Wellington Barn Wedding Shoot

When we shoot weddings, we love seeing what our couples come up with for their choice in venue, décor, what the colour scheme is and see what they value most.

Recently we had the opportunity to do something very similar. In the wedding world, this is called a styled shoot. It allows us to work and network with other wedding suppliers in the wedding industry, to organise and produce the design that we have in mind.

Since our rebrand in February we haven’t been able to make new work for you all to see because of the pandemic, so we took the opportunity to set up a Styled Shoot.

I’ve never organised something like this before, and it turns out it is a lot harder than I thought! But I got to planning and finding other suppliers who liked our theme for the day and wanted to help out in some way.

Our theme was rustic Luxe boho. Kind of a mix of genres, but something that we wanted to have the challenge of putting together and having in our portfolio.

I wanted to make sure that our Bride and Groom were a real couple for this shoot, as I wanted it to feel as real as I could. We found the lovely couple Harry & Dominika from Bristol. They are such a lovely couple and perfect for the look we wanted.

Our venue is Wellington Barn near Calne, a stunning barn conversion nestled in a wildflower meadow, simply stunning, and converted to a high standard, whilst retaining some of its original features. It was such a beautiful location for our shoot.

I wanted to make our day feel just like a real wedding day, so I wanted to make sure we included all the right people to make this come together and work for us.

Getting ready Back In April of this year, we had the privilege of photographing the wedding of Mike & Katie Shaw. This was a special one for us as it happened in the village we live in, Peasedown St John. I always find it interesting when there is a cross-over between people you see every […]

It only takes a 10th of a second for someone to judge you, your website, your product. In this day and age, people do judge a book by its cover. 

Today more than ever having a professional headshot is almost expected. Remember this is the first point of contact for your customers and presenting yourself in your best light is so vital.

Alright, let’s get started! Ok maybe you shouldn’t completely ignore your photographer, but the majority of your photos should be about the two of you. When you look at your wedding and engagement photos, you’ll want to remember how you felt that day, not how you were posed.
Unless you’re a professional model, constantly interacting with the camera will cause you to look stiff and unnatural. interacting with your spouse will make your true self come to life.

Our first tip is to take into consideration any extra time-consuming details that may occur at the beginning of the day while you are getting ready. Do you have a gift to open? Are you exchanging letters with your soon to be spouse? Are there any special moments that you want to have with a loved one? Does your dress or tux take an hour to get into? Scheduling time for each of these things will keep you on track and from falling behind.

Allow for more time than you think you will need.
