At First Blush
A couple of weeks ago we had the pleasure of being featured as the cover story for April’s issue of WED Magazine! See the glorious eight page spread in our previous entry ‘Featured In | Wed Magazine ‘
Upton Barn had always been on my ‘must shoot at’ list, a beautiful family owned barn that’s been lovingly converted to the absolute highest standard, from the wood of the doors to the thick walls and polished concrete floors, it is simply stunning. When I first stepped in I couldn’t have been more excited, it really is a dream to spend time in and when you add to that a secluded walled garden planted with the most exquisite flowers and a lavender planted pathway to where your wedding ceremony can take place, it is a venue that exceeds expectations.
As you can imagine I was over the moon when Clare and Richard at Upton Barn asked us to manage a styled shoot for them. We popped in for a visit one day and after talking through all the wonderful plans it was clear they were keen to work with the best wedding suppliers and had amazing taste! Luckily I knew just the group to bring together! (All listed below) When this group gets together, magic happens and there’s no holding us back!
On shoot day, Clare and I knew exactly how we wanted the finished article to look, Jenny & Jezz were hanging hundreds of bottles and making the most awesome sets, Phillip was wheeling in unbelievable floral designs, let alone then the arrival of accessories, the cake, the outfits…oh just everything! I knew it was going to be epic.
With this group it never feels like work, such a high energy day with such creativity bursting through. To say we were pleased with the results is an understatement. We did however have to keep it under wraps for many months, because of timing of the shoot and the look but I’m so excited to have seen all the hard work pay off with a front cover, and finally this spring we are delighted to share it all!
Team Creative Upton – thank you so much, you know how much I love you all, thank you for your time, creativity and support. Not only for coming together to produce this gorgeous inspiring shoot, but for making it a fun fab day!
