I imagine that at this time of year, many of our readers are beginning to daydream about spending time in warmer climes, walking barefoot on warm sands and relaxing to the sound of the gentle lap of the ocean. These images capture the kind of scene I’m trying to describe. They were sent in by photographer Rebecca Goddard who worked with a creative team that includes one of my favourite film makers, Frances of Reellove Films. Becky and Frances collaborated with Lucy Bennett of The Boutique Wedding Co. on this shoot and Lucy talks us through how she and the creative team wanted to inspire our readers with a vision of love and wanderlust. Enjoy!
“Back in June I came together with Beccy from Rebecca Goddard Photography and Frances from Reellove Films to create a romantic and wild depiction of young love. ´Young Love Wanderlust´ is inspired by our own love of weddings and our never dying wanderlust to see the world. Both Beccy and Frances are International Wedding vendors with a passion for travel and were keen to travel to Spain to create this editorial. I myself, a Brit, love to travel each year and have settled on the wild and unknown South West coast of Spain to create our wedding planning and styling business, The Boutique Wedding Co.”

“Our dresses were both so beautiful and captured the bohemian bride look perfectly. First we used the ‘Sara’ gown by Limor Rosen (supplied via Luella’s Bridal) – a timeless bohemian dress with a beautiful shape and flow. Hand beaded lace with a nude stretch lining.”

“For our beach shots our bride changed to the Diablo gown by Rembo Styling, a bohemian two-piece with camisole top and a simple lace edged skirt. The flow and look of both dresses is informal and bohemian perfect for a beach wedding.”
“We wanted to create a wedding day story- two lovers preparing to commit to endless love. Our Wedding day begins in the Hill Top Village of Vejer de la Frontera; our young bride collects her wild and romantic bouquet, contemplates love and walks through the streets of the ancient Moorish town. Down at EL Palmar our young groom enjoys his 2nd love, surfing.
Whisked away by their romanticism and passion for each other this young couple Elope to a stunning cliff top and later, entwined in each others arms dine on the beach watching the sunset. We wanted to design an editorial where the location and the landscape did the talking, the Costa De La Luz is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe and the prettiest little villages.”
“Our soft bohemian beauty look was created by hair stylist Linda Rise and makeup artist Charlotte Lothigius. They work together across Andalucía as a wedding hair and makeup dream team, working to enhance the natural beauty of our US, UK, Irish and Australian brides that choose to marry here.”
“Our colour palette of Marsala Red, grey/blue and a soft pink are a subtle complement to the natural textures and colours of the shoot. We were keen for the flowers to be wild and natural, super greens mixed with pops of our key colours.”
“John William of JW Design in Marbella, an absolute perfectionist, created our Bouquet. John has so perfectly captured the colours of the palette and the wild and bohemian look. We tied the bouquet with a long, rough grey/blue ribbon. A special delivery from England, our floral crown is an epic creation by Nadia and Penny from Florrie and Eve.”
“For the elopement dinner I wanted to create a unique table setting, vintage chalk-painted pallets, complimented with rich colours and flavours of Spain.”
“I used the fruit to infuse the Marsala red colour, some antique plates and books from my grandmother, my home died dip dye napkins and plenty of grey/blue accessories. The cake I homemade, it was a banana cake, iced with a rich red butter cream, and the plates were adorned with a fig leaf and succulent.”
Simply exquisite. My love and thanks to the entire creative team below, but extra special thanks to photographer Photography – Rebecca Goddard, wedding film maker Reellove Films and planner and stylist The Boutique Wedding Co.
I hope these beautiful images have inspired you today.
