This is a first!! How adorable is the little deer in this wedding inspo shoot? He’s a muntjac, and he lives at Marks Hall Estate in Essex, a beautiful location for weddings and wildlife alike, with heritage woodlands and ancient landscapes. I think his appearance in today’s blog post is a sign of approval of the gentle rusticness and natural styling touches from a lovely team of creative wedding folks who curated this photoshoot!
Our wonderful friend and English Wedding Directory member Gwenda from The Gilded Fern has kindly shared this shoot with us today. The gorgeous little favour bags are hers – I think they’re beautiful, don’t you? See more at www.gildedfern.co.uk
The inspiration behind the look is beautiful rustic styling and a peach colour palette, using paler tones and accent colours. The delicate green hellebores in the floral arrangements by lovely Miss Fleur Floral make this a perfect look for a spring wedding, while the dress (from Amara Bridal Studio) with its beautifully boho, almost geometric lace pattern, is divine!
The photoshoot was captured by Olivia Knight Photography and coordinated by Charlotte of Hair So Boho. The thoughtful and pretty styling links the warm wood of the barn with a refined peach palette. The images tell the story of a wedding day all the way from ‘first look’ to reception styling – and I just adore every bit of it!
