Intimate and Adventurous Tipi Wedding Inspiration in Cornwall

If you've been following my work and my blog for a little while, you'll know that I love all things outdoorsy. Cornwall is one of the most beautiful places to live (I think!), and I feel so lucky to get to produce imagery in such an inspiring part of the world. When it comes to weddings, my feelings are much the same; I love outdoor, simple, intimate weddings! So when Sam from Wild Tipi asked me if I would be interested in producing a styled shoot for her with their amazing wedding tipi's, I jumped at the chance! 

Wild Tipi is a newly established family run business based in Cornwall, offering giant tipi's and smaller bell tents to couples getting married. These tents are beautiful, enormous, and can be placed pretty much anywhere with enough space to hold them! They're much like me in that they have a heart for nature, so we were always going to work well together. 

These images were shot in April, which just so happened to be the sunniest month we'd had for a very long time. It was warm, the flowers were blooming, and everyone was in a glorious mood. We all had the most amazing time playing in the tipi's, climbing through the woods nearby, and dreaming up future weddings within the tipi's themselves. 

I can't begin to thank the team from this shoot enough; every single one of them is an immensely talented vendor; if you're currently planning your wedding and are on the hunt for a specific vendor, definitely take a look at these ones! 

I've also got to say a big thank you to Rock My Wedding for sharing these images on their website; their support always means the world. :)

Elisha At Caerhays Castle

 

I've been trying to write this blog post for weeks.

It's been so hard to find the words to accompany this editorial, simply because these are some of my favourite images for a while. I definitely love what I've been producing for the past 12 months or so, but sometimes everything in a day is just so perfect, it leaves me feel giddy inside for days. This shoot was one of those. Ione and I had wanted to go back to Caerhays Castle for a shoot ever since we shot there last year. So, when the day finally came and we were faced with torrential rain, it broke our hearts a little bit. But we powered on through, and shot in my home studio (those images are coming soon!) and rearranged our shoot for another day.

I'm so glad that we did.

After producing and shooting a lot of very big editorials with large teams, we had a craving for something a bit simpler: just Ione, a model, and myself. You may recognise Elisha, our model for this shoot, from some images I did with her in November last year! 

When the shoot day arrived, it was sunny, warm, and as you can see, the flowers were out in full force in the gardens. I don't think I've ever been so happy in my entire life! 

These images come with no real concept, no real story, and no real ambition. They're just us creating, and have a tun of fun whilst doing it. I truly hope that you love these images as much as I do! 


On a totally seperate note, I'm currently taking books for commercial photoshoots for August onwards, so if you're a brand or business looking to have new imagery captured for your brand, get in touch! I'd love to hear from you.

One of my favourite things to do, above all else, is work with my friends. Not everyone is lucky enough to do that, but I'm so grateful that on many occasions, I am! One of those friends is Jayne, the designer and founder of Tom Lane. Jayne and I met at university, she studied fashion design, and I studied fashion photography. We struck a friendship, and throughout our time at uni, worked together on numerous photoshoots to photograph her creations!

Thankfully, our friendship after university continued, and when Jayne asked me to shoot images of her brand for her, I was thrilled. We worked together last year, and you can see those images here! This year, Jayne has launched incredible sweaters for both men and women. I can't begin to tell you how soft and snuggly these are! I tried one of them on, and it took all of my willpower to take it off and give it back.

One thing I wanted to briefly touch on was the process behind the planning of this shoot, in the hopes that it might help other brands looking to have their images shot! I think that many people can become overwhelmed by the idea of planning a photoshoot, but there really isn't a need to panic. What might seem like a huge task, is actually fairly straight forward, and when you communicate well between photographer and client, I don't see how you can ever have a problem. 

The key here is communication from both parties. That means from the brand or client, letting the photographer know exactly what kind of images you're after, educating them on your brand values, showing examples of their own work that you've liked, examples of work you've seen online (ie. Pinterest/Instagram) that you like, and would like to use as inspiration.

Equally, it's important for the photographer to communicate what they can and cannot do. For example, Jayne asked me if I would be able to photograph the garments flat on the floor for e-commerce images. I agreed, knowing that I could do it, but explained that there was quite a lot of skill involved in these kinds of images, and it was a style of imagery that I might not be the best at. By setting expectations right from the start, I took the pressure off myself, and ensured that even if the images looked awful (which they didnt!), Jayne new that this wasn't my forté. What she could count on me for though, was the lifestyle and studio images you see here.

I hope that you love these images as much as I do! If you're looking for an amazing new brand to shop from, I can't recommend Tom Lane enough. A purely British brand (everything is made in the UK), and of such high quality, you really can't go wrong.
