An autumnal boho wedding shoot at Wellington Wood, Norfolk

20 Sep 2021

Wedding suppliers from Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire united for this bohemian shoot in the great outdoors

Natural meadows, enchanting woodlands and the season upon us were the inspiration for this collaboration.Organised by bridal hair stylist, Yuki Black, and Romy McGuigan of English Rose Photography, the team was led by Laura Williams Photography.

The inspiration

Capturing the beauty of autumn, a stripped back simple shoot allowed the surroundings and natural beauty of the venue to take centre stage. Terracotta, burgundy, gold, white and cream all played out in a captivating colour palette befitting of the season, with the suppliers' imagination and creativity key to achieving the final images. 



The venue

This woodland wedding venue is located in Thetford and caught Yuki’s eye straight away. You can smell the trees and flowers, and you can hear the birds singing. This natural environment evoking all the senses was ideal for the concept behind the shoot.


The dresses

The bespoke dresses were specially made by Tatty's Original. They were both bohemian and elegant. The burnt orange belt, worn by Becky, tied the colour scheme together. 



The hair and make-up

Yuki wanted to create soft and casual looks for the hair, but still elegantly boho. She created an up-do with body, volume and texture. The half-up half-down style showcased a different look as an alternative idea for boho wedding hair. Wendy Hook, owner of Vintage Adornments, created the tiara and hair pins in gold and burgundy.

The make-up was inspired by rustic and earthy tones, and make-up artist Danielle Baker, from Butterflies Hair Design, used a combination of items in her cruelty free make-up kit. A smokey eye, fresh face and nude lip harnessed the low maintenance bridal look. 



The cake

Stacey's Cakey Bakes created a hammered copper effect for the cake, and used neutral palm spears and dried flowers to decorate. Stacey said: "I have been in love with the hammered copper look for ages, and this shoot finally gave me the opportunity to try it."



The décor

Clare Warren Calligraphy created a unique welcome board sign as well as the name tags for the table plan. Using the set colour palette, Clare created a design that was both modern yet in keeping with the woodland setting. Clare is set to launch a range of wooden signage using birch plywood, which is a more sustainable option. 

The dried flowers were created by Flowers UK, which is a specialist in dried flowers. Not only are dried flowers on trend for weddings, but they tied in with the theme perfectly and can be a more environmentally friendly choice.
