I’m going to start by saying that I don’t normally photograph styled shoots.. Thinking about it now, this is probably only the second one I’ve covered in the last 3 or 4 years. However, after a few chats with the lovely Jo from the TWIA’s East of England award winning stylist One Curious Dream about her fabulous ideas, I opted to make a bit of an exception…
When Jo and I first started talking about the shoot, the plan had been to shoot in a simply stunning barn on the Norfolk coast. With 3 days to go before the date however, the forecast changed somewhat to sub-zero temperatures and snow – leading us to have a bit of a re-think and relocate to a somewhat unusual setting; a disused office space in the centre of Norwich!
With a crack team of suppliers on-board and shooting alongside the awesome Mike Savory for some behind the scenes footage, the results truly speak for themselves.
As a quick role call: Styling & Props were all courtesy of Jo & her fabulous team from One Curious Dream; Lydia from Rambling Rose Florists handled the flowers & foliage walls; Brooke from Boho Beauty Box looked after hair & make-up for our model, Brittany Dixon; Bekka from B’s Bakes provide some of her sublime cakes; Halfhitch macramé supplied chair backs & mandalas; beautiful calligraphy from Mango Tree London and dresses were from Lucky Sixpence Bridal.
All I can really add is that I hope you love the results as much as we all do!
Bold, unusual & colourful… done!
