With a stunning range of creative floral headpieces, antlers, and a whole lot of rustic goodness, today’s woodland-themed wedding inspiration shoot photographed by Lil Elements and styled by Ruffles & Bells captures the whimsy of a wild forest wedding in the most alluring way!
From Marie of Lil Elements – “I love deer and adore how majestically beautiful they are with their gentle spirits and gorgeous brown eyes. I was inspired to do a woodland-themed wedding inspiration shoot with deer as a main element, and keeping it light and simple.
The color palette used was light pinks, white, greens and browns, and since we shot early in the morning to avoid the high temperatures during the crazy heat wave that Melbourne had this summer, everything looked fantastic bathed in golden light.”
“Wunderplant did such an amazingly creative job on the flower crowns incorporating native flowers and antlers that really worked well with our setting. Poppy Jean brought in the most amazing props and furniture for the shoot – we really couldn’t have done it without them. The rustic, yet modern pieces brought out the playfulness in our theme. Regnier Cakes make beautiful sweets for the desert table with tarts, mini cakes and jar desserts.
Bridal Atelier brought several wedding dresses with layers of lace, tulle, embroidery and beading. Each of them was exquisite and one (my favorite) was ombred in pink and had the most amazing petal texture that contrasted perfectly with the edgy-ness of the woods and forest. Sophie Knox created a makeup look for our model that was an enchanted vision along with the hairstylings of Candice from Beauty Within Makeovers.
With this shoot we wanted to welcome summer days and show how beautiful morning weddings can be. The light at sunrise brings out the most amazing sense of a remarkable day!”
