The idea for this styled shoot was based around the Danish concept of HYGGE (pronounced hoo-guh).

When I was planning the details my aim was for whoever looked at the photographs to get an overwhelming sense of contentment and coziness. You know those “ahhh” moments when you have a sip of hot chocolate, put on a new pair of warm woolly socks, wrap yourself up tightly in a knitted nanny blanket or receive cuddles and kisses from someone you truly love…yeah all those feels!

Hygge is very much about embracing simplicity and authenticity. Ashridge Barn has been restored so beautifully with lots of wonderful original features being left exposed. The rustic decor and mixture of textures throughout the room add to its charm and worked so well with the shoots theme.

For the colour scheme I chose to use soft greys and pale pinks, which gave a lovely modern and contemporary feel as

Disco Fever…

What a way to start the week… we have this incredible collaboration between the very talented Camera Hannah and our very own alternative bespoke dress designer and Mr & Mrs Unique supplier, Jo from The Couture Company to share with you.

This edgy bridal shoot combines my love of creative photography, disco and glitter and makes references to fashions of the 1970’s and Studio 54. Having previously featured their last project (which you can see here,) I knew it would be something I had to share with you! Over to Hannah to tell us more…

I’ve been having a love affair with disco music this year, from the over-played classics that I’ve been finally actually listening to and falling in love with, to rare vintage tracks and new disco-infused indie music. This obsession got me thinking about creating some disco wedding inspiration for alternative couples.

The aesthetic was inspired by the fashions of the 70’s, Studio 54, with a modern edge and visualising the sound of the best disco music: glittering layers, high energy and lots of attitude. If you’re thinking this all sounds like a ridiculously complicated vision, then you’re absolutely right. Luckily I had Jo from The Couture Company to work with, who just completely got it and ran with the idea, bringing …

I love the concept of forbidden, crazy love and finding your soulmate. It’s that connection that is so magical and very special that is so exciting! I wanted to show the story of two traveller girls who are living alternative life who decide one day to elope and to declare their love to each other on a top of a hill, running away from pressures that comes with living in big cities and organising a wedding.

Inspiration for this shoot started with Esther from Frock Shop – dress designer and maker – who showed me this beautiful tartan fabric that inspired her to design a dress. Esther asked me if I would be interested in photographing the dress but the moment I saw the fabric I knew I wanted to make the fabric the star- it was so gorgeous! We both wanted to do something different and this tartan fabric was what we both needed to start
