Styled Shoot at Wakehurst Place, Sussex

Every so often I like to gather up a bunch of local suppliers and collaborate on a ‘styled shoot’. As well as being a great way for each business to showcase their products, it also gives us a chance to nurture our creative sides and network with like minded people.

In return for the use of their products or services, each company involved gets a copy of the images taken, which are ideal for them to use in promotions or on their websites.

After meeting with Katie, Wakehurst’s wedding co-ordinator, she kindly agreed to let us use one of the grand drawing rooms in the mansion house and I set to work contacting people I had met through weddings and fairs, to see who would be keen to get involved.

The end result was an amazing day in April 2014, with Nick and I both photographing a number of different set-ups, each with a slightly different look and feel.

Unfortunately the weather wasn’t too kind, so we had to do most of our shoot indoors, which was such a shame as Wakehurst has endless beautiful gardens and open vistas. The skies cleared a little as the day progressed and we managed to get out and about for our last few captures of the day.

We worked with some fantastic people who all helped make the day the success it was. We also had our session featured on the ‘Love Sussex Weddings’ blog.
