These pictures by Rebecca Goddard of this intimate bohemian elopement styled shoot in Spain are incredible.
Imagine eloping to a deserted beach in Spain to say your ‘I dos’.
Imagine wearing an ethereal wedding dress with a beautiful floral crown, and feeling the sand between your toes.
Imagine the two of you enjoying a delicious picnic style meal, sat watching the sunset.
Imagine no more… this bohemian inspired shoot has it all, and it’s breathtaking. Lucy Bennett of The Boutique Wedding Co explains how the shoot came together…
“In June 2015 I came together with Reel Love Films and Rebecca Goddard Photography to create ‘Young Love Wanderlust’, a romantic and wild depiction of young love inspired by our love of weddings and never dying wanderlust to see the world.
“Beccy and Frances were keen to travel to Spain to create this shoot, and when they approached me they envisioned a wild elopement between two young bohemian lovers on a Spanish cliff top. I have settled on the wild and unknown south west coast of Spain, and was passionate to share my favourite cliff top beaches. Using the settings of surf spot El Palmar and the hill top town of Vejer de la Frontera, we created this beautiful wedding day story of two young lovers preparing to commit to endless love.
“Our wedding day begins with our young bride collecting her wild, romantic bouquet in the hill top village of Vejer de la Frontera. She contemplates love as she walks through the streets of the ancient Moorish town, whilst down at El Palmar our young groom is enjoying his second love, surfing. The young couple elope to a stunning cliff top, later dining on the beach as they watch the sun set.
“The two beautiful dresses worn by our bride both perfectly captured the bohemian look, with an informal feel perfect for a beach wedding. The first dress, Sara by Limor Rosen, is a timeless dress with beautiful shape and flow, hand-beaded lace and a nude stretch lining. On the beach our bride wore Diablo by Rembo Styling, a two-piece with camisole top and simple lace-edged skirt.
“We used a colour palette of marsala red, grey/blue and a soft pink, which subtly complemented the natural textures and colours of the landscape. We wanted the flowers to be wild and natural, with greens mixed with pops of colour.
“Our bouquet was created by John William of JW Design in Marbella. John is an absolute perfectionist, and captured the colours of the palette and the wild bohemian look perfectly.
“The epic floral crown was created by Nadia and Philippa from Florrie and Eve, and was a special delivery from England.
“I wanted to create a unique table setting for the elopement dinner, using vintage chalk-painted pallets which were complemented with rich colours and flavours of Spain. Fruit was used to infuse the marsala red, and the table was styled with antique plates and books from my grandmother, dip dye napkins and blue/grey accessories.
“Linda Rise (hair) and Charlotte Lothigius (make-up), who work together across Andalusia as a wedding hair and make-up dream team, created our bride’s soft bohemian look.”
