Last week I took part in a styled shoot with a whole host of supremely talented wedding suppliers. The theme was inspired by the Danish Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) which is a general sense of warmth and cosiness, a love of simplicity and a focus on positivity and joy in the world while pushing away negativity. Hygge is a feeling of calm, snuggly loveliness, and generally uses lots of candles!
Camp Katur was chosen as the venue. It’s a beautiful old barn on the Camp Hill Estate in Kirklington, Bedale, which is a perfect blank canvas for your wedding day. With beams, fairy lights, a bar and even a stags head (!), it lends itself perfectly to the Hygge theme. Obviously I can’t show you the finished photos – that would be crazy and get me in a lot of trouble – however here are a couple of behind the scenes shots that I took whilst the shoot was ongoing.
We had a few tricky moments, such as when the amazing Sarah from Farm was struggling to get her floral installation into place as the beam was so high, and the ladder so small, however James from Mix N Twist Bartending turned out to be a brilliant aim with a rope and a tiny tree stump on the end, so he managed to throw the rope over the beam!
We had the gorgeous Coco keeping us company all day too, and she even managed to get a starring role as one of the models!
Overall it was an amazing day and such a privilege to work with some fantastic suppliers:
