So I don’t usually post sneak peeks on the blog (I prefer to tease you on Twitter and Facebook!) but I am so in love with these that I just had to make sure that every single of of your saw them. I headed down to Whitstable beach yesterday with photographer Eliza Claire, Vintage planner and stylist Tiffany Grant-Riley and hair & make up artist Elbie Van Eeden. It really didn’t feel like work – it was just a girl’s day out in fact! And although I’m proper shattered (and quite sunburnt ooops!) the results are looking like they are aaall going to be worth it.
Wanna see a sneak peek then do ya?! Hold tight my lovelies, the full set and my report will be on it’s way to you as soon as physically possible! I’ll even tell you about the OAP blasting Barry White out of his scooter. I kid you not.
First of all, well done to everyone for all your patience. I have been very cruel and teased you for weeks about this new project (especially on Twitter hehe!) but I’m pretty sure you’re going to forgive me when you see what I’ve been up to…You must also forgive me for the super wordy nature of this post, but there has been so much work behind the scenes to make this shoot happen that I can’t possibly do it justice without an epic explanation.
A little while ago, the amazing Emma Case and I were talking about how crazy our lives are; about how everything seems to have exploded over the last few months and about how many awesome people we’ve met. “Let’s do a shoot together” one of us said “hell yeah!” said the other. After we’d decided to actually go through with it and (as Emma later confessed to me) after a major bit of “OMG what the hell am I doing”/freakin’ out about it, a date was set. We didn’t really know what the plan was. “Let’s just go and have a play” we said.
Then I got-to-thinking. I know so many amazing wedding vendors, who I recommend to my readers all the time, wouldn’t it be great to try and get some of them involved too? Then, we would not only have a proper amazing set up to work with but it’d be a fantastic opportunity to share some love and really show you what this kick ass group of wedding warriors can do!
If you don’t do anything else, make sure you pop by tomorrow to see the full set of my latest photo sesh in all it’s epic glory. I will also be sharing the full list of everyone who donated their time and services to the shoot.
It’s going to be so flippin’ awesome. I might die with excitement.
Click on the images to make them bigger and read-able if you want to see what Julia said about me and my posing – Yes I am a big poser. It’s probably best to open in a new tab/window instead of using the lightbox view as I’ve made the scans maaahusive so you can read it easily.
Anyone that knows me will know that I’m terrible at keeping secrets…so this has been very very hard for me to keep schtum!
Last week I got an email from Richard of FX Films (based in Oxford) asking if he could pop round and make a little film about little me. Of course I jumped at the chance – I am a big show off after all! Stand by and prepare yourself for some serious awesome. Richard is an actual genius – he made me look so good and the music choice is utterly perfect!
The only thing I stipulated was that Henry & Rachel my Maine Coon kitties were in it (and they stole the show didn’t they?!) Oh the cute… So here’s me on a ‘normal day’ – getting up, kittens, make up, blogging, shoes, car (I love my car!) and hanging out in the park. So. Much. Fun.
