If you like your inspo rugged and natural then today’s Nordic wedding styled shoot will be ticking all the boxes – and then some! Getting back to basics, the shoot brings together nothing more than a field, a teepee and a fire pit for an all-out bohemian affair inspired by rustic charm.

Conceived by photographer and Brides Up North Sponsor Jenny Maden, the photo shoot is brimming with all kinds of pretty, including copper cutlery, sheepskin rugs and cow hides. We think it’s safe to say that Jenny nailed it when it came it rounding up the best wedding suppliers for her shoot.

The ‘bride’ looks simply gorgeous with her pared back gown and dainty flower crown, a real ethereal beauty if ever we saw one. You’d never guess that the weather delayed the shoot though, because if anything, the pale grey skies only add to the drama. Proof that a little rain isn’t always a bad thing on your big day!

Enough talking though – it’s time to scroll through the dreamy photos and soak up all those cool Nordic vibes!

jenny says: Following a recent trip to Iceland, I had been poring over Instagram and Pinterest for Nordic-inspired interiors, landscapes and artwork. I love the simplicity and earthiness of their styling and wanted this bridal shoot to reflect a wild Nordic theme.

We chose a field in a farming area of Denton, North Yorkshire, for the shoot. Getting out into the sticks helped to achieve that feeling of remoteness and wilderness! We also featured a teepee, provided by Bar Events UK. We used one of their small teepees but they also provide much larger structures, should events require a larger capacity. Bar Events UK also provided our wooden tables and benches, as well as the fire pit.

The interior of the tepee was styled by Ange at Floral Dance, using some of her own collection of props, alongside some amazing pieces sourced from Alpine Lifestyle Boutique in Ilkley. This shop is an absolute joy to visit; full of unique and quirky pieces. Lots of natural materials were used to achieve the rustic, Nordic look, including wood, sheepskin rug and cow hides, copper cutlery, vintage brown pot vases, a silver rug, and pampas grass in copper pots. The lovely Raspberry Toast also provided us with beautiful stationery.

We also had a flower archway, made from copper piping, intertwined with hazel, birch twigs, dried phalaris grass, eucalyptus and yellow broom to create a very wild and dramatic backdrop.
