The Editorial Wedding: Getting Your Photography Published {styled shoot inspiration sneak peek}

This afternoon’s post is for all my photography friends, but bride’s I’ll be back tomorrow morning with some hot-off-the-press inspiration for you :)  Why not check out some of our latest real weddings to keep yourself going until then?


A few months ago I was approached by blogging buddy Gaby of SouthBound Bride with an idea for a new kind of photography workshop, one which used her many years experience as a publisher to help wedding photographers take their business to the next level, by getting their work published.  She already had our very own, extremely talented Anneli Marinovich {who’s work has been published too many times to count!} on board to teach the photography section of the day, but wanted a stylist to get involved to create a fabulous shoot for the students to capture, and learn from.  Would I be interested, she asked?!  Having worked with Gaby on a number of shoots, not least our Sparkle & Blush shoot which has been featured internationally in two bridal magazines, three wedding blogs, has been repinned a gazillion times on Pinterest and is still creating interest from editors {phew!}. Of course, I didn’t need asking twice!

As a stylist and blog editor, I feel strongly about the images used in magazines and blogs.  They communicate not just a ‘thing’, but a personality, an emotion, a moment in time, and that’s not just portrait photography but the details too.  A bride spends weeks months, or even years, coming up with and creating every last inch of her wedding decor, stationery, fashion to create her perfect look.  And your job as a photographer is to capture that love and attention, for her, her husband and family to remember forever.  Not only that, but sharing those details in magazines and on blogs inspires future brides, and shows them your level of commitment and passion for capturing their day perfectly too.

And so, I am a part of The Editorial Wedding London team! Over the past few weeks I’ve been busy venue visiting, compiling inspiration and securing a team of incredible suppliers to bring the styled shoot section of The Editorial Wedding to life.  Last week we announced the workshop will be held at Cannizaro House, a stunning 4* boutique hotel in Wimbledon with a contemporary designed interior that I just can’t wait to get my hands on.  This week, we’re teasing you with a little sneak peek at our Top Secret Pinterest board.  I’m sharing just one image today, but head over to Anneli and Gaby‘s blogs and later this week for more temptation!

I’m describing it as Kate Spade meets Elizabeth Messina. And that’s all I’m saying for now! Intrigued?!

So, what will I learn from The Editorial Wedding?

The Editorial Wedding is a new workshop for UK wedding photographers aiming to raise their professional profile and promote their business through publication both in print and online. It combines the inside track on getting published with the practical experience of a gorgeous, professionally-styled shoot in a friendly, supportive and motivating environment.

Participants will learn how to add an editorial element to their wedding photography, making the most of design, details and context, how to select and submit images to give themselves the best chance of success, and how to make the most out of publication. They will also take home a ‘cheat sheet’ guide to UK and international publications.

A morning of classroom-based teaching will be followed by an editorial shoot, styled by Louise Beukes of b.loved. Renowned for her contemporary style and attention to detail, Louise has styled and coordinated shoots with top industry professionals, producing strong editorial images that have appeared in many major publications.

There are limited places available for the workshop, which takes place on 9 April and costs £325, including lunch. Full details can be found at

I can’t wait to meet you!



After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
