Prepare to be DAZZLED! Aside from the stunning wedding dress with all-around sparkle — and that twinkle light backdrop — prepare to be dazzled by this über romantic and rustic wedding inspiration. With blush tones, ribbon + bows – this shiny day has every wedding ingredient that just makes ya feel good!
With design assistance from My Pretties UK, the photographer Esme Whiteside shares a bit about her vision: This shoot is at one of my fav0rite venues, Eden Barn. It is really rustic – but gets beautiful light and has lovely, luxe finishing details. I wanted to create a shoot that was simple and beautiful, with some richness in the details and florals, but at it’s core romantic and feminine.
We’re following the sparkle all the way to England for this juicy romance-

Romantic Fairy Light Backdrop
Those about-to-get-married vibes. How lovely is this fairy light waterfall against the barn stone? We love it.
The easiest way to bring the moody + romantic vibes? Hang fairy lights!
Try to take your eyes off this Riki Dalal dress from Hummingbird Bridal Studio! You can’t. It’s magical…with the illusion that there are actual fairy lights sewn in the skirt.
Romantic Love in a Rustic Place
A dusty rose bow for this bride, because what’s more feminine? Maison Archives Atelier brings the bows, and we love this romantic look for bridal hair.
All the wedding flowers, designed by Emma Cox Floristy, can truly inspire couples all over the globe with the classic, romantic palette used. Pale pinks, dusty rose + ivory flowers softly charm in this rustic setting.
Wow – this bouquet against that dress. Dreamy!!
