I met Kate of Agnes & Bee at The Indie Wedding Fair in Manchester and was blown away by her incredible display there, so I was over the moon when she asked to borrow a gown for a shoot she was planning.
The Once Upon A Wedding stylists sought inspiration from the glamour of The Great Gatsby for this collaborative shoot, which features the wares of lots of talented local suppliers.
I worked with my studio neighbours here at Beehive Works on this little shoot – photographer Shelley Richmond and hair & make-up artist Jenn Edwards.
Living in Sheffield means we have plenty of access to urban backdrops and green spaces, plus the beauty of the Peak District on our doorstep, but for this shoot hair and make-up extraordinaire Jenn Edwards fancied something completely different, and headed to the coast.
Photographer Karina Lax of Richmond Pictures and Make-Up Artist Laura Gingell of Craft Sheffield collaborated to style several different bridal looks for this shoot at the stunning Pumping House venue in Ollerton.
Photographer Shelley Richmond had told me how incredible the wildflowers at Sheffield’s Manor Lodge were looking this summer, and they didn’t disappoint.
This dreamy beach shoot by photographer Meg Gisborne captures the movement in my dresses and veils so beautifully. Featuring my Amaryllis bias cut silk gown, Wild Lupin tiered lace dress, and Dahlia paneled lace gown.
This beauty of a shoot is the third one of Nicola Dixon’s that I’ve been involved with. Nicola puts on inspiration shoots for photographers to attend; curating all the details with a group of fantastic wedding industry creative and sourcing a couple to model on the day.
Bloom - by Shelly Richmond - is one of my favourite editorials to date - I just adore the colour and texture in this shoot.
This shoot was the second one of Nicola Dixon’s workshops for photographers I’d loaned dresses for, and the results were just as stunning as the last one.
When photographer Nicola Dixon asked to loan some of my gowns for a styled shoot she was organising, I jumped at the chance.
I’m a big fan of Debbie Carlisle’s accessories, and was delighted when she asked to borrow some of my gowns for her latest Wild Rose Collection shoot.
This gorgeously styled boho shoot was dreamed up and put together by Anna Straw of Anna’s Attic Event Styling. Irnham Hall near Grantham made the most beautiful location – how amazing is that glasshouse?
My second collaboration with fine art photographer Emma Pilkington was inspired by the chateaus and landscapes in the south of France, but shot on location in the Peak District.
For the second ever Rock Your Shot workshop – as organised by S6 Photography and featuring some of the best wedding photographers – I asked some of my brides to bring along their husbands and play at being models for the afternoon.
Hannah from All Things Borrowed – a brand new furniture hire and styling company in Yorkshire – got in touch to tell me about a shoot she was planning to showcase thir wares, and asked me to loan a couple of dresses for her gorgeous model Nina to wear.
Lucy and Rich were the perfect models for S6 Photography’s latest workshop. Lucy wears my Peony lace top and Larkspur silk skirt beautifully. As usual, Jon has created some fabulous portraits out in the wilds of our wonderful city.
The lovely Shelley Richmond ran a Lottery-funded workshop for 10 photographers last month, and used a few of my gowns for the bridal styled shoot she styled for the second half of the day.
My final seasonal collaboration with Shelley Richmond turned out just beautifully. The sun shone on a clear Autumn afternoon - the first time on these four shoots that we haven’t had to dodge the rain!
Summer Haze is the third of four seasonal collaborations between Shelley Richmond and I. So far it has rained on our shoot days for our winter, spring and summer shoots – I can only hope we’ll be having an Indian summer by the time we get around to our Autumn shoot (but I doubt it).
