I am so thrilled to finally share the photographs from this photo shoot with you! It's been hard keeping the final images to myself for this long, but alas here they are. For this photo shoot I had the absolute pleasure of working with a few talented people and business owners, from wedding dress designers, to camper van hires, we all helped make this photo shoot come to life.
If you read my behind the scenes post, you will know that this photo shoot was inspired by festivals, bohemian and vintage styles with a hint of adventure. If you know me well, you will know that I'm a lover of festivals, flowers in hair, and using beautiful landscapes for photo shoots, so this photo shoot was a delight to organise!

I've been sharing a couple of photo's from this shoot on Facebook, but couldn't wait much longer to write a blog post about photographing the lovely Donna Jones' work. We photographed aprons, tote bags, cards and cushions in Homewood Bound and the Sugarplum Tearooms. I love going into Homewood Bound and the Sugarplum Tearooms, so photographing such pretty products in this location was a delight! We played with colours, props and made a kitchen scenery in the shop come to life. It was a fun day working with Donna Jones and Hazel, owner of the thriving shop and busy tearooms, and we were constantly bouncing ideas off each other.
What a day. I am so excited to release the final photo’s from my styled bridal photo shoot, it was such a great way to get to know fellow entrepreneurs in Wales and work together to make this photo shoot come to life.
Rewind to December 2015, I was reflecting on the year, and thinking of new ways I can work with like minded creatives in the area, and how to make my business grow. The focus of this photo shoot was to work with businesses in Wales, I was expecting to keep it fairly local. I was wrong, I had entrepreneurs from the small town of Ruthin, all the way to Cardiff involved in this photo shoot. I was ecstatic, I was planning something where businesses all over this little country were getting involved! I have lived in Wales, grown up in Wales, I even attended University in Wales, nowhere else feels more like home to me. Using a Welsh landscape for the backdrop of this photo shoot felt right, we headed to Bod Petryal, a peaceful location with a small lake and forestry. The theme of this styled bridal photo shoot had hints of bohemia, adventure, and festival themes (pretty bunting, a VW camper van and floral headdresses were involved).
Fast forward to March, I finally had this photo shoot planned and it was the day of the shoot. We got Helena ready at Tommy’s Hair Salon where the girls started to work their magic. The curls were just the tip of the iceberg, what hairstyles came next were beautiful.
