Magical Rustic Woodlands Forest Wedding
Inspired by childhood memories of growing up near the Knysna Forest, Samantha Clifton collaborated with local talent to recreate a woodsy forest bride’s dream: “When you grow up near woodlands there always seems to be a little magic in the air; of sunlight dancing through the leaves, the humming of beetles and singing of birds in the background. Growing up near the Knysna forest some of my weekends were spent exploring the woodlands on a friend’s farm and it always made me love stories of nymphs and fairies.”
The wedding inspiration for rustic forest brides was set against the splendid scenery of The Rose Pavilion at Bosky Dell Farm in Plettenberg Bay – the ideal backdrop for this rustic woodlands forest wedding shoot.
