The Nordic Way
Hygge (pronounced ‘Hoogah’)
‘A quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being’
(regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish Culture)
Join Julie and a team of top UK wedding vendors and experts for two days of inspiration, knowledge sharing and portfolio building in a workshop which was born out of Julie’s love of fine art wedding photography and the Danish concept of Hygge. Be welcomed into the cosy and chic Scandi fold of an inner circle of fine art wedding professionals in the UK.
This workshop is targeted at new or budding fine art wedding photographers who want to understand how to cultivate their brand, make sure they stay profitable, and target those elusive luxury fine art wedding photography clients. We will cover SEO and pricing master classes, how to work with luxury wedding planners as well as an introduction to film photography.
Day two will entail a beautiful styled shoot which attendees will be encouraged to submit to publications to further their profile within the industry (a key differentiator from other workshops!)
Nurture & Bloom
The retreat is an opportunity to nurture your creativity. It will give you the tools you need to find inspiration outside of the world of weddings and rediscover your creative joy through floral workshops, foraging, making your own inks and papers, calligraphy and working with texture and colour to create physical mood boards, as well as written narratives to compliment the visual storytelling aspects of your work.Find out more
