The big day came, the sun shone, and the vintage shoot was shot.
I have to begin with the hugest thank you to everyone involved for making it such a success.
A special mention has to go to Emma and Ella of Two Little Birds vintage boutique fame. They styled the shoot, provided fabulous outfits and gorgeous props. Their enthusiasm and support throughout the whole process was marvellous. You are fabulous girls, honestly!
Then mentions have to go to (in no particular order), Lovelane Caravans, Memories on Film, Big Beautiful Bunting, Flowers by Clowance, Make up by Ella, Kerry Prynn hair stylist, The Big Fat Cake Company and… my parents and sister (why my family? Read on!)…
The day started a little misty but once that cleared we were treated to a most welcome day of sunshine. Once the girls were made up by Make up by Ella, it was time for their locks to get trussed up. On realising there was no electricity at Lovelane Caravans, hair stylist Kerry jumped into her car… I thought she’d had enough and given up on the day, but she quickly returned sporting a victorious smile… the lovely family at the local farm had agreed to let Kerry set up her curlers in their kitchen! So, another thank you at this point to the local family farm Roskilly’s.
Girls made up and ready to rock, we had a brief fairy cake break – I’d roped my parents and sister in as caterers for the day, so we enjoyed regular deliveries of delicious homemade fayre to keep us sugar and energy fuelled throughout the shoot.
The shoots went well, we did two different looks consisting of hair/make-up and outfit changes. Funny stories were told and a delicious tea party lunch was enjoyed by all. Once the two looks were done ‘n’ dusted we managed to fit in a third ‘mini shoot’ where Dion donned her wedding dress, and Tonia her bridesmaid dress.
And then, it was a wrap! A celebratory cream tea (homemade scones, thanks Mum!) and off we went.
So again… a huge thanks to everyone involved. I look forward to working with you all again soon.
Now, onto the important point of the photos. There were quite a few and I can’t post them all. I’ve picked a few favourites but if enough people post comments I’ll add the link to the full set. Here ya go…
