The inspiration for our shoot was to create an intimate elopement in the forest, a modern take on a classic enchanted wedding. Our bride did away with a traditional white long gown and instead wore a high-neck gold Zimmermann dress, courtesy of The Library Dress and her hair and make-up was done by the oh-so-talented Brook from The Pretty Parlour 
 
We wanted our flowers to reflect a rich darker feel and Amy from Alice and Rose weaved her usual magic to create a hand-tied bouquet featuring deep red and purple roses, tulips, snapdragons and ivy berry.
A rustic tablescape showcased an awesome collection of wares by Pretty Willow with gold and copper bowls and wooden logs for stools. The bride and groom dined on shared plates of charcuterie, served on wooden platters, flanked by Moroccan brass bowls overflowing with wild olives, nuts and fruits. Charcoal plates, deep amethyst goblets and red wine added to the moody, romantic table setting. 
 
We wanted our couple to exchange vows in front of a wall of bare-bulb lights created by Edison Events which hung from the trees giving off a romantic feel. Rather than a full ceremony, we wanted to create a setting where two lovers ran off and declared their love for one another in an intimate way. Finally, what could be better than ending the elopement with our bride and groom snuggling up together on a stack of cushions while watching Zeffirelli’s 1968 version of Romeo and Juliet surrounded by candles?
