An oh-so-cute, bridesmaid shoot.. | Commercial

Wedding season is here! I’m becoming increasingly busy as the weeks draw on and work builds up but there wasn’t even the tiniest chance that I’d  pass up on the chance to shoot the latest installment of What Katy Did Next’s bridesmaid collection of headwear and bridal accessories. There is a whole team of wonderful suppliers involved who I will name-check when the full set comes out, but for now here is a teeny-tiny preview from our shoot yesterday..

If I knew you were coming I’d have baked a cake..

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!

Retro Love.. A shoot.

When Katy of What Katy Did Next got in touch to see if I’d be interested in doing a retro shoot for Thimble & Bobbin’s homewares range I don’t think I even hesitated. Katy’s wonderful styling has been the driving force behind all out past shoots, and I knew she’d do a sterling job organising another shoot for Lauren’s gorgeously crafted bits and bobs.

Here is a sneak peek from the day…. Hope you liiiiike!
