A Colourful Boho Festival Wedding styled shoot with Birds of Prey

Today I am excited to share this gorgeous and colourful Boho Festival wedding styled shoot with Birds of Prey.

Images were captured by Ella Violet Photography with the collaboration of an exceptional creative team.

I hand over to Ella to tell us all about the shoot…


In April last year I organised a colourful boho festival wedding styled shoot.

I wanted to create something really colourful to inspire summer brides!

This proved quite a challenge to do this through the cold April showers we experienced, but we battled through!

I was lucky enough to pull together a fabulous team who really understood my vision for the shoot.


The idea for the shoot first came to me when I met with the Imperial Birds of Prey Academy last year at a wedding fair.

After meeting one of their stunning owls, I just knew we could create something really awesome.

When looking for more inspiration and current trends, I noticed that the style of other shoots including birds of prey seemed very dark and wintry.

So I thought this was a great opportunity to create something with a more colourful and boho festival vibe.


I chose Browning Bros very quickly as the location for the shoot, as it just seemed the perfect fit.

I knew I wanted it to take place outside to make the most of the light, and to be in keeping with the natural and relaxed feel of the whole shoot.

The other brilliant suppliers were carefully selected to compliment the theme.

Passion Flowers by Emma Spowage alongside Brown Birds Weddings helped to design the ceremony, cake and reception areas that really helped to tie all the ideas together.

Luca’s Cakes made a scrumptious selection of cakes, which added to that relaxed non-traditional styling.

As for the styling of our two gorgeous models, I knew it had to be colourful and unique.

After much research on the internet (to be honest I had way too much fun looking at wedding dresses for hours!), I decided that some of what our high street stores had to offer was too good to miss.

Three of the dresses were from ASOS – I particularly loved the one with the red floral embroidery as I thought this seemed really different and a unique choice for a festival style wedding. The final dress was from Next and had a heavy laced/crocheted design.

Helping to create the final look was Verity from Alter Ego Hair Design, Dayna Leigh Make Up and the lovely Eden.B Studio providing their gorgeous accessories, all of their styles fitting together seamlessly.

I really enjoyed creating these final images, as we battled against the weather on the day.

But with everyone’s creative powers, we managed to produce exactly the look I was after!
