The van was packed for another shoot, my Mother came along for the ride. We were lucky, it wasn’t too far away, in familiar territory near Sudbury in Suffolk!
It was organised by the very talented wedding dress designer Charlotte from Wilden Bride She previously worked for Jenny Packham working on special gowns for high profile clients including Kate Middleton and Dita Von Teese. Not often you will see both those names in the same sentence!
When I arrived, everyone was camped out in the gorgeous railway carriage taking pictures of the beautiful model Kira Harper.
In these scenes: Bike, Marjorie, yellow shelves, crate, vintage books, cream pie crust table.
The LOVE sign is available to hire or buy from Pocketful of Dreams. Love these girls, I worked with Michelle on the Style Me Vintage: Weddings book with her and met Vicki at the book launch. She was a little too glamorous for me to stand next to! They have just launched their gorgeous new branding and website design. I feel slightly inferior when I see Michelle’s moodboards.
After dropping off everything for the railway carriage scenes, I wandered round the corner, to find Lizzie and her dashing partner Jim, setting up the Yurt. I can’t recommend Wedding Yurts enough, they are stunning. They put their heart and sole into their business, I’m hoping to see a lot of them this year.
How cute is this cute little pink Champagne Yurt with the stunnng chandelier. Once it was up, I proceeded to fill it with the remaining paraherenalia that I thought might fulfill the brief. A little shop with vintage till and a little sewing area. Of course, the screen had to come and how stunning does it look against that backdrop.
In these scenes: Floral screen, pink hostess trolley, metal till, weighing scales, glass jars, vintage tins, floral tray, pink dressing table stool, blue ladders, vintage books, shoe lasts, white desk, red radio, vintage suitcases, hat boxes and sewing machine.
Outside the Yurt, please take note of the very cute wood burning stove with it’s puff of gorgeous smoke.
In these scenes: Pink ladder, wooden cart, door chalkboard, chalkboard signs, vintage tins and Christy’s hat box.
I loved these images. They were taken at the very end of the day when Kira must have been so very cold and tired, but they are amazing. Sarah from Rose & Aster currently has one as her front website page.
Thanks Charlotte for asking me to be involved. You guys all did an amazing job.
I love that credit, here are some links to get you there!
