Good Morning! I hope you are all well and excited about what we are about to show you? Some of you may have already seen this stunning shoot as it was featured on Save The Date, but we have added a few more glorious images. So sit back, have a cup of tea to hand, and be transported into a beautiful wilderness elopement story.
Our Wilderness Elopement styled photoshoot was inspired by the dramatic effects Covid-19 has had on weddings in 2020.
Elopements and smaller intimate weddings are quite possibly going to be on the rise as strict restrictions continue to be in place for the foreseeable future. Because of this, an amazing group of wedding suppliers got together in a Derbyshire field to demonstrate just how beautiful and romantic an Elopement wedding could be. We wanted to demonstrate that just because its an elopement, or smaller wedding, doesn’t make your day any less special. You are still marrying the love of your life and that is the most wonderful and joyful commitment you can make. Love will always win!
The style inspiration for this shoot was also born out of COVID-19. The longing to get lost in nature after months of being in lockdown, and what a better place to get lost in than the Peak District. We wanted to reflect the beauty of nature and the nations newfound appreciation for the countryside. From the beautiful blooms locally grown in Derbyshire to the stunning organic design on the picnic napkins. We wanted to create a relaxed yet beautiful mood that was intimate, romantic and full of happiness.
The wonderful Nadia at Nadia Di Tullio, Ashbourne, Derbyshire created the most stunning wild bouquet and flower crown, full to the brim of texture and the colours of summer. They smelt utterly divine.
Heathy Lea as a wedding venue is utterly stunning. Backing on to the beautiful Chatsworth park, there are so many stunning locations for your wedding images. However, teaming that with the raw beauty of the Peak District and we just have major wedding goals right there!
I met Chris Smith a few years ago. He was the wedding photographer to one of our brides and I have wanted to work with him ever since. With a wonderful eye for light, Chris can really get the most stunning, stylish images. We have previously worked together on another styled Tipi shoot and he was really excited when I pitched the idea to him.
