The Lake District’s Coniston Mountain Rescue help create our most epic shoot yet…
When thinking about creating a styled shoot, we always want to make it something different, something spectacular.
So after driving past this venue numerous times, we contacted the fabulous Amy and Yew Tree Farm was the location of choice, as they have just started in their Wedding Venue journey. Not that it was a hard decision! Surrounded by the stunning beauty of the Lake District fells and with the breathtaking rustic beauty of the venue itself, it was perfect for something which some people would think was a bit crazy, but for us was just our imaginations running into overdrive.
This is when the ‘Damsel in a Dress’ idea became a reality, and with the help of Amy and Jo at Yew Tree, we created a wonderland of scenes encompassing the theme. With gorgeous models to work with, a team from the amazing Coniston Mountain rescue, plus a horse, this shoot was simply epic!
The Damsels in dresses worked their way around the once home of Beatrix Potter and embraced everything that we threw at them including, horses, sheep, chickens, cats and dogs! We then had the added assistance of the amazing Coniston Mountain Rescue team, who gave us some of their valuable time to truly create a Damsel in a Dress scene, with smoke flares and stretchers included.
Being in such a stunning location enabled all suppliers involved to really experiment and go a bit wild with our ideas, and the teamwork shown throughout made this styled shoot a success in every way.
