What a joy it was to bring this styled shoot together!
This project started a few months ago, when Adele at a CW Campervans telephoned and requested some photographs of their newly refurbished convertible ivory VW Beetle (named 'Daisy'), that they would be hiring out for weddings as part of their VW fleet. To bring the car to life, we decided to incorporate a bridal photoshoot.
I gave some thought as to the sort of bride who might want to hire an ivory convertible beetle with ivory leather interior: bohemian, glamorous, independent-minded, feminine. Iconic Bride bridal boutique suggested open guipure lace designs from WToo Watters that embodied this vibe. I made a mood board playing up to the spring season with golden yellows. The vision in my head was of a bride sat in the driving seat, dressed in lace, flower crown, with unapologetically bold boho jewellery. Read More
Over this past winter I collaborated with a number of wedding suppliers on a styled wedding photoshoot entitled 'Winter Wonderland Wedding'. Wedding season is traditionally from spring to autumn, with these months being the most popular to get married but winter can provide an incredibly romantic atmosphere and one of the prettiest colour palettes. We wanted to show how this could be done to best effect. However, we didn't want it to be Christmas themed, opting instead for a combination of all shades of white and palest grey with accents of metallic and evergreen - giving this photoshoot more than a touch of old-Hollywood, flim star glamour.
Candlelight, marabou feathers, sumptuous fabrics and sweet smelling narcissi are all uniquely available to winter brides and it's these timeless, romantic elements that make for a magical day. Just add a touch of frost and a sprinkling of snow! Read More
