Planning

Well isn't this just dreamy...I'm a boho girl at heart, so this gorgeous inspiration shoot is right up my street. From the blousey blooms, to the giant dream catchers, the flowing dresses to the beautiful tablescapes, there's so much here to swoon over. Images come from Kelly at Lola Rose Photography, who is lucky enough to shoot real life weddings that look as lovely as this.

The Inspiration

From The Team: The initial concept of this eclectic styled shoot was thought up by wedding stationery designer Jacquie of White Olive Designs and wedding photographer Kelly of Lola Rose Photography (both specialising in weddings for the free-spirited couple). Kelly and Jacquie wanted to collaborate on a styled shoot using blush, grey, rose gold and powder blue tones with lots of pretty bohemian details. With visions of a barefoot bride with loose braids and feathers in her hair, a groom in a vintage suit with braces, loosely tied wildflower bouquets, teepees, bare tables dressed in silk linens and candles galore, it was time to start planning the shoot...

The Props

The very talented Gemma of The White Emporium offered to style the shoot for us, providing some fabulous props, from a naked teepee to a rustic wooden cake table and stand for the doughnuts. Chantal of Twiggy Thistle provided tonnes of beautiful flowers and foliage for us to use for the shoot as well as a perfect bouquet and buttonhole for the models.

The Venue

We were lucky enough to have permission to use the beautiful South Farm wedding venue which was the perfect backdrop for the shoot with its country farmhouse, dairy barn and fab gypsy caravans. With so many options for photos we wanted to make the most of the venue with different scenes to inspire brides and grooms to be for the different stages of their wedding day. Starting in the Old Dairy we set up a table scene with beautiful blush silk tableware by Lancaster & Cornish, rose gold details, dried moss, candles and luxury cotton rag table stationery by White Olive Designs. The second set up was the naked teepee with candles, sequinned pouffes, drapes and pretty lighting which created a chill out den area for our model bride and groom. We then made the most of the beautiful outdoor backdrops with our real model couple Charlotte and Freddie. Charlotte wore two stunning dip dye dresses from the incredible Lucy Can't Dance collection with Freddie wearing a vintage suit and braces from The Vintage Suit Hire Co. The bouquet featured pretty flowers in exactly the right blush and blue shades to go with our theme and finished off with loosely tied matching silk ribbons by Lancaster & Cornish.

The Sweet Treats

To finish off the days shoot we had a rustic cake table set with a log slice cake stand for the Krispy Kreme doughnuts which was dressed with pretty foliage, candles and finished off with three hanging hoops decorated with ribbons and foliage.
