We love the calmness that this styled shoot portrays. The natural elements of the beautiful woodland set the scene for this wonderful ‘Still Nature’ wedding inspiration.
With the simply yet chic styling One Stylish Day has shown that having an outdoor wedding can be calm, relaxing and ‘with nature’, and doesn’t have to include lots of props and styling details. Louise used natural elements that complemented that surroundings, minimal embellishments for the tablescape and an abundance of candles to give a warming, cosy feel in the forest.
Nicola Dixon Photography captured the beauty of this Still Nature wedding inspiration styled shoot and we are delighted to share the incredible pictures.
Natural Elements and Textures
“This shoot is a fresh take on an outdoor wedding, inspired by simple Scandi living. There’s a sense of oneness with the wild, and a calm, comfortable appreciation of nature.
“The woodland setting is undisturbed by a tablescape that feels like it belongs, and natural elements and textures add a quiet vitality to the scene. An undone quality runs through this scheme; dripping candles, casually laid linens and twiggy floral arrangements.”
Dramatic, Natural Backdrop
“Collections of logs and tree stumps work to create an outdoor ‘room’, and pillar candles of differing sizes provide the ambience. Garlands creep around trees as if they are growing there, and the repetition of vertical tree trunks into the distance creates a dramatic, natural backdrop.
“White stationery has hewn edges and perfectly placed black serif typography.”
“Spring has yet to reach the forest, and the colour palette reflects this stillness. White and warm grey reflects a sunless sky, and soft, dull metallic finishes reflect the surroundings. Soft pinks and deep reds lift the dark forest green, woody browns and bronzes.”
“Clean lines and minimal embellishments are key to this tablescape, with white being predominant. Bronze candlesticks and black rod-handled cutlery ground the white tablecloths, off-white glazed ceramics with a light texture and natural white candles.
“The detail comes from the loose, unstructured flower arrangements, which have a ‘swept from the forest floor’ feeling. The dried elements of twigs, seed heads and bracken combined with evergreen foliage give the arrangements a sense of longevity. Nude roses, blousy anemones and rich toned ranunculus and hellebores add a flighty sensuality.”
Stillness and Simplicity
“The purity of a single tier white cake reflects the stillness and simplicity of the outdoors. The dried flower detail appears to have floated down and softly landed on top.”
