Boconnoc Wedding Styled Shoot – Winter Woodland
Boconnoc sits nestled in the Cornish countryside near Lostwithiel. It is somewhere that feels timeless. As you drive down to Boconnoc House you are stepping back into the past. To a bygone age that was somehow less complicated. Grandeur and beauty combined. A pastoral existence that has somehow been lost within the hustle and bustle of todays world. It is what makes Boconnoc one of my favourite wedding venues to photograph. A Boconnoc wedding is a grand thing. This shoot came about as the result of a concept that I had been thinking about for some time. A winter wedding lost in the woods. Almost like a fairytale wedding that is lost in time. If you were walking through a woodland you would catch it in your peripheral vision. A fleeting glance of something that on closer inspection is not there. Central to this was the concept of a winter bride. A queen of the forest. Drawing on the stories created by CS Lewis and Hans Christian Anderson, this was routed in the tradition of the dark fairy tales of Northern Europe. I love the woodlands at Boconnoc. I’ve used them as a backdrop for bride and groom photos during a Boconnoc wedding. They were the perfect location for this shoot. On the day it was cold and brisk, but the team pulled together to create something that I love. I hope you do to.
The team on the day consisted of the following –
Dress – Christine Trewinnard
Hair and make up – Keeleigh Remnant
Styling – Stargazey Hire
Cake – Peboryon
Model – Zoe Tresize
I love what we created. This shoot was published in the beautiful Wed Magazine.
