Once upon a time… on The Wedding Community blog, we featured a really cool, quirky fairytale bride wedding shoot! We are totally in love with these styling ideas. Just look at that cake – WOW! We love the twist that the creative team have taken with this fairytale shoot; rather than the typical pretty pastel ideas that we often see, the woodland shoot location really sets the scene for the more rustic, whimsical styling. With a collection of fairytale elements including red apples, vintage keys, potions and even a looking glass, we’re sure you are going to love every detail of this shoot.
“I’d wanted to create a styled shoot with cake designer Emily Hankins for some time. Emily is incredible and hand paints her beautiful cakes, which are very popular here in Cornwall. I wanted a theme that would push Emily and enable her to create a cake that she hasn’t created before, so with my passion for fairytales I decided on a fairytale themed wedding shoot.
“Emily was so excited and got busy designing the cake, biscuits and stationery. We also joined forces with a talented florist Loulabel Floral Design, who produced a fantastic boutique and items that we could put into our settings.
“I came across our dress designer recently and knew this was the ideal dress for the shoot; it’s so elegant and pretty. We picked nearby woods as the afternoon light there was stunning and the surroundings gave me lots of inspiration – I knew the colours would be key to this look.”
