An Ethereal Wedding in the Woods

The Story:  This wedding in the woods brings all the magic of fairy tales and enchanted forests to life.

The Location:  This all-natural wedding shoot took place in an Italian forest in Puglia’s Tentua Tresca. The ceremony set up was in the corner of an oak grove. A number of elements (including the altar and guest seating) were constructed from wood.

The Vibe: Magic and dreams. The décor was created by staging natural materials with warm and lively colours. Different summery shades of yellow, fuchsia, amaranth and pink were incorporated throughout the day. Veronica flowers around a tree trunk to create a dreamy love seat. The beauty of golden hour lighting was combined with artificial light from crystal chandeliers and warm fairy lights to create an ethereal effect. 

The Details:  The bride wore a dress covered in macramé lace and her soft hairstyle was topped with a flower crown. Natural makeup using various shades of brown perfected this boho chic style. Woodland inspired decorations included suspended branches and flowers and a wooden bar counter. A small outdoor velvet lounge was also placed amongst the woods.


  • If you are going for a boho style, make it your own (e.g., boho woodlands).
  • Use warm and intense colour to create a vibrant feel for an outdoor ceremony. 
  • Natural materials strike the perfect balance between modern and traditional.
