Woodland Berry Luxe – a beautifully creative wedding style feature with Goose & Berry

Woodland weddings have been one of my favourite styles of the year – and with lovely Lou at Whimsical Wonderland Weddings styling her own day (congratulations, Lou!) after the woodland setting where she was married, the theme looks set to continue inspiring brides and grooms for many wedding seasons to come.

We all love a woodland: there’s a magical element to the sunlight and an abundance of flora and fauna to inspire even the hardiest city dwellers… And woodland settings fire our imaginations: we’ve all lived for fairytales in our childhood, and something of their enchantment never leaves our hearts…

So it was with real excitement that I first looked at this styled shoot sent in by Emma from Goose & Berry. As well as being a boutique caterer, Goose & Berry plan, design and style weddings and wanted to display this within a shoot. Where better to publish the inspirational ideas from a day in the woods than on your favourite wedding blog?! 😉

“We really wanted to create a shoot that would showcase our styling, feature this year’s Pantone colour of the year Marsala and also include lots of food, in particular berries and be a play on our name, Goose and Berry.

The shoot has a very luxurious, romantic and ethereal feel to it, with a rustic and wild edge. Taking inspiration from the berries and the woodland setting, the colour palette is focused on berry tones and hues – wine, deep reds, pinks and purples. Greens and foliage were used in abundance too to complement the berry colours and blend into the woodland setting, whilst enhancing the berry colours and really making them pop. Hints of metallic were also interwoven into the look to add a little to the luxe.

Food and florals were a key feature within the shoot. We wanted to create something that was luxurious, but achievable and easy to incorporate into weddings; whether in an actual woodland setting or at a venue with a woodland theme. The colours were bright and sumptuous, reflecting the berries and food that we included. The main element was a dessert station, laden with delicious desserts and stunning cakes. Flowers were the main backdrop and looked glorious against the luscious green backdrop of the woodland.

The bridal look and fashion were also an important factor of the shoot and we chose a look that suited the luxe feel and worked well within a woodland setting. We wanted to create a romantic but glamorous feel and the dress, shoes and accessories blended beautifully together.

A woodland setting was chosen because we wanted a rustic contrast to the luxury table setting and food station. It worked well with the berry element and the woodland wedding look is an increasingly popular trend. We wanted to show that a woodland wedding or woodland theme doesn’t just have to be rustic and whimsical.

  • Do you have 5 minutes to read something really romantic? The story of @durhamroseuk  is wonderful: a prospective groom with an idea for the perfect engagement ring, who had to search far and wide and eventually design his own! After quite an adventure in the making, she said yes, they married... and the UK's leading bespoke engagement ring supplier was born! There's a little more to it, including the Dragons Den bit - but you can read all about that on the blog! For now, I'm in LOVE with this pendant Durham Rose created to match one of their bespoke rings. Isn't it wonderful? #customrings #bespokeengagementrings #uniqueengagementrings #engaged  #gettingmarried #durhamrose #durhamrosejewellery #bespokejewellery #behindthescenes #rosegold #ballerinaring #ballerinanecklace #matchingset #handmadejewellery #instajewellerygroup #hattongarden #london #fashion #design #handmade #bespoke #jewellery #jewelry #weddingring #wedding #engagementring #weekendvibes #dazzle #ringoftheday #ringsofinstagram
