Back to Basics Winter Woodland Inspiration

Back to Basics Winter Woodland Inspiration

Today’s inspiration focuses on the beautiful details without the unnecessary additions that are usually added to weddings. It’s bare, minimal and organic, using the outdoors and wilderness of the woodland as it’s muse. The shoot took place at the pretty Upthorpe Wood – a quirky woodland wedding venue in Suffolk, hosting only a limited number of weddings per year. Incorporating contemporary bohemian arrangements from Foxgloves and Alice, a homemade style cake and limited rustic props, the objective was to keep distraction to a minimum so that the venue could bask in all it’s glory.

Carina and Sven’s Colourful Devonshire DIY Festival-Style Wedding

Carina and Sven’s Colourful Devonshire DIY Festival-Style Wedding

Overlooking the steep cliffs of South Devon’s glorious coast sits Carswell Farm, where this week’s real wedding couple tied the knot. Biased that I am (my home town lies up on the North coast), Devon really is a magical place, and when the sun shines as it did for Carina and Sven, you really couldn’t be anywhere better. Carina’s extremely talented friends helped to create the fun décor arrangements, matching everything perfectly to the occasion and making this a bright, bold, all-round festival bonanza of a wedding! Marquees, bell tents, rustic foliage, bunting, ribbon and live music – this wedding ticks all every festival-inspired box….

Sara and Sam’s Outdoor Cumbrian DIY Tipi Wedding

Today we bring you the gorgeous outdoor tipi wedding of Sara and Sam. They were married on a hot, sunny June day at Low House, Armathwaite, in the Lake District, in a love-struck outdoor walled-garden ceremony overlooking the river. A pom-pom strung tipi reception filled with fairy lights and an admirable effort of DIY followed the ceremony with lawn games and canapés. The couple had a horse-cart gin bar and a ‘help-yourself’ local beer stand – As you can imagine, this quickly ran out! Sara wore a 2-piece crop-top and long skirt with a racy high slit, by French designer Rime Arodaky, matched up with studded Valentino shoes and a big bunch of colourful flowers. The beautiful bursts of colour and traditional Pakastani jewellery really accentuate the heritage of the bride in such an organic and mesmerising way. We love this wedding. Enjoy!

Wild and Freespirited Ibiza Wedding Inspiration

Imagine a place where the people feel free, the sun shines over 300 days of the year and spirituality is in the wind that carries it….a couple of places may have come to mind, but the magical island that I’m referring to is Ibiza – one of my most favourite places on earth. You can imagine how excited I felt when this brilliant shoot fell into my inbox, submitted by Maria Simon. Photographer Maria is actually Berlin born, but like many of us, found peace, solace and joy on the famous Mediterranean island and now spends most of her year living and working there. The dream right? There’s so much to love about this shoot if you are an aspiring unconventional bride, as it mixes a broad range of styling and unusual looks. The result really captures the essence of Ibiza – diverse, wild and full of romantic, hazy love. It’s just beautiful.
