Blush pink and natural tones for a countryside boho inspired wedding

The Concept

Back in Dec 2020 when it felt like the national lockdowns were never going to

end and there was no light at the end of the tunnel – I didn’t even know where

the end of the tunnel was, let alone the light – I decided to start planning my

first Styled Shoot, giving me something to look forward to and a reason to pick

up the cameras again.


I’d had the thought in my mind for some time and with my 20 years of event

management and PA background, I thought it would be something I would be

good at and enjoy doing. And so, the seed was planted.


I started spending endless hours looking through Pinterest, wedding blogs and

magazines to see what was en-vogue and trending and soon fell in love with the

style and theme that my collaboration partners delivered by the truck load.


With a raging hunger for fresh content and to photograph real people and

products again, I thought a little more deeply about the wedding industry as a

whole and how tough the last year has been on all of us, and with this in mind, I

looked through my little black book of trusted suppliers and then a little further

afield to those in the home counties for people that I thought would bring a flair

to the shoot and whom would understand my vision. And before I actually knew

it, the shoot had become a Herts, Beds, Bucks and Cambs focused shoot – with the

exception of our Celebrant, who comes from Suffolk.




The Theme

Imagine a summers day, a field full of beautiful summer flowers, pampas grasses

growing next to a stream, a beautiful woman walking bare foot through the

grass with a crown of flowers in her hair and the soft delicate fabric of a

bejewelled dress and veil billowing in the breeze behind her, the sunlight

glistening on the sequins and her frame sparkling like diamonds, and a

handsome strong man just a few steps behind wearing warm earthy tones that

make his eyes sparkle with hazelnut richness... this was my theme!


I know it sounds like some cliché paragraph from a really cheesy love story, but

ever the romantic, I followed where my heart and imagination would take me,

and this is where we ended up. I started out with a vision of pure boho for this

shoot but I think we drew together a more countryside-boho theme, one

that absolutely made my heart dance to happy folk songs for the whole day!


After an initial colour pallet was discussed and amended slightly, we concluded

on warm blush pinks, nudes, sands, and earthly tones of taupe, cappuccino,

eucalyptus greens and sage. The end result is a feast for the eyes and the heart

and soul.


My models for the day embraced and carried the look beautifully.


The Style

I wanted to capture the day in clean, crisp edits, no heavy filters or editing; I

wanted the settings and the colours to speak for themselves and I hope that is

what I have achieved in these images.


I wanted to keep the composition of the images quite raw and not detract from

the beauty of the individual components with elaborate poses or overly busy

surroundings, and again, I hope this is what I have achieved.
