This is not the first time…and probably not the last, that I have completely missed Valentines Day!
Something very special happened this year though. My dresses were featured on one of the biggest wedding blogs in the UK, Rock n Roll Bride! I was approached by the fab photographer Sarah London who was organising a Valentines inspired shoot and wanted to use my dresses as alternative wedding dresses. I was over the moon that she had thought of me after crossing paths at a few wedding fairs.
After turning up on my front door step and bundling my dresses in her boot, she was off! All I knew was that it would be shot on a farm and it would be freezing! Sarah had managed to get some great suppliers in the wedding industry together and knew that they would come up with something rather spectacular. I waited with baited breath to see the result.
I was blown away by the images! Everyone had clearly worked really hard to pull this shoot together and the model looked stunning in my dresses! Styled shoots are there to show you what your chosen wedding suppliers can do with a little imagination and know how, so if you’ve ever thought “I can do that”, just be aware of all the hours spent searching for props, all the training to do hair and make-up, all the skill it takes to make beautiful and well made accessories and the clever skill and artistry it takes to capture it all on film. Sit back, take a breather and get the professionals in to style your day, cos then it just might turn out a little like this.
So here it is, A Very Late Valentine to you all…
