As has been widely reported over the last few months, the Covid-19 pandemic has hit many small business extremely hard, especially in the wedding industry. So, after having plenty of thinking time this summer, I decided I wanted to go ahead with a couple of projects I had in mind. This was to include, working with some of my favourite Cheshire Wedding Suppliers.
One, was to work with someone who would be willing to submerge a wedding dress, and its bride, into a river – more to come on that one next month. But my first idea was to head up to a place called Mow Cop in Cheshire, to shoot a bridal dress on the rocks and also to include the surrounding Cheshire views. Whilst it is always my aim to get great photographs that wedding suppliers are happy to use on their social media, it’s also VERY important to have fun!
Wedding Dress and Florist
Whenever I do these kind of bridal photoshoots, I always like to try and keep things really simple. I nearly always use no more than three suppliers. One wedding dress, one make up artist and one florist. For this shoot, Kerry, our brilliant model, did her own make up. The dress was supplied by her friend Tracy, who owns Cherish Bridal in Northwich. Tracy selected one of the gowns from the range she provides, the stunning Solange Gown, created by Romantica of Devon. The beautiful bouquet of Dahlias were created by the extremely talented Caroline at Flowers at the Dutch Barn.
Praying for blue skies.
When I was planning this bridal shoot, whilst it was mainly about the location, I also knew it was weather dependant. Wind and rain would have been a disaster, so we set aside 5 possible dates. Thankfully, day one was perfect. We had clear blue skies and a slight breeze, which allowed us to get some fab veil pictures too.
Beautiful Wedding bouquet.
I can’t let the blog pass without a special mention to Caroline from Flowers at the Dutch Barn and for her choice of bouquet. The Dahlias she chose were perfect. Made up of a mixture of deep and light purples, subtle pinks and single shock of orange, provided a great contrast.
