Alternative Weddings – Neon meets Autumn.
Myself and a team of incredible talent within the industry gathered together on a wet, also miserable Sunday to create a magical example of alternative weddings.
Our styled shoot demonstrates community over competition.
We liken ourselves to the avengers, when we assemble we bring creative chaos to the space that we are working with.
The brief behind the shoot was to focus on all things Neon and Alternative weddings.
Mixed with the gorgeous colours of Autumn because who doesn’t love Autumnal hues?!
Whilst the focus was on the models we aimed to create the scene of an after party.
Lynsey worked on the styling, as well as providing props, flowers and an eye for all things rock and roll.
Lynsey worked with me on the English Boho click here to check it out.
Make up was inspired by Alternative Burlesque it was especially important to depict this through hair and make up and Viktoria did that.
Heidi provided a stunning crown, which was an important feature to the shoot.
It included moons & stars giving a nod to how beautiful astrology is.
Sarah created a black cake covered in gold glitter and autumnal flowers, the cake was place in the middle of the table, as a result it became a powerful centre piece.

Lets talk about Group photos.
Group photos, here’s the thing they really do not have to replicate the awkward school photo.
Group photos should be used to relive fond memories so why make them un-natural.
Formal group shots can still be full of emotion and fun.
Your photos are a heirloom which can be passed down your family in generations to come.
When the Bridal parties and Groomsmen let their hair down and have fun in front of the camera you can create some real gold.
Your wedding day is supposed to portray your life and how you are as a couple, being your authentic self in these photos are so important.
Perfect example, Josh and Molly’s photos were full of sass, banter and fun:
Molly & Josh Wedding

Molly & Josh – Mythe Barn Leicester
Where do we start with this absolutely beautiful couple.
Well the setting for the their wedding was at the idyllic Mythe Barn in Leicester, a perfect venue to what was going to be a very exciting day.
The images available to this venue do it little justice, the scenery surrounding the venue is just sublime. You can sit there for hours and be at peace with the surrounding views. It was very obvious from the outset why Molly and Josh chose this venue for this very commemorative day.
The day started off with the build up to the ceremony, within bridal preparation, you can feel the buzz and energy in the air, it was infectious and was a real joy to capture. From passing remarks to how gorgeous Molly looked, to seeing friends and family seeing her in her dress, nothing had prepared them for this moment and most of the family tried to hold back their tears of joy as they saw her.
The ceremony itself was perfection and for the people that where there, they would say this would be an understatement itself!
They embraced their day in the truest form and took everything in their stride, almost to the point they have been prepared for this moment all there life.
The perfect Sunset wedding in a wheat field aware goes to… Molly & Josh!
Bohemian Brides – Styled Shoot
When you put a group of creative individuals in a room or a location you can make real magic happen.
I found myself on a mission trying to source highly regarded suppliers in the industry who are local to leafy Surrey, from the moment I started to discover each person I knew I had to collaborate with them.
We all gathered at Frensham Little Pond in Surrey to create this gorgeous, whimsical, boho styled shoot. Frensham is one of those places that has held a special place in my heart, it harbours so much natural beauty and I have experienced a number of happy memories here.
The main aim of this shoot was to allow all parties to come together to create something quite magnificent.

Rottingdean Windmill East Sussex -Styled Shoot
Firstly, never in my 26 years have I ever experience gail force winds like the ones we battled on the day of this beautiful styled shoot, our willing models Amy and Scott battled the heavy gusts of wind and side ways rain to help us create something extrodinary!
Rottingdean Windmill is located in East Sussex and stands proudly on rolling hills which lead into the coast of East Sussex, we chose this location not only due to its natural beauty, but because it would compliment the style of images we wanted to portray, our main aim was to help inspire Bride and Groom’s to be with any wedding plans they may have!
Most importantly we were fortunate enough to work with some outstanding talent within the wedding industry, the dress was provided by Morgan Davies Bridal, designed by world renowned bridal designer Alon Livne. We used two bouquets designed by Jessica Eliza Flowers one being a cascading arrangement and the second boquet was full of shape and texture.

Charlotte & Cameron – Treehouse Point Seattle
If ever there was a wedding that was straight out a story book it would be Charlotte and Cameron’s.
Treehouse Point in Seattle was built by the Treehouse Master himself, Pete Nelson! To say I was starstruck was a bit of a understatement.
Now where to begin.. Charlotte worked and lived in London and Cameron moved to London and was originally from Vancouver, one year later they both live in New York and started to plan the wedding of their dreams in Seattle.
The Seattle based wedding boasted many intricate details, from the Pronovias dress to the wine bottles named after them (this was pretty impressive they managed to source these wines from local wineries).
I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do!
