Enchanting bridal headwear from Ellsewhere Bride

May 15, 2013

Natalie (the immensely talented designer and creator of Ellsewhere) needed some photos to showcase her new bridal headpieces, and when I saw her fantastic collection I was more than happy to oblige! Have a look at her website: she not only makes beautiful headwear, but also the coolest animal masks I’ve ever seen, eerily real prosthetics, and adorable little steampunkish monsters. Love it all!

The dresses we used are by the lovely Charlotte of Wilden Bride, and Natalie and Mel (our gorgeous model) did Mel’s hair and make-up themselves. Oh, multi-talented people; I love them.

Alice in Wonderland {Wedding inspiration}

March 14, 2013

Long ago, before the Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland movie came out, I had a vague idea of doing an Alice-themed shoot; but as with all vague ideas that never get anywhere beyond that stage, I just didn’t get around to it. Then suddenly Alice was everywhere: there were real weddings, inspiration shoots, Wonderland-themed DIY projects, and doing one of my own just seemed like overkill. But along the way I’d been picking up bits and pieces that I thought would work in the shoot if it ever happened.

Then we made the decision to move to England, and I realised that I’d better do the shoot before I had to decide what to do with the props when I packed up my home! I also had the perfect “Alice” in mind: Sara, with whom I’d worked at a bookshop a few years before. My landlady and friend, Mel, who owns a wardrobing/costume business, and does make-up as well (she even did my own make-up for my wedding in 2008), had the perfect little white dress, which I supplemented with a blue bow I’d found in a box at my community theatre group! Mel did Sara’s make-up as well. The flowers, vases and belljars were provided by my friend Eve of Splendid Affairs – I had a definite vision of moss, mushrooms and belljars – and I bought some mixed mushrooms at the supermarket, which I added in myself. Everything else – the keys, clock, pocketwatch, necklace, etc -belonged to me, and we found a way to use them to add to the theme!
