Andy and Chan | Fine Art Wedding Photographer | Coombe Lodge Somerset

“Ajouter deux lettres à Paris, c’est le paradis.”

-Jules Renard

This blog post is so long over due… since their wedding Chan and Andy have welcomed their first little one into the world and are living in Paris. But even though a little this wedding still exudes timeless charm and the memories I have of this day seem like yesterday.

Chan looked so stunning along with her maids walking around the grounds of Coombe Lodge, one of my all time favourite venues nestled in the heart of Somerset. She choose two gowns one traditional Thai for her Thai tea ceremony and the other a strapless gown purchased in Paris.

The couple choose this venue as they felt it matched their french theme with its golden stone and art deco interior.

I have been fortunate enough that this wedding has been featured internationally in Elizabeth Anne Designs, Thai blog So Dazzling and most recently in print in You and Your Wedding Magazine.

Hello lovelies, I hope everyone is doing perfectly well on this sunny morning! We have such exciting news that we are launching another Illuminated Collective fine art wedding and styling workshop 🙂 this one day workshop will offer much the same as the last one but with a few added extra’s including motivational talks with practicals tips from Christian and Erica of UK Film Lab and the lovely Sara Russell from Wedding Sparrow.

Sara is also create the whole aesthetic for the day and having full creative input so we can offer each attendee the best fine art styling around, we will be collaborating with Amy of Bo Boutique a master of floral styling… together I am sure they will create wonders!

Both myself and my fellow partner in crime Britt Spring, will be mentoring and lending a hand to all those in attendance during the styled shoot part of the day too. I will be focusing on couple styling and sharing my knowledge on how I use film during a wedding day whilst Britt will be more focused on styling single female models which comes in very useful for those shooting editorials, portraits and brides.

We have created the day to both inspire and educate those who are new to film photography and wanting to extend their services. Film photography is becoming so popular once again with aesthetically driven brides who have a keen eye for beautiful organic images and we want to help everyone in attendance to appeal to those brides more by building strong portfolios.

We will also be sending each attendee home with a luxe goody bags of treats including invaluable notes from UK Film Lab, Sara, Flourish and Prosper and many more.

The workshop will be held in Norfolk, UK on the September 18th 2014. For more information and to book email illuminatedcollective@gmail.com

Below is a reminder of some of the beautiful styling we have created in the past featured on Wedding Sparrow today… (full list of vendors below)

Engagement Preview | Film Wedding Photographer |Fine Art Wedding Photography

To bread I do not ask to teach me
but only not to lack during every day of life.
I don’t know anything about light, from where
it comes nor where it goes,
I only want the light to light up,
I do not ask to the night
explanations,
I wait for it and it envelops me,
And so you, bread and light
And shadow are.

                                   – Pablo Neruda

You can never have too much happy!

Hannah and Steven’s wedding day was a true wedding of happiness… a real celebration! The joining of two happy loving families made for a perfect day celebrated at the lovely Hampton Court House, South East London. Hannah looked exquisite in her lace gown and kept the whole day simple focusing on what what mattered most to her and Steven, having a fun relaxed day with those most closet them. The couple felt the venue was a natural choice for them as it was just on there doorstep and they have fond memories from walks in the grounds surrounding the house.

It was myself and Faye’s first wedding of the season so we where feeling eager and refreshed from having the winter off so we felt blessed to kick it off with such a perfect wedding and thank Hannah and Steven for inviting us to photograph their wedding day!
