I am mightily excited to share a few sneak peeks from this week’s photo shoot. I was asked by the lovely Lisa & Tania of
Magpie Vintage if I’d like to come and be their ‘celebrity’ (ha!) model for their latest (and in my opinion greatest!) promotional photo shoot. The pair are expanding their business from vintage jewellery to fashion!
The Rose Collection launches in September 2011 and each piece is a lovingly created one off – reworked from genuine vintage articles – just like their jewellery that they’ve become so well known for. If you’re interested in purchasing any of these stunning pieces then
be sure to get in touch with them!
I’ll be blogging the full shoot later next month, however there was such a buzz around the day (and the fact that I was asked to get on a horse!) that I simply HAD to share a few sneak peeks with you all asap. There are more outfits and locations to come too. I even got to channel my inner goth!
Charlotte was crazily beautiful and her candy floss hair was EPIC!
At the end of the shoot,
David McNeil and I (we love each other) decided we should get Annamarie Stepney to take a few impromptu shots of us in classic ‘engagement shoot’ poses. I think we make quite a lovely couple don’t you? I’m pretty sure these shots won’t be making it into the final lookbook though. What a shame.
Check me out on the horse! How brave am I?!
Thanks again to everyone involved! I seriously can’t wait to see the rest, can you?

I sneak peeked this shoot back in February but I had to wait until now to share the full thing...sorry to keep you all waiting, it was hard for me too!
I was asked by Lisa & Tania, the vintage jewellery aficionados behind Magpie Vintage if I'd like to model for their latest campaign - the launch of their brand new clothing line. Needless to say I didn't need much convincing, even when they told me I had to get on a horse!
The Big Fat Wedding Blogger’s Photo Shoot – The Final Results & Video!
February 21, 2011
What do you get when you cross 6 wedding bloggers, The Wedding Photographer of the Year, London’s most stylish & gorgeous wedding boutique and a Hasselblad? Why, The Big Fat Wedding Blogger’s Photo Shoot of course!
My inspiration for this shoot came from the fact that I had seen a lot of big brands in The States using fashion bloggers to model for and promote their new lines. I loved the idea and thought it could really work for the UK wedding market. After all, wedding blogs are the new wedding magazines right?! I approached Rachel at Wimbledon-based Luella's Boudoir if she’d be up for letting us run wild in her shop and thankfully she loved the idea!
So, We Got Married… (Again!)
October 2, 2013
One of the questions I get asked over and over again is what Gareth and I would do differently if we were getting married today. Of course my answer is always "so much!" Both of us have changed a considerable amount over the past five and a half years and our style and tastes couldn't be more different to how they were back in 2008.
A New York State of Mind: Rooftop Dance Party
May 28, 2012
II've been obsessed with Made U Look Photography for as long as I've been blogging. Even in the early days they were wonderful to me and allowed me to feature their beautiful weddings as much as possible. Christina, Marielle & Alie are amazing girls, and when Christina and I started whimsically chatting about one day doing a shoot together I knew we'd make it happen somehow!
A New York State of Mind: A Hop Skip & Jump Across The Brooklyn Bridge
June 1, 2012
So here we have it, the final installment of Gala & my frolic around NYC! When Christina & I first starting thinking about shooting in New York there was one place top of both of our lists - The Brooklyn Bridge! Iconic the world over, nothing screams New York more than this structure... or the amazing views from it!
After a slightly hair-raising cab ride through China Town and over the Manhattan Bridge, we arrived in Brooklyn and proceeded to walk the 1.1 miles over the East River towards Manhattan.
Kat & Gareth by Made You Look Studios – Who, by the way, you totally need to book for your Rock n Roll wedding…(Just Sayin’)
June 9, 2012
Apologies, you're about to see a lot of photos of me & Gareth being soppy, silly and cute in New York... but I guess that's what happens when the Made U Look girls shoot you. It's neigh-on impossible to cut them down because they are all. so. good. This is by far both Gareth & my favourite shoots we've done together. n fact I will definitely be getting some many of these babies printed to plaster our house with.
A New York State of Mind: West Village Wanderers
May 30, 2012
After the exertion of jumping around the rooftop, Gala & I decided a much more leisurely pace was required for the second part of our day. So we hopped in a cab with the Made U Look girls and headed towards the uber trendy West Village.
