Alone in the Woods Boho Bridal Shoot

Let's escape to the woods! A yurt set in the Shropshire woodland, a horse and a dreamy flower crown by Gilly Page. Just three of the many reasons we fell in love with this spring bridal shoot. The boho wedding vibe with relaxed smiles and rustic styling captured in a stunning setting. The serene photography by Bethany Stanley reminds us of the summer haze we've been yearning for and feel like they're getting closer.

And so to Wed - Woodland Wedding Shoot - Gilly Page3.jpg

Along a secluded country lane dappled in March sunlight a romantic yurt just for two sits nestled in the woods, deep in the Shropshire countryside. The setting for this pared-down but oh so romantic styled shoot.

A secluded, romantic destination for two is the dream of Emma Cantillion from The Barn at Lee's Farm, who has created a beautifully simple, natural setting for couples who want their day to be intimate, focusing solely on them...

Gilly Page, an artisan jeweller creating bespoke silver keepsakes, wedding crowns and accessories fell in love with this beautiful setting as soon as she saw it and just knew she had to create a magical styled shoot to tell the story of this romantic, simple but beautiful 'away from the world' alternative wedding location.

The venue complimented perfectly the etherial bohemian beauty of the brides floral wedding crown, flower hoop and buttonhole of silk flowers, ribbons and lace personalised with bespoke silver keepsake charms. The flowers, ribbons and lace echoing the colours of the woodland flora and fauna and the dappled sunlight dancing through the trees.

The styling for the shoot was just as important as the setting with everything from the beautiful vintage wrought iron bed, the centrepiece of the interior of the yurt to the rustic railway sleeper benches scattered with cosy sheepskin rugs around the romantic table set just for two outside the yurt nestled under the rooftop canopy of trees - all lovingly curated and styled by Emma and Gilly and is what the bride and her groom will see on their special day.

The tablescape for two inside this gorgeous handcrafted yurt, providing the most romantic of retreats is set with crockery, glasses, napkins, stationery and a keepsake floral centrepiece made by Gilly to compliment the brides flower crown, hoop and grooms buttonhole and echoing the colours and textures of the setting atop a vintage reclaimed barn door table and vintage reclaimed chairs.

Natural hair and make-up by Lizzie Parkin and the flowing dress from My Little Wedding Shop complement the organic, wild styling. Carefree, content and totally loved up! 

If you're planning a little mini-moon, The Barn At Lees Farm is the perfect place to elope to. Take a look at their website for full details. Keep wearing that flower crown and let the romantic boho vibes continue.
