We absolutely adore this woodland wedding shoot that took place in Leadenham Estate. It’s a beautiful clearing in the woods which offers the perfect setting for a unique and magical woodland wedding.
For this shoot Amy Lauren Weddings wanted to create a theme where the woods supplied the furniture needed for a wedding. Everything you would expect to see inside a wedding, could be seen right here at the woodland wedding shoot.
The area was styled by Jack Loves Jill who really embraced the woodland idea for the wedding and the theme of bringing the indoors, outdoors. Working with Flowery T they created a tea party style of wedding reception. It was created to look like a living and live table, that lives in the woods. This idea was made possible with floor vines that tangled up the chairs and a chandelier can be seen hanging from the branches of the tree too. The moongate from Flowers by T acted as the perfect frame and backdrop for the more formal photos.
Instead of working on the wooded area to create a setting, for this woodland wedding shoot, wedding suppliers worked with the setting to create a woodland wedding style shoot from what they had around them. For example, the living table was placed among ferns, moss, vines and ivy that created a living carpet.
Glasses and crystals were used to bounce the natural light around the setting. The clear colour of the crystal and glasses added to the beauty of the woodland wedding style, instead of taking the eye away from the natural beauty of the location.
Holly’s Garden Kitchen completed the catering and cake for this woodland wedding shoot. She carefully incorporated the exact textures and colours of the woodland into the wedding supplies she offered. This included intertwining the table styling and the drinks station, with the help of a stunning crystal decanter.
Of course, we can’t talk about this magical woodland wedding shoot without mentioning the special guests. The alpacas added the dynamics of the shoot. They certainly added a majestic element to the wedding, to make it one that would not be forgotten any time soon. The beautiful alpacas also added a gentle nod towards a ‘mad hatters tea party’ theme to the magical woodland wedding shoot too.
The flowing wedding dressed matched the beauty for the flowing vines. The sleeves on the wedding dresses offered that extra layer of warmth needed for outdoor weddings. The brides dress and grooms’ suit once again matched the wedding theme wonderfully. A casual, laid back, yet romantic and bohemian feel came through when they were in the woodland wedding setting.
Leadenham Estate is a beautiful location for an outdoor woodland wedding, or a woodland wedding reception if you would prefer. If you are dreaming of a magical woodland wedding for your special day, call our team now. We can even help you with the extra special guests if you’d like.
