The Luella’s Boudoir Wedding Fair & My Catwalk Debut!

Kat

March 24, 2011

I almost don't know where to start with writing this post as the whole day is kind of a blur...a fabulous adrenalin-fuelled blur...but a blur none the less. In actual fact, I know you really all just want to see the photos and video (eek!) of me walking the catwalk so shall we just cut to the chase and get straight to it? In actual fact, I know you really all just want to see the photos and video (eek!) of me walking the catwalk so shall we just cut the rambles and get straight onto them? HUGE thanks to Eye Imagine Photos, Eliza Claire Photography & Shell de Mar Photography (check the file names to see who shot which images) for taking these photos for me.

Behind the Scenes – Preparation for my Catwalk Debut at Luella’s Boudoir Wedding Fair

Kat

March 19, 2011

As many of you now know, on Monday I'll be walking down the catwalk at The Luella's Boudoir Wedding Fair. This week I was invited by Darren Fowler, Creative Director of the fabulous salon Clipso London to come meet him for a hair trial, and by the equally delightful Rachel Atwell, owner of Luella's Boudoir, for a dress fitting (well actually for 5 dress fittings...I found out I'm wearing 5 different outfits! talk about throwing me in at the deep end...) So on Wednesday, I got my little pink haired self on an early train to the city for a day of preening, pampering and for a little bit of freaking out.

A Sunday Kind of Love – The Luella’s Boudoir Wedding Fair, March 20th & 21st

March 6, 2011

The last wedding show I was invited to was awesome and after I posted my report, I had so many comments and messages from those of you that had wished you were able to make it. Well good news is that I've been invited to attend yet another fabulous wedding event - The Luella’s Boudoir Wedding Fair in March and I hope to see even more of you there! I was lucky enough to go to this event last year too...and it was awesome! I have a particular affinity with Luella's Boudoir as they provided the incredible backdrop and all the outfits & accessories for The Big fat Wedding Blogger's Photo Shoot that I organised last month. So, if you swooned over any of the dresses we wore on this shoot then this is the bridal show for you! Some of the exhibitors that will be there include:

The Big Fat Wedding Blogger’s Photo Shoot – The Final Results & Video!

Kat

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!

Happy Valentine’s Day! The Big Fat Wedding Blogger’s Photo Shoot – Behind the Scenes Sneak Peek

Kat

February 14, 2011

So last Tuesday I headed up to Luella's Boudoir in Wimbledon to meet the all time UK wedding blogging greats. I'd had this little idea to organise a photo shoot with all my favourite wedding bloggers and some amazing suppliers (of course!) late last year and I was so excited to see it all pulled off. A lot of organisation went into this day and I'm so thrilled with how it all turned out. One word - EPIC!

An Exclusive Lisa Redman Collection at Luella’s Boudoir

Kat

August 25, 2010

When photographer Nick Tucker sent me just one shot from this amazing shoot, I demanded straight away to see the rest. I had a sneaking suspicion that they would be awesome...and when it comes to things like this it would appear that I'm always right! The shoot was set up by Nick and Luella's Boudoir (fabulous vintage wedding boutique in Wimbledon, London) to showcase the dresses of one of the shop's favourite and most unique designers,Lisa Redman. I actually fell in love with a Lisa Redman dress myself when I saw some of her creations on the catwalk at Luella's Boudoir bridal event earlier this year (remember this gorgeous sparkly dress?) so I literally jumped at the chance to share these with you.

The Julia Boggio Studios Grand Opening

Kat

May 7, 2010

Last Thursday I was lucky enough to be invited to the fancy pants grand opening of the Julia Boggio Studios in Wimbledon, London. Not only was it the very studio that Julia and I did my vintage boudoir shoot but I was able to meet a load of new people from the UK wedding industry as well as catch up with some old friends. I headed up to London with the lovely Lisa of Magpie Vintage. Before the party we paid a visit to our friends at Luella's Boudoir in Wimbledon who kitted us out with sparkles and shoes (Lisa nabbed some gorgeous Emmy shoes and I borrowed a beeeautiful Magpie Vintage headband - and yes I wanted to keep it!) We then all piled back in Lisa's car and made our way to Merton Abbey Mills where Julia's studio is located.
