Goat Walking for weddings… with the most amazing photoshoot!

Published by Claire Gould on

If you’d like to spend your Monday with proper grin on your face, we’re here to help! Today’s gorgeous editorial photoshoot has a fun energy and a brilliant sense of humour. It brings together a bunch of Dorset wedding suppliers who share the same playfulness as well as being super talented in what they do! Huge thanks to lovely Emily for sending in this very mischievous styled shoot from early autumn – complete with goats! We hope you LOVE it!

“A few months ago, I was looking for a fun birthday treat for my Partner’s Mum, and I stumbled across The Ranch who offers goat walking through the Weymouth countryside. After chatting to the owners, I discovered that they had just started offering Goat Walking packages for weddings! Of course, I had to do a shoot, who wouldn’t jump at that opportunity?

As well as being a fun (and slightly chaotic) photoshoot, I wanted it to celebrate local wedding suppliers who brought that same fun energy.

Bridal Reloved is based 15 minutes away from the Ranch in Dorchester, and has a fantastic collection of preloved gowns and really celebrates their brides.

Floral Couture By Jay is an exceptionally talented and skilled florist, even his shop window has become its own celebrity in Weymouth with Jay’s creativity on display for anyone who walks past.

Kirsten MUA is a talented artist, and regularly works on films and television, so I knew her creativity would be great for this shoot.

Even our model, Tegen, is a singer, aerial acrobatic, and fire eater, who is available for weddings.

I, Lotus Photography, am based down the road in Bournemouth and have gained a reputation for fun authentic photos, as well as a well-known love for the crazier-styled shoots.

As this shoot was about community, I decided to bring on a Second Shooter for this shoot, Hollyhock Photography. Holly’s images are not featured in this gallery, but trust me, she’s a fantastic photographer and was brilliant on the day helping with the chaos.

And as you can imagine, the animals are the true stars of the show!
