Looking forwards a few weeks we’ll be enjoying crisp, misty mornings and frost on the paths. There’s something wonderful about the autumn and winter months: the glistening countryside as dawn breaks, and the early golden hour creeping across the land on those last few sunny evenings. Today’s shoot is a beauty: glorious golden sunlight and warm tones in wedding styling. The dresses are out of this world – and for my stationery-loving heart, the paper goodies are simply fabulous.

With sunset tones and embellished bridalwear designed and lovingly made by Maudika, this alternative elopement inspired shoot which took place in the beautiful South Oxfordshire countryside is full of details which reflect and complement the natural backdrop, combined with celestial details.
The shoot took place at the end of winter when the light was low, warm in tone and atmospheric, this worked in harmony with the warm terracottas, pinks and beiges running throughout the shoot and enhanced the sunset-inspired theme. The team of local suppliers worked in response to the winter landscape and the reoccurrence of metals, warm hues and textures show how autumn and winter can be styled to create warmth and become an even more beautiful time of year to celebrate the love between two people.
This shoot will provide styling inspiration for couples who would like a relaxed aesthetic within nature during the colder months, no matter the size of the celebration. Once deciding on the location and the concept, the rest of the aesthetics fell into place. There is even beauty in the smallest of details from the text on the invitations asking guests to join the couple “in the woods under the stars” to the tiny gold stars scattered over the cake.
