Summer Bride 2013 Collection

Image

 

 Well, I must say it took Paul record time to sort out the official images – 2 weeks and all done – brilliant:-) all editing done, we can now have a proper blog  entry! 

 I have to admit this shoot was slightly problematic  to organize as just a few weeks before the date the venue changed their mind and decided to charge us for using the premises. Well, that wasn’t going to happen, so we needed t find another venue available on that day ( many of us had already booked a day of work). Fortunately lovely Allyson from St.Audries Park, our own venue, stepped in, and put us in touch with Laura from Gosfield Hall- a truly spectacular place in Essex. Laura was only too happy to help us us and the shoot was sorted out in no time at all, it was a bit of a drive, but not too much – and the location was more than worth spending two hours in the car:-)

 

We picked Sarah, out usual MUA and Emily, one of our models, on the way through Bedford andwe off we went, in a rather convivial atmosphere:-)

travelling in style…

On arrival, Laura greeted us and showed us around the venue – needless to say, we were hugely impressed and started planning the shoot straight away. The boys had their own room to store their toys, and Sarah was more than happy with our changing and prep room

Image

 

 Paul and Jason arrived shortly after, and Anette, another model joined us before 11. everything was ready for the shoot. we started with the Edwardian Bride – getting ready photos., shot amidst the elegant splendour of the  Queen’s Suite..

Image

 

Sarah worked her magic on my face and hair, and i was ready to be laced in the long line Edwardian corset… the result below…

Image

antique camisole, and a corset and drawers by me:-)

Image

Paul wasn’t too happy about my period stockings but in the end the ‘wool socks’ worked out just fine..

Image

absolutely loving the antique effect on this one:-)

Image

being a wistful bride…

 Paul didn’t take any other full gown pictures of this one – Lucas did it instead – ,:-)

Image

 As Emily was preparing for her  session,  Paul was taking a  few product shots:-)

Image

  Then it was Emily in Arabella – very much a Disney princess!

Next in line was Anette transformed into a Grecian goddess…

I  manged to snatch a quick photo on my mobile too – Anett’s reaction when she saw the room – absolutely breathtaking splendour of the Bride suite…

and some more of Paul’s magic

Image

All that excitement meant we were quite hungry at that point – but luckily enough Laura was  ready with our lunch – freshly prepared by the chef – and it was simply delicious!

Refreshed, we had two more frocks to do – first Emily in a rather stunning corsetted outfit…
