Knightor Winery shoot
Wedding styling: rustic springtime
A relaxed and rustic modern wedding with forest greens and soft pinks
Standing outside on a stormy day, the wind whipping her skirts and toying with the tendrils of hair around her face, the bride in this styled shoot is thoroughly embracing the Cornish elements.
“We had planned a pretty, spring editorial with a palette of pinks and greens and featuring lots of seasonal foliage,” says photographer Arianna Fenton, who coordinated the shoot. “But as the date approached it became apparent that the weather would be typically rainy and stormy.”
While not part of the original vision, the weather adds a captivating, elemental feel to the images, while showcasing the rustic spaces and waterside arbour of Knightor Winery. A palette of forest green and pretty pink carries through the details, from the hand-painted cake to the stationery, the colours popping against the crisp whites. Eucalyptus adds a lush, earthy vibe to the tablescape, the backdrop of exposed brick walls and twinkling fairy lights bringing rustic charm in abundance.
The bride, meanwhile, nails contemporary, weather-ready bridal style: her light, delicately detailed separates add playful movement, while her textured hair, adorned with wispy florals and foliage, is the perfect look for a laid-back, rustic-chic day. She carries a wild, foliage-rich bouquet dotted with pink petals – and, of course, the ultimate wet weather bridal accessory: an umbrella!
