So here they are! The magnificent photo's from my very first professional shoot. I met with my wonderful photographer this morning for coffee and a viewing. While I sat there with my hands wrapped around my mug I couldn't contain my joy. I am so thrilled with results and I couldn't recommend Marion from Life Photography highly enough. I wanted to jump across the table and kiss her cute little pixie face. Thanks miss Maz, you are a legend.
Of course miss Maz wasn't the only special lady involved in helping me pull this all together. Dianne from Cape of Love was absolutely integral to the days success. She provided props and styling on the day but also helped me find my photographer, make up artists and florist. If you are arranging any sort of event in the South-west Cape of Love should be your first port of call. She knows EVERYONE. She knows every venue. She pretty much knows everything. Plus she has a shed full of vintage props and an eye for all things pretty. She was such a joy to have on the shoot. Her beaming face warmed everyone and kept us in high spirits despite the chilly winter day.
Tracy from Bespoke Wedding flowers contributed all of our floral arrangements. I asked for something organic, mismatched and vibrant and boy did she deliver! I know she spent the day before hand picking primrose and succulence and berries and foliage from local bushland and gardens. So much love and care went into the preparation of these bouquets and all of the ladies felt so special carrying them. Even our groom had a little succulence pin on his braces.
Danielle and her team from the Dunsborough Lauren Wood Studio provided make-up on the day. The girls were treated to the full make-over and each ladies make-up was tailored to suit the dress she was modelling. Danielle specialises in fifties and vintage style make-up. The girls looked absolutely stunning.
Most of all I want to thank my models. This spunky lot are all close friends of mine. They all devoted their weekend to my project as a special favour to me. They are not professional models, but I don't think that you would guess that from the pictures. They made the day so much fun for me. My gorgeous groom, Adam, I seriously think that every one of the girls on set was in love with you by the end of the day. You had such a presence and had all the ladies relaxed and feeling wonderful. Thank-you for all your effort and advise. My sensational Bride, Shay, I don't think a more beautiful woman has ever existed. My Bridesmaids, Ash, Zoe and Kel, You all looked incredible and I had the best weekend with you. Thanks so much for your time.
So that's the end of my gushing. I hope you enjoy the photo's. Please feel free to link back to this blog but please don't use any of these photo's on your own websites without permission from me first.
