Last week was a dream come true for me, my first Bridal photoshoot with an a amazing team brought together by me. This shoot was extra special as we featured real brides who's beautiful wedding I was a guest at the previous weekend. Above we see our brides being tweaked and preened by our talented duo Kate Lodge Hair and make up by Laura V Makeup. Gorgeous work gals!!
We shot 2 alfresco looks which was a bit of a mean feat especially given the hand the weather delt us... dramatic skies, drizzle and WIND, GAIL FORCE WIND! My floral display took a beating, smoke bombs were abandoned and we lost a few items across the field and far away but were not deterred and it was a beautiful day. Images were once more shot by Hannah Barnes from All of My Days Photography and these are a series of sneak peaks mostly caught on her phone and a few on mine of the lead up.
I absolutely love a mood board, they offer such a useful insight into the look and feel i am imagining and are great fun to put together. The first shoot was to be floral and whimsical and a little bit through the looking glass and the second our signature style here at Rose&Dandy; bohemian and wild with a delicate edge.
My floral display before the winds so viciously distributed it across the fields... *sigh*
Making prep at Dusk.
Stunning stationary by the delightfully talented Wonderland Invites sat so pretty on our tablescape. I put together flat lays captured by Hannah to fully show off their exquisiteness: (phone shots)
We had the great privillage of featuring madly delicious delights by Cambridge based patisserie chef Gourmandises. Let me tell you, below was one of the best things i have even chowed down on!
Confectionary from The Littlelollipopshop was by far the most beautiful thing the royal mail has ever delivered to me...
This little guy was the nuts! Thank you Animalesque for lending her, she sat very pretty indeed!
Lauren's beautiful delicate top was from Minnas label Indie Brides London. Loving their work!
Jens dress was a stunning bespoke make by her friend and costumier Charlotte Totfield.
These beautiful Evedon wellington boots were lent by Joules for a bride who prefers a practical choice for her something blue!
Lent us a pair of their totally bedazzleing Lazy River shoes in green!! Jaws hit the floor!
Rings were by the very talented BOO jewelry.
