A ‘behind the scenes’ look at our hit featured Punk Inspired Shoot at The Barn at Upcote

When Erin at Way Out Wedding first approached me about styling a shoot together, I was absolutely delighted. Erin published one of my first ever Inspirational Editorials and has been a beautiful supporter of my work ever since. I can definitely say she has had a hand in the direction I have now taken my work, showing me that ‘out there’ and just being yourself really do have a place in this industry. Thank you Erin. MWAH!!

We had no clue what we wanted to do! So met for coffee, bashed around various themes, and by the time we left, an idea had taken root. I suggested The Barn at Upcote as they were so lovely and supportive the last time I worked there. Unfortunately it ended up raining HARD all day so we couldn’t venture outside for pictures at all!! I immediately contacted Emma at Frock It as I knew she was the woman for the job! Emma, along with Kelly, make, embellish and design the most unique items of clothing and as soon as I told her our idea she was off and running! I then remembered that Jan at Atelier 19 had expressed an interest in working with me. With her award winning embroidery work i knew we were onto a good thing. After that I stepped back and watched the master stylist, Erin, at work. She pulled together a team of suppliers and models from all 4 corners of the UK and all the sneak peeks popping into our private facebook group were getting us all very excited!

Please enjoy first the ‘Behind The Scenes’ look at how one of these shoots come together, then the ‘Directors Cut’ of the finished images! If you would like to see our full feature on Want That Wedding, please click here.
