Styled Shoots

Whimsical Forest Styled Elopement Editorial

The inspiration for this styled shoot came from a love for the forests of the Pacific Northwest. The woodland elopement theme idea came easily after a location was selected.

A neutral colour palette, headlined by cream and taupe, was a stunning complement to the dark greens and browns of the natural surroundings. Keeping the design contained and structured enough to be fitting for a real wedding, yet wild enough to coincide perfectly with the setting was an enjoyable challenge for all the wedding vendors involved.

The bride was styled to look effortlessly chic amidst the natural serenity of the northwest woodlands, wearing a romantic flowing gown while barefoot, with unruly curls escaping her hairstyle. Fluid watercolour calligraphy on handmade paper and a nearly naked cake with vines seemingly growing around it added touches of natural elegance to coincide with the woodland theme. The wild floral design with pops of delicious peach and tan tones gave airy, soft texture and colour that were unusual and completed the look and theme.

Each member of the styled shoot team worked together to create a beautiful styled elopement and the results were nothing short of a romantic, intimate, woodland dream.
