Sunshine...we've finally had some in the last week or so! Hurray! Between some very typical rainy yorkshire days I've seen some beautiful blue skies and its gotten me feeling all fuzzy and ready for the summer!
This week I got to work with an awesome team of creative ladies on a bohemian summer bridal photoshoot, focussing on beauty looks and gorgeous seasonal flowers. I can't begin to tell you how much fun I had shooting this, bringing my love of beauty photography and wedding photography together was such a lovely way to spend an afternoon!
Providing our lovely flowers and floral crowns for the shoot were the wonderful team at Bloom and Bridal. They made two stunning flower crowns containing seasonal, colourful flowers and we even had a bouquet and some spare flowers to have a little fun with (cue the model having things thrown over her and very almost glued to her...she was a trooper!)
On hair and makeup we had the wonderful Beckie Stirk, who used the colours of the floral arrangements to inspire the beauty looks. Who says that bridal beauty has to be all neutral colours anyway? She created looks with soft pinks, bursts of sunshine yellow and fresh, glowing skin, perfect for a summer bride with a difference!
Our bride for the day was the lovely model and fitness instructor Lisa Revitt who looked absolutely stunning, even when we were throwing petals at her and attacking her with a hairdryer to get the right amount of "wind" in her hair. Needless to say she was a total trooper!
I'll be meeting up with Bloom and Bridal and Beckie Stirk again next month to work on a very exciting and creative bridal shoot so stay posted for more about that! In the mean time check out some of the behind the scenes shots from the day...I can't wait to get to editing them all!
