This Autumn I attended the Nordic Way Fine Art Photography Workshop by Julie Michaelsen. Going to one or two workshops a year is such a treat for me! I can meet up with fellow wedding photographers, socialise, get inspired, and most importantly have more time to photograph wedding details, unlike the 10-15 minutes I usually get on a wedding day.
This gorgeous styled editorial was centered around the Danish concept of ‘Hygge’. Although there is no single translation for the word (pronounced hoo-gah or hue-gah) the Danes use hygge to describe the warm feelings of happiness, comfort, cosiness and enjoying life’s everyday pleasures. The story of the bride and groom starts with them waking up together, getting ready for their intimate and personal family wedding at their family home in the heart of London’s Holland Park. The vision was of a down to earth, simple Nordic chic feel mixed with more romantic elements. The colour palette was pastel blush mixed with different shades of orange and yellow to reflect the changing of the seasons. The Ersa Atelier wedding dress and the flower arch by Jennifer Pinder were definite favourites of mine; and it was a real pleasure to capture all this beauty.
Thank you to the amazing team who put together this wonderful workshop!
