Wedding stying: summer colours & adorable animals
The natural world shines bright in this glorious wedding scene at Wooladon Estate
Glorious colours and the beauty of nature take centre stage in this vibrant styled shoot at Wooladon Estate. A tucked-away idyll nestled amongst 500 acres of farmland and woodland on the border of Devon and Cornwall, the venue offers an enchanting backdrop for a close-to-nature wedding – making it the perfect canvas for this shoot.
“My concept was All Things Bright and Beautiful inspired by summery, vibrant colours but also with a link to James Herriot’s novel which includes a lifestyle based around animals,” explains Hannah Jenkins of Rabbit House Studio Photography who photographed and coordinated the shoot. “Animals have always been a huge part of my life. I love it when a couple tell me they are bringing their pets to their wedding day and one of the aims of this shoot was to tap into this a little.”
The carnival of colour carries from the blooms, glassware and ribbons of the tablescape to the floral arch, which makes a glorious ceremony backdrop with the gently draping willow tree across the still waters of the lake beyond. Stationery painted with florals and a colourful buttercream cake echo the playful charm of the scene.
Donning Katie Woods Bridal’s romantic and sustainable Devon-made designs, the bride is effortlessly beautiful with her locks dancing at her shoulders, while her groom wears light grey with floral accents for a modern country-chic look. The rabbit and pony, however, are the stars of the show, bringing an adorable touch to a romantic, character-filled wedding immersed in the wonder of the natural world.
