Constructed Nature

When former Vogue picture editor Rebecca Rees (A Thing Like That) and Abigail of ar weddings got in touch with their idea for 'constructed nature' editorial shoot at the court, we jumped at the chance.

We knew this talented team would create something super inspirational and perfectly aligned with our rewilding weddings and eco ethos, and we certainly weren't disappointed!

This wildly beautiful fine-art-feel wedding shoot is packed full of inspiration for anyone hoping to plan a sustainable wedding in a stylish way, and features all the latest trends we've been spotting including bridal looks with pearls, unusual veils, feathers and that mysterious ultra-chic moody fashion vibe we're all coveting.

Ready? Let's dive in!

How to style a sustainable reception

'Using sustainable floristry methods, large and transferable floor installations of fresh and dried florals , in earth and red tones, surround the table design to represent the rewilding of the land. The table itself by contrast uses varying minimal and structural designs along the centre with the mechanics of floristry deliberately exposed. Cream pots with stone marble accents sit alongside florals and are used to create height and textural detail. Careful placement of other floral details surround the floral sculptures, including fruits such as physalis, pink salt and spices; red brick and stones - composing a modern still life design. Hand dipped earth coloured tapered candles sit at different heights and all textiles are made using natural dyeing methods. Stationery is neutral and minimal in design using recycled cardstocks and sustainable printing methods.
