Behind The Scenes Of Planted With Light 2014

I hosted my wedding photography workshop, Planted with Light in NZ at my parents yesterday! This is the third year I’ve done the workshop, we had such an amazing day. Before my workshops, I always get so nervous…mainly about the speaking, as it doesn’t come completely naturally for me. But, like every other year, when I’m talking about a topic I am so passionate about, I really enjoy myself, and my nerves fade away.

I was so blessed to have the help of so many amazing people yesterday, without their help I doubt the workshop would happen! I need to firstly thank my parents, who so generously opened their home. Mum and my sister Lydia made all of the food, and every year they get asked for recipes! Needless to say, it was delicious. Lydia also took all of these behind the scenes photos, and did many other things to help me make the workshop a success.

Casey from The Heirloom generously gave up her day to style a gorgeous table and other bits and pieces of beauty for us to photograph. The talented Jess from Honeysuckle Rose created the incredible florals. These girls were amazing! If you want a chilled out stylist and florist for your wedding, who are also ridiculously talented…look no further! Carl and Fiona generously also gave up their time to model for us, they were such naturals, and SO cute together.

Last, but certainly not least, I have to thank each of the 15 workshop attendees who came to Planted with Light, believed in me and ultimately made the day what it was. I can’t thank you all enough, love you all!! xxx
