Bohotanical: Angelic, Boho Vibes

A stunning, fresh faced model, an Areca palm intertwined bouquet, and a Polynesian inspired flower crown.

When we received this shoot, we legit thought that it was set in woodlands somewhere way more tropical than Wakefield. Yes, you heard us correctly. Wakefield.

We don’t know if it’s the models stunning, fresh face, the Areca palm leaves intertwined into the lush green bouquet, or the flower crown which reminds us of an abundant Polynesian headdress. But this shoot is just stone-cold, drop-dead gorgeous, and could easily have been shot on a Hawaiian island. Thats just the magic of this talented creative team.

Shot by Hannah of Anna Beth Photography, the vision for the shoot was to showcase a more carefree, boho vibe for bride, Savannah. Traditional went out the window for the dress and the team opted for an incredibly light and flowing dress from Jan Si Fashion.

Perfectly fitting, we’d say. The lightness of the fabric is a beautiful juxtaposition to the forest floor and roughage of the grasses. We are loving the v neckline and the peeking bikini element…something we’ve never seen before, and is absolutely perfect for a destination wedding somewhere warm.

The team agreed on an all-green bouquet and flower crown, to match the surroundings of the woodland. Hannah was keen for Savannah to look at one in the wild! We love the use of greenery to make the bridal look pop and the mixture of ferns, palms and other greenery is really striking.

The invites, created by Ever After Paperie, utilised hand torn black card with gorgeous, luxurious gold calligraphy, wax seals with a foliage design and hand torn silks in a beautiful shade of grey.

Hair and make up was kept natural but sleek for an editorial edge. Hannah explains that despite their model being carefree, wild and free-spirited, the team wanted her to look like a stunning goddess in the woodland. And she does, completely.

Hannah explains that the shoot went off without a hitch, with the only challenge being the huge spiders webs in the forest; avoiding those was a bit of a hurdle! But, all the spider-dodging was worth it for the beautiful golden hour light which came streaming through the huge pine trees at the end of the day.

Moody Bohemia at Manchester Park

This modern, bohemian take on bridal styling is both achingly beautiful and heartwarmingly cosy.

If you are feeling the change in the weather and are reaching for another sip of that pumpkin spice latte whilst secretly jamming to Christmas tunes (its never too early right?), then this warming, deep-toned shoot will be right up your alley.

Featuring some incredible talent, including Marnie Cornell, Grace Loves Lace and one of our faves, Rock & Stone Weddings, this modern, bohemian take on bridal styling is both achingly beautiful and heartwarmingly cosy.

Amber, from Rock & Stone, explains that the team wanted to create an ethereal and organic bohemian vibe, amidst the cold, grey Washington winter earlier this year.

The venue, Manchester Park, is famous for it’s red brick building: a former torpedo warehouse, with windowless arches and a weathered beamed ceiling. Along with the gorgeous stone fireplace, the venue has become a coveted wedding spot. The mood board was full of earthy and natural textures and deep reds and browns, and wouldn’t you agree the team hit the nail on the head! We’re loving the deep reds of the flowers, interspersed with cotton heads and feathers for a wonderful bohemian vibe.

With stunning macrame and silks, oodles of candles and just the right amount of styling to retain an effortless air, the tablescape with added cake by Sift & Gather is easily one of our favourite aspect of the teams efforts…although the model in a stunning Grace Loves Lace gown comes in a close second; perfectly primped and preened by mega babes Pacific Brides.

And would you look at that gorgeous stationery by the super talented Ink & Sable…we’re loving how the powdery pink edges tie back to the cake and the napkins. Just perfection!

Amber explains that the shoot had a couple of pressure points…

“The shoot was originally scheduled for February but we had to bring it forward after our stunning model was asked to fly to Milan for fashion week castings right after Christmas! She was leaving the following day so it made it extra special that she got to take farewell photos with her love.”

The bridal look is something we haven’t really seen before, so when Amber sent over the images, we were so excited by them. The turban, by Bridal Turban based in Italy, made for a gorgeous accompaniment to the gown and made a change from all the flower crowns we are used to seeing both as part of shoots and real weddings. Great to see something totally unique!
