It's always a pleasure to work with Essex based Hairstylist Tara Johnston, when she approached me and proposed a photoshoot to create images for her on-line wedding accessory and jewellery business, Home of Hearts Boutique, I had to say yes!
Home of Hearts Boutique offers a range of accessories to compliment any bride, their collections are as unique as each bride on her wedding day!
Our photoshoot was another great collaboration of talent and an opportunity to try new ideas. Tara and I were both influenced by a number of fashion images we had seen and were keen to create a backdrop which moved away from stereotypical wedding photography. We swapped the pretty flowery background to a metallic silver which I painted on a sheet of mdf board, I better mention my daughter assisted or I will be in trouble!
I was also interested to know if I would have room to shoot this at home as opposed to hiring a studio for the day. Although we were a little tight on space we managed not to fall over each others feet, both Tara and I were delighted with the end results. Makeup was courtesy of Michelle Lacey of Bumblebee Bridal, who did an amazing job on our two beautiful models Krisztina and Clare. It goes without saying, Tara was responsible for the hair styling, she's no stranger to creating beautiful hair. Whether it's a timeless classic, vintage inspired, or a Boho style, Tara is passionate and patient so you can be confident in her 20 years experience in the hairdressing industry.
We were also interested in creating a behind the scenes video of the shoot, this was made possible by Pete at PDA Creative. Make sure you take a look at the end of the blog and be sure to give it a like on YouTube!
Finally, a big thank you to Bridal Reloved, Maldon who supplied Clare's amazing designer dress.
Without further ado, ladies and gentlemen please be upstanding for the bride(s)!
