Rustic Elegance: Styled Wedding Inspiration With a Hint of Western
If you’ve a love for all things rustic, yet you love a touch of elegance too, this rustic chic styled wedding inspiration, with just a hint of western will inspire.
Full of organic rustic prettiness and graceful styling, this shoot mixes the natural with the elegant and then injects a touch of romance.
Wood, succulents, wild flowers, wheat and lots and lots of hay are brought together with a dreamy lace gown and a whole heap of rustic romance.
Oh. And the horses. Oooo the hooorses…

I love everything that has that sparkle and a “beauty in the rough” sort of feel. With this shoot we aimed to capture exactly that.
That raw and rustic beauty that lies within the simplest of locations, in this case, a farm, because beauty really is everywhere, we just have to find it.
The styling and décor by Beyond Vintage re-inforced this idea and together with the beautiful flower arrangements by Tarnia Williams – Flowers For Weddings and the cake by Cakes by Shelly we created a beautiful, chic and rustic wedding inspiration for all the organic and elegant brides out there.
I love how wood textures, wild flowers, cowboy boots and lace work so well together. We kept the hair and make up, by the wonderful Marijana Jovanova – Hair Sculptress and Motherlipstick, ultra soft and romantic… again adding to the rustic simplicity and elegance we wanted to showcase with this shoot.
We put this shoot together in only a few weeks and I am forever grateful to have had a team full of amazing people ready to help me take this from an initial idea to an actual real shoot.
It is such an amazing feeling to see it all happening after all the work that goes into the planning… just like it happens on a wedding day!
Thanks so much to everyone involved on this elegantly rustic project – I’ve loved sharing this.
Such gorgeous images and beautiful styling.
Ladies feeling inspired? Time to dust off those cowboy boots.
