As the nights are drawing in and the mornings get nippier; warm autumn colours, crunchy leaves, wooly hat and scarfs and cosy nights in keep me smiling. The ever changing scenery gets my photography mojo going and when you get to work with friends in this industry, a days styling doesn’t feel like work.
Oakenham farm is a venue just outside the little village of Ugborough. Shelley Hutcheon opens her home for craft workshops, away days and lunches, and the farm buildings across the road play host to weddings and music festivals throughout the year. As a working farm there is endless amounts of inspiration, quirky spaces and different backgrounds to play with and when the weather is on your side it’s a photographers dream.
Here's some photos of a lovely afternoon spent photographing beautiful autumnal wedding styling. Cacti and succulents with delicate lace, gold and silver trinkets with rustic wood, seasonal bright bold pumpkins with all things autumn and some elegant barn styling by Nic Courtney, combined with Shelley’s floristry.
