Afternoon Peeps.

The sun is finally shining – hoorah! I think it’s safe to say that anyone who lives in the south of the UK is royally effed off with the amount of rain we’ve had in the last few months. It’s been awful and although it’s not here to stay, this little bit of sunshine has been a welcomed respite from what has been a miserable start to the year. Lets just hope Mr Sun comes back soon……..and next time stays for a while.

So as I’m celebrating all that is wonderful about the winter sun today, I thought I would share this gorgeous winter shoot with you.

Put together by Vicki White of Photography By Vicki, the shoot mixes autumnal colours with the vibrancy of the winter sun and the result is just stunning.

Vicky tells us all about the shoot….

After a couple of months of serious planning, my dream bridal shoot became a reality. We had the gorgeous wedding venue Bartholomew Barns in West Sussex as our background and we couldn’t have wished for a better location with lots of woodland to explore and a variety of beautiful settings to work with. On the day we also had a massive variety of weather! It was pretty cold but we had sunshine and snow all on the same day. I worked with a small group of amazing ladies who all work within the wedding industry and came up with this amazing bridal inspired photoshoot. We were so lucky to feature Naomi Neoh‘s “Love Letter” Designer Wedding Dresses and oh my gosh they were simply stunning, lots of lace and beaded details – they were just perfect.

In 2012 I did a wedding at Upwaltham Barns and a lady called Kerry Pullen from Rose Cottage Flowers did the flowers for their big day. They were absolutely stunning so as soon I started organising this shoot I contacted her to see whether she would be interested in working with me again. Well she went above and beyond and made the most beautiful collection of wedding bouquets and floral head bands. I couldn’t have ask more from her and they really did make the shoot what it was!

The lovely Claire Wallace and Katherine Priest joined us for hair and make up and they both absolutely worked their magic to produce not 1 but 5 different looks. Lucia, our lovely model was just perfect, she had never modelled before and this is exactly what I wanted. I want to reassure brides-to-be that being in front of my camera is a great experience to enjoy and something that you can relax into (quite quickly I promise!) and Lucia did exactly that! We had such an amazing day together and I really can’t thank everyone involved enough for making this shoot possible!!!

For Lucia’s make-up, Katherine used Mac Cosmetics and it was a twist on natural bridal make up, using bolder techniques and colours. This was to show brides that “natural” isn’t always the way to go with your wedding make up.
