Today I am thrilled to share this pretty woodland wedding styled shoot with beautiful berry styling.
The shoot was held at East Carlton Countryside Park in Northamptonshire in a stunning outdoor setting.
Images were captured by Lindsey Arber Photography.
I hand over to Lindsey to tell you all about the shoot…
“Having worked with Helen from Honey Bee’s Vintage Teas before, I knew as soon as I had the idea of a woodland wedding styled shoot, that she would be perfect for the styling.”
“It didn’t take long for us to decide on East Carlton Countryside Park as the venue, and as soon as we had decided it was straight to the park for a recce.”
“We did manage to choose the most rainy, dull day of the year for the styled shoot, and all though we were all soaked to the bones, it didn’t stop us from laughing our way through the day.”
“It wasn’t until that evening that we realised it was Storm Angus we had been battling all day!”
“I actually think having that blanket of clouds worked well with the theme, and you can even see the rain drops hitting the floor in some of the bride and groom photos, which also adds to the over all look.”
“The cabin made the perfect backdrop with the veranda giving us enough space to create an intimate setting for the top table.”
“Helens choice of table and church pew chairs worked so well against the cabin exterior, and once the table had been dressed with all of Helens lovely china, champagne flutes, brass bowls and candle sticks (and of course the floral arrangements by Marion) it really stood out and looked inviting in those wider shots where it was surrounded by the woodland.”
“The table top itself was completely covered in different types of foliage which wrapped around all of these items making them stand out even more on the table, and also reminded of the woodland setting when viewing up close.”
“We wanted warm tones for the flowers, using deep reds and plums mixed in with lots of foliage to compliment and blend with the surrounds whilst adding a bit of colour.”
“Marion from Bluebell Floristry worked her magic on the cascading bouquet and table flowers, bringing all of those ideas together.”
“The semi naked cake from Victorias Cake Company worked perfectly in the surrounds of the woodland, and was finished nicely with some of the foliage and flowers to match the rest of the set.”
“We wanted to capture the cake on its own as a stand out piece so the dresser supplied by Honey Bee’s Vintage Tea’s worked perfectly for this, with foliage escaping from the draws to merge the items with the woodland floor.”
“Jenna from Jenna Claire Wedding Stationery supplied the paper goods for the day.”
“The use of red berries and hand drawn woodland creatures tied the items in perfectly.”
“Everything was covered in the stationery set from save the date cards, invitations, rsvp’s, information slips, order of the day slips, a seating plan, table names and menus along with name settings.”
“Our female model Raven looked stunning in her tea-length gown from Wedding Belles Kibworth.”
“We felt this was a practical option for real woodland weddings whilst still creating that statement.”
“It worked beautifully teamed with the fur shoulder wrap from Amy’s Vintage along with the sage green umbrella, which kept the rain off in a stylish way.”
“Frankie created an elegant up-do with Ravens hair which was finished off with the gorgeous Nightingale Moonstone Headdress from Miss Clemmie Bridal Accessories.”
“This design included details of feathers, Swarovski Crystal and hand cut Moonstone, so tied in really well with the rest of the bridal look with a hint of a woodland feel to it.”
“The make-up was the work of Bethany from Beauty by Bethany and consisted of warm browns and golds to create smokey eyes with a deep red on the lips which picked out the reds from the bridal bouquet.”
“It was all about the Harris Tweed for our groom Kieran’s M&S suit.”
“A simple look with a golden tie to keep the main focus on the button hole which was again supplied by Amy’s Vintage.”
“The feathers linking back in to the woodland theme and the bridal headpiece.”
“So with all of these elements bought together I feel that we created a really warm and inviting look, which is busy with lots of details, complimenting one another whilst including hints at the surrounding woodland location.”
“The way we dressed the stairs with the flower arrangements finished the bride and groom shots off perfectly as it framed the images in a way, drawing the eye in to the bride and groom.”
“I love how you can see the rain drops hitting the ground in the shots and it just shows how even if you do get rain on your wedding day, you can actually work with it to get creative photos.”
Thank you so much to Lindsey and the collaborative team for sharing their creativity and this wonderful woodland wedding styled shoot.
To say those vows in a pretty clearing surrounded by trees, and flowers must be nature at its most romantic.
The pretty, vibrant berry colours just pop against the woody and glorious foliage and the look is just breathtaking.…
