The day was lovely – and we were glad we moved the shoot back by a week, as after a very slow start Nature picked up the pace and we even got a few flowers:-)
Danielle from the venue organized our changing room and sorted out a very appreciated tea, coffee and biscuits.
Everybody was in sity by 10.30, unpacked and ready to work so whilethe boys were walking around the venue discussing the best places to shoot, the girls started to get ready..
Sarah setting up her tools…
hair flowers from Lizzie!
stunning shoes from Tracy ( Crystal Calla Tiara)
and loads and loads of jewellery from Tina ( Unfound Door) – all ours to pick from!
First was Briar Rose – here shot in a Sleeping Beauty convention… took us ages to get the light and composition in that room…
outside, the light was much better and we were way happier with the results:
loving the soft 70ties feel to it – very hippie, flower power mood here
and the best two shots , the true Sleeping Beauty images:
sleeping so peacefully…
Next was Gem in Alice, the 50ties corseted frock.
picture i snatched on my phone while changing…
looks everybody was snatchign photos on their mobiles… 🙂
happy snappers – Sarah with two phones no less!
and a professional one:-)
Next in line was Anette, sporting the elven Lily of the Valley – a true wood nymph!
As Anett was climbing the trees, Gem was being prepared for the next dress – the model who the dress was for cancelled the day before, so Gem stepped in – the dress was a bit too big but it still looked great on her!
Sarah working her magic… pic by Lucas
she looked so gorgeous that everybody was snapping away…
In the meantime I was also to stand in for the model who cancelled – so Sarah got some more work to do on me!
going from the blond to the brunette…
love this shot – stunnign tiara form Tracy, l;ovely earrings from Tina and the bouquet from Tina ( haberdashery bride…)
and the last frock – Helena, for Anett, who had to be coerced to emerge the Lily of the Valley corset ( she is a tighlacer so corsets are very much within her sphere of interests!)). Sarah worked her magic and transformed her from the nymph into a silnet movie era star – 20ties suited her very much indeed!
Anett having fun 🙂
and one of my absolute favourites:
The whole shoot took us several hours, and some of us felt we deserved cuppa and a scone at Frosts – just around the corner…
more pictures can be seen here:
and , to finish the post, a few ‘after hours’ shots..
sleeping beauty – well…. a bottle of whisky would complete the image nicely…. 🙂
Gem trying to eat her sandwich in a dignified way
when not snapping away, Paul makes quite a model too!
important people on a mission…
having a sneak peak at the guys at work…
