Meeting bloggers you’ve long admired from afar is a strange thing. Overwhelming and inspiring in equal measure, it can take you some time to find your groove and fit into a group full of big characters and existing friendships. This was definitely the case when I met up with a group of nine other interiors and lifestyle bloggers – Emily, Catherine, Kat, Lottie, Igor, Bridgee, Geraldine, Yvonne and Tina – for a day on Walnuts Farm, a stunning Sussex location house, for some styling, photography and fun. Our nominated hashtag for the day? #farmbloggers!
It was great to see everyone’s different approach to the day – some had ideas of things they wanted to shoot (I’d spent the week crafting so that I had projects to photograph), others just let themselves be inspired by the location itself, which wasn’t hard as you can see.
After the initial adjustment of being in the group, the calm of the countryside location took over, and I really enjoyed escaping from the hustle and bustle of reality for the day. Thanks to Emily for organising the trip, and to all of the farm bloggers for making it such a pleasure to be part of.

For a different perspective on our day, there’s a sneak peek from Bridgee, Catherine’s post has some gloriously romantic shots, Kat’s written about the beautiful spring wreath she made, Emily photographed Yvonne and her new book Yvestown in the Kitchen, and Yvonne has captures the essence of the location. I can’t wait to read everyone else’s posts, too, and to see most of the group again soon at Blogtacular (Igor, we’ll miss you!). If you haven’t snapped up your ticket yet, you really should – it’s going to be awesome.
