A few months back I got the opportunity to shoot with an amazing team for Isobel Hind Couture again! This team holds a very special place in my heart as it's the first team I ever shot with! We have all kept in contact since then and became good friends which made shooting even more fun. The other model you see is the insanely stunning Georgia McPherson, this was her first shoot (hard to believe I know) and she took to it like a duck to water. Georgia was lovely to work with and I would love to work with her again. Samantha from Isobel HindCouture really does create the most magical pieces of couture jewellery and you can see how much work and love goes into each piece. Her latest collection was inspired by the 1920's and I loved wearing her pieces, it felt as though I was wearing the crown jewels .They are just breathtaking. The fabulous photos you see were taken by amazing Jade Sayers AKA Jeanie Isobel Photography. Jade knows how to capture the light perfectly, creating beautiful dreamy photos with a high fashion feel . I adore the colours and tones she uses and she has some fantastic ways of getting the models to smile and look natural. The gorgeously vintage hair and makeup was created by the fantastic Tori Harris. I love working with Tori as she is a complete expert at hair and makeup and always captures the feel of the shoot to a T. She is so friendly and relaxing when she is doing you up you feel as though you’re catching up with an old friend. Her eye for detail is impeccable as you can tell with the hairstyles she created. The dresses and delicious cakes were provided by Very Vintage Bridal and A Little Piece Of Cupcake. And the magnificent venue was the exquisite Narborough Hall Gardens. Here are some of my favourites from the shoot. Enjoy!
A few weeks back I got to shoot with one of my favourite people again. The first shoot I did with Owen was brilliant, he is such a cool and laid back guy and so easy to chat to that I instantly feel relaxed. I really loved the results from the first shoot we did and when he asked me to shoot again I jumped at the chance! We went to some stunning locations, first being some beautiful woodlands next to a mausoleum, next was a lovely white bridge over a stream and lastly in the most wonderful pine forest. Owen really did find the perfect locations and I had such a great day shooting with him. I absolutely adore the results, as usual Owens work looks dreamy and effortless. I was even lucky enough to receive some prints of these amazing photos and I hope to work with Owen lots more in the future! Here are some of my favourites, I hope you like them :)
A few months ago on a lovely warm summer's day I got to venture into some beautiful woodland and take part in an ethereal animal inspired marriage ceremony (staged of course). The utterly gorgeous headwear was made by the lovely Natalie Ellner of Ellsewhere. Natalie is an extremely talented artist who created these wonderfully realistic headpieces. She creates bespoke head wear and accessories that are truly breathtaking, and with the likes of Kate Winslet as clients you know she must be good! I wore a Charlotte Garrat dress who creates "one of a kind wedding dresses for inspired brides using only the finest fabrics and couture techniques", it was so comfortable all day and fitted perfectly. The makeup and hair looks were created by the amazing girls from Face Addict Hair Junkie. They were absolutely wonderful, creating perfect looks to compliment the shoot and also being so lovely. These fantastic photos were taken by awesome Loukia. She was brilliant to work with, going out of her way to get the perfect shots (I think I even remember a ladder being involved!). I think she has captured the feel the of shoot perfectly with beautiful soft lighting and colours making it seem very enchanting and magical. It was a delight working with all the models, e all clicked instantly and got on so well as a group which made the shoot even more fun. Here of some of my favorite photos from the shoot, more can be seen and more info on the shoot and other models can be found at http://festivalbrides.co.uk/animal-kingdom-a-styled-shoot-featuring-art-sculpture-creative-headwear.
