Today’s inspirational shoot is like something out of a fairytale, a laid-back modern fairytale but a fairytale woodland wedding nonetheless. Think little red riding hood, with a touch of Hansel and Gretel and a whole dose of an intimate love story to rival any Snow White or Sleeping Beauty.

Set in a secluded forest, this stunning Austrian shoot provides an abundance of autumnal and winter wedding inspiration, with gorgeous shades of green, berry and cream, incredible fashion and a to-die-for candlelit first-dance.

Here’s the film from the shoot to give you a little taster of just how beautiful it is:

Stefanie who created the shoot told us: “Summer might be a classical time for a wedding but in autumn, when it’s cooler outside, a wedding can be equally beautiful. With furs, blankets, candles and fire bowls the wedding party can easily spend unforgettable hours outside. Natural materials, homemade cakes and other sweets turn the party in something unique and personal.”

Stefanie of Mademoiselle Fee explains the dreamy vision behind the shoot: “Our idea was to accompany a newly wed couple on a romantic walk through an autumnal forest. The two have just exchanged vows,  maybe in a chapel close by.

What we wanted to show was a couple, close to nature and grounded, spending this most beautiful day where their hearts are drawing them – to the forest with a little secluded house.”

Can you believe this gorgeous ‘bride and groom’ are a couple in real life too?

I am so in love with this cape from Pia Mia, it is such an amazing alternative cover up and would love to see a real bride gracing these pages in something similar.

They picked the perfect intimate reception venue for this shoot, a cosy, remote wooden clad pub set in the forest that they adorned with simple decor and beautiful blooms. How gorgeous would it be to find a little place like this you can make your own?

As Stefanie explains, sometimes you could overlook a venue that could easily be transformed: “Even plain places can start shining with the addition of candles, strings of light and delicate flowers. A place where you have spent hours full of laughter and joy with your friends might be the ideal place for your wedding reception.”

If you are planning an autumn or winter wedding then consider fur throws and rich-toned seasonal flowers which make the perfect combination without being too obvious.

When looking at wedding day attire inspiration nothing beats a tweed suit in my eyes. Matched with a bow tie you have the perfect combination of feeling smart and dressed up for your big day but still laid back.

A gorgeous spread was created of divine desserts set on vintage crockery, beautiful gold calligraphy place settings and statement florals. The contrast between the delicate and dainty flowers and crockery set against the rustic surroundings works perfectly.

It is worth noting that whilst this shoot has a distinct wintry feel, the flowers in season at the time were summer or autumn flowers such as dahlias and hydrangeas.

As the sun set, Stefanie took advantage of the dark to provide some gorgeous candlelit inspiration. One of the great things about autumn and winter weddings is taking advantage of the early dark evenings and going to town on mood lighting.

No autumn or winter wedding would be complete without a romantic bonfire wrapped in blankets. And if your beloved is skilled enough to be able to serenade you, then what better time than on your wedding day.
