The theme for the shoot was ‘old fashioned education values delivered in a modern way’ with a combined focus on technology and creativity. By bringing in specific elements including vintage books, chalkboards, bookcases, chalkboard style stationery, technology including laptops and tablets and coral coloured peonies, the UK Academy of Wedding and Event Planning students brought their vision together.
“Our first port of call was to set up a time to chat with Louise Beukes of b.loved, a wonderful wedding stylist who has been the mastermind behind many stunning styled shoots, not to mention being on our very own Advisory Board. We brainstormed ideas and started narrowing down the concept, theme and story behind the Summer School Shoot. The theme for the shoot was ‘old fashioned education values delivered in a modern way’ with a combined focus on technology and creativity.
“A secret board was created on Pinterest and images were being pinned at a rate of knots. Then came the task of going through the images to pinpoint a cohesive look that not only represented our brand but that told the story we were wanting the world to hear.
“Finally after many emails, conversations and late nights the day arrived and we were on a train down to Fulham Palace to turn our Summer School concept into a reality. Our dream team of suppliers made the whole thing an outstanding success and after lots of caffeine and couple of lovely cakes from the cafe it was a wrap.”
The UK Academy of Wedding and Event Planning presents the video from the styled shoot ‘Summer School’, revealing their fresh and new branding to the world.
