An enchanted styled shoot

Wedding inspiration doesn't get much more enchanted than this special photo shoot, which took place against the breathtaking backdrop of The Japanese Garden in Cornwall, where a wild and wonder-filled world of natural beauty was met with some inspired wedding creatives who collaborated to produce a spectacular set of images.

Photographer Natalie Myra explains the concept of the shoot...


"The inspiration was taken from ideas about nature and spring, as flowers and plants begin to bloom and we enter that beautiful time of year. The Japanese Garden has the beauty of natural plants perfectly balanced with the cultivation of man-made sculpture allowing for this idea of bridal perfection to be something that is natural and yet created."

"The dress, which was a Claire Pettibone design, was selected to fit the model and the headwear was also selected to compliment the theme. The jewellery was hand made by Tegen Jewellery who specialises in bohemian, beachy style pieces, which put the finishing touches to the design."

"Earth tones of greens and browns mixed with bright reds and oranges were used as the colour palette for the chosen garden scenes - we even caught a couple of Koi fish swimming by at one point and they happened to be the right colours! The light changed throughout the shoot - one minute the morning sunshine was beaming, creating fierce shadows and highlights, and the next the clouds rolled over allowing for a softer, even coverage. The results have given a mixture of imagery and I love this variety!"
