St Valentine's Day
Today is all about LOVE and with that in mind I'm sharing some alternative bridal style with you. For some of us the traditional white wedding isn't really rocking our boat, so how about opting for something more interesting and daring?
The images from this shoot were all taken by my dear friend and all round amazing lady Georgina Piper Photographer. We work together a lot and it's always such a pleasure to have her photograph my work! She's an amazing photographer and no one can do light quite like her- check out her images of the moon an night sky on her Instagram feed- Breathtaking!
The lovely people at St Benedict's Bed and Breakfast let us takeover their out of this world home for an afternoon. I've really never seen anything like it- from the organ upstairs to the tiny chapel in the garden, it was like a Victorian Gothic fairy tale, an impression added to by the snow gently falling outside.
The shoot also gave me the chance to work with Madrugar Millinery, who creates the most beautiful headpieces I've ever seen. I was so excited to see Katharine's work with my dresses, and really it was just such a treat. Her website is under construction but check out her Facebook page for more info.
I was also really pleased to have The Flower Girl designing the flowers for the shoot as I've been a huge fan since meeting her at a local wedding fair and her romantic blooms were just perfect.
Our gorgeous models Anna, Simone and Hannah had their hair and makeup beautifully done by Katy Watts MUA and Tracey Griffin.
Hannah wearing the Pearl bias cut dress in silk crepe and satin.
Simone in her custom made Lana dress in bird print topped off with the most incredible sequin tassel beret by Madrugar Millinery
Anna in a red silk Violet gown with opulent blooms by Sophie The Flower Girl and custom made veil by Madrugar Millinery- there's no such thing as too much red on St Valentine's Day!
A new dress style for this year- The Viola in black rose lace with cream silk underlay.
If you would like to know more about anything in this photo shoot, please get in touch and if you think you'd like to have a custom made gown for your wedding or any special occasion, I'd love to hear from you!
Whatever you do today, and whoever you're loving, I hope you have an amazing love filled day!
