I’m very excited to share with you something that I’ve been working behind the scenes on. I co-ordinated and styled a creative wedding inspiration shoot at Aynhoe Park with the fantastic team at Her Lovely Heart, who are a brand new UK based wedding photographer agency, which has been created by renowned wedding photographer, Marianne Taylor.
The concept behind Her Lovely Heart is to manage and represent wedding photographers [that's Adam, Liz, Nick and Sophie] so that they are able to spend more time on developing their craft and doing the things they love about photography, and less time on areas such as marketing, admin, accounting and paperwork – which let’s face it as business owners it can be as much work as doing the job itself!
The shoot came about as Marianne Taylor has for a few years teamed up with the talented florist Steph from Fairynuff Flowers to do a mini inspiration shoot to get the creative juices flowing. This year, however it got a little bigger [well, actually much bigger] as it was a great opportunity for all the photographers at Her Lovely Heart to all come together to shoot, create, and play with a little added creative styling, stunning backdrops and some rather beautiful muses.
We created three loose themes for the HLH team to shoot [we don't do things by halves!] which were; Candy, Romantic and Glitter, all of which were based around the concept of a creative nail art design which was then translated into each look across all the elements such as the flowers, the make up, hair and overall styling.
We were fortunate enough to work with an amazing team of talented wedding suppliers and designers [see below credits] who helped translate the concept into reality. Here is a peek behind the scenes at what we got up to at the amazing Aynhoe Park with the first full inspiration instalment ‘Candy’ coming up on the blog later today so do check back at 2pm! Gold star if you can spot the stylist…
Having met and worked with the team [they have 'lovely' in the company name for a reason], they are all passionate about story telling, and with the support from Marianne and Her Lovely Heart they have grown to provide their own style and service but always documenting the love. If you want your wedding photography to create a genuine and heart-warming legacy, Her Lovely Heart will be for you.
