At the end of last year I was having a catch up coffee with my lovely friend Carmel who I went to school with. We hadn’t seen each other in years (apart from facebook which seems to be the norm these days) and we got chatting about business - as you do.
I was in the process of resigning from the Police service to do my Makeup and Glamavan full time and Carmel had been doing amazing with her Makeup since doing her Makeup course and beauty blogging for Local Mums Online. We decided we should organise a styled shoot together and came up with this mood board from Pinterest (photography owners unknown)
I really don’t think it could of gone any better. After creating our mood board and setting the theme of Spring, Boho, Festival, Outdoor Hen Party & Wedding shoot, it was so great to have so many local suppliers interested.
Carmel had secured our venue at Russettings in Sutton Registar Office, Sutton, Surrey and we had the date set. The only thing that was not looking great was the dark and gloomy weather, which was really quite a big factor considering its an outdoor shoot - with floor length blush coloured dresses - in the rain and mud - BUT … someone must of been looking down on us, because the rain held off and it was an absolute cracking day.
Everyone pulled together and I can’t thank people enough. Carmel got the necessities together as it was an all dayer - I just can’t function without a coffee or a pain au chocolat!
The models were fantastic doing their Spring modelling in winter conditions. Every supplier there put 110% into their work and it really does reflect in the photos and video.
So without further ado … here is the most amazing videography from Colin Miller from Colin D Miller Photography posted below followed by each and every wonderful supplier with photography taken Jess Door from J’door Photography.
