Creative Woodland Wedding Inspiration with Bluebells

Whenever I think of spring (which is quite a lot recently, as I’m longing for some spring air) I think of the bluebell woods. I love coming across a carpet of bluebells in woodland because, for me, it epitomises spring time. If you’re planning a spring wedding and want to have incredible pictures that capture the beauty of the season, a wedding venue that has a bluebell woodland is the perfect way. Think about the picture possibilities with a backdrop of a tranquil woodland surrounded with a sea of beautiful bluebells.

Today I have a really cool, creative shoot for you which showcases some fabulous ways to style a woodland wedding, plus some very creative ways to use bluebells.

The creative team made the most of the natural woodland surrounds. They created such a visual delight with the tablescape adorned with moss, an array of delicate blue and white flowers and a super-cute moss rabbit to add another flare of spring. The place settings are very natural with a ribbon-tied napkin laid with a small delphinium flower, a sprig of fern and of course, a bluebell – simple yet stylish. The white tiered wedding cake is also adorned with the pretty white and blue flowers to complement the styling.

The location for the shoot is the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding, so the team styled a beautiful ceremony set-up, complete with a stunning floral backdrop of large LOVE letters and a large willow circle. There is also a rustic arch with complementing floral arrangement. These ethereal styling ideas all work so beautifully against the bluebell woodland setting, giving a romantic bohemian vibe to the concept.

If you fancy a woodland wedding but are looking for more of a rock chick vibe, you will love the look the styling team created for the second bride in the shoot. These alternative wedding ideas include neon, leather jackets, and even an incredible living cape made from the forest fern and bluebells; totally unique!

Styled by Nadia Di Tullio, the fabulous HBA Photography has captured these woodland wedding ideas so perfectly, and I am delighted to share them with you. Enjoy!

Bluebell Woods

“The newly formed Field and Forest Weddings, run by Charlotte and Dave Garner, is a stunning location hosting woodland weddings, natural ceremonies and other events. They invited us to the beautiful village of Yoxall, in the Staffordshire countryside, to have a nosey round the stunning bluebell woods at this new wedding venue.

“Have you ever seen a sea of bluebells? It was stunning and the perfect place for some dreamy wedding photos. We are lucky to know some very talented and lovely people within our industry, and they were all happy to contribute to our ideas.”
