COLOURFUL WOODLAND FIESTA INSPIRED WEDDING IDEAS
In a beautiful Yorkshire woodland setting, today’s fiesta took place on the UK’s brightest day. With an intimate three acres of woodland in Leeds, Applewood provided this creative team with the perfect backdrop for this outdoor wedding shoot.
“One of the most brilliant aspects of being photographers is that we get to meet so many exceptionally talented and creative people—and it is even better when we get to work with them.” Fox & Owl photographer, Chloe began.
“It’s really exciting to work alongside other people in the industry, to observe each person adding their own individual personality to the project and to collectively produce something unique.” She continued.
“As a group, we wanted to put together a styled shoot that was bold, full of colour and a lot of fun—we quickly opted for a summery fiesta theme that would provide the perfect inspiration for those laid-back brides out there. We made the most of the venue’s woodland walks, ceremony area, cocktail shed and decking. The way-finding signage pictured throughout the shoot was also the perfect way for us to tell the ’story’ of the day.”
“The fiesta look is quite laid-back and is the perfect theme for adding splashes of bright primary colours amongst more traditional and neutral tones. Whimsical Events adorned the trees with festive crepe streamers and hand-made tissue paper pom-poms that bounced around excitedly in the wind.”
“Applewood’s cocktail shed and decking area were dressed up with more of these pom-poms as well as fruity paper pineapples. Little details were important too. A string of pink Flamingo fairy lights injected some light-hearted fun into back of the shed. Both the bar and tables were decorated with vibrant food objects and party cocktails.”
“Not for the traditional, our three tier cake boasted every colour of the rainbow. The eccentric base, which looked like it had been caught in the middle of a paint party, juxtaposed with an elegant top tier arrangement of icing flowers and ribbons. Whilst our woodland fiesta was further beautified by the wildly romantic British flowers; locally grown, cut and arranged by Owl House Flowers. Organic, colourful and relaxed in style, the bouquet and arrangements fit in with the theme just perfectly.”
