Styled Shoot | Bridal Preparations

I must firstly apologise for this being my first post of 2016! It's been a super busy few months with my couples, planning their weddings for this summer, and I simply haven't had as much time as I would like to sit down and write some blog posts. I made a resolution in January to dedicate more time to blogging, so no time like the present!

In this post, I'd love to share a special styled shoot with you, which I co-ordinated last summer with the ever lovely Julie Michaelsen Photography. We planned this shoot for Hedsor House, who had just re-launched their Bridal Suite after a full renovation, and it was the perfect setting to create a Bridal preparations shoot. We had a great team working hard to create the looks in this shoot, and it was recently featured in Perfect Wedding Magazine.

Styled Shoot | Enchanted Forest

Earlier this year I worked on an Enchanted Forest styled shoot, which I would love to share with you today. I enlisted the help of some super lovely industry people to create beautiful inspiration for an outdoor ceremony, cake display and tablescape. I loved working with Green & Gorgeous Flowers, The Little Lending Co, Little Cow Creative Cakes and Things by Laura to bring my ideas to life, which was all beautifully photographed by Daria at Plenty to Declare.

This shoot was featured over on B.LOVED a little while ago, so see the full feature here.

Styled Shoot | Botanical

This week I would love to share with you a styled shoot I worked on with the amazingly talented Claire Graham earlier this year. Claire had a vision to create a simple botanical styled shoot, and invited me to co-ordinate and style the shoot. Of course I jumped at the chance! I have admired Claire's beautiful photography for a while, so it was the perfect opportunity to work with her to create some pretty inspiration for a botanical wedding.

The full shoot was featured on Magnolia Rouge earlier this week, which you can see here.
