It snowed. And, well, because I’m from Africa, I was more than super excited. I pretty much thought it was the best thing I’d ever seen on the ground. Which meant that I had to do a shoot in it, of course!
Charlotte (lovely designer of lovely dresses) and I had been talking for a while about doing a trash the dress in one of her wedding dresses, so when snow was forecast I figured we should combine the two! Charlotte brought two gorgeous dresses and her brave face along with her, and we hit up a cemetery in south-west London and frolicked a bit in the unexpected sun. And then shivered in a cold and muddy park. Charlotte even lay down in the snow for me! Oh, the power I have…
Here are a few pics of our adventures.
Finally I can share these images with you! Aside from a couple of Facebook sneak peeks, and a pair that I threw into my “Best of 2012″ blogpost, I’ve had these waiting for months to be blogged – they were lined up for a feature in Unique Bride’s latest issue, and I wasn’t allowed to share them until the magazine came out!
The shoot was the brainchild of Lau Delpech from Frenchmade, and she pulled together some amazing suppliers to make it come to life! I loved that I could go a little more editorial, a little more high fashion (all those seasons of Next Top Model had to be good for something!) than I usually can at a wedding. And all the details…well, details make me sing. I loved the whole vintage-meets-gothic setup! Just gorgeous.
