6th AUGUST 2019 | Herefordshire, UK
This one day editorial workshop co-hosted in collaboration with Twisted Sisters was all about flowers, humans, and the line between - a one day storytelling and floral installation workshop centered around creativity. We talked about the basic principles of styling and how to look at a space in terms of lines and light. We explored dereliction, wilderness, and how to balance natural and man-made - how to embrace the cycle of life and let the forces of time inspire our designs. The concept at the heart of the workshop was to find the line where beauty fades, where the past becomes present, where abandoned becomes tamed, and where broken becomes new. We wanted to play with light and dark, and show the raw beauty of things that aren't traditionally "beautiful".
One of our sources of inspiration was the story of ‘Grey Gardens’, originally a 1975 American documentary film depicting the everyday lives of two reclusive, formerly upper class women, a mother and daughter both named Edith Beale, living in poverty in a derelict mansion in East Hampton, New York.
This workshop was aimed at anyone with an interest in floral design, event planning, and styling - whether a beginner wanting to push boundaries or an established florist, designer or planner looking to experience something different, or simply looking for a day away to get your creative juices flowing.
Watch this space for more workshops!
25th SEPTEMBER 2019 | Camber Sands Beach & The Cherry Barn
The very first Dreamcapture Workshop for photographers was held on Wednesday September 25th 2019 in East Sussex, and we're over the moon to say it was a wonderful success! We had an incredible time meeting other professionals, creating together, and getting swept up by the dreamy bohemian magic - and we're delighted to share images and videos with you today.
The aim for these workshops is to design exciting, stylish, and modern wedding inspiration for our attendees to capture - so they come away with some fantastic visual content to share and add to their portfolios right away. For us, these workshops are all about genuine emotions and intentional details, which we'll be exploring through a range of different styles. We had the joy of welcoming two gorgeous real couples to model for us, and to bring to life the wild, beachy, and intimate elopement set up we created for our first workshop. Also included in the day was an Instagram masterclass which covered everything from strategy to branding, as well as providing lots of advice on how to most impactfully market content like photoshoots, real weddings, and behind-the-scenes material too.
The enthusiasm, energy and creativity of the photographers who joined us truly blew us away, and we can't wait to host our next workshop - we won't give details away just yet, but let's just say we've got our eye on somewhere beautifully exotic and warm!
