I cannot express how much I love this shoot, and I’m so excited to be sharing it! Everything from the warm, earthy tones in the incredible woodland backdrop of The Dreys, to the various romantic set-ups created, all complemented each other and worked so well to make an idyllic wedding setting. But one of my absolute favourite things about this shoot is the bride’s hair; it is a gorgeous, show-stopping look by SJB Hair and Makeup, especially teamed with the statement hair accessory provided by Julie Impens Accessories. Aisha-Karina looks utterly stunning! And, of course, not to forget the groom, Denico, who looks devastatingly handsome in his superb three-piece suit courtesy of Slaters Menswear.
SJB Hair and Makeup and Tom Jeavons Photography worked together on everything for this shoot, from the planning and styling, through to doing their respective roles of hair and make-up and photography. In doing so, they created this beautifully rustic, bohemian shoot, which was inspired by the space around them at the venue.
This is what they had to say about it: ‘Our aim was to show contrast in the woodland environment, to bring to life the earthy tones of the natural space using hues of nudes, pinks right through the vibrant orange [and so] creating a warm and inviting space for the bride and groom. We created three beautiful, unique but cohesive spaces within the woodland forest. The ceremony [area had] a beautifully decorated flower arch; [there was ]a cosy seating space and finally a dining area with an intimate feel. The woodland space was softly lit with candles and festoon lighting through the trees for that super romantic feel. Those rustic details were threaded throughout the scene from the table décor to the Macramé inspired cake and intimate seating area.’
