Oh I love this modern forest inspiration shoot. The forest provides such a glowy green backdrop it lends itself to any number of styling ideas! Today’s crew chose a bold, jewel toned modern set up with a bohemian edge.The backdrop of the forest makes such a statement that the lush florals and gold touches practically sparkle.

Shoot concept designer and photographer Terri of Terri Hanlon Photography explains, “For such a long time I have craved a wedding inspired by elements from nature so creating this style session just amazing. The thought of two people getting married in such a secluded scene with minimal fuss is just incredibly romantic! The style of this shoot was an intimate forest elopement incorporating bold bright florals and bohemian elements. To keep the theme as authentic as possible we include the services of a celebrant to enhance the feel of the elopement. By shooting on the Sunshine Coast it created a backdrop that is achievable for any couple wanting a truly romantic and intimate setting to celebrate their union.”

Terri enlisted a team of Green and Bloom, Prop It Pretty, Big Love Weddings & Celebrations, Hair and Make up by Ashley Rose, Elly Hartly Designs, When Freddie Met Lilly, Michael Innis Menswear along with models Jim Combs and Jessica Clarkson to bring her vision to life.

Green and Bloom & Prop It Pretty created bright, lush floral arrangements and styling elements “Roberta Moberg from Green and Bloom Floristry and Prop It Pretty created some incredible blooms for both the table setting, bridal bouquet and boutonniere. I always love working with Roberta, as her style is elegant and quite modern in her approach to floral choice. We were searching for something that we have not necessarily worked with before so bold blooms and succulents were our feature.”

Watercolour stationery with gold touches was designed by Elly Hartly Designs “Elly Hartly created some incredible stationery for us inspired by the bold colour palette we had decided to use. Her designs perfectly complemented the creations and the styling by Roberta of Green and Bloom.”

Joanna of Big Love Weddings & Celebrations performed a mock ceremony for the shoot, Terri noting, “Having as much authenticity as possible was an important part of the session so we enlisted the help of a local celebrant Joanna Lincolne from Big Love Weddings and Celebrations to create a realistic feeling ceremony.”

Terri created the backdrop herself, explaining, “I created the macramé backdrop; a fair bit of Pinterest research and DIY was involved to create the curtain. I was also keen to include greenery to enhance the look. So once the curtain was strung with the help of everyone we wove greenery into the supports. We have all loved the boho style and this was one way that we could incorporate a little in our style session.”

“The furnishings and decor the gold hues and bold colourings matched with the white chairs, were purposely chosen to emulate the style of the macramé backdrop. We found this to be a subtle way for us to complement the styling chosen for the ceremony.”

Hair and Make up by Ashley Rose, styled the bride’s look. “Ashley Rose created a beautiful lose hairstyle for Jessica that really complemented the gowns from When Freddie met Lilly. Jessica’s make up was just flawless and not even the heat of the day faulted Ashley’s amazing her work. Definitely something every bride needs to know. Ashley created a look that complemented the colorful elements without overbalancing the style.”
