Creative Headshot Photography at Virginias Vintage Hire
When Ginny asked me to produce some creative headshot photography and banner images for the new VVH website earlier in the year, I was absolutely delighted.
I love photographing editorials and wedding business branding. It’s a slower pace and not quite as euphoric as a wedding day! But it’s awesome to meet new people. And it’s especially lovely to meet the people behind a small creative business you’ve only met on the web or in emails.
I had already loved photographing Virginias Vintage Hire furniture last year for this collaboration with Sassi Holford. So it was really lovely to meet the faces and personalities behind this successful Devon business.
Ginny & Greg started Virginias Vintage Hire through a love of simple, effortless, stylish living. They have a great emotional connection to the business and their fantastic team. This connection was completely evident at the shoot and in the imagery we created.
The couple shop and source products as if they were furnishing their own event. From sofas to urns to reclaimed French shutters, they are personally involved in all the buying decisions. This ensures that each new piece continues to exude the simple, understated style that they love and identify with.
Are you a small creative business interested in exploring whether fresh creative photography is what your brand needs? If so, please get in touch! I offer bespoke options to suit a range of budgets.
The DIY fine art wedding bouquet
Are you a modern bride in need of a fine art wedding bouquet? If so, it is certainly a wonderful idea to consider the DIY route for this special aspect of your day.
By getting along to a one-day workshop, perhaps with your mum or bridesmaids, you’ll learn how to create your own fine art wedding bouquet.
These courses offer fantastic value for money for the fine art bride. It’s one of the recommendations in my guide How to Plan Your Fine Art Wedding which I send out to all my clients when they enquire.
The real cut flower garden
It’s always such a pleasure to hang out with Charlie and her team at The Real Cut Flower Garden. Charlie’s home and garden is a true gem in the heart of rural West Dorset.
A journalist and passionate gardener for 25 years plus, Charlie traded the pen for the trowel and began The Real Cut Flower Garden in 2004. They were the first company in the UK to send out bouquets of entirely home grown flowers nationwide. Four years ago expert Charlie launched her Flower School, and every year she and her team add to the courses on offer.
Real flowers for real brides
I was lucky enough to get along to the bouquet workshop in June – perhaps the UK’s most beautiful month, flower-wise. Here are some photos from the workshop, including the bouquets which I created with Charlie’s beautiful flowers. (How stunning do they look tied up with hand-died silk ribbons from Kate Cullen?)
Of course, if you are totally not the green-fingered type, don’t panic! Charlie can supply all your wedding flowers, home-grown and cut fresh from her garden.
