The Quirky

November 8, 2014

When it comes to me accepting submissions to feature on this blog, I always ask myself the same two simple questions: Will my readers like this? And are there ideas in here that people can actually apply to their own weddings? More and more these days, I’m only able to answer yes to both these questions with the real weddings I’m sent. However sometimes, just sometimes, a styled wedding shoot fits the bill as well.

I’m thrilled to share this gorgeous shoot with you today because it is just that – totally gorgeous – but all the fun, colourful details are very much DIY and budget-friendly. You could take what you see here and apply the ideas to your own wedding without too much fuss (or expense!) and that makes me very happy indeed.

The bride’s dress is actually from Miss Selfridge, vintage globes can be picked up in second-hand stores and boot fairs everywhere, and even the giant dream catcher could be made with some feathers, rope and a big hoola hoop. Brilliant.

“The idea for this shoot was to create with a mix and match of all the things I love”, photographer Beatrice told me. “I wanted a colour explosion, an original venue, geometric patterns, a big flower crown, vintage items… But I still wanted this shoot to be modern. We were inspired by Hungarian Kalocsa style and Mexican folk to choose our patterns, flowers and colours. The shoot took place in Paluel, Normandy, France. This is the last place I would have thought for finding yurts! A place called Rando Yourte, near the beach.”
