So here’s something a little different for your Friday lunchtime. Wedding blogs can get a little too consistently pretty… all those white dresses and delicate styling touches… and an occasional reminder that it’s OK to be different is a good thing, right?!

Alternative wedding style ideas from HBA Photography on the English Wedding Blog (15)

Last Wednesday we shared HBA Photography‘s pretty, boho inspired wedding inspiration feature in bluebell woods. (If you missed it, catch up here.) The same shoot explored a more creative, brilliantly alternative look later in the day, and the behind the scenes film we showed last week hinted at a cape of flowers.

The second part of the shoot was about making time to be creative, really being inspired by the environment. Ben had noticed a raggedy part of woodland on a previous visit, much less romantic and far more rock n roll. Our second model Suki looks the epitome of rock chick chic and we added in a touch of atmospheric smokey background tinged with just the right amount of neon! Owning the ASOS dress in the process, she performed the most effortless transition in the blink of an eye, and morphed into an almost elfin like vision in a pink lace dress, flower crown and floral cuffs. Not forgetting her companion Scampi dog, who co-ordinated perfectly with her own custom-made floral collar!


Hey lovely! Today is a little special as we have a bonus feature for you. If you loved this morning’s bluebell woodland wedding inspo shoot, you’ll want to grab a cuppa and snuggle down to see this little treat! If you’ve ever wondered how a photoshoot is made, or what it’s like modelling for one, then this is for you! Nottingham-based Our Wedding Videographers capture all the details in this gorgeous film at Field & Forest – and it’s all there in just one and a half minutes of on-screen pretty!
