I’m so pleased to share with you the images from my second Fine Art Wedding Workshop that we held at the beautiful Lost Orangery in Wiltshire (a DREAM wedding venue if you haven’t booked one yet, it’s a hidden gem of Italy in the English countryside!)

I am such a huge fan of teaching how to shoot weddings with a Fine Art Style, it is always such a huge honour to share all the things I have learned over years of shooting beautiful weddings and to see how much difference it makes to other photographer’s businesses. Also, as a major bonus, I pretty much get to plan and style how I would create my own wedding (hello flower filled boat) with all my favourite suppliers if I did it all over again! (Quick note to my husband here, I have no plans to ha!) 

p.s I’m planning some more workshops this year, possibly more 1-2-1 style so if you’re interested, just send me a quick message here :)

Best Fine Art Wedding Workshop UK

We wanted to create something out of this world for our attendees but it was important that although creating beautiful content for them, they would also leave with real, honest and practical knowledge and advice that would enable them to shoot EVERY real wedding with this beautiful approach. 

It was important to me that we used a real couple, not models, to really help teach how to pose real couples at their best and most natural and flattering angles. For this reason, we used one of our own previous wedding couples, Luke and Jessica, who were absolute stars for us!

I can only imagine what it must have felt like having so many cameras pointing at you when the last time you were in front of one was your own wedding day! :) It was  such a joy for me to get to relive doing that again with them as as you can see, they were amazing!

Not to sound like an oscars acceptance speech, but I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all our Attendees who came to our Fine Art Wedding Workshop and invested in learning from us. You were all perfect, so sweet, willing to learn and supportive of each other. We’ve built such a nice, supportive community with all our attendees who continue to help each other to this day with so many wonderful friendships cemented. 

I plan on holding another workshop this year so if you’d like to be added to our email list, please do get in touch here

“Eek!!! What do we not love!? This was our one area that required extensive research.

When looking for photographers in England, it was very difficult for me to find a photographer that embodied what I was looking for. Clean, romantic, natural and classy. Many photographers looked like they over edited.

Holly was the only photographer I found that I liked. (Literally the only one, thank God she was available!!!)”

Ripley Castle Wedding in Yorkshire

When girls are little, and they dream of a Fairytale wedding, I’m pretty sure this wedding is exactly what they picture.

To say the day was romantic would be a complete understatement. 

It was a huge honour for me to photogrpahy this Ripley Castle wedding in Harrogate, Yorkshire. Especially as the Bride Gabrielle is a wedding planner in the USA and know her thing when it came to creating a dream wedding day.

It was a real honour that she chose me to capture her wedding as she wanted her day captured through some beautiful fine art wedding photography to be able to relive it is the most dreamy, soft and romantic way possible and it really wasn’t hard for me to be able to do as it really was a perfect,happy and romantic wedding day.

The day stared with so much excitement with the girls. Everyone had travelled over from America to witness Gabrielle and Arthur have their dream English Castle wedding. 

Hats off to them both for organising everything from so far away! They wanted to celebrate Gabrielle’s family’s english heritage and they went for it big time. Arthur surprised her by wearing top hat and tails and the full works. And just wait until you see his reaction to her letter to him on the morning of the wedding!

Perfection…

If there was ever a prize for ‘Best Wife’s Gift to Her New Husband Award’, Melanie would win it hands down. I remember forgetting that on my own wedding day, in amongst the chaos of planning a wedding, but Melanie not only remembered, she bought her new Husband Philip a vintage car! I feel I have some making up to do ;)

This beautiful wedding took place at the exquisite venue of Hedsor House, a perfect location for any UK bride who loves the light and airy look of fine art wedding photography. The venue was beautifully neutral and filled with lots of lovely natural light and really added to Melanie’s romantic vision for her wedding day.

She chose beautiful dusty grey tulle dresses for her bridesmaids and Philip looked every part the dashing beau in his tuxedo, with matching groomsmen too. 

Philip is from Sweden and they elegantly incorporated both of their nationalities and heritage into the day with Melanie wearing a traditional Swedish Midsummer flower crown, all the men queuing to kiss the bride during their meal if the groom left the room and Melanie’s Dad learning Swedish as a surprise during part of his speech :)

It was a lovely wedding to capture and an honour to capture these precious memories for them forever!

Jessica and Aaron designed a beautiful fine art wedding day to share with their friends and family at the West Mill in Derbyshire.

I just loved Jessica’s classic Hollywood bombshell look, she just looked radiant all day.

They made much of the beautiful copper details themselves, including that amazing copper flower arch and effortlessly threaded it throughout the day, even to the copper detailing of Lancaster and Cornish bouquet ribbon.

They were a perfect math for each other, and the beautiful golden light at the end of the day only helped illuminate their love for each other through the photography.

Hope you enjoy!

This was such a beautiful venue and a really great wedding.

We flew out from Yorkshire to the beautiful Dordogne region of France to capture this wedding day.

Both Bride and Groom worked on yachts in monaco and were free spirits, they had built a business together travelling the world and had planned their wedding day together, they were truly soul mates and it was a joy to be involved in their wedding day.

We met for the first time the day before the wedding and we instantly got on, they had followed my work and they really trusted that I would capture their wedding day in the fine art photography style that I am known for.

The Chateau was picture perfect everywhere you looked and made me love the French rustic style even more than I already do :)

From the moment we drove through the area we knew it was going to be one of our highlights for 2016 and it more than lived up to our expectations.

We feel so fortunate getting to travel the world and capture days like this for a living, what a dream! Amber and Byron we wish you a lifetime of happiness!
