It’s super sunny today, not a cloud in the sky but the chill in the air tells us autumn’s on its way. It’s such a beautiful season in the garden with the leaves turning colour, the dahlias in full bloom and the apples ripe for picking in the orchard.
Last year we did an autumn shoot here at the venue with a lovely group of wedding suppliers. The shoot was led by Nikki Sheriff of Knots & Kisses
knots and kisses
If you don’t know Nikki she’s a talented woman! She designs and styles weddings through Knots and Kisses. She also designs wedding stationery through the same company specialising in hand drawing venues for wedding stationery. If you haven’t seen her insta feed as the Venue Illustrator, you need to take a look.
Nikki pulled the shoot team together with the idea of showcasing autumn in a bountiful, abundant, luxe feel. Now as is often the case with inspiration shoots we were shooting autumn in the middle of August! Not the easiest thing but it just shows what you can do with a talented team of people who know their stuff.
