A Woodland Inspired Styled Shoot

A few months ago I had an exciting message waiting in my inbox from a very talented lady, Lianne Gray Photography who was looking for a planner to help put together a woodland inspired wedding shoot. After meeting in person and feeling so enthusiastic and excited we got to work in pulling together Lianne’s vision and getting some of the most creative suppliers involved.

I absolutely love being involved in shoots. They do take quite a bit of planning but when you get to collaborate with so much talent in a beautiful woodland venue it is completely worth it!

The venue for this dream of a shoot was Escrick Park in York. I hadn’t come across this place before and wow, what a perfect location for an outdoor wedding! With plenty of space for a marquee, tipi or yurt and a magical woodland area already set up for a ceremony, you have bags of space to create your dream wedding.

When organising a shoot you have a rough idea on what you think it will look like but after creating endless vision boards both on Pinterest and in my head I couldn’t believe how breathtaking it all looked!

For this photoshoot Lianne chose to shoot during ‘golden hour’ and I can see why. The lighting was just absolutely beautiful and so romantic.

It was such a magical evening and I really hope I get to work with this talented group of creatives again in the future! Lots more photos to be shared over the coming months along with a fabulous feature, exciting stuff!

As I finish writing this blog post I have just had the pleasure in collaborating with Lianne again on another shoot, boho style! I just love working with this lady, we get on so well and she is a dream to work with. Check out my social media channels for sneak peek photos!
