Organic riverside bridal inspiration in the woods

United Kingdom Wedding Inspiration

By Magnolia Rouge

We're kickstarting the week with this beautiful shoot in the woods by THERESA FUREY. With a beautiful gown from LAURA DE SAGAZEN it's like a refreshing visit with Mother Nature. From Amber, stylist and florist of AMBER PERSIA FLOWERS & EVENTS, "Christopher Marlowe's wonderfully evocative poem was the inspiration for this shoot, and the stunning Grenofen Woods in Devon the perfect location, with its crystal clear river and the moss covered walls of an ancient copper mine. Drawing on the wood's past existence as a working mine, copper details were subtly woven throughout the shoot, from model Claire's gorgeous hair to the ancient copper jug used to gather water, and the copper tinted script of the invites. Photographer Theresa Furey perfectly captured the wonderful serenity of the woods, from the lushness of the tablescape and its wild arrangement inspired by the beautiful surroundings, to the exquisite Laura de Sagazen dress and delicate lace romper, the laid-back femininity of which contrasted exquisitely with the raw and dramatic natural landscape."

"I walk'd along a stream,
for pureness rare,
Brighter than sun-shine;
for it did acquaint
The dullest sight with all the glorious prey
That in the pebble-paved channel lay.
No molten crystal, but a richer mine,
​Even Nature's rarest alchymy ran there..."
