Empowerment & Business Coach
Kiki is a coach, creative and proud mama of both business and small human. She lives in the picturesque Cotswolds, practicing slowing life down so she can really embrace the incredible moments that help us feel we’re truly living life. After experiencing a period of personal disconnection post partum, Kiki dedicated the following years to figuring out how we can cultivate a sense of belonging, abundance and confidence – as well as enjoying the reflection of that in our businesses – and now shares her learnings with others through coaching, teaching and her most recent business baby Gather Co.
Nikki lives in the wild-windswept County of Cornwall along with her husband, tribe of boys, and dismissive hound Molly. My passion for photography was ignited fours years ago when I was gifted my first DSLR. I had asked for a food mixer but that is a whole other story. I’m a self taught rule breaker, always keen to push the boundaries with my imagery. I’ve a penchant for freelensing, intentional camera movement and long exposure. My work is often described as dreamlike, ethereal, enchanted, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.
Ria Mishaal is passionate about crafting authentic and artistic imagery. Ria has built a six-figure photography business shooting weddings, portraits and high-end commercial photography, and was awarded the prestigious distinction of Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society in 2018 for her Project Animalia. Ria uses her 12 years of professional photography and her 15 years of teaching experience, to help her students learn the fundamentals of photography, visual style, branding and business so they can harness the power of creative photography and work with more of their ideal clients. She lives in Hampshire with her husband and daughter in an old house with a wild garden, full of trees and birdsong. She loves the peace of long walks in the woodland and the magical feeling of early morning and late afternoon light. Stories are her great love.

Charlotte loves Autumn, wine, chips, Vogue, Wellington Boots, crime novels and art heist movies. Her heroes include Sir David Attenborough and Iris Apfel.
Georgina is a seaside dweller residing on the North Yorkshire coast in a small fishing town. She believes in craft and quality, longevity and love. This philosophy is echoed within her photography. She shoots with a mixture of digital and analogue film. The colours of real film are rich and have a beautiful depth. When not behind the camera, she can often be found walking her very spirited miniature Dachshund, Ernest on the beach.
Laura E Patrick
Calligrapher & Photographer
I’m Laura, a calligrapher, photographer and all round creative type based in sunny Scotland near Glasgow. I take a fine art approach to wedding stationery and like to create elegant designs blending my own organic calligraphy with classic simple type design with quirky vintage touches and some illustration. When I’m not surrounded by paper, or covered in ink, I’m usually taking pictures. I love beautiful natural imagery and love nothing more than finding new and inspiring things to photograph. I take on a number of photography projects including food and product styling, location shots, weddings and family/ baby photo sessions.

Artist & Writer
Hayley is an artist and writer working from her studio on the beautiful coast in Dorset. Her work is informed and inspired by the wild, folklore, the magic of the everyday and the stories that give us a unique sense of ownership over the land and spaces we visit. Her most recent work explores how image making, writing and ceramics can cohabit to communicate narratives and ideas about women in nature, and the folklore of plants and animals as they relate to symbols of self-realisation and transformation.
