The Wild Bride for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Rustic elements and warm tones take centre stage when it comes to styling a Western themed wedding, and this was the jumping off point for our issue 49 cover shoot. Our inspiration was taking that feeling of living in the vast, wild west – but making it accessible for those of us without the desert on our doorstep!

Our model’s natural red hair also influenced the colour palette – we used warm, nude tones with the slightest hint of black running throughout. Although there was a distinct lack of cacti or desert in the north London photo studio where this shoot took place, we did incorporate plenty of greenery, and the dried flower and pampas grass bouquet added some sandy tones in lieu of the Mojave!

There are a lot of ways to bring the cowgirl aesthetic to your aisle style. Cowboy boots, hats, themed jewellery… Or what about a subtle dash of prairie chic with dried grasses in your bouquet and lace in your dress? We hope that these images will encourage you to run wild and free for your own wedding day look.
