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.
