Wild and Overgrown Bridal Editorial

Wedding photographer Morgan Wade had been dreaming of a bridal shoot in an overgrown forest for ages. Eventually she plucked up the courage to just go out and shoot it, and she brought an amazing team along with her. “My initial goal was to create a sort of anti-editorial; something that would appeal to a wilder kind of woman”, she wrote. “A bride who wanted to sidestep all the pretty stuff and just go for raw. I knew it wouldn’t be for everyone, and that’s okay. Somewhere out there are women who have to hold back the urge to howl at the moon; those are my brides.”

Alongside Claire of Poppystone Floral Couture, she sourced local props and décor items. “Claire had pulled together a beautiful scene and sourced everything locally”, she continued. “We purchased the gowns on eBay; beautiful vintage pieces that made us (and the models!) squeal and do happy dances. Our hair and make up artist, Jennifer Wriston, wove olive leaves, flowers, branches, feathers and pops of bright color into the models’ hair.”

“I wanted to create something that was more about following intuition and having fun, staying close to nature and seeing what developed with a great set of creative hands in the proverbial honey pot. This is just the beginning, and very much the direction I want to go in with my wedding commissions.”

    Absolutely inspiring! Appeals to me more as a fairy tale shoot then a bridal shoot.
