Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a good weekend? What did you get...
I have two posts for you today, you lucky people! This morning’s post is this lovely styled shoot, where we look at the beauty of outdoor weddings. The shoot took place on 14th September 2020 at Broadfield in Herefordshire. ‘We wanted to create looks that were beautiful and eye catching, as well as showing that outdoor weddings can actually be incredibly adaptable to your personal style.’ The shoot uses two different looks to explore the many options that an outdoor wedding can bring. These two looks show Boho styling mixed with a more classic, fashion look, showing that you can use the Boho theme to represent your own personal style in lots of different ways. I love the ribbons decoration in the trees, as well as the neon sign and amazing cake featured in the second half of this shoot.
At Broadfield, we get so many couples choosing us for their big day because of the outside spaces we can offer. In fact, increasingly we’ve seen couples plan to have a totally open air wedding (if weather allows), and we think that’s only going to be more and more popular given the new normal. Some of these couples want the traditionally pretty, flowing boho styling, but we’ve found the majority want to bring together either a more classic or a more fashion wedding style with the a boho backdrop, creating a gorgeous hybrid look. We decided therefore to do a shoot influenced by this.
The inspiration really came from our couples – the desire to mix boho, outdoorsy locations and styling with fashion or classic looks. Using rustic woodland and an outdoor tiled loggia, we created two ceremony backdrops, but chose a glamorous Maggie Sottero gown and classic make up to juxtapose against it, but then brought in flowing boho bride style hair. For the second look, we used a more daring cutwork opaque Maggie Sottero gown with fashion led high street velvet shoes, but worked in classic bridal hair and make up, and then set it against a tipi wedding breakfast back drop and a rural scene (but using country house furniture). We hope that it gives inspiration to brides who want to pull together their yearning for the outdoors with their own personal style, and frankly, to have a bit of fun with it all, pulling in all the elements they love and making them work together. We chose to include late summer/early Autumn colours throughout, inspired by the florals – and this in itself was important – the majority of flowers in the shoot are homegrown locally, which as a countryside venue working closely with local suppliers is very important to us. It hopefully shows how using grown rather than flown flowers can be just as beautiful, tie you into your location, and be more sustainable. We also tried to give a fun boho feel with ribbons in the trees, rustic seating, faux furs, jars of flowers and some fabulous bright colours.
