Beauty is truth, truth beauty.
– John Keats
This year has been one of the most fulfilling years of my career so far! It has been full of amazing people, distant travels and stunning weddings. Every day has brought new insight and beauty into my world, life as a wedding photographer has brought me so much for which I am truly grateful.
Back in Spring we photographed at the stunning exclusive wedding venue in the Cotwolds, Barnsley House. This amazing wedding location offers the perfect setting for an intimate wedding celebration. It was also the perfect home for my first Illuminated Fine Art Photography and Styling Workshop which I co-hosted with Jessie Thomson with help from Holly of Belle and Beau Photography.
We created a romantic backdrop within the gardens of Barnsley House in which 15 photographers where able to learn, explore and photograph the most delightful styling I have created. The team of suppliers were picked from amongst the best suppliers in the UK and internationally including Kelly Spence, The Rose Shed and stationery from Juliet Grace Designs.
As a fine art photographer who has extensive experience in using analog film cameras I was able to share my knowledge in photographing weddings to appeal to both brides, magazine editors and wedding blogs. Each student in attendance was able to learn how to express their individual style, appealing to aesthetically minded bride.
I was able to use delicate posing with our gorgeous real life couple and bridal model to show how through careful composition and use of natural light you can flatter your subject whilst showing off small details.
I love weddings and showing others how to fulfil their dreams through photography really is the best avenue of work.
Early in 2015 I will be joining Flourish and Prosper for their styling workshop! I am beyond excited to help more in the wedding industry realise their dreams, teaching them how to photograph their supplies, style editorial shoots and design concepts. This will take place on April 27th 2015 at the wonderful Aynhoe Park in Oxford!

Please enjoy looking through my photographs from the workshop, I look forward to seeing them soon in print in You and Your Wedding Magazine.
