I’m quite sure if you’re a regular reader you will remember this magical fairytale woodland wedding shoot from Austria sent to us by the lovely Stephanie of Mademoiselle Fee – well we have another beautiful shoot to share from her today.

A boho picnic wedding with a barefoot bride

Set on a weather worn wooden dock over an Austrian lake, this English picnic and wildflower inspired shoot brings you just the right amount of down-to-earth boho wedding inspiration.

From a barefoot bride in a 1970s-esque crochet wedding dress to the understated (and therefore perfect in my books) tea party, what I love most about the shoots created by Mademoiselle Fee and her team is the genuine, heartfelt love and emotions that emanate from the pictures. Yes, the detailings are beautiful, but it’s the tenderness that is captured, woven in with the pretty details, that make her shoots truly special.

A homage to English picnics and wildflowers

The inspiration from the shoot came from both the lake itself and a flower crown, from one of our own dear friends, Amy Swann. Stephanie told me:

“I love this place at the lake, so do all our friends, and when I saw Amy Swann’s flower crown, I immediately had this picture in my mind of a relaxed couple lying on the deck. Some years ago, when I was engaged, I found The Natural Wedding Company and have been following your inspiring blog posts ever since. This shoot is a homage to English picnics and wildflowers, to bunting and homemade cakes. I love this outdoor way of enjoying life and nature.”

A crochet wedding dress for a boho bride

“I found a wonderful model, her tattoos are really beautiful and everything just fell into place. The bride’s dress is completely handmade by a sweet lady here in Austria who crochets bridal gowns – they take hours and hours. Her creations are amazing, each of them unique and great for a boho bride.”

A colour palette inspired by nature

“We tried to create a simple, relaxed and cosy scene. I tried to find colours corresponding with the greenish blue of the lake and others fitting the pink of Amy’s flower crown. The colours are also repeated in the stationery, which picks up the bunting theme – bunting and pinwheels symbolise a playful kind of celebration; festive and and fun at the same time.”

The little details

“The cakes fitted the whole theme so well, they were delicious and look homemade. The necklace, ring and bracelet worn by the bride are delicate and correspond with one of the model’s tattoos (on her instep), which is star.”

Stephanie tells me that in Austria couples often celebrate their wedding in a traditional way, and she is hoping through her photoshoots to get Austrian couples enthusiastic about a different kind of wedding party. Here’s hoping that she gets to design a real picnic wedding one day soon!
