A Vintage Winters Tale

Last October Lauren from Grace & Gable approached me to shoot a behind-the-scenes film of a vintage winter-inspired bridal shoot. She told me that Adam from Rock My Wedding had recommended me, which was a pretty awesome complement to get. From the initial e-mail I was interested and it sounded like it would be fun and a good opportunity to do something a little different without the pressures of a wedding day. After a few conversations with Lauren and Adam from I was sold.

On the day of the shoot it was a bitterly cold morning but the sky was clear and the sun was making an appearance….perfect conditions for a frosty winter styled photo shoot. The location was the not-very-easy-to-find Wyre forest in Shropshire, it was a beautiful backdrop that added that little bit of magic to an already amazing set-up. The photographer for the day was Ann-Kathrin Koch ,she was a joy to work with and captured the day perfectly! In fact everyone I met on the day was lovely and I would love to work with them all again.

I have added a selection of the images Ann captured and at the bottom of the post is a full list of all the people that were involved with the shoot.

  1. You did a fantastic job on this Simon - great to meet you on the day too.

  2. I so love your video!
    Whilst I was slightly sceptical about seeing my own face on screen (and I still cringe at the bloody airguns I felt were completely necessary to make my point) I am so happy we have this as a reminder of the day.
    The music is the champagne-flavoured icing on top. With glitter on it.

    Also I enjoyed working with you a lot, you were so relaxed and completely unobtrusive to have around - would love to work on a wedding with you.

    As I said to Lauren the other day: I wish we could do this every day.
