..June’s eclectic wedding shoot at the McCoy’s Tontine. Big, big love to everyone who made this shoot come together ❤ It’s since been featured on Rock’n’Roll Bride which made me do a happy dance around the house..
A few weeks ago I was part of a shoot to promote Lauren’s textile business Thimble & Bobbin. It was organised with a colourful, retro theme to show the collection, which itself takes influence from 60s fabrics and vintage homewares. We had two gorgeous models, Beth and Pippa, and we were lent aprons from Pinnikitty, headwear from What Katy Did Next, crockery from Tea with Ruby, art from Alexandra Garrity, dresses from Make Me A Dress as well as enlisting help for ahair and make up from Vintage Tinsel and Make Up By Jo, and we shot at some gorgeous farm cottages at Bousdale Farm. (Phew.. is that everyone?!)
The day went without a glitch due to Katy being super-organised as ever, and here are the results, which have since been featured on Love My Dress.
Hope you like!
To all followers out there, I’m sorry I’ve been a little neglectful of my blog.. I’ve been tying up loose ends at uni and had my final exams last week (5 in 5 days.. whose great idea was that?!).. but now my own wedding season has begun I promise to be more attentive in the future.
Now I have slightly more free time I’ve embarked upon a 365 project to develop my personal portfolio and hopefully keep me creative.. The 365 project is a photograph a day for the next year.. There are only two so far but I’ll most likely post on a monthly basis to show what I’ve been up to on here and on my facebook site..
Here are the first two, a very lovely lady from Whitby Goth Weekend and fab couple Tracy & Chris from their wedding reception on Saturday:
I flicked through Belle Bridal Magazine and found a few of my photographs..
I’ve started collecting a few gorgeous wedding dresses for June’s shoot, and hopefully lined up a videographer to make a short film of the day..
I took Vivienne, my sister and her friend down to the first ever Wedding Institute in Saltburn.. Vivienne ADORED getting her nails done by Nancy Loves Nails and hasn’t stopped talking about them since..
And more than anything I’m celebrating having some flexible time! This week I’m taking Vivi to my friend’s farm to see the lambs, a Sal’n’Dav’n’Vivi day, seeing friends on Saturday, family on Sunday, leisurely cooking and family dinners.. and generally catching up with everything I’ve had to push to one side for uni recently.. BRING ON SUMMER!
Finally I’ve found some time to pick and upload my favourites from the so-delicious-you-could-taste-it Alice in Wonderland shoot from a few weeks ago!
It has been featured on Brides Up North in the past few weeks, where you can also find the full credits from all the wonderful suppliers who contributed and helped make the day run so smoothly (thanks!!)
Here are my ultimate favourites, it was hard to pick with so much gorgeous detailing going on!
Happy Sunday everyone.
On Thursday Andrew & Meri’s gorgeous Winter wedding was featured on the gorgeous pages of Whimsical Wonderland Weddings.
Andrew & Meri gave it a brilliant write-up, which you can read at the bottom under the photographs, and even included a lovely shout-out to yours truly!
They are also part of the team behind Fight Pilot, the film project I have been asked to be involved with, you can read all about it here.
For now, here are my personal favourite images from their wedding 🙂
What a lovely start to the day! Our Alice shoot has been featured by the lovely northern blog Brides Up North this morning ❤
My poor little car even got a mention in the piece, almost worth losing it to get good results from the shoot (down to the styling, our dream team and uber-organised Katy)… as Julia herself said:
“OMG OMG OMG I am all of a flutter! I have a wedding blog fashion exclusive to share with you this morning that is possibly one of the most well executed bridal inspiration shoots that I have seen yet (and trust me, I see A LOT!)”
So go check it out and in the next few days I’ll show the full shot on here too.
The lovely Joanna and Andrew’s wintry engagement was featured on Brides Up North last week, and they had some lovely things to xsay about their wedding next year, each other, and me (how very flattering!). Go and check it out, these two are such a lovely couple.
I’ve been singing Katy Howieson’s praises since I first commissioned my bridal headpiece around a year ago from What Katy Did Next. I truly believe she has magic fingers and am in awe of her creations, so when she asked if I’d like to be involved with a few other local suppliers for a photo shoot showcasing her first collection I jumped at the chance! It was a few months in the pipeline but the set up was well worth the wait, when I arrived to greet Katy and model Alex Garrity the car was overflowing with a million beautiful things and when we arrived at the garden location for the shoot her vision came to life!
Suppliers included Papaver Designs who create gorgeous delicate paper lanterns for tables, outdoors or can be hung with tealights inside, Cakes by Beth who provided some delicious (I sneaked a taste) macaroons and cake pops, The Cupcake Boutique for some amazing little flowery cupcake creations, Lauren Crawford Textiles who creates the most gorgeous homewares, Vicky Trainor who made the vintage decoupage inspired fabric sign and Alex Garrity (also our model for the day) who drew the intricate ‘What Katy Did Next’ framed artwork.
I’ve had to wait to share the results with you for a while as the shoot has been featured on Love My Dress and Belle Bridal website and magazine (this month) so far, with a few others in the pipeline.
