A rustic woodland wedding shoot in Norfolk bathed in blush pink

14 May 2018

Celebrating the joys of nature, this rustic wedding shoot in Norfolk features whimsical floristry, spell-binding venue styling and an abundance of blush pink

Detailing the key components of the shoot, Brooke Thompson of Boho Beauty Box lifts the lid on how this team of Norfolk wedding suppliers brought the whimsical woodland theme together.

What was the inspiration behind the shoot?

The inspiration behind the shoot was to be able to create something whimsically rustic using blush colours and lots of foliage.

Tell us a little bit about the venue and why it was chosen.

We chose The Barn at Woodlands as it is a unique, hidden gem located in the Norfolk countryside in a little village called Stokesby. The venue has so much to offer: a stunning 19th century barn with traditional features and beautiful landscaped gardens which create the perfect backdrop for stunning photographs.

What did you choose for the flower arrangements?

We chose flowers that were wild and free flowing - nothing too structured. The florist put together a whimsical bridal bouquet with succulents and ferns along with some bridesmaid ‘swags’ -something a little different to your everyday bouquets. The table décor consisted of lots of ivy, eucalyptus and wax flowers for that wild flower feel.

What kind of look did you want to achieve with the make-up, hair and outfits for the bride?

We wanted to keep with the undone feel for the hair so as silk ribbons are on trend this year, we incorporated them in the hair styling along with some boho braids.

For the make-up, flawless glowing skin and smokey eyes were chosen which suited the hairstyles and the overall feel we wanted for the day.

For the bride we wanted to keep it quite relaxed so went for a couple of stunning gowns with some beautiful detailing and appliqué. We also had some beautiful bespoke bridesmaids' dresses for our girls. They come in a huge range of colours and bodice shapes and the blush dresses suited our theme perfectly.

What was the thinking behind the décor for the shoot?

We wanted to stay away from traditional décor and mixed it up with lots of foliage, macramé, tailor-made blush themed stationery and vintage crockery and cutlery.

What kind of accessories were used to create these looks and why?

We thought it would be great to keep décor relaxed and free flowing. With ivy hoops, macramé lanterns and festoon lighting fronting the décor, the blush lanterns, vintage crockery, bespoke stationery and rustic suitcases handled the finer details and perfect finishing touches. Again,  we chose to add in these little details to keep that whimsical, rustic feel throughout. We had a team of amazing suppliers that mucked in and created a vision together as we had no stylist on board. We were also lucky enough to have a beautiful naked cake which consisted of two tiers, blush coloured icing drips, and was embellished with gold leaf and handmade blush roses.
