Autumn Heather Inspired Wedding Style

Nov 04, 2015 | Inspiration

We're always thrilled to recommend UK film photographer and Fine Art Curation member Taylor & Porter to our brides as we know first hand the talent that Louise has to showcase her brides. Then when another of our equally talent Fine Art Curation members, La Happy, joins the team, we know we'll see stunning beauty. Inspired by literary legend Emily Brontë, we love how the natural landscape, full of Autumnal color, enhances the florals by Pyrus and bridal style in this painting-like editorial...

High waving heather, ‘neath stormy blasts bending,

Midnight and moonlight and bright shining stars;

Darkness and glory rejoicingly blending,

Earth rising to heaven and heaven descending,

Man’s spirit away from its drear dongeon sending,

Bursting the fetters and breaking the bars.

All down the mountain sides, wild forest lending

One mighty voice to the life-giving wind;

Rivers their banks in the jubilee rending,

Fast through the valleys a reckless course wending,

Wider and deeper their waters extending,

Leaving a desolate desert behind.


Shining and lowering and swelling and dying,

Changing for ever from midnight to noon;

Roaring like thunder, like soft music sighing,

Shadows on shadows advancing and flying,

Lightning-bright flashes the deep gloom defying,

Coming as swiftly and fading as soon.

From Taylor & Porter: "I travelled to Scotland at the start of October and inspired by the poem “High Waving Heather” by Emily Brontë I developed this inspirational bridal editorial story.

Our bride is strong, confident modern woman. She feels a powerful connection to her native land and and draws strength from the beauty and drama in the natural landscape around her. Our colour palette is full of rich berry tones of Autumn. The day we shot on was chilly, very misty and a light rain was falling. I often tell my brides not to worry if the weather is not so great on their wedding day. A cold and misty day can be just as beautiful as a sunny one and I hope this shows that those chillier Autumnal days can be just as dramatic and pretty as a sunset."
