Styal Lodge bridal shoot…. {Part I}

April 2nd, 2012

As I pulled up to the location, I knew that this photoshoot was going to be amazing….

Styal Lodge is a fabulous wedding venue, and Emmylou of Lily Bud Cupcakes had arranged an amazing styled wedding shoot, with some of the wedding industry’s leading suppliers.

I was super chuffed to be part of it, working with so many fab people and getting the chance to shoot alongside fellow photographer Sue Westwood-Ruttledge.


Emmylou wanted everybody to relax, have fun, and enjoy all the yummy food – just like they would at a real wedding!

Even though I give directions when I’m shooting, and my style of photography is pretty relaxed anyway, I did find myself approaching this shoot quite differently to how I normally would…..

Although I gave certain directions, my main aim was that everybody acted as natural as possible. So, for the majority of the shoot, I pretty much gave them all free reign and just let everybody make their own fun!

All the girls looked stunning!

I love this last image…..

With massive thank to Emmylou for asking me to be part of this shoot, and everyone else involved. ….such an amazing group of people 🙂
