This Camp Katur wedding was planned, dressed and styled by some incredibly creative individuals and a fantastic introduction to Bedale in North Yorkshire. It was my first time shooting at Camp Katur and I absolutely loved working in the surrounding woodland.
I am massively inspired by nature in my work, particularly the colours and the atmosphere of an outdoor wedding in a woodland setting. There are so many amazing touches at this venue too, the little nature trail to get to the wedding area, the wooden signs and benches and as well as the ethereal clearing where the ceremony takes place. It was March so I wasn’t holding out much hope for the weather, especially with it having rained the day before, but it stayed fine so I could take my time to capture the gorgeous details and the interactions between Maisie and Chris.
The styling by One Stylish Day, cake by Cakes by Yolk and the flowers by Lucy Macnicoll Floral Design just blew me away with their creativity. The whole shoot was inspired by the Kinfolk wedding trend, which seems to me a mixture of vintage wedding style with Hygge, (I could be wrong though!). I loved capturing all of the details though. So much efforts goes into styling at weddings, it is something I take great care to capture for my clients. Even the stationery by Bureau Design looked absolutely incredible and complemented the theme for the shoot.
Glory Days Bridal provided Maisie with an amazing set of dresses to wear and April C worked as the make up artist. Chris and Maisie were incredible as models for the day too. So professional and I was able to easily build a rapport with them to get some images I feel really proud of.
This was my first styled shoot, but I absolutely loved working with the other creatives from the day. I am so lucky to work in an industry with so many talented individuals that inspire me to push and improve myself.
Now I just really want to photograph a real wedding at Camp Katur, or at the very least a woodland wedding. It’s definitely captured my interest.
