Awakening Festival 2019
Tomorrow I am off to photograph the first ever Awakening Festival; taking place at Weston Manor House in the West of the Isle of Wight. The event, a celebration of wellbeing and self care has been created by Kate Taylor. I first met Kate when I went to shoot the promo for the event. She’s a sparkly woman, full of affection and enthusiasm and I’m excited to experience how this translates into her Festival over the weekend.
The Promo Shoot
I embarked upon the Wightlink Ferry on May Day, with Isle of Wight based Yogis Freya and Sian. We discovered a distinct lack of ‘yoga appropriate spaces’ on the open decks, unsurprising on a vessel designed to moved large numbers of people! We did however find plenty of wonderful props and unusual spaces to use – tables, benches, the car-deck and of course the Bridge, with the Captain!
