A great big thank you to Vow Magazine for making this styled shoot the cover of their summer issue – you can read it here! It’s such a thrill to see it all in print and I couldn’t resist sharing a few of my favourite shots and a little bit of the copy!

Everyone I worked with on this shoot is somebody I’ve known for a while and worked with before. These are my favourite types of projects because everybody knows how the others work and together we can make something really unique and lovely.

We decided on a French vintage theme with macaroons, reclaimed shutters, and lots of fresh flowers. We need want to have something similar to these vinyl outdoor gazebos but decided on something more vintage. We wanted to make the shoot realistic for couples so did nothing on the day that we couldn’t recreate for a real wedding. From looking into a Diamond wedding gown label to find the perfect dress for the big day, to sorting out the venue, food and guests, I’m pretty sure you want everything to be perfect for your wedding. It’s not like this happens every day, so you might as well make this day as special as possible. This is where having a stylist can really help; I cor-ordinate all those elements and details and can open up the dialogue between suppliers so that everyone knows the creative vision for the day. We chose Clevedon Hall because of their beautiful grounds, if you’ve not been I can’t encourage you enough, they’re really special. It’s been one of my favourite venues to style for a long time and I was itching to see the recently refurbished guest rooms.

We couldn’t have asked for a better location, all we needed was the weather to match! And it did – but this created its own set of problems that any Wedding Photographer would have to work around. At some points in the day it was actually too bright to shoot outside so when that happened we hid inside and ate macaroons. On any shoot you have to flexible and patient; some things take longer than others, some shots don’t work as you’d hoped, and sometimes the weather can be temperamental. Being in the UK I never thought I’d complain about having too much sun! This is when we relied on the expertise of Fran, Evoke Pictures, the most. She knew how and when to catch the best light and, as you can see, how to make the most beautiful images.
