Boho Coralation – Coral, Gold wedding shoot

As a photographer I work on a variety of different themed shoots. However, there are always some shoots that stick out in my mind. One perfect example of this was a Boho Coral, Gold wedding shoot that took place at Shottle Hall, Derbyshire. There are a number of reasons why this shoot will stay with me and why it has become one of my favourite ones to organize and work on.

The Venue

There is a wealth of beautiful venues up and down the country, and I am lucky, in the most part to be able to see plenty of these during my time working as a photographer. One thing that I know is incredibly important to couples is to get amazing photographs to keep and treasure from their special day. However, they may worry that they are going to be struck down with bad weather which may ruin their plans.
One of the best things about Shottle Hall is that not only there are some amazing outdoor locations where photos can be taken, but also, if the weather isn’t as kind as you hoped, there are plenty of stunning places to take photos indoors too.

The suppliers

When it comes to putting together a wedding photoshoot, one of the most important aspects has to be the suppliers. Suppliers are those who make a wedding photo shoot (and often help to bring a couple’s dreams to life when it comes to their wedding). I was so lucky to be able to bring together such talented suppliers.
It was fascinating to see how these amazing suppliers brought a fantastic array of ideas to life. I saw new ways to use balloons, silk ribbons and even wedding biscuits too. Which just goes to show how inspirational it can be from watching others.

The theme

The idea behind this Boho gold coral wedding shoot theme was, what I like to call, Coralation Boho. Coral, golds and greys mixed with the rustic charm that only Boho style can bring. It really was such a pleasure to capture images of the models in these styles.

1950’s Vintage Makeup – Bridal photo shoot

makeup LOGO

On this weeks blog post I have planned to speak to all you lovely brides about 1950’s Vintage Makeup.

I did this Photoshoot with Elena back last summer and it was a shoot that has a very classic feel. It was held at the beautiful Shottle Hall Venue on a gorgeous summers day.
For this shoot we aimed at doing a 1950’s look which complimented the dress from ‘Baroque Couture’. From the soft round neckline to the lace arms, it fitted in perfect with the 1950s theme.

Fashion shoot

A couple of weeks ago I attended a fashion photo seminar of Louisa Sumner organised by the MPA. Thanks a lot to Louisa for very interesting seminar, during which we had an excellent model and perfectly selected outfit for shooting with heritage buses. Here are some shots that I took during that seminar.

Keep in touch!
