I've enjoyed working with the Creative Hair Team from The Bank Hairdressing in Brigg throughout the year. They now also have a dedicated Bridal Team for all your Wedding beauty needs. Together with Stephanie Kate Bridal Couture, we did a shoot at the beautiful Cave Castle.
Cave Castle is such an amazing venue, it is located just the other side of the Humber Bridge. We went with 3 models, 3 hairstylists and a makeup artist on this shoot, along with myself and Stephanie. With 5 dresses to shoot we had an early start and were kindly offered a room to prepare our models in by the wonderful staff at Cave Castle.
Mel and her Bridal Team from The Bank worked really hard on preparing the girls ready for the shoot. We had some amazing creative hairstyles, put together with classic makeup looks by Heather. I was amazed at how quickly the girls managed to create some of these styles, the ideas they had for hair were incredible.
As always Stephanie had some stunning dresses ready for this shoot. Featuring plenty of lace and layers of tulle. Cave Castle is such a wonderful venue for a Wedding, both inside and out. It has a grand staircase, with beautiful features and lighting and the grounds are stunning with a lake and plenty of greenery. The combination of the venue, the hair and the dresses made for a truly magical Bridal shoot.
Last year I worked with Kiran of Mohani Bikinis to launch her unique collection of Pool Party bikinis. I was super excited when she got in touch again this year to release her new SS17 collection and needing them shooting.
Kiran's business has gone from strength to strength over the last year and her collection has grown from not just bikinis, but also Pool Party accessories to style up your Summer!
We planned to do a studio shoot for her website to show off her new collection. We felt a pink background would suit the vibe Kiran was going for and even had a giant inflatable Flamingo on the set.
Kiran's collection is also now available on ASOS. Follow the link below to grab your own glamorous Pool Party outfit!
I'd wanted to do a Whimsical Woodland Bridal shoot for a while now. I shared my ideas with Stephanie Kate Bridal Couture, who had a colection of dresses that would fit perfectly with the theme. We started to put together a team to help us bring my vision to life.
I was really excited to do this shoot as I was working with a few new people whose work I really admired. We put together the perfect team and Hazel was kind enough to let us use Hirst Priory for the location and to also do hair and makeup on our three models.
Everyone worked super hard to put together this shoot, especially Julie of Bridge St Interiors. I met with Julie a few weeks before to talk over ideas and show her my mood board for the shoot. We clicked straight away and she knew exactly what was needed to style our shoot.
Stephanie had also met Tracey of Silver Boo Handmade Jewellery the weekend before and asked if she could adorn our models with her beautiful handmade pieces. We had a huge selection of jewellery to use in silver, gold and rose gold. Her work is just beautiful!
I also asked Stephanie of Little Yellow House Flower Shop if she could put together some floral decorations and make us two bouquets for the shoot. I have seen Stephanie's work before when she has done the flowers for some of my Brides. She did a fab job with the colours and creativity of her flower decorations.
We had a great day on this shoot, and even though it was only March, the weather was warm and stayed beautiful for us all day. We shot 6 dresses, on 3 models and had loads of fun shooting in this beautiful woodland area which is now available to use for your outdoor Wedding ceremony. We also did some of our shoot inside the wonderful Hirst Priory, the perfect blank canvas for any style of Wedding.
