Forest & Rose -Behind the Scenes. Balencia Lane Nelson Wedding Stylist.
May 7, 2015
A dreamy forest shoot inspired by florals, beauty and friendship. Together with the Wild Heart Studio team and our amazing models (including my little babe Emilia) we braved the freezing weather, hail, snow on the hills and pouring rain to create a gorgeous piece of magic deep in the forest.

I thought I would share a few of the behind the scenes from on the day.
We started the shoot with a sweet boudoir twist, featuring vintage styled lingerie and silk robes by Liah Roebuck Bridal and flower crowns by Rose Tined Illustration -also available to purchase through Balencia Lane. My darling Emilia had her modeling debut wearing Frida & Fauna and her very own flower crown. Emilia did very well in the freezing cold, going straight for the little heart shaped macaroons and the pretty little rose cupcakes we had sitting in wooden Samantha Wills boxes (I just adore SW jewllery and have quite a collection of these!)
The lovely Karen from Perfect Style is very much the WHS Mum, coming prepared with hot chocolate and blankets to keep our models cozy and dreaming of summer sunshine!
The last couple of hours shooting the sun magically came out and we got the girls into the absolutely beautiful dresses by Victor Bridesmaid and one dress by Ruby. We love teaming up with Kelly from Victor, her designs and colour pallets of her dresses are just gorgeous. The most perfect soft tones to fit with any style.
Ending the shoot with pink champagne & cheers to another fun creative day with our Wild Heart Studio Team.
Thanks again to everyone involved, also our stunning models Edan, Alesha & Hannah. And our helpers Emily, Emily & my Mum Sue! Thank you for being part of the Wild Hearts magic xx
