How to add magic to your fairy wedding
A woodland fairy wedding!
“The inspiration for this shoot came when Marina found an old copy of Flower Fairies by Mary Cecily Barker and the idea was born! We planned this shoot in full lockdown, and wanted to create something uplifting for the team – something pretty and nothing like we’d ever done before. We kept our eye on the restrictions, having to move this shoot back further and further. Then, two days before we were set to shoot, it was announced that makeup and beauty were still locked down. As the makeup artist, I was gutted but I went in as a coordinator, helping the models to do their own makeup and providing them with the kit they needed. This shoot means a lot to the team, and myself as it was the first time we’d all seen one another after the lockdown.”

So, how do you create a fairy wedding wonderland? This shoot is all about light pastels, especially pale pink and lilac against the sage greenery and white. Think light, bright, and airy! This fairyland really came to life with whimsical wedding styling by Sugar Lump Lane and vintage-style props from Hire My Decor. Candleholders, photo frames, and books all make awesome props and can be sourced from your local charity shop! Hire My Decor also provided the giant paper flowers, which were perfect for setting a magical, dream-like scene.
