My my my is today’s elopement wedding shoot giving me all the frills this morning. Ladies and gents, I am giving you a hot man warning right now. I repeat, a hot man warning! This fine looking specimen of a man is model Chris Perceval and he has some serious beach sex appeal going on. The tatts, the shades, the beard. Couple him with the stunning bohemian babe that is Samsara and The Wolf, whose free spirited vibe is what I dream of possessing, and you have the perfect beach elopement shoot.
This little slice of beach wedding heaven, put together by Kerry Lu Photography, was inspired by an Arthur Moule poem about Forever Love at Durdle Door, a stunning beach on the Dorset coastline. It features the most beautiful diaphanous gown of sequins by Australian boho luxe designer Anna Campbell from Manchester’s hipster bridal boutique Jean Jackson Couture. We are a huge fan of Jean Jackson Couture. They have the most exciting and diverse range of wedding dresses and stock some of our favourite bridal designers, Anna Campbell being one of them.
If you are planning a beach wedding, and even if your not, there is a lot of inspiration to be had from this free spirited elopement. From Samsara’s wavy locks with a simple plait to Chris’ relaxed grey suit – even the wedding bouquet is wild and gorgeous. Everything marries beautifully in this gorgeous shoot so sit back, relax and enjoy these beach wedding vibes….
‘Shall the tide thus
Ebb and flow forever
And for evermore
Rave the wave and
Glance the ripple
Through the rocks
At Durdle door’
By Arthur Moule
Inspired by this poem of forever love and it’s ever flowing waves, and the magical other worldy vibe of this Jurassic coastline, Photographer Kerry Thomas felt Durdle Door beach was the perfect place for an elopement shoot for a wanderlust couple and their wolf.
Bohemian Samsara wore a diaphanous gown of sequins by Australia boho luxe designer Anna Campbell from Manchester’s hipster bridal boutique Jean Jackson Couture. Teamed with a bodysuit and western style boots and fedora. Free flowing boho flowers from floral artist Frog Flowers in Manchester, added to the laid back luxury of our free spirited couple.
