2014 styled shoots {year review}

It is a real treat to work with some of the wedding suppliers I love on styled shoots for their websites, and 2014 was a great year for that. I’ve selected a handful of images from five special projects that I worked on in 2014, which might serve a inspiration for my brides and grooms-to-be and perhaps introduce to you some of the suppliers I love and recommend.

Flowers by Passionunderline

Flowers by Passion, based in the glorious Somerset hills, create the most romantic flowers and I have had the pleasure of working with them at many weddings. Jo asked me to photograph some of their bouquets for their new website, and to spend a day at the barns was a joy.


Vicky Rowe {debut collection}


Vicky Rowe is a dear friend of mine who I met back in 2010 when she was making cloche hats displayed in a fashion show I covered. In 2014, she brought out her very own range of unique intricately hand embellished wedding dresses evocative of the 1920’s and 1930’s but with a more contemporary feel for today’s bride. We had an incredible shoot at the Midland Hotel in Morecambe. See more of the shoot here and please explore Vicky’s incredible creations on her site.


Jo Barnes Vintage


Jo Barnes creates beautiful bridal accessories, entirely by hand to her unique and award winning designs. In the summer of 2014, we met to capture her newest Pearl Collection of bridal accessories to coincide with the launch of her new website. Her pieces are of exceptional quality, and I really enjoyed wearing one of her bespoke creations on my own wedding day.


Ruffles & Rockstuds {blog}


I have known Hawke & Hughes, the London wedding planners behind the Ruffles & Rockstuds blog for some years. We have collaborated on shoots before their Hawke & Hughes brand, and so when they came to me asking if I would be involved in their style inspiration blog, I knew it would be a lot of fun. Here are a few of my favourite images from the shoots we have done last autumn and winter.


A Gardener’s Year at South Farm {blog}


I have been visiting South Farm regularly for the last four years to document their gardens, smallholding and kitchen recipes for their A Gardener’s Year at South Farm blog. Being very keen on growing my own vegetables and making delicious meals with them, I have very much enjoyed documenting from ground to plate at one of my favourite wedding venues. Here are a few moments from my visits this year.
