When my good friend and beautifully talented photographer Katherine Newman approached me a little while ago with a Bridal shoot she had just worked on, I was really excited to get it on the blog.  Not only is the headwear by HT Headwear and the dresses by Sally Lacock an attraction but the unique bridal shoot photographed by Katherine is beautiful, elegant and a stunning representation of the all the frabjous creative people involved – and this is what I love about photo shoots!!! When they’re pulled off really well, they’ll sell and this shoot makes me want to buy, buy, buy and add to my fast growing selection of headwear.  Oh, and the location is stunning!!!

Not only do I want the headwear but the COUCH! 🙂

 From Katherine:

“A good few months ago I had the privilege of working with some very talented artists within the wedding industry on this unique bridal shoot.  It was all put together by Helena Talbot of HT Headwear.  Helena hand makes the most incredible bridal headpeices and now jewellery too!

The vintage wedding gowns were made by the incredibly talented designer, Sally Lacock, I’m sure you’ll agree they were so perfectly suited to the beautiful models and the location and everything went off so perfectly on the day I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome!

I was absolutely blown away by the cakes and cupcakes made especially for the shoot by Renza of Delicieux Cakes she truly is an artist and I would highly recommend her for any bespoke cakes or cupcakes you may need as she catered perfectly for the theme and style of the shoot!

A big thank you to The Flower Room for the gorgeous flowers and the hair and make-up artists, Cassandra and Sophie for their incredible work, you gals are great!!

And last but not least, a big thank you to Helena for all her hard work planning the shoot, and for inviting me to take the photos on the day, it was an absolute pleasure to work with you!”

I’ve never followed trends as I disliked being just one of the crowd so my love for things that are different, unusual, beautiful and stylistic that I’d had all my life transformed into Alice in Weddingland.
