An Autumnal Tudor Inspired Shoot at Sudeley Castle

Description:

Crisp, cold Autumn mornings, woolly jumpers, layering clothes and the lovely hues that this season provide us with are just a few of the reasons why I am so truly, deeply in love with this time of year. I think that it’s sad to know that Autumn is often a season (in the wedding world) that is forgotten about due to cooler days. It’s such a shame as it’s a beautiful season full of wonderful colours, textures and followed by long, cosy evenings. If you don’t agree, or perhaps your planning an Autumn wedding then today’s styled shoot will tell you exactly why an Autumnal celebration could be the pretty path for you. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

An Autumnal Tudor Inspired Styled Shoot at
Sudeley Castle
  • Crisp, cold Autumn mornings, woolly jumpers,
    layering clothes and the lovely hues that this
    season provide us with are just a few of the
    reasons why I am so truly, deeply in love with
    this time of year. I think that its sad to know
    that Autumn is often a season (in the wedding
    world) that is forgotten about due to cooler
    days. Its such a shame as its a beautiful
    season full of wonderful colours, textures and
    followed by long, cosy evenings. If you dont
    agree, or perhaps your planning an Autumn wedding
    then todays styled shoot will tell you exactly
    why an Autumnal celebration could be the pretty
    path for you.

  • A fusion of  hugely talented, hand-selected
    suppliers, Lisas love for history and a stunning
    setting makes this a gorgeous Tuesday morning
    read.
  • So without further adu, Ill pass it over to Lisa
    with some pearls of wedded wisdom and her
    inspirations behind the styled shoot. Oh, and not
    forgetting the lovely snaps from the day, either.

  • I have always enjoyed photography, since a young
    age, and over the years Ive taken great pleasure
    in taking photographs at the weddings of family
    and friends.  But despite that it never occurred
    to me to make photography a career or
    profession.  Instead I became a secretary, and
    thats been my job ever since.  However, a few
    years ago, I came to realise that I wanted to do
    more with my life and thats when I decided to
    turn my hobby in to my new career path. 
  • I did a year-long distance learning
    wedding photography course, working with some of
    the top wedding photographers in the country,
    and Lisa Lucas Photography was born.One of my
    professional highlights to date was being awarded
    a Licentiate qualification with the Royal
    Photographic Society, something I was
    exceptionally proud to receive.

  • And, organising this styled wedding photo shoot
    at Sudeley Castle is another proud moment.  Ive
    taken part in other peoples styled shoots, but
    this was the first one I organised myself.  There
    were a few hiccups along the way, but on the day
    all the suppliers came together, and we worked
    hard to produce these gorgeous images, which I
    for one am extremely proud of.

3 Tips for couples planning their special day
  • 1.  Always meet the photographer you plan to
    book.  You will spend a lot of time with your
    photographer, not just on the day but during the
    planning too.  You need to make sure that you get
    along together, that you feel comfortable with
    them.  You shouldnt select your photographer
    just because they have an amazing portfolio of
    images on their web site, or their price point
    meet and talk to them first.

10
  • 2. Always take up the opportunity to have a
    pre-wedding shoot.  Almost every couple will say
    they dislike having their photographs taken so
    they dont want to have a pre-wedding shoot.  But
    if you think about it, on your wedding day you
    will have a camera pointed at you for most of the
    time.  Consider the pre-wedding shoot as a
    practice run.  Just you and your photographer,
    theres no pressure or time constraints, get to
    know your each other a little better and see how
    your photographer works.  Take the opportunity to
    learn some tricks of the trade when it comes to
    getting the best images.  In amongst the chaos of
    wedding planning, why not take a few hours for
    yourselves and most importantly have some fun.

  • The team behind the look on the two ladies, Sian
    and Louella were Charmagne Berry for hair and the
    Susan Hunter Hair Makeup Academy.

12
  • 3. Take the time to plan ahead with your
    photographer.  If you have the option, do a venue
    visit together.  It will give you a chance to
    look around together, discuss where are the best
    places to do the group shots and the couple
    portraits, to formulate a plan B in case of bad
    weather.  I ask my couples to complete a wedding
    planner with as much information as possible.  We
    can discuss the group shots that they want are
    there any special requirements are they planning
    any surprises for their guests are there any
    particular details they want photographed etc. 
    It might seem like more work, but it will be
    worth it in the end so you can enjoy your day,
    the photographer can get on with their job and
    present you with a set of amazing images.

13
What Type of Venue did you choose, the style
of Photography, and a bit of background to the
shoot
  • With my love of history, the Tudors especially,
    I adore the prospect of shooting weddings in any
    one of the UKs amazing stately homes, castles
    and historic venues.  We are so blessed in this
    country to have so many to choose from.
  • Top of my wedding photography bucket list is to
    shoot a Tudor/medieval themed wedding. Sudeley
    Castle, although not local to me, is one of my
    favourite places to be.  With its Tudor
    connections, I find it peaceful walking around
    and the grounds are simply gorgeous.  Ive been
    lucky enough to have walked the grounds dressed
    as a lady of the Tudor Court, at a number of
    events there.

14
  • My idea behind the shoot was to show that a bride
    can wear a contemporary gown but still have a
    gorgeous themed wedding.  Although the bridal
    gowns for the shoot are relatively simple in
    their design, they have beautiful detailing, and
    with the addition of an amazing floral crown and
    matching loose bouquet, you can achieve a
    beautiful look, as we did here.  And wouldnt a
    bride love to be escorted to her wedding by a
    knight in shining armour riding his trusty horse,
    in this case the magnificent Asgard.

15
  • With the backdrop of the Castle in autumn, and
    being able to enlist the services of The Cavalry
    of Heroes for our knight and horse, and the
    Ladies of the Tudor Court who can entertain your
    guests (if you ask very politely, you may be
    honoured with the presence of one of Henry VIIIs
    queens!!) this was a vision I couldnt let go of
    and I needed to see it come to life.
  • On the day we had a brilliant time, everything
    went smoothly, the weather behaved, everyone got
    on so well together and the suppliers worked
    miracles for me.  The bridal gowns were
    perfect and the flowers were exactly what Id
    imagined but had struggled slightly to explain to
    the florist, but she read my mind.The blooming
    beautiful flowers were sourced from Kerry of
    Cottage Garden Weddings. Im sure you will agree
    on just how lovely they are.

16
What are your Plans and Where do I see myself in
5 years
  • I want to continue to expand my photography busin
    ess, so I can continue to live my life on my
    terms.  I adore my photography, it brings me to
    life when I have a camera in my hands, and the
    more I do the more I learn and the more I love
    it.
  • I love weddings, but I also enjoy learning and
    adding to the types of photography I do.  The
    continued partnership with The Cavalry of Heroes
    to photograph their jousting shows gives me the
    opportunity to indulge my love of history and to
    photograph fast action events, involving horses.

17
  • Meeting new clients and getting to know them
    before I even pick up a camera is important to me
    and so enjoyable.  Im looking forward to
    expanding my personal branding photography package
    .  Its so much fun meeting ladies in business
    and helping them create beautiful images for
    their social media platforms.
  • The gowns were from Nina Furness Couture, a
    bespoke designer. We loved the romantic accents,
    lace detailing and flowing fabrics that
    complimented the venue so well.

18
What do you love about Wedding Photography
  • Its so satisfying to see the fruition of my
    couples plans on their big day.  We spend quite
    a bit of time together before the day, putting
    plans in place etc, and I enjoy getting to know
    them and hearing all about whats happening.  At
    the beginning of the day, during the bridal prep
    and while everyone is running around, I almost
    feel like a fly on the wall, capturing the
    activity on my camera and listening to the
    conversations the excitement and anticipation
    for the rest of the day.  I feel privileged to be
    a part of a couples wedding day and I simply
    love the whole experience.
  • This years weddings have seen a guard of honour
    by the brides Rainbow group, from the church
    the cutest otter cake toppers the grooms mother
    tripping, hurting her ankle and an unexpected
    appearance by paramedics (she was just fine) and
    a zipper emergency with a bridesmaids gown,
    thankfully sorted out in the nick of time.

19
What Makes you Different
  • My mission for my wedding couples is to make the
    wedding photography process as painless as
    possible for them.  Im here to help them, every
    step of the way, and to take the stress of
    organising the photography away from hem.  With
    planning ahead of time, I can do my job and they
    can enjoy their day.  They are creating their own
    moments in history with their wedding photography,
    and its one of the very few elements to remain
    after the day, and I want them to feel happy and
    comfortable when we work together.
