Today we are so pleased to be sharing some beautfiful wedding inspiration from the Peak District which was created for the wild bride withan adventurous spirit in mind. Taking place in Lawrencefield in Derbyshire, the talented team of suppliers came together to illustrate just how important it is to be true to yourself and your own personality rather than feeling that you must conform to tradtion. Shoot Photographer Madeleine Winters explains more…
Out of the collaboration came truly awe inspiring images of a fearless, beautifully unique bride standing high atop a rocky outcrop, set against the backdrop of a valley and almost apocalyptic sky. Our bride raises her bouquet of untamed foliage, flowers and trailing ribbons in celebration – feeling literally and figuratively on top of the world. Perched on the rock, she soaks in the scene, reaching through the expanse and feeling free. She explores the adjacent woodland, ensconced in the vastly tall silver birch trees spanning far as the eye can see.
We hope this shoot will inspire brides to shake off the confines of traditional wedding expectations, to be true to the unique person they are inside; the person they are loved for. Brides-to-be in particular are often put under intense pressure to conform to wedding traditions which do not speak to their personalities. We want to see more brides feeling confident enough to design their wedding as a day that is truly perfect for them – inspired by and incorporating the wild places that share their hearts.”
Many thanks to the amazingly talented team of wedding creatives involved in this Peak District wild bride wedding shoot. It was beautiful!
