or Palentines this year, we have a straight up, ‘classy with a twist’ love-fest to share with you today. Think bold reds and rich, sickly sweet desserts. Think hearts and roses but not as you know them…

Submitted by awesome planner Kim of Borrowed & Blue Events, this wonderfully emotive shoot held at Maple Bay Manor in Canada is giving us all the feels of the loving season.

“We wanted to create a Valentine’s based shoot that was different; something romantic but boasted elegance. We decided to go for a deeper red mood board with soft touches which I think helped create something unique. The dress used is a locally custom made dress along side the jewellery which is also locally and custom made by Emma Glover Designs” Kim

I think thats the tough thing about Valentines…i.e. not creating something which is totally and utterly cliche, or has been done before. This team brought a vision to the table, and executed every inch of the shoot with respect and finesse, which means the overall tone looks and feels very mature, elegant and refined, rather than garish, in-your-face Valentines day.

From the textual bouquet, featuring anthurium and amaranthus, to the cake and desserts which included gentle nods to the shoot theme, the finer details of this beautiful shoot really help to create a story and a build up to seeing the models appear.

“The biggest challenge for this shoot was gathering our vendors so close after Christmas had ended. We actually changed the date to push it later in the month of January to accommodate how busy everyone has been. “ Kim

The bridal look focuses on elegance and pure, simple beauty; natural makeup with pops of browns to complement the brides lovely complexion, and a relaxed yet structured hair style dotted with pretty little red roses to finish.

The groom, looking smart in his dark grey suit and pale grey tie, added a pop of colour with his boutonniere; while simple, included nods to the stunning bridal bouquet, with hits of red and green.

The real standout of the shoot was the striking foliage filled heart arch…masterfully built with long, trailing ends, under which the couple exchanged rings and spoke their vows. Set against a stunning view for a backdrop, the couple in their beautiful attire were romantically framed by the unique heart arch concept…a total winner in our minds.

“The arch absolutely surpassed all expectations I had. Taylor, the photographer had approached me about doing a Valentines based shoot and had sent me over an image of this heart shaped arch. I showed it to my husband who decided he could make it out of rebar and Calvin at Pacific Coast Metal Craft could weld it together for us. When he brought it home I was blown away, but once we set it on the dock at Maple Bay Manor and Annise from Bespoke Blossoms added the greenery it was easily the strongest and most original part of our shoot” Kim

Hats off to an incredible team, who managed to create such a perfect and tasteful ode to Valentines Day.

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.

Camylla+JordanShoot-34

Camylla+JordanShoot-47

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.

Real Wedding: Rebecca & Michael

Don’t let this summer wedding fool you, it’s full of festive vibes…

It might be a summer wedding we’re showcasing today but there are so many beautiful festive vibes at work here…from the beautiful berry purple of the bridesmaid dresses to the stunning festoon lighting at the venue.

We love Rebecca Carpenter‘s work, so when she got in touch with Rebecca and Michael’s big day, we literally bit her hand off. Rebecca’s work is so honest and natural; her effervescent personality is intrinsic to how she gets the best out of her couples and we can see just how much of a good time they have working with her. And Rebecca and Michael were no exception….

“They were so warm and friendly from the moment they booked; we kept in touch via e-mail and whatsapp! When I showed up on their day it felt like I was meeting an old friend when I met Rebecca. Her family and bridesmaids were so welcoming, fun and positive to be around.” Rebecca

Rebecca&Michael-74

Rebecca&Michael-55

As you will see from this real wedding, Rebecca is great at capturing both the big picture and the smaller details; from the couples chosen fragrances and stationery, to little details on the wedding breakfast tables. It’s the little things couples often forget, and so this is a really important part of wedding photography.

You may also recognise the Royal Mail ‘something for you’ notecard which went a little Instagram viral when Rebecca posted it onto her grid. Like we said…it’s the little details that make a wedding day truly complete.

Rebecca&Michael-81

Rebecca&Michael-169

When thinking back to this beautiful real wedding, Rebecca remembers if being one that really stuck out for her in 2018…

“I know this sounds like a cliche but the whole day was just a photographers dream. I loved it all. The weather was incredible, the bride and groom were madly in love, their little girl Bluebell was present, they had the most stunning flowers, there were the beautiful and hilarious bridesmaids, and of course, there was the loveliest church ceremony.” Rebecca

Rebecca&Michael-291

Rebecca&Michael-472

Rebecca&Michael-515

Rebecca&Michael-527

This couple really did cover all bases with their wedding planning…every aspect of their day was detailed and tailored to their life and their loves…from food and drink, to decor and even the games that they played during the wedding breakfast…

“Rebecca and Michael thought of everything – The Mr and Mrs Game led by the Bride’s brother was created so that all the guests were involved and were able to interact. There were details the bride and groom really thought hard about, such as the strawberries and cream stand, pimp your processco stand, a harpist and a fabulous cheese tower.” Rebecca

We love the table plan…a whimsical fairytale/literary plethora of the couples favourite stories, and each table was themed around the table plan. We also love all the little details around the barn venue, from the festoon lighting, the little paper lanterns and the photo wall showcasing the couples time together.

Rebecca&Michael-557

Rebecca&Michael-665

Rebecca&Michael-622

When it came to photography, Rebecca had a blast with the couple and their guests.

“I had so many ideas for photographs that day and sometimes you do get resistance from people. However, Rebecca and Michael, her bridesmaids and the wedding guests in general were down for anything and everything! From setting off confetti canons during bridal prep, to jumping fences and going into a field for celebratory photos are some of my favourite moments of that day.” Rebecca

Rebecca&Michael-719

Rebecca&Michael-782

Rebecca&Michael-922

Rebecca&Michael-1023

When it came to challenges on the day, Rebecca explained that the curse of the sharp sunlight struck…every photographers nightmare…

“I think the biggest challenge that day was that the sun was scorching which never really makes for the best photos. Eyes squinting and harsh shadows never make for the prettiest of photos, so I decided to hold off doing the couple portraits until later in the day when the light had settled. It was a bit of a gamble when a wedding is busy and flowing, but I explained to the couple that for the best results we wait until then and I’m so glad they trusted me!” Rebecca

And so are we, because the couple shots and celebratory bridesmaid/bridal portraits are just to die for! Well done Rebecca, and huge congrats to the beautiful Rebecca and Michael.

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…

Real Wedding: Kasia & Kuba

Shot by Daniela Nizzoli in the hills of Tuscany, Kasia and Kuba’s wedding shows their love for one another.

Receiving this beautiful, tranquil real wedding in our inbox was an absolute honour. It shows the beauty in simplicity. The wonder in the little details; which don’t have to match, and don’t have to be expensive. This wedding completely encompasses the notion of doing what suits you, when it comes to your big day.

Shot by Daniela Nizzoli in the rolling hills of Tuscany, Kasia and Kuba are the most relaxed and natural couple; full of love for one another. Their wedding was a small affair, with close family and friends, which fostered a real calming vibe…

“Photographing for me is like giving people a little bit of them that they can not see from their eyes, but that needs an external point of view. I always try to get to the soul of my clients in order to establish a connection.” Daniela

Daniela’s passion for shooting real couples is beautifully illustrated in Kasia and Kuba’s wedding photos. It is super important for Daniela to form a bond with her couples in order to get the best possible shots from their wedding…

“First of all I make sure they feel themselves in front of the camera without perceiving my presence around as intrusive. I asked them to hug and enjoy the moment of intimacy without the other guests. After a few minutes I managed to make myself invisible.”

Kasia looks like a mediterranean goddess in her simple, flowing white gown, with sun kissed skin and beautiful gold sandals; both pretty and practical. Her bridal look was finished with a lavender and wildflower bouquet and gypsophila/olive leave hair crown. Kuba kept it simple with a bowtie and braces, and a dapper chequered jacket. 

The church ceremony carried the wildflower theme, with sprigs of beautifully foraged flowers decorating the aisle. And we love the pretty gold confetti cannons released by two of the groomsmen!

“There was an atmosphere of joy, of tranquility and it allowed me to give the best of myself. The biggest challenge was not to fall into banality; instead, I tried to create a story giving value to the details that were inspired by nature” Daniela

Daniela led the couple out into open hills for their couples portraits. With a beautiful view ahead of them and perfect weather, the three worked together to create some beautiful, honest magic; showcasing the simple elegance of the couple and the beauty of the natural surroundings.

“For me, love is laughs, complicity, it’s the heat in a hug when you’ve had a bad day, it’s being able to be yourself with someone without being afraid of judgments” Daniela

Atop Black Balsam

Bridal shoot set atop Black Balsam, giving Wuthering Heights vibes for bride Kayla.

When I saw a couple of the images from this shoot on Instagram, I knew I had to reach out to the photographer, Alli, to feature them. They gave me a real Wuthering Heights moment, and since I grew up close to the moors that the Bronte’s wrote about in their books, this visually stunning shoot just had to grace Wed in The Wild. 

Shot in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains that border North and South Carolina the landscape is wild and natural, aside from the gravel footpath and the winding road in the distance which brought the team to their chosen location.

Alli’s love for nature is clear; her shots go beyond solely capturing the lovely model, Kayla, and capture the beauty of the landscape too.

“I had to stop and take in how beautiful the whole scenario was. The mountains. A gorgeous bride. The wind bringing life to all around it. The evergreens that give me the green I oh, so love for my pictures. Everything was just perfect.”

With a simple bridal look, Kayla fits the essence of a natural, relaxed bride. We love understated styling here at Wed in The Wild, and the free flowing hair, natural makeup and simple flowers captivate against the stunning backdrop of Black Balsam point.

The dress, from Lulu’s only adds to the romanticism and the connotations of 18th century literature…with a flowing skirt, sweet ribbons, intrinsic lace sleeves and a beautiful belt. The open back thoroughly modernises the whole look.

As with most outdoor shoots, set atop a mountain, the weather was a bit of an obstacle.

“It was absolutely freezing cold to the point to where I couldn’t feel my hands as I snapped each shot. The wind didn’t help either as it hit us with all of its might that it had that day. The hike is difficult, especially for someone in a dress, because some of the rocks are nearly a climb straight upward. We were hoping that it would be sunny for golden hour, but the cloud coverage was too thick.”

But with shots like this…how can you really be disappointed! While the wind was one of the challenges, each image has so much personality; each bluster giving life to the dress and to the models hair.

Real Wedding: Kelly & Erik

The attention to detail and raw emotion at this perfect destination wedding will be sure to capture your heart.

Wow. Just wow. That was our first reaction to seeing this beautiful real wedding shot by Anna Hayes of Hazography. Set in Roatan, Honduras, amongst palm fronds, birds of paradise and a whole lotta love, the attention to detail and raw emotion at this perfect destination wedding will be sure to capture your heart.

Anna explains more…

“I never met Kelly and Erik in person until I flew to Honduras for their wedding. This was my first destination wedding so I was totally nervous that it was too good to be true – that they were too good to be true. Then I met them and we were instant friends. They invited my boyfriend and I to their welcome BBQ and we all went out for drinks afterwards. It was a freakin’ blast. The whole weekend we were treated like family. If all my clients could be like that, I would be in photographer heaven.”

“The love. It was all there. Everyone in the bridal party was so stoked to be there. They helped the bride with everything. Hell, they helped me with everything – including removing a closet door to get sweet photos with it. The bride is 100% fluent in Spanish as it is her second language, but in the midst of the wedding day rush, she had ‘bride brain’ so she just could not find the words! So, her girls took up the slack and helped her communicate with the vendors. It was such a show of love.”

Anna describes how the day went swimmingly for the most part…there weren’t any photography challenges in terms of lighting, posing or otherwise. However, she did experience one of the most heart-stopping moments we think a photographer could ever experience! Whilst she was backing up some of her SD cards, her case slipped out of her pocket!

“All the SD cards scattered on the slotted deck flooring! The groom was right there freaking out along side of me. Luckily, none of the cards slipped through the cracks, but Erik was ready to take a drill to the floor if need be”

Could you imagine having to engage in a little light DIY on your wedding day!

Anna’s advice…put a rubber band around your SD case so it doesn’t click open on accident!

Kelly, Erik and Anna took a walk into the Honduran jungle for some beautiful, jaw dropping couple shots. Despite the blaring heat and after being eaten alive by mosquitos, Erik took Kelly’s hand and said “we have jungle photos, baby”. I mean, total goals right there.

Each wedding you work on as a supplier has it’s challenges and it’s lessons, and Kelly and Erik’s wedding was no different for Anna..

“I learned what to look for in an ideal couple. In the creative world, we are always painting this picture of our “ideal couple”. Who would they be? What would they do? How would they act? Well, I managed to find them on my first destination wedding. Kelly and Erik treated me in the absolute best ways and I am so grateful they chose me to capture their wedding”

We’re so glad they chose you Anna, and so glad you chose Wed in The Wild to showcase such a beautiful day!
