So lucky to photograph Faye’s post wedding bridal shoot. Weddings are so fast paced with little time to dedicate to one element during the day, so it is really lovely to be able to spend a couple of hours just documenting the brides style and dress after the wedding day. I definitely recommend any bride treating themselves to a day of pampering on set and enjoying their dress again before it gets packed away forever xx
Our beautiful Floral Fairytale is featured on Rock My Wedding today. Click here to see more. It’s always such a privilege to have work featured when you know how much work goes into pulling a shoot like this together.
My love for Great Lodge in Essex started on my first visit. There is magic in the air which I think comes from it’s history and the fact the owners have been very loyal to the roots of their home and kept every part of their renovations very rural and authentic. It truly is a location that’s beautiful at every turn and has so much variety which is often lacking at many wedding venues. My first visit was in Spring where the ancient orchard was in full bloom and knew then I had to design an editorial shoot inspired by the beauty it withheld at that time.
The creative team who brought my vision to life where just incredible. They are true artists and very passionate about what they create. Handpicked for the beauty of their work and honest way of working, which has depth, texture and intricacy.
The editorial is inspired by the delicacy of apple blossom and the fairy-tale of living in a rural English setting.
