Where the wild things are

Today you’re in for a treat of something a little different. This styled shoot is completely different to anything we’ve featured. It’s striking and we absolutely love it!

This was submitted by Elizabeth Cryan of Elizabeth Cryan Photography, she shares her inspiration behind this unique shoot…

“Each season we discover unique clients that enjoy expressing themselves through their wedding day. As wedding professionals, we often dream of how we would describe ourselves in a unique way to show future clients that we can work with them to get outside the typical wedding box. We love taking something seemingly so ordinary and turning it into an extraordinary experience. This is where our idea for a Where the Wild Things Are photoshoot began.”

“We wanted to take a childhood story we all know and love and find a way to turn it into a love story. One you could centre your wedding on, pulling out layers of details that make the touching words and details of the book carry throughout. We wanted to incorporate many of these scenes from the book, as well as pull in lines from the story to tuck into each scene. From Max’s bedroom growing into the world all around him to him sailing to some far-off land to find his wild thing.”

“Max is made the King and makes his wild thing his Queen. Their entire day is spent in the wilderness, embracing the beautiful scenery around them. Layering in details of leathers and fur, hinting that the wild things are close by. From the wild picked florals to the hair and bark and feather details in our cake. We cared the beautiful and playful details throughout this wedding. Ending our day of extraordinary adventure with a wild rumpus. And as Max and his bride awake to find they have returned home, they realised they were where someone loved them the most?”
