INSPIRATION - Bell Tents & Boho Dreaming by Wonderland Invites and Pitch Boutique, Captured by Kelsie Low

7th February 2020


Flowing seasonal blooms, on-trend wicker furniture, tasselled dresses and plants galore were all on the agenda for this bohemian styled shoot featuring a gorgeously fun real couple; Zuzanna and Harry. Over to Jenna of Wonderland Invites to tell us more about this beautiful concept...

Bell Tents & Boho Dreaming by Wonderland Invites and Pitch Boutique, Captured by Kelsie LowWhen Katie of Pitch Boutique and I first spoke about this concept, we were both keen on creating a boho shoot with the notion of vibe over palette in mind. We wanted to create a mood, a feeling...rather than just an emphasis on a colour palette. Katie has the most gorgeous bell tents that we were set on utilising in a number of ways, and we both had a team of amazing creatives in mind.

Having worked with Kelsie a few times, I knew that she would be the perfect photographer to capture the concept...and she also made Zuzanna and Harry laugh and smile most of the day. Leaving no detail uncaptured, I am always in awe of Kelsie’s direction of the models and her commitment to getting the best out of all the suppliers on the day. Natasha, from The Wildflower Wedding Planner, was on hand on the day to cast an editing eye over the models and the styling set-ups. 

The Ceremony Set-Up

Their wicker bookshelf and screens were also stand-out pieces from the day...adding some extra depth and character to key styling areas. We hired furniture from Anthology Vintage Hire, including one of Amy’s brand new white-wash trestle tables; it was the perfect backdrop to the table settings. Amy also had a gorgeous range of brand new rugs which we utilised in multiple set-ups.

The Hair, Make Up, and Accessories

Zuzanna’s makeup was kept fresh and young, and her hair coiffed into a loose and flowing bohemian braid, which we later let down to flow.

Emma is a gifted florist, and despite us asking for a palette which is hard to come by in March, Emma went all out and managed to create such beautiful installations - two of which were built from scratch on the day itself. The standout tipi piece included feathers, gorgeous greenery, beautiful hellebores and ranunculus. Emma also built a custom piece for the macrame arch too - so gorgeous and also, so much dedication on the day! 

The Cake

It looked beautiful as part of the tablescape, with a little sprig of hellebore sat on top!

The Tablescape

The Stationery

Whilst I retained some foliage in the shape of watercolour dried palms, I kept the designs modern, elegant and neutral in colour. The only real pop of colour came with some greenery on the belly bands and a gorgeous watercolour tile mosaic pattern on the envelope liner. Envelopes were kept neutral and earthy, and I finished the suite with some gorgeous boho charms and tassels. I borrowed some amazing little Mr & Mrs banners from my dear friends at White Cottage Weddings, to add in a fun element.
