A Cold Day In Bognor…

February 14, 2009

I was going to wait until I had been sent more of the results, but I’m so excited about how these have turned out that I have to post them right away!

Yesterday afternoon, myself and David got in my rickety little ford ka and traipsed down to Bognor Regis (nice name huh?) to get some new shots to use on the site and for some up and coming (and very exciting) Rock ‘n Roll Bride promotion (more info on this to come very soon!)  It took us about 2 hours to get there and I’d been up since 4.30 am for my ‘day job’. YAAAWN!

We got there at about 3.30pm and found a hotel that allowed me to get changed in their toilet and doll myself up.  It was rather hilarious trying to get me into the dress again – I didn’t have a lacing lesson a needless to say David was as clueless as me, I did get stuck a few times!  I have to say, this shoot really made me love my dress again, I’d almost forgotten how bloody gorgeous it is.  We headed out to the pier, a rough a ready looking wall and the sea front for a variety of shots and styles.  I was bloooooody freeeeezing by the end but I think you’ll agree it was all worth it!  I am SO happy with the results, aren’t they fantastic!?  We were so lucky with the light – it really made the photographs.

My fabulous shoes were personalised by the amazing Shoe Missy.  I actually only ordered them on Wednesday thinking I wouldn’t get them on time for the shoot, but I figured I could use them another time.  However when Anna, the shoe designer heard about the shoot she rushed the order through and was able to get them shipped to me in time to use.  They arrived only half an hour before we had to leave, lucky huh!?  We were SO happy we could use the shoes – they really became a feature of the photographs.

Anyway, enough of my ramblings, I’m sure you’re dying to see them right?  Well here they are…weep at the fabulousness!

  1. Love these, very different vibe to your ‘usual’ shoot, I guess because of it being studio based. Very cool. LOVE your hair here too!

  2. Eeeeeek my first day back from holiday and what a treat to start the week with – love these and can’t wait to see the real thing in bookshops! Love you!!

  3. what a glamorous life you lead! the shoot looks like a lot of fun. also that crown is fantastic, I’d love to know where it’s from?! (I was in claire’s the other day among the pre-teen girls trying on the multitude of plastic crowns they have, shameful? yes, also a very entertaining way to spend half an hour! plus i love how much kids love my hair) x
