Two brides in woodland at The Green Cornwall

A Fun and Romantic Wedding at The Green Cornwall

Two beautiful ladies, two stunning wedding dresses, a handfasting ceremony, dream-catchers, tacos and two brides in the band… are you ready for this awesome wedding?

Have you ever been to a wedding where the couple got on stage and played with the band? That’s exactly what the beautiful Sera and Francesca did. Not because they had had too many glasses of bubbly, but because it was ‘their’ band! You’ll have to wait to see the pictures at the end of the feature but they totally rocked it… Sera playing the bass guitar and Francesca on the drums. So cool!

Sera and Francesca had a beautiful ceremony in the wedding barn at The Green Cornwall, followed by an intimate handfasting ceremony in the garden with friends and family taking part.

The styling details of this wedding are awesome. Sera and Francesca wanted wild and quirky flowers to complement their styling, and the flowers are all really bright and fun. A lot of the details were homemade giving a real personal touch.

I have loved looking at the pictures of this amazing wedding and smiling to myself as I look at how much fun everyone is having. That was a big thing for Sera and Francesca – to make their wedding all about their friends and family enjoying themselves and having fun.

I hope you smile too whilst you enjoy these fabulous wedding pictures by Matt Pereira Photography.

The Proposal

“We’ve been working together for many years, performing together in our band, Unsung Lilly. What started off as a working relationship blossomed into friendship, and then more!

“We had talked about getting married before – we both had a feeling after only a few weeks of being together we would get married one day. We’d always discussed it as being ‘Francesca’s job’ to propose, but I (Sera) started to think about proposing.

“There were many moments when it almost happened but things would get in the way. One time after we’d just moved over to LA we hiked to the top of this beautiful canyon. We sat looking at the view and I knew, now is the moment… I was just about to say it – I even started filming secretly on my phone so we could savour it forever – and Francesca said “This place is so beautiful. It would be a great place to get engaged, wouldn’t it?”. I lost my nerve!

“Things like that happened a few times, but eventually it happened one night, on our anniversary. We had this apartment that looked out across LA, and I proposed on our balcony as we were looking out at the beautiful lights of the city. She said yes!”

Black Rocks and Ivory Bones Alternative Wedding Inspiration

Today’s wedding inspiration comes from the volcanic rock fields of Utah, and is quite simply, amazing! The pictures of this incredible alternative wedding inspiration shoot by Miesh Photography blew us away.

With geometric and geological inspiration playing a big part in wedding styling right now, this shoot fits perfectly with this growing trend. It’s edgy, bold, alternative and definitely cool and quirky!

We love the mix of the edgy landscape and modern elements used to create such amazing styling. There is a real bohemian feel to the bridal styling with the stunning oversized, loose bouquets with draping ribbons, cool hair accessories, twig crowns, boho dresses and raw crystal jewellery.

The moody setting of the volcanic rocks really set the scene for this shoot. The wedding pyramid rock-look cakes, antique platters for place settings, rugged wedding stationery and bone details all bring this black rocks and ivory bones alternative wedding inspiration together.

If you are searching for inspiration for an alternative wedding then this shoot will rock (pardon the pun) your world!

Harsh Landscape

“We wanted to show how much beauty this seemingly dark and desolate landscape offers.

“Playing off the juxtaposition of the feminine elegance and harsh landscape, we incorporated a lot of geometric or modern items, as well as overly feminine antique dresses and accents.

“This part of the earth is seemingly season-less, which can make it feel timeless and non-changing.”

An Autumn Boho Wedding Shoot in Spain

Autumn weddings are the perfect opportunity to utilise nature and its glorious offerings. We love the rustic, natural autumn elements that the very talented creative team have used to style this shoot. Berries, apples, pumpkins, nuts, figs, leaves, feathers, foliage – the lot! They have created the most wonderful visual delight; the perfect romantic styling for a autumn boho wedding or elopement.

Wedding’s Art really capture the magic of this inspirational shoot and you are going to love these pictures. You should also watch the Wedding’s Art film at the bottom with even more autumn wedding ideas.

The Inspiration

“Bohemian is so hot right now, so we thought it would be interesting to combine this style in a different way, with different colours. So, why not combine boho with the autumn season and add some magic to it?

“We started to investigate beautiful locations in Spain and asked different vendors to collaborate. The location had to be a forest with lots of nature, such as big trees and green plants. This would add a warm, mysterious and magic touch to the styled shoot. The ideal place was Mas Terrats in Pontós, approximately 1.5 hour from Barcelona, at the Costa Brava.

“Mas Terrats is a refurbished old Catalan country house from the 16th century. It’s a spectacular venue of almost 100 hectares where they organize weddings and events.

“There are many unique places in the garden. Between the olive trees, the swing hanging in a big tree, the woods, the natural pool with a little cave and an old fountain. There are many special hidden corners, which are like a fairytale!

“The main colours we wanted to use were garnet red, mustard, and grape purple, which we called ‘fig purple’ because of the season.”

The Story to Tell

“When the sun comes up, Valeria the bride has a relaxed walk between the olive trees of Mas Terrats. She’s dressed in a casual boho style that fitted with the autumn season. Valeria takes in some fresh air, enjoying the beautiful nature and listening to the sound of the birds.”

A Hidden Place

“Later, Valeria is by an old, unused fountain in the middle of the forest. Plants have now grown around it, and the fountain is in a hidden place never exhibited before. Valeria is wearing a beautiful pearl grey Celia Vela wedding dress with a long tulle skirt and an embroidered top.

A Magical Woodland Bohemian Wedding Shoot

Who’s ready for some wedding pretty this morning? You are going to be swooning over this incredibly pretty bohemian woodland inspiration shoot all day!

The styling team really created something extra special here. We adore the romantic styling of this shoot that uses the natural elements of the woodland setting. Just look at the flowers – oh and the sweet treat table looks amazing.

Enjoy the pictures of this magical woodland bohemian wedding inspiration shoot, photographed by We Are Origami Photography…

“The idea behind the shoot was to create a scene with a touch of fantasy and intrigue in a magical forest wedding setting. We were inspired by forest nymphs and luxury bohemian vibes with an ethereal, child-like innocence.

“We wanted to draw inspiration from the lush woodland with its natural elements and create a truly mesmerising wedding setting that was brimming with whimsical romance and would draw you in.

“The handmade ceremony structure was adorned with luxurious drapes and fresh blooms, and the flowers and foliage we used in the shoot included peonies, chocolate cymbidium, tea tree, peachy poppies, parrot tulips and garden roses.

“To create the eclectic styled setting we used natural fur woollen throws and cushions, copper lanterns, a bohemian jute rug with vintage love seat, ornate marble table, delicious sweets and cakes and lush pastel blooms.”
