"A truly stunning farmhouse, set deep in the glorious rolling countryside, with the most beautiful decor, hospitality and people I've experienced, well ever! Hosts I am in awe of, photographically speaking and in the challenges and journeys of their personal lives. And guests whom I felt I clicked with immediately. I'm really hoping that these two wonderful women host their next workshop soon because I feel that other people deserve to experience the warmth I've felt." ~ Liz  (Lottiebrown_photography)

"Perhaps as we get older, we dim the light on our enthusiasm, just in case it's not shared by others. But today, there was non of that. We were all on common ground in the comfort of each others company. All our lights were shining and present. I cannot recommend the In the Orchard Workshops enough. It was far greater than I ever hoped it could be" ~ Donna (littleseasonsphotography)

"I'm literally bouncing off the walls right now, still on a high having spent the day with Kyle and Keri-Anne who hosted THE most incredible workshop. It has reignited a fire in my belly that never went out and i'm refocused, inspired and have more confidence in my work. Kyle and Keri-Anne were the most hospitable, warm and welcome hosts" ~ Amy (amymorrisphotography)

"I spent today in the most heavenly way and in brilliant company. Keri-Anne and Kyle were incredibly generous with their time and expertise and Kyle's food was out of this world. Their daughters were the most sweet and helpful models and it was a privilege to photograph them in such a beautiful setting. ~ Carolyn (under_a_northern_sky)

"Had the most wonderful day. I wanted the day to go on and on. The workshop was amazing, Met some inspiring women and delightful little fairy's, something I will treasure forever. Feeling all warm and fuzzy. I can still smell the apples and cinnamon spice that gently wafted through the beautiful home." ~ (weeedinburghfairy)

My creative story is a long one. Starting 19 years ago when i started my first blog and got gifted my first 1mp camera! I wrote stories, I took the grainiest photos of trees and i spent much of my time riding my bike through meadows to the windmill or walking to the river to sit in a tree and read.

My passion for photography and capturing beautiful stories has grown and grown over the years. I upgraded to a 3mp camera at the aged of 16 and then bought my first DSLR at the aged of 18. This was the turning point in my creative journey because I was able to capture what I could see in my head and i spent many days out on photoshoots in the meadows and woods with a self timer, a pair of fairy wings and a tripod! Fast forward those 19 years and I am now here, about to embark on my first creative workshop with my lovely friend Kyle from SuddenJourneys.

We have set out to create beautiful workshops with our first one hosted in October. As well as the workshop, we have created a facebook group where all participants of our workshops can connect and help and support each other through their own creative journeys. In the Orchard workshops are all about spending time with other creative people, supporting each other and learning about creative photography. We want people to go away inspired and excited for their future with tools to help them achieve their own goals and dreams in what ever direction they wish to go in. We want to give you the environment to grow and we hope that these workshops will bring something different.

In The Orchard workshop

In October, we held our very first workshop. It was more than we could have dreamed of and we met some wonderful and inspiring ladies. We would love to welcome you all to our second workshop where we are offering teaching and practical lessons. We chose March to give people a little pick me up. Winter can be so long and we feel that it is so important to our mental health to have something to look forward to in those bleak months. Hosted at Kyle's beautiful farm cottage in a little hamlet village on the cusp of Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire.

When: 16th March 2019 9:30am - 4:30pm (This workshop is for women only)

Price: £85 (Your English Heritage entry fee is included in this price)

The day:

-We will start with pastries, tea and coffee in the beautiful farm house. We will gather around a fire and get to know each other. Talk about our own creative journeys as well as talking about any basics you would like to know about your camera/photography and chatting about instagram/websites/social media. Kyle has 25 years of photography experience and I have 14 and we can both bring our knowledge and expertise on photography/instagram to the table. Before the workshop, we will be sending out a little questionnaire to get to know you all personally and to see what you would like to get out of the day. Anything you would love to learn or talk about and these will be brought into the morning discussion/teaching. It will be a lovely and cosy winter morning full of exciting and inspiring discussions.

This cosy morning will be followed by a cosy lunch in the farm house! Kyle is amazing at creating delicious food and creating a beautiful space to eat.

Next, we will be taking a short drive to a beautiful and enchanting English Heritage site for a practical photography afternoon. We shall have our own daughters there to model if you wanted to capture some beautiful and creative pictures. I have visions of them walking around like children of the manor!  This is going to be a really fun and relaxed afternoon. If you didn't want to use the models, you can set up styled shoots or just shoot the landscape and scenery. There are no rules and this is all about giving you a beautiful space to create your own beautiful work in and to get any guidance you would like as well as working with other creatives to see how they shoot also.

We shall then make our way back to the farm house where we will have cake and reflect on the day.

We hope you love the sound of this workshop. If you have any questions before booking, please please don't hesitate to ask. You can email me at or message me on instagram (gingerlillytea) or Kyle (Suddenjourneys). We would be more than happy to answer anything you might like to know.
