Illuminated Collective Workshop – bright Inspiratons


Majestically the old castle is enthroned on its property, wildly overgrown and scarred by time. These walls have seen a lot. But today their spirits will be revived.

Spring adorns itself with bright colors. Pink, rosé and peach gently wake up this magnificent building from its winter sleep. The park shines in new splendour, grass and flowers bloom.

Carefully rays of sunlight run their hands over all, bathing the entire estate in warm light.

These unbelievable pictures are the result of the worlds first film photography workshop called “Illuminated Collective” which photographer Ashlee Tayler from Taylor Barnes Photography and event stylist Jessie from Jessie Thomson Weddings initiated.

Stylist Jessie tolD: „With me florals are always a huge element of the overall design, they evoke so much feeling and often dictate the mood more than any other styling detail. I wanted to show how bright colours can still be effortlessly chic and timeless, which is ultimately what most brides want from their wedding day.

Coral was a hugely popular colour for my real weddings in 2014, so I think the new warm Spring colours „Strawberry Ice” and „Tangerine” will have a huge appeal for a lot of couples planning their 2015 wedding. Even though the tones are bright – they’ve been inspired by nature. The whole design will probably appeal most to brides who have an eye for the finer things in life, but still love to run barefoot through wildflower fields every now and then.”

We are sure there´s something for everyone inside this adorable world of inspirations: amazing stationery, a wonderfully natural bridal couple, stunning florals and a breathtaking location turned into an unique artistic synthesis in the hands of stylist Jessie Thomson.

Come with us and let the expressive and colorful pictures shot by Taylor Barnes Photography help you come out of hibernation.
