Day 7 of supplier week and it’s gone all flowery with Tarnia Williams. I first photographed a wedding that Tarnia created the floral displays for in 2012, since then there have been numerous weddings and magazine shoots that we have worked on together. So when she got in touch for her branding photo shoot I knew we were going to have fun making gorgeous pictures.
If you’ve ever asked me about theming a wedding day, then you’ll know my answer is always don’t theme, just COVER the venue with flowers. There is no such thing as having too many blooms and greenery on your wedding day, they create a gorgeous atmosphere, make the rooms smell good and are a joy to photograph.
Over to Tarnia…
“From my garden studio in rural Berkshire, I lovingly create stunning bespoke floral designs for weddings. I love working closely with my clients to understand and interpret their vision, enabling me to bring their dreams to life.
I’m well aware that it’s rather a cliché to say that I love my job, but I do. I adore every moment from initial consolation, meetings at the venue to of course setting everything up on the day.
I was in the process of rebranding the business along with a new logo and website and had been told I needed to get some images of me to use. Having worked with Hannah on a number of photo shoots and real weddings it was obvious that she was the photographer for me.
It’s fair to say that I was more than a bit nervous. I’m definitely more comfortable working away behind the scenes making sure everything looks beautiful so it was a big step for me to put myself in front of the camera. Of course I need not have been at all worried as Hannah was great at putting me at ease, making me relax and even laugh and enjoy the shoot.
We used the workshop and my lovely woodland garden as backdrops, which was great as I already felt at home. She suggested some working shots so I happily set to making a bouquet while she snapped away – meaning I really didn’t even know she was shooting. From start to finish the whole experience was great and I simply love all of the images.
For me having images that reflected me and my personality was really important to help my potential clients connect with me. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Hannah for product, promotional, or wedding photographs.”
