The Free-Spirit Festival Bride.


This afternoon we’re gathering together our girls, grabbing our most floaty bohemian frocks and running off into the forest for fun and frivolity in a tent.

And on a giant mint-green double decker bus, obvs.

Don’t worry – there will be cake. Lots of cake. And gorgeous flowers spilling out of mismatched vases. You can even crimp your hair if you want…and I’m afraid smokey eyes, floral crowns and feathers in you hair are absolutely compulsory 😉

This shoot from Jasmine Orchard and Sarah London was all about creating a free spirited festival style set up and I think the ladies have got it completely bang on…it’ll definitely have you reminiscing over your favourite Summer memories!

Jasmine Orchard:The direction for this shoot came from a vision and idea I had, of creating a free spirited festival style set up, using woodlands, camping, drink, cakes and girls together (bridesmaids or the pre bride and her close friends) getting ready, having fun eating, drinking and dressing up.

I found a perfect location which not only had woodlands, but also a pond with decking, bell tents and a double decker converted bus. I love the idea of bringing the inside out and creating a low dining table with blankets, floor cushions, candles and festoon lights hanging above, which worked really well in the clearing in the woods.

The bus and decking lent itself perfectly to a set up of peacock chairs, rugs, flowers and a tray full of drinks for the girls to relax and enjoy. The 1970’s inspiration really stemmed from the idea of lots of fabrics and patterns and the bohemian feel of an abundance of cushions, sheepskin rugs and candles. The fashion, hair and make up then followed suit with layering, crimping, flower crowns, smokey eyes and even original rollerskates.

  1. This is such a beautiful shoot and I am in love with the low table set-up in the middle of the woods. The laid-back styling is so on trend and I adore the hairstyling and floral crowns. Just lush!
