I’ve been sharing my calligraphy with photographers all across the UK this year, and had the pleasure of working on a handful of styled shoots myself as well. It’s a part of my work I really love – and seeing the images from every shoot is such a treat!
I owe a huge thank you to Ayshea Goldberg for including my calligraphy in several shoots this year. I met Ayshea at Aspire Photography Training in May 2014, and she was one of the fab photographers who sent images back from Venice for me to publish on the blog this summer.
Ayshea’s own styled shoot took place at Kersey Mill in late summer. The pinks and pastels created a relaxed summer vibe, with a rustic tiered cake and pretty table styling perfect for an intimate wedding.
The calligraphy details were super casual (a bit of an experiment for me, and one I LOVED playing with for Ayshea!) – with an invitation and handwritten envelope, place settings, table name cards and a quote in brush lettering in shades of pink. You can buy all of these details in my Etsy shop at www.Etsy.com/shop/CalligraphyStore
Ayshea worked with a team of local wedding suppliers from Suffolk to create the styled shoot. She said, “It’s always lovely to work with talented suppliers in the wedding industry, I meet so many people throughout a wedding day, it’s usually quite brief and everyone is fully involved with their role on the day. So it’s good to keep in touch and spend time being creative with experts in a setting where the pace isn’t as fast and each person can really show off their skills.”
Please see the full supplier list at the end of this feature for details – and if you’re planning a Suffolk wedding DO get in touch with them!
