I always feel so honoured when a shoot is submitted to me, having styled my own (which featured on the fab Love My Dress, I wanted to style and plan weddings but then realised I preferred the writing and publishing side of things and you need to be wonderfully insane for the job!) I know how hard everyone works and to be trusted with the end result is always such a pleasure.
This chic city shoot is the perfect way to start off 2015 as it was inspired by New Year festivities. I am always up for black tie, I wish I were invited to more black tie events that were actually black tie, none of this wish washy ‘and the girls wore slutty bandage dresses’ black tie. This shoot is my idea of a wonderfully styled New Year, I may take inspiration for my next dinner party because I love those vibrant candles.
Please make sure you scroll down and enjoy the short film too!
The concept of the shoot was to focus on Bridal Fashion & Detail in a City Environment with a hint of Festive/New Year/Black Tie Feel.
With a Black, White & Gold theme with a splash of Vibrant colour.
All gowns were from Emma Hunt London & we also featured her new, stunning LBD range.
The venue Hackney Town Hall is steeped in history and has been restored to its Art Deco glory, an underestimated venue that surprised me with its fine detail, size and amenities a real gem in this part of London and big thanks to Emma at Coco Venues for securing for us.
The shoot was all put together by a great team, we worked together in the weeks leading up to the shoot online to establish the style, logistics, props & furniture required, a great collective of wedding professionals that I would heartedly recommend and look forward to working with again.
