A few months ago I teamed up with a handful of very talented suppliers within the wedding industry to create a beautiful artisan & eco friendly styled shoot at the stunning Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester. And what a shoot it turned out to be!
Organised and styled by Fi from Corky & Prince, we wanted to create an entire shoot based around the eco-friendly bride. I can’t take any credit whatsoever for the organisation that went into this shoot but I can say that as the photographer the pressure is definitely on when collaborating with so many incredible wedding professionals. I’m the one who has the job of telling the story and making sure everyone has beautiful imagery to walk away with at the end of the working day.
But actually, with a beautiful setting such as the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester and some amazing products, my job is really all about finding the best light to photograph in and that was pretty easy given the glorious sunny day we were blessed with. The shoot was split into two parts– with these images featuring in the first part of the day. The second lot of images are actually my favourite and I will get round to blogging them ASAP so bear with me.
This is what Fi had to say about her vision for the shoot:
The warm tones of coral coloured roses were refined with a complimentary palette of neutrals including carnations, stocks (smelt heavenly!) and the ethereal ranunculus ‘butterfly ariadne’ with its soft tones of vanilla and cream. We added key motifs, ferns and fuzzy peaches to add texture and evoke an English summer’s day.
Our aim was to create a classic English wedding vibe in the grounds of the beautiful Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester. We wanted to showcase a hand-picked team of local suppliers who all have a distinctive ethical, sustainable or artisan dimension to their work to show that you can have a sublime wedding with a team who share your values.
