Christmas trends 2017

Last week I showed you some outdoorsy Christmas shots I styled during the summer. Here are the latest Christmas trends by Wyevale Garden Centres. But before we get to the pretty shots, it’s worth mentioning that way back in May and June a team of us worked really hard to put together a Christmas lookbook for Wyevale Garden Centres. It started off with me searching for a suitable location, one that’s able to showcase 5 different Christmas looks, plus outdoor shots and Christmas lighting, no easy task. Finally a location was secured and the shooting took place over 4 days in June. I did the planning and drawing of the shots and also the styling on set,  I was assisted by the lovely Antonia McKenzie. The super talented photographer Nato Welton, which I’ve had the privilege to have worked with before on numerous occasions, shot these lovely images. In my opinion, Nato is the wizard of lighting!  

Here are a few of the trends we covered for Wyevale Garden Centres.

A Stylish White & Green Christmas

The countdown to Christmas has begun, so it’s time to set up your own show-stopping Christmas tree. Here are a few Christmas trees dressed with a selection of white, glass, silver and green decorations and baubles. I had great fun styling and setting up these shots for the Wyevale Garden Centre shoot, way back in May. We shot five different Christmas themes and below are some of my favourite shots from the day.
