Finding someone who can make life seem like a walk in the garden can feel like a miraculous occurrence worth celebrating. For you, a romance like that might be something plucked from a childhood dream. Now that you’re grown, you have found the partner you’d want to take long serene walks in a garden full of blooms, blue skies, and life. Your union should definitely be celebrated in the garden of your dreams!
This editorial styled shoot was assembled to create a romantic garden wedding scenario. We were inspired by the beautiful English gardens that we often see or picture from movies and novels and oh my—I am swooning with how everything came to together! This editorial truly captured the essence of a romantic garden experience with dramatic florals and greeneries adorning the beautiful scenic landscape of The Wild Flower 301.
Pink hues combined with shades of green and ivory embellished the spacious property and it is such a breathtaking palette against the lush greens! From the architectural arches to the gorgeous bridesmaids in their floral dresses, I am so elated to have witnessed this creation brought to life, thanks to our dream team, who shared their creativity to make this happen!
One of these creatives was Dawn from Clementines who always takes me by surprise at how she can accurately deliver the perfect palettes for every story we wanted to showcase! She was able to nail every arrangement, from the bold and dramatic structures to the beautiful bridal bouquets. This wonder woman can scale on anything! She is amazing!
There were a lot of details that I love about this styled shoot including the linens from Olivia Jade Event Linens which are so exquisite, adding a touch of luxury to this romantic garden alfresco imagery! I am obsessed with the patterns and texture, I swear!
Speaking of details, my eyes are full of hearts looking at these photos! I am swooning over these well-crafted invitation designs!
Of course, we can’t forget the cake! This beauty was made by Cake Envy and oh my gosh, this was delicious in taste, and in sight! I definitely the minimalistic approach to this with beautiful touches of delicate flowers which made the cake stand out in this bed of blooms!
Did I mention that this was going to be a floral-heavy shoot? We really took “garden” seriously in this editorial and even opted to incorporate floral elements in bridesmaid dresses! We wanted this styled shoot to be true to its name from top-to-bottom! Besides, if you have been keeping up with the trends, floral dresses are hot this year and the next!
We also included these stunning bridal gowns and whimsical dresses from Lillie Mae Collection that are as dreamy as they can be!
I just want to commend our glam team for working their magic on our stunning brides and bridesmaids! Beauty by Celeste truly delivered the soft and romantic look we were going for with just a flick of her wand (makeup brushes) along with Lavana Beauty who made sure the ladies’ dos will frame their lovely faces well! I am so in love with how she styled those beautiful natural curls with accessories from The Bridal Design Group too!
This editorial was special not only because it was phenomenal but also because it’s a film photography workshop! As someone who has come to love film photography, I wanted to share how shooting in film can be an upskill and how it can help you cater to more clients in your business! We wanted this to be a valuable experience for photographers looking to set their portfolios apart! Also, we are more than grateful to The Rewind Film Lab for providing free scans and discounts to our awesome attendees!
If you’ve been planning to shoot in film, I beg you, do it! I promise you won’t regret it! In my opinion, being able to shoot film is a very valuable skill to have if you truly want to stand out as a photographer! You can read our film photography guide to start!
