Adventurous & Carefree Elopement in the Woods

When a wedding photographer gets married, you know the pictures are going to be a big consideration. Peyton, who married Cullen in June, decided she wanted the day primarily shot on film and so they hired Coral Dove Photography to do the honours. They eloped in the woods in Maryland with a $2000 budget. The bride wore vintage dress she found on Facebook marketplace for $75 and carried a bouquet made from flowers from her grandmother’s garden.

The day began with them getting ready together at home, they then drove to the mountains for their tiny elopement. They all hiked to a spot they picked out between two giant stones and had a hand fasting. They put together a terrarium using dirt from the ground to remember their ceremony followed by donuts and photos.

Gothic Boho Woodland Fairy Tale Wedding

If you looked up ‘woodland fairy tale wedding’ in the wedding dictionary, there should be a photo of Sarah-Jane and Murry’s wedding right there. It’s the perfect example of a laid back yet every detail has been considered, day.

The décor they chose had a gothic boho vibe, two distinct themes that shouldn’t really work together but they totally do. Black plates, animal skulls and black candle sticks sat perfectly with flowing muted coloured floral displays, rustic wooden tables and gold silverware.

The day was held at The Side Porch in Gray Tennessee, which is owned by the bride’s family. The property is set on a picturesque 17-acres complete with streams, woodlands and fields and was ideal for their day. “The words I used constantly to describe how we wanted our wedding to look were dark, moody, woodsy and alternatively elegant”, the bride explained. “We got a lot of inspiration from Pinterest! We found our own personal style in the inspiration. Neither of us are very colourful people and we wanted this to be reflected in the wedding.”

Boho Meets 1920s Rainy Lake Wedding

Despite what Alanis Morrisette said, rain on your wedding day isn’t always a bad thing and today’s wedding feature is a lesson that your day will still be perfect even if things go differently than planned! Rebekah and Jesse were inspired by their love of nature for their September wedding, choosing Blue Heron Lake in Dorset, Ohio to host the day.

The couple didn’t stick to a budget, but reckon they spent around $8,000. Agape Photography beautifully captured the day, and they planned it themselves. Rebekah wore a BHLDN gown and accessorised with a hair drape from Azure Jewellery. Jesse chose some amazing decadent floral boots to accessorise his suit.  The couple chose custom wedding rings made by The Northway Studio.

Harry Potter & Lord of the Rings Themed Wedding in a Treehouse

Amanda and Matt have worked together for years doing weird Health and Safety stuff. “Our eyes met over an arsenic stuffed otter in a museum storeroom,” Amanda told us, “whilst carrying out risk assessments for all the lovely toxic things that the Victorians left behind. It was much like the scene from ‘Lady and the Tramp’ with the spaghetti and meatballs, but with overalls, rubber gloves and face masks. Since then we have travelled the land, looking at such amazingly beautiful things as clinical waste, stinky composting sites and my favourite, the sweet factory making chocolate willies.”

As self-confessed nerds – Amanda with Harry Potter and mystical fairy forests and Matt, retro gaming and Lord of the Rings, an enchanted forest theme was a natural concept for their February wedding. They chose The Treehouse at Alnwick Garden, Northumberland as their venue as a chance to hang out in the trees and party like crazy was a winner from the start!

Moody & Romantic Woodland Wedding

With a $10,000 budget, Allexa and Evan saved in many areas when it came to planning their March wedding. “One of our biggest savings was hiring an AirBnb for the weekend,” the bride told us. “Not only was it much cheaper than a venue would have been, it also included our accommodation expenses for three nights!”

They chose a retreat in McKinleyville, California, as the hub for their warm and cosy, woodland themed day. “I wanted the day to have an ethereal but edgy, enchanted forest vibe. I spent the last five years collecting ideas from Pinterest and Instagram, and pulled in our own ideas to make the day feel more like ‘us’”.
