1st images from shoot

 Well this is the 1st image from the wedding shoot. All the models are not professionals we thought that this represented what we all do, which is taking you the bride and groom and making you the stars of your own show.

 The photographer SteelOrchid have done an amazing job considering the day was so overcast that even the rooms lighting was badly effected. So hats of to you both Chris and Mike for providing us with stunning images and these are just taster shots. 


This was taken in the Bridal suite at Haslington Hall.
 The amazing dress Bluebell and the jewellery in this shot was provided by Cheshire Bridal Wear A stunning fantasy of a dress, I think you'll all agree, we used this dress in one of our Black and White themed shoots based on a 30's 40's Hollywood masked ball . The mask we used for this shoot was the amazing filigree mask "Katherine" provided by  You can see it in more detail below.

Earrings were models own.

We set up one table as an example of how we would have dressed the 1930s slash 40's Hollywood feel table , more images and details still to come . The stunning arrangement was provided by Acer Florists website is and the amazing candelabra "Windsor" is from

Madison and Sarah Thanks to Sarah for letting us use Madison in the shoot and really saving my bacon. I know some of the images of you and Madison together are beautiful
Plus a hugh big extrodinary thanks to Bindi for being a true friend and stepping into the breach with an extra car for shifting all the items in a huge military manouver
Despite a few minor hiccups, the 4 year old model taking ill the night before at 10pm didn't have a 4 year old for shoot, rapidly replaced with the help of twitter and Madisons wonderful Mum @SarahBySarah at approx 10.15
Loss of my assistant due to car breaking down. and a couple of other minor hiccups. I think that all in all the shoot went amazingly well. I don't think you all realise just how fantastic you all were and how much you all achieved over the last couple of weeks, and especially how much you acheived on Sunday.
Sunday was a bit like having 6 weddings in one day, you all excelled yourselves and Im really proud to say that I have worked with all of you. I would happily recomend each and everyone of you to any of my clients,
Give yourselves a huge pat on the back
I feel a bit like the Bride at the time I knew more or less where everyone was and what they were doing. But I now can't remember my own name LOL
