I then took part in The Wedding Academy with Flourish & Prosper alongside a cast of industry heavyweights like Kat Williams from Rock n Roll Bride, Marianne Taylor, Sinclair Sellars from Maids to Measure and many more. It was eye opening, there is just so much business know how that wedding industry entrepreneurs have yet to take on board. From blogging to social media and PR, we covered it all!
There will be more photography workshops this year that are already making my creative brain explode with excitement, but first and foremost I am collaborating with so much more amazing talent at The Styling Workshop 2015 hosted by Flourish & Prosper on 27th April 2015 at the ever so fabulous Aynhoe Park in Oxfordshire.
So what’s it all about?
This one day workshop is an exclusive “how to” for wedding creatives looking to gain amazing images for their portfolio and increase coverage with magazines and blogs in order to attract more of the clients they’d like to work with. We show you how to build a beautiful tablescape, style + pose models, and arrange pretty details – as well as hands on styling sessions where you’ll get top tips and have your own creations photographed by a leading European fine art photographer. PLUS a chance to get your portfolio reviewed and a super lovely gift.

This event is of most interest to stylists, planners and photographers planning their own editorial shoots – but also any other wedding creatives with products or services to sell, from cake bakers to prop hire. We’re encouraging all attendees to bring their own items to style with our guidance, and will be giving everyone a little styling homework (we promise it’s fun!).

These images were taken by Taylor Barnes Photography as part of the Illuminated Collective workshop last year, who will also be speaking at The Styling Workshop on 27th April 2015. It was styled by me with an amazing cast of vendors you can find below, and is in the current issue of You & Your Wedding Magazine available in shops now.
