Midsummer Night’s Dream Wedding Inspiration

Few things conjure up the image of romance more quickly than Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. The incredible design team of Bows and Arrows conjured up this styled shoot to celebrate the love and beauty found within its pages, with endless amounts of luscious flowers and candlelit spots, captured to perfection by Apryl Ann Photography.

midsummer nights dream wedding

I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.
—Oberon describes Titania’s bower, where she sleeps.

From the stylist, Bows and Arrows: Shakespeare knew a thing or two about romance. Of all his works, “A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream” best evokes the magic and romance of a summer wedding day. In this shoot we recreated that magic and whimsy through opulent florals, cakes and tarts worthy of the queen of fairies and a dress sent from the gods. White Rock Lake Park was chosen as the backdrop of the shoot to showcase the natural beauty of the wild south. As we all know there is nothing more extraordinary than a candlelit southern summer evening with your love, fireflies winking at you like fairies in the trees, and the smell of wild honeysuckle in the air.
