We were so delighted when Emma from Goose&Berry asked us to be involved in their first styled shoot and without hesitation we instantly agreed!
Working with local and preferred suppliers is key and we love a good styled shoot as, although a super amount of hard work, they are a lot of fun and you get to meet some other amazing suppliers.
The theme and style of the day was Woodland Berry Luxe – goose&berry wanted to showcase their styling abilities – as well as being fantastic caterers, they also plan, style and create wonderful weddings and events. The local area is surrounded by some stunning woodland and the woodland wedding theme is always a popular one. Using a play on words with their name and adding a luxury feel to the shoot, the Berry Luxe was added onto it as well.
Berry colours and ‘fruits of the forest’ are dominant around the woodland at this time of year (and although being shot in May – the bluebells were divine and we still think the theme would work in spring and summer) and the rich, luxurious colours work so beautifully for an Autumn wedding, especially with the produce that is bountiful currently.
We had a brief and a Pinterest moodboard to work with, and after a few meetings with Emma, we knew exactly the looks and photos that we had to capture. On the day itself, it was a hive of activity, but a schedule was set and the images flowed, in the various different woodland locations and of all the marvellous set ups – from the table, flowers and stationery, to the food and drink and all the fashion, dresses and accessories in-between.
The shoot had some marvellous contributors and people that were involved and we absolutely loved our day – having ridiculous amounts of photos that we had to whittle down to a 100 or so – it’s a tricky job with so many beautiful images, but it’s a job we must do!
Our favourite images have to be the ones with the wild garlic and the woodland canopy over head – a lovely ethereal, mysterious, but classic and romantic look. Paired with a beautiful berry bouquet – we seriously adore!
The English Wedding Blog have featured this wonderful styled shoot, which you can read and see all our wonderful photos here. It really is worth it and you can pick up some seriously fab woodland wedding inspiration from it!
