These images were captured by a photographer who caused a team of wedding day suppliers earlier on within the pandemic lockdown to produce a socially distanced editorial. I'll let Jamie himself explain how these images, which capture a genuine sense of the free-spirited, modern, and bohemian bride.
"The inspiration was to explore a brand new outdoor riverside venue, which recently opened for weddings and celebrations. Crossland is managed exclusively by an event planner, event and it is a secluded, treelined oasis just around the outskirts of Bedford. It's the perfect location for a country wedding, festival style wedding, or perhaps a couple seeking to get married surrounded by nature."
"The riverside venue led us to some riparian bohemian theme; reeds, loose hangs, macramé, weaved baskets, rustic furniture, tassels, and muted pinks with occasional color pop and personality, once we wanted to capture an unconventional vibe."
Beautiful model Bibi wore effortlessly cool gowns.
"There's a nice Bohemian consistency running through all of the different elements with beautiful macrame hangings, weave baskets, a Tipi, and hand-crafted tassels adorning the wedding cake. The cake also features magical 'floating', wafer flowers that have been hand-painted along with a rattan-effect bottom tier."
"FeelTimes developed a bohemian wedding dress made only for Bibi with tassels framing her back-line to accomplish the look. The floral decor was created and styled by Joules who utilized a mixture of dried, potted, and fresh blooms along with the reed cuttings she foraged in the river. The photography was inspired through the direct sunlight light with the trees and also the movement from the wind with the reeds."
"Of course, there have been challenges bringing the shoot together throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Social distancing was difficult to maintain but luckily, I was in an outside venue, and also the set-up was well planned to ensure minimal close contact!"
"Even so, hand washing facilities were bought in along with a PPE station was installed. After online consultations, our constitute artist and hairstylist developed a striking turn to enhance the boho vibe and complement our model's natural style."
"Make-up was then applied by Bibi herself, underneath the guidance of Melissa our makeup artist who talked her through the techniques to obtain the right application."
