IF YOU LOVE WES ANDERSON THEN YOU’LL LOVE THIS MOONRISE KINGDOM INSPIRED SHOOT!
This shoot was massively inspired by film director Wes Anderson, in particular his movie Moonrise Kingdom set at a camp site. His films use a lot of symmetry and use specific colour palettes that repeat throughout the movie. These awesome suppliers also noted the rise in festival style weddings and glamping weddings, something they were all interested in showcasing, and let me tell you, the results did not disappoint! Feast your eyes on these autumnal tones, beautiful styling and all the campsite vibes…
So in the planning of this shoot, the suppliers chose Skipbridge Country Weddings as the venue due to it’s beautiful glamping facilities, including a wonderful shepherd’s hut, campfires a plenty and an intimate snug for guests to warm up. They knew they wanted toasted marshmallows, a ‘smores’ bar and a hot drinks station which perfectly fit with the autumn setting. Their stylist Sian Chaplin also brought in camping crockery to use for the cups and plates to further add to the camping feel and autumn feel.
Horticouture created the amazing floral displays making use of milk churns, mason jars, vegetables(!) and seasonal flowers to really add colour to the wedding set up. The pumpkins and candles reflected the time of year, but sat perfectly with the colour palette we created for the shoot. Burnt oranges, pastel pinks, reds and yellows adorned the tables, aisle and wedding pagoda, creating a bright and colourful standout against the greens of the willow trees.
The bride’s dress from Francis Bridal was absolutely perfect for adventure brides getting married outdoors. Beautiful detailing on the bodice but unrestricted allowing for ease of movement. The bouquet was adorned with feathers, the same for the groom’s buttonhole And they used a simple jacket from ASOS for the groom to again keep with our autumn theme. Makeup and hair were also crafted to add to the theme.
