When photographer Nicola Dixon asked to loan some of my gowns for a styled shoot she was organising, I jumped at the chance. I’d seen the dreamy images she’d created previously at Camp Katur featuring dresses made by my friend Hayley of Glory Days, and been very impressed.
Nicola arranges styled shoots for photographers to attend and build up their portfolios. This time around, she picked the heavenly glasshouse and gardens of Braisty Estate in Summerbridge. She invited some exceptional wedding creatives to collaborate, and the results produced were just beautiful. Real couple Billie and Oli modeled on the day, and Billie looked INCREDIBLE in two of my gowns: Peony lace top over Camellia silk slip, and Dahlia backless dress.
I always love seeing the differences in the way photographers capture a similar scene, and here I’ve featured images from four photographers I was really impressed by (I could have included loads more images, but thought I’d better limit myself to four as there are already a lot of pictures here!). Thanks so much to everyone who was involved, and to the photographers who captured everything so wonderfully.
