I’m secretly loving the fact that it’s not only wedding season right now, it’s beginning to feel like elopement season too. If you’re considering it – just do it! And if you need convincing, check out this week’s TWO elopement features on the English Wedding Blog. The first we featured on Tuesday (Daryl & Kathryn in Canada) and the second is here for you right now. Gorgeous girls Marta & Zoe have been together for 9 years, but with Marta’s family being in Brazil the girls won’t have a big wedding over here. Instead, wedding photographer Verity Westcott and a team of lovely suppliers joined forces to create a beautiful elopement styled shoot with all the ‘trimmings’!
Sometimes images speak for themselves; sometimes they sing. Today’s billowing, seaweed-scented shoot has a yearning, breathtaking aesthetic which lightens my heart with its beauty. Styled by the wonderful Serpentine Shores Co. and photographed by Salt & Sea Photography, it’s simply perfect and will appeal to beach brides everywhere.
Bleak, wild, billowing and windswept; our inspiration for this shoot was stories of mythology, both Celtic and Classical. Particularly stories based around the coast and ocean. Stories foretelling of the sea’s peculiar, poetic and enigmatic nature. Subtly, our narrative was one of a sailor, a shipwreck, a sea spirit and a Shakespearean storm.
Today’s feature is right up my street – a dreamy bohemian themed bridal shoot with some amazing local wedding suppliers on the coast in Cornwall. Fabulous images capturing each look so beautifully are by Ariana Fenton Photography and a full supplier list is below for all of you lucky Cornish brides and grooms out there!
The shoot was arranged by Kate Mabbett of Blushing Flamingos and the backdrop was a beautiful Bell Tent set up in a field of buttercups overlooking the sea in Zennor, nr. St Ives.
