Celebrate & Sparkle!: A Festive Bridal Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Happy New Year’s Eve! How are you celebrating tonight? Is it a night on the town, a house party with your besties or a night in with a bottle of Prosecco and turning your bathtub into a makeshift ball pit? If the latter sounds like a damn good time then you’re going to love this shoot (ha!)

If you’re a reader of Rock n Roll Bride magazine you will have already seen a few of these shots, as this editorial was featured inside issue 23, however I thought today, the national day of parties, would be the perfect time to share some of the previously unpublished shots with you.

My vision for this shoot was to do something fun and festive but not super obviously Christmasssy. There was to be no tinsel or mistletoe, instead to take the party vibes of the season and put it into a bridal editorial. My idea was that our model, the beautiful Monique, was going through the stages of a night out – from getting ready to having a pre-party tipple, dancing the night away and then collapsing back into bed at the end of it all (if only we all could look so glam after a big night out hey!?)

It was a lot of fun to shoot (yes we drank the Prosecco afterwards!) and I hope you’ll enjoy seeing the results!
