Rustic Reverie: A Natural, Country Inspired Styled Shoot By Destylio
Today we bring you yet another beautiful styled shoot, from the talented team over at Destylio. Incorporating the popular rustic theme with a country twist, this look is perfect for couples who love this trend but want to stand out and add refreshing new elements. It also contains some fantastic ideas for those of you who love music! With clean, neutral tones and gorgeous greens, the shoot involved some of our very own vendors MHG Beauty and Vanila Wedding Boutique.
The cake, by Nice Ribbon Atelier, looks particularly scrumptious but also cleverly combinines the key features of the shoot. Read on to hear all about this ‘Rustic Reverie’, and to see some more incredible images.
A Note From The Stylist
Rustic Reverie was created by Destylio to showcase the beauty of styling using the simplest elements found in nature, such as fruit, natural materials, pine cones, wood, bamboo, stones and greenery. The shoot mixes country and rustic elements to create a unique outdoor wedding setting. Beach waves, natural make up earth tones, a light beige Alencon wedding dress, ranunculus, barrels, and a nature-inspired butter cream cake are some of the elements that make up the shoot.
We decided to work around the theme of nature since we wanted to emphasise how wedding styling could be uniquely achieved with the most simplistic details that are found in our surroundings. The beautiful venue of The Farm Dubai played a major role in emphasising our theme, with its stunning greenery and bamboo walls. We later opted to style the setting with details such as fruit, pine cones, succulents, green leaves and wooden décor pieces, all of which make a strong link to nature with an elegant rustic twist. We created a hand-made wooden ladder exclusively for this shoot, further demonstrating the concept of creating everything from nature. The addition of a guitar, country hat and wine barrels bring notions of the countryside to life, showing how important it is to personalise your wedding according to your identity as a couple. In this setting, the bride expresses her love through playing and singing country music to her groom.
Working with Paula Scalco is always easy-going and comfortable, since she is able to translate our creative vision into images that speak for themselves. The wonderful ladies at Party Social had the perfect variety of rustic décor and furniture elements that made up the shoot. Katerina from Vanila Wedding Boutique was dedicated to finding the perfect dress to suit our shoot theme. Working with her was a breath of fresh air since she provided us with stunning bridal accessories and an elegant Alencon wedding dress that completed the vision we had for the shoot. Monica from MHG Beauty created a beautifully romantic look that tied the whole concept together in a wonderful way. The talented Anna from Nice Ribbon Atelier created a cake that showcased the theme beautifully, with intricately chosen flowers and a buttercream finish. Working with Irina from Blossom Tree Flower Shop was a wonderful experience since she selected the most beautiful flower combinations that enhanced the theme so perfectly.
