Gorgeous Wedding Setting: Twilight


Gorgeous Wedding Setting: Twilight

I have confession to make: I think the wedding in Twilight is possible the most beautiful wedding setting I have ever seen. Now, to clarify, I am not a huge twilight fan (the movies are okay, they are just not my preferred viewing) but the wedding scenery was stunning. I love the forest setting, all lush and green, the twisted branches benches,  the hanging wisteria and the bower that the couple stood in for their vows is stunning. Its a glamorous and elegant setting and, despite not being a Twihard, I can see the obvious beauty of it.

Unfortunately, I can only guess how much it would cost to recreate the look (those hanging wisteria alone would cost a fortune) but bits and pieces of it have inspired brides in their own romantic vision. For one, the forest setting is actually doable, even in WA, particularly if a bride isn’t averse to holding their wedding down south…imagine being married in the Pemberton region with those gorgeous Karri’s and Tingles! Not to mention the studding on-location shoot opportunities.  The petal covered aisle is also something that can be achieved and also, while hanging wisteria maybe difficult to get not to mention setup, its probably far easier to get a florist to make the aisle enders (or whatever they’re called!). I have also seen people mimic the canopy effect with chiffon, lace and lanterns. In fact, one of the lovely things about this look is the heavy use of greenery, which is usually cheaper than having heaps of flowers and is definitely more resilient.

Looking at how people have drawn inspiration from this film set is truly inspiring. Below are images of some of my favourites, from people who have bee able to duplicate it completely, to other who have taken one element i.e the bower and translated it to another setting entirely, to others still who have toned it back to a simple forest setting, its amazing how creative people can get.

From a wedding photographer’s viewpoint, the subdued lighting is also something to be celebrated. It may not be sunny and bright but the soft light makes skin look smooth and also avoids heavy shadows. If you like that look, have photos later in the day – an hour or two before sunset and even at, dare I say it, twilight. The photo used as the banner in is this post was taken very late in the day, using the last available light, and the inherent moodiness of that time of day is evident -its dark and romantic because it was taken so late in the day. The forest look can be achieved by using the huge fig trees in Hyde Park or the figs opposite the Swan Brewery, in the cooler months even Bush land can turn green enough for this look.

I am not alone in my admiration of this wedding look, so below are some links I have brought together that celebrate and take inspiration from the ‘Twilight’ wedding.


Till next time!
