Wynyard Hall

Vib + Varsha


A chic and stylish shoot at Wynyard Hall

What can I say about the wonderful Vib and Varsha. Having only known them a short time they were immediately easy to get on with. They were both fantastic models chosen by Velvet and Linen for this Wynyard Hall workshop.

I started the day shooting detail photos of the cakes and beautiful setup from @theorchidkitchen – Absolutely smashed it out the park with the detailing. The day moved into photos of the stunning Varsha for bridal preparations and the gorgeous bridal suite at Wynyard Hall worked so well as the perfect backdrop. Varsha was so easy to work with and took cues very easily and often did her own thing making things even easier. A great model and from the photos below you can see she looked amazing for these bridal portraits.

As I progressed to dinner time I photographed Vib down in the library with some beautiful window light; creating super lush groom portraits. It’s not all about the bride you know haha. After dinner I photographed the super detailed table scape by @peartreelanestyling – see below – wow. The whole table looked incredible and the oyster candles were my absolute favourite. So cool and just looked so chic.

Vib and Varsha then came back into the main conservatory at Wynyard Hall to view the tabelscape and grab a few more portraits through this setting. At a point in the day I also gave myself a little 5 minute challenge with Vib and Varsha to create beautiful portraits in as short a time as possible. This behind the scenes video will be available on my YouTube channel soon along with a full workshop BTS and review video and why in my opinion it’s worth attending workshops and building a strong portfolio.

These photos were captured and created at a styled workshop by Velvet and Linen and in no way am I trying to pass it off as a real wedding BUT the imagery on this portfolio page is indicative of the type of imagery I can produce given the right setting i.e a clean bridal prep room haha, a bride and groom who wants some posing. Typically I work in a non posed fashion so these images are a good visual representation of posed portraits.

If you’re looking at getting married at Wynyard Hall and love my work, why not get in touch. Again the images on this page are predominantly more posed but check out my stories of real weddings for a more relaxed and authentic approach. If you want posed images thats also fine. Enjoy the images.

My approach page is a great place to start, you will know if we will be a great fit if you read this entire page and how i approach the different elements of a wedding day from bridal prep in the morning to the group photos to the dance floor. Once you have my approach covered it’s worth checking your date is free and I can send over availability and my pricing followed by a zoom call to chat further.
