Colourful Bohemian Feels

A gorgeous play on the popular boho trend, with beautiful styling and colour pops!

We’re loving the colour pops from todays gorgeous styled inspiration shoot…with wicker furniture galore, bountiful, colourful florals and the most perfect boho tipi, this collaborative effort is bang on trend!

If you are looking for great inspiration for your boho wedding, then this wonderful little story has it all. From the beautiful, abundant floral displays to to the peachy perfect wedding stationery, featuring pretty lined envelopes with hand lettering.

Boho Vibes at Silver Lake Sand Dunes

All the boho feels, a beautiful nude palette, a gorgeous denim jacket…and disco ball for good measure…

Now if you know us, you’ll know that we are suckers for nude vibes, so when these images from Wednesday Photography landed in our inbox, we squealed only a little too loudly. All the boho feels, a beautiful nude palette, a gorgeous denim jacket…and disco ball for good measure…

The celestial nods in this picture perfect shoot are so delicate and inspired – we’re seeing a lot of demand for crystal and lunar decor; it fits so perfectly with bohemian inspired weddings. We love the black macrame the team have utilised here for the ceremony altar, along with the moon decals interwoven into it. So pretty.

Bridal fashion is relaxed and organic, with a beautiful free-flowing gypsy dress, a denim jacket and an on-trend fedora. The groom wore a relaxed fitted shirt and cropped trouser combo, with a darker denim jacket to complement the rest of his attire. I don’t think this couple could get anyyyyy cooler, do you?

Just absolute wild, bohemian perfection! Well done to all involved – credits below!

Real Wedding: Meghan & Eric

We love a mix of classic chicness and rustic country, which is why we love Meghan and Eric’s big day.

Sometimes it’s nice to mix a little bit of classic chicness to a rustic, country wedding. Which is why we love Meghan and Eric’s big day, shot by the ever so talented, Nick Nguyen. Letting their venue, the Brodie Homestead, speak for itself this lovely couple kept things tasteful, laidback and full of emotion for their guests.

Meghan’s BHLDN dress set the tone for her wedding day…light, uncomplicated and completely effortless…much akin to the styling for the remainder of the event. The bridesmaids wore navy to complement the groomsmen, and the flowers were a mixture of lush greenery, white peonies and roses, and white scabiosa heads. Nikk, the photographer, explains more…

“Shooting Meghan and Eric’s wedding at Brodie Homestead was such a great experience for me. The Austin, Texas venue they chose was absolutely adorable! As a renovated barn turned wedding venue it had the perfect combination of rustic and elegance. But the venue wasn’t the best part by a long shot.

Getting the opportunity to work with Meghan and Eric and be a part of capturing their special day was by far my highlight! It’s wonderful people like these two that make it easy to forget you’re actually working. After witnessing their fun and playful interactions with each other you can’t help but feel relaxed and at ease. It was evident how perfect these two were for each other by how they were able to fully be themselves and how being themselves only encouraged the other to do the same.

This truly was an unforgettable experience for me and even though it was super hot, the temperature didn’t slow anyone down for a minute! If you take a look through my blog you’ll see that Meghan and Eric’s special day was a breath-taking day filled with a lot of tears and laughter.” Nikk Nguyen

Warm & Cozy Scandinavian Hygge

We’re love with this heartwarming Hygge inspired shoot!

In love with this heartwarming Hygge inspired shoot, submitted by photographer Brigi of Brigitte & Thierry Photography; perfect for the chilly, rainy spell I’m experiencing in Adelaide at the moment!

Hygge is close to Brigi’s heart which is why the team wanted to create something unique and a little alternative to other trends out there at the moment.

“The inspiration came from Danish pastries, neutral colours and dried flowers. It is not every day that you see various sorts of bakery products, very simple rustic cakes and dried flowers in weddings. The main scope was to provide inspiration to brides and grooms out there who want something different and don’t necessarily dream of a hot summer day for their wedding. There are just not enough winter weddings out there and this Scandinavian Hygge intimate wedding was our way of re-creating one this year.” Brigi

The shoot took place at the beautiful Patricks Barn in Sussex, England, where Brigi felt that the interior resembled a Nordic cabin, and with all of the natural surroundings the team had the luxury of being able to take a nice little walk with their bridal couple.

The beautiful “wild and undone” hanging installation was created by Copper & Moss, along with all other dried flowery goodness and the bridal bouquet. Matching neutral coloured props and decoration was provided and styled by Idyllic Days, while lanterns were brought in by Hire Your Day. The base for the tablescape was a gorgeous rustic table with chairs and stone coloured ceramic plates, all hired from Co-Ordination Catering Hire. To complete the vision of the gorgeous Scandinavian scene, it was important that we were all on the same page when it came to colour scheme. These four fantastic creative suppliers worked together brilliantly and the whole day at the barn was entirely dreamy.

“The wintery wedding of course – in my opinion – could not have been complete without Lisa Lyon Bridal’s furry bridal shawl. The gorgeous dress was also created by Lisa; she’s such a talent!” Brigi

One of the highlights of this Scandi Hygge wedding is definitely The Garden Chef’s mouth-watering baked creations.

“I kind of wish we could capture the delicious smell of her gorgeous-gorgeous cakes in some way and publish it along with the images because it was truly heavenly. Danish pastries are one thing that we rarely see in weddings, yet in this case they were somehow the main pillars of our vision for this shoot.” Brigi

When it came to wedding stationery, the team wanted something simple, neutral and beautiful that would complement the Scandinavian atmosphere they had going on. Kelly & Toby from White Cottage Weddings experimented with textures and colours and came up with a beautiful suite of stationery, that encapsulated the vision for the shoot along with place-settings, menus and even the flags hanging on the walls.

“All in all we had a perfectly dreamy day at Patricks Barn filled with creativity, beauty, and heavenly deliciousness. The concept of “hygge” has always been close to my heart and I am really happy that we could come together with all off these amazingly talented suppliers and create a wedding style so hyggelig.” Brigi

Frida-Inspired Greenhouse Vibes

A banging bridal inspiration shoot, set in the tropical greenhouses of Writtle College.

Hey! Jenna here! I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited about blogging a shoot before. Sure, I may be biased as this concept was the brainchild of me as part of my other business, Wonderland Invites, but even if it wasn’t my concept…I think it would still be up there with the most exciting, bad-ass, spine-tingling shoots I’ve seen out there for a long time.

I love a styled shoot, and I tend to plan 4-6 a year. I know how hard they are to pull off and that every single detail is always meticulously thought out. Providing couples with amazing inspiration is a huge factor in the thought processes of the suppliers involved. Luckily, I had a bloody brilliant team on board with me for this baby, and you know what, they killed it…

The Premise

I guess where it started for this concept was a photoshoot that Karen from Rock The Frock curated back in 2017. It took place in the greenhouse at Writtle College; a working university dedicated to agriculture and horticulture. Ever since working on that shoot with Karen, I have wanted to shoot in the greenhouses there.

I love all things green, lush and cactus-filled – greenhouses are life, amirite? I am also a lover of beautiful Moroccan homeware, and the goddess herself Frida Khalo. In fact, I remember studying her work in GCSE Art, and since then, I just love the colourful nature of her work. So, essentially, this shoot was a pooling of different inspirations into one beautifully bohemian, colour popping shoot!

Styling

I always need to have my right-hand women shooting with me; the amazing Laura and Alex from Rock The Day Styling and Amy from Anthology Vintage Hire. They just ‘get’ my concepts and truly elevate every aspect of every shoot I have conceptualised with their amazing hire items, furniture and eye for styling. Alex had spray-painted a peacock chair black and I was itching to use it; I knew it would fit with the styling for this shoot.

Alongside reclaimed trestle tables and chairs, Amy lent her beautiful tan Chesterfield chair and her amazing new triangular arch, which the amazing Rebecca from Velvet Rose Flower Studio adorned with bang-on-trend anthurium, orchids and trailing amaranthus.

Assisting Laura and Alex was Shelley of The Neon Finca. Shelley travels to Morocco periodically to pick up amazing homeware items to stock her shop, which we incorporated into the styling of the shoot. Her gorgeous kilim cushions provided beautiful pops of colour around the peacock chair seating area, and her woven placemats gave extra depth to the tablescape, which Laura and Alex decorated with beautiful candles, glassware and bowls filled with fruit.

The Fashion

Dresses were lent by Karen of Rock The Frock and included items by Otaduy, Zetterberg, Chantelle Lauren and a jumpsuit by Velvet Hearts. I also lent an additional gown from Shikoba following a shoot we worked on together in Morocco. We mixed and matched looks on the models Shona and Louise, and added a beautiful leather jacket by Back Chat Designs for some extra sass and oomph.

Zoe from Knot Your Average Bride provided hair and makeup services; Zoe, alongside her work as a wedding HMUA, also works with a lot of fashion brands, so her eye for fashion and elevating a look was paramount. We wanted to create some edgier looks, and her amazing work definitely took us there. She was assisted on the day by CLB Hair.

Zoe also helped guide which hairpieces and jewellery would work best with which looks – we had a beautiful array of items to use from Black + Sigi, ASOS and Gypsy Rose Vintage, alongside a real flower crown created by Rebecca and a stunning floral embroidered veil from Sash & Veil.

Stationery & Cake

For the stationery, I must have spent hours of downtime working on the concept. It took ages to get right…something didn’t click at the start so I started over a good few times! I decided to incorporate a tile pattern which kinda gave me the kickstart I needed to take the design to a better place.

I always use separate inserts for shoots as they are easier to photograph, but as I was there on the day to help style, I decided to breathe life into one of my best-selling formats; the concertina design. I opted for bright colours and complemented the design with bright envelopes and tassels to add texture. You can see more of my stationery work here.

When I asked Sarah of Tiny Sarahs Cakes to provide the cake, I knew I had to provide a colourful, interesting brief as she just doesn’t do standard cakes. She’s consistently raising the roof of the cake game in the UK with her amazing, detailed and super-creative designs, so I was thrilled she said yes! And she didn’t disappoint!

The Flowers 

If you want super cool, bang-on-trend flowers in Essex, then there’s nobody better than Rebecca of Velvet Rose Flower Studio. She’s colourful, bohemian, edgy and luxe all rolled into one, and she creates the most awesome displays.

For this shoot, Rebecca played homage to the greenhouses with grasses, palms, anthurium, orchids and beautiful trailing amaranthus. She hit the nail on the head with the triangular backdrop, busting a gut to get the frame looking absolutely spot on and well-balanced.

The Models & The Photographer

I’d worked with Louise Parker previously on a shoot at Browning Brothers, and she’s an uber professional model; on time, knows her poses and is such a warm personality to have on set. I found Shona’s profile and instantly knew I wanted her to join us…not only are her brows absolute perfection, but she’s equally pro and ridiculously sweet. Both ladies were amazing to have on set.

And lastly…Megs of Megan Elle Photography. What can I say. Megan is a true talent, a real sweetheart and a brilliant director. I knew this shoot was going to be special but upon receiving the images from Megs following the day, I was in awe. Not only did she capture every detail perfectly but she also captured loads of lovely behind the scenes shots of the team working hard.

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank every single supplier involved in this shoot. You are all incredible. If you are getting married in the South East of England, then these are the suppliers you should be booking for your big day.

Anniversary Shoot: Jacklyn & Nick

Jacklyn answered a callout for a styled shoot, desperately wanting to wear her dress again!

The beautiful Jacklyn & Nick were married a year ago on the day of this shoot, September 2018. Answering a callout for models for a styled shoot, Jacklyn threw their names in the ring as she desperately wanted to wear her gown again!

Photographer, Ross Kyker, shot the pair at the Sekrit Theatre in Houston. We love the glasshouse images of the pair dancing…beautifully composed and perfectly romantic…what a way to spend your first anniversary!

Sweet Love at Addison Grove

We love a styled shoot…even more so when it involves a sweet real couple and their little cherub! 

We love a styled shoot here at Wed in The Wild…even more so when it involves a sweet-ass real couple and their little cherub! The inspiration behind this shoot was pulling in non-traditional wedding décor, like the wooden lanterns, minimally modern ceremony site and some fun extras.

Not only was the décor “untraditional”, so was the couple. The bride was pregnant with their second child for the shoot, and the couples little girl was also in attendance! Which makes for some ultra cuteness overload!

“In the words of Alex Moreau, our amazing coordinator that helped make this shoot possible, “this stunning one of a kind bohemian inspiration shoot in Dripping Springs will hit you right in the feels.” And I couldn’t agree more! This amazing inspiration shoot is filled with statement pieces. From the brass heron figurines to the vintage typewriter and cowhide textiles in the lounge, unique pieces are a hallmark of Alex’s design!” Nikk Nguyen, Photographer

What makes this shoot so unique is the “untraditional” aspects throughout which will really appeal to a vast audience; the bohemian lovers, the outside the box thinkers, the free spirits and those who want a day so unique that it cannot be recreated. Keeping the day personal is what this shoot was all about!

Boho At The Giraffe Shed

Gorgeous, dried flower and Rue de Seine inspiration from The Giraffe Shed.

After seeing this amazing Wild Ones Community workshop over on Instagram and of course, swooning over all the gorgeous details, we were so ecstatic to receive a submission from one of the photographers who attended the shootout.

Submitted by the lovely Rebecca Carpenter, this workshop was curated by an insane UK wedding scene team…including some of the finest boho suppliers; The Little Lending Company, Sass Flower and Cakes by Yolk. Dresses by Rue de Seine and Anna Campbell were lent by the amazing Jean Jackson Couture.

The workshop was the brainchild of Wild Ones Community founder, Nicola Dixon and was run in conjunction with The Giraffe Shed; a new wedding venue in Wales set up by Hannah of Rock Salt Photography.

We’re loving 2019 being the year of dried flowers and natural, peachy tones. And this shoot encapsulates a beautiful colour scheme mixed with pampas grasses and dried seed-heads, bang-on-trend wicker furniture and insane bridal styling.

“I simply adored the styling of this shoot by The Little Lending Co! Everything was on point; the flowers, the furniture, the accessories and the beautiful dresses provided by Jean Jackson Couture were incredible and a joy to photograph. Most importantly the beautiful real life couples oozed so much fun and natural chemistry!” Rebecca

Penny of The Little Lending Company has such a great eye for detail and is the doggone queen of bohemian wedding styling.  Combined with the beautiful floral displays and gorgeous cake, along with incredible stationery by Vine In The Wild, Penny created beautifully styled areas which united all of this seasons most in-demand wedding trends.

We love seeing these types of portfolio building workshops…and Nicola is a standout in the industry; well known for her amazing concepts and her black book filled with amazing suppliers who come together and pull off her overarching vision.

“I’ve followed Nicola Dixon’s work and her Wild One’s Community workshops for a while now and have always just been in awe at the calibre of styling and scale of production. I booked because February was a quieter month for me in terms of weddings and I was bursting to create some new and exciting inspirational content. I had been following The Giraffe Shed online on Instagram and just loved their branding, the story behind it and what they were all about!” Rebecca

The Giraffe Shed is a family-owned venue on a farm in Tregynon, Central Wales. Set up by Hannah of Rock Salt Photography, they offer something completely different to the surrounding wedding venue offerings…not least tonnes of personality and a perfect backdrop to throw unique, creative and highly personalised weddings.

Photographers are divided about portfolio workshops but we think they encourage a sense of community over competition which is vastly important in todays creative industries; indeed, Rebecca is much of the same mind…

“Wedding Photographers all have very different opinions about portfolio workshops but I’m all for them! Some of my closest wedding friends in the industry I’ve met on shoot days and workshops! I think it’s so important to chat with others on a shoot day and stay in touch afterwards with people you connect with, no two photographers will ever shoot the exact same thing and edit the same and that’s the beauty of photography. ” Rebecca

And when it comes to content…well, Rebecca sums it up perfectly…

“I love to attend various shoot days throughout the year as you are shooting content for YOU! You shoot the content you want to create and you shoot the type of content you want to use to attract your ideal client. You’re not under the time constraints of a wedding day and you get to experiment with ideas you wouldn’t usually risk at someones wedding. I think they are so important for your development, creativity and you get to meet some incredible fellow suppliers along the way!” Rebecca

Thank you Rebecca for sharing your beautiful work with us, and thank you to Nicola Dixon and Hannah of the Giraffe Shed for creating such a dream concept!

Warm & Cosy at Slot Doddendael

Full of gorgeous colours, an open fire and beautiful candles, this styled inspiration is warming our cockles!

OK…so the weather here in the UK has taken a real turn for the colder…what is this!! So when this warming, cosy shoot from the Netherlands landed in our inbox, we had to snap it up to help warm our cockles back up!

Full of gorgeous, autumnal colours, an open fire and beautiful candles, this styled inspiration is all that we need right now. The bridal styling is super chic, clean and elegant, and the groom-style is super dapper and bang on trend. From the food to the florals, the furniture to the amazing dessert table, we are salivating beneath our blankets!

“Normally the best time of the year to get marry is late spring and summer. But there is so much prettiness in autumn/winter weddings. Rich colours and the warmth of the fireplace are key ingredients in this styled inspiration. Autumn/winter weddings feel so much more magical, don’t you think?” Nailia, Best Day Ever Events

Real Wedding: Daryen & Markus

A super fun real wedding set in a ghost town, Wild West open air venue.

After a week long hiatus, following a major technical fault on Jenna’s laptop, we bringing gorgeous wedding inspiration back with this beautiful, super fun real wedding. Daryen & Markus were already legally married the day of their ceremony and party, but that didn’t stop the lovely couple from sharing their devotion and love for one another with their nearest and dearest. 

Ross, the couples photographer, tells us more about this gorgeous couple in love…

“These two were actually already hitched before their wedding day. They wanted to buy a house and they had to be married, so they went to the courthouse to say their I-do’s. A few months later they finally got to have a beautiful rustic wedding with family and friends to witness and celebrate with them” Ross

Excited is an understatement when Daryen and Markus told Ross that they had decided on the ghost town in Searchlight, Nevada called Eldorado Canyon. It’s a playground for a photographer, with countless places to take epic photos. The day started off in the Golden Gate at Fremont Street in Downton Las Vegas, which was actually the first ever Las Vegas hotel. How cool is that?!

The bride made her bouquet from flowers at Hobby Lobby, and after the girls got ready they all headed to Nelson in a party bus for the wedding. The men got ready in the main building, putting on their suspenders and brushing their beards.

“Daryen hid behind one of the sheds while Markus headed to the big rustic barn for their first look. How sweet was his reaction?! The black box in his hand is his gift to his Daryen; a new gun with a love letter written on it. The ceremony took place amongst cactuses, followed by eating and drinking under the stars, a pyramid of Pink Box donuts, the removal of one curious rattle snake and dancing in the old barn” Ross

Daryen explained that her decor for the day utilised bohemian inspiration but also, a lot of personal touches. She has always been a big fan of old-school floral pattern, lace and the couple were lucky enough to have the perfect place to decorate for their first dance and dance floor.

Most of the deck decor was DIY, from the table lighting to the flower arrangements to the bridesmaids bouquets and the brides bouquet.

“It was our special day and we worked really well together making sure it was perfect for us.” Daryen

The couple chose laid back outfits, and we love the fact that Daryen didn’t care about her beautiful gown getting a little bit dirty in the mud…just shows that she embraced her day and had a good old time!

“I wanted something that would be elegant and classy, yet allow for a good body movement, and always having been a fan of classic lace my choice was easy. I also wanted something that would complement my skin tone, but conceal my tattoos a little bit, so I opted for a dress that had longer but see-through sleeves. The dress itself had a 12” train and was made by Wear Your Love XO. The flower crown was another personal touch of my own.” Daryen

Markus chose an ensemble which wouldn’t detract from Daryen’s dress but would be bold enough to stand out from the desert landscape.
