All About Weddings with Aspire at Stowe Landscape Gardens

My family and I love Stowe Landscape Gardens.  We were delighted when they unveiled the fabulous New Inn visitor centre and whilst I was having a wander round a thought struck me - did they have education facilities?  Oh yes they do.

Fast forward 6 months or so and Catherine and Rachel were driving down the M6 to co host All About Weddings with me.

It was my first seminar where I was training weddings and I was very much looking forward to it.  Determind to SHARE - knowledge, tips, fears, imagery, sales advice, flash advice - I held nothing back and we had a ball.

Before you have a look at a few of the pics from the 2 days I really need to thank some very important people.  I raved about this lot during the course - they are my 'people' - the amazing individuals who I have discovered through my business and who I now call friends.  They provided all the things that made the seminar top quality:

Anna McDonald and Ann Beggs for dresses and veils.
Cat Fransham for hair and make up - brilliant as always.
Rebecca from Gingerlily for the stunning bouquet and button holes.
Sarah from Euphoria for the incredible accessories.
Emma, one of the delegates, who took some behind the scenes shots.
And of course Hayley and Darren - our brilliant 'models' who had a nice couple of days kissing a lot...

Day 1 we talked a lot and then waited until the sun dropped a bit before heading down to the gardens for a pre-wedding shoot session.  In fact we kept shooting until 7pm so that we could have a play with back light and flare.

Day 2 and we spent the majority of the day shooting - beginning with details and then walking the length of Stowe  (that's quite a walk) for the wedding imagery.  The weather was STUNNING - so perfect, tricky light for training and we got to have picnic on the steps of the Temple of Concord and Victory.

We had such a good time that we've booked a special Winter Weddings seminar at Stowe on Dec 12th and 13th.  Maybe see you there!
