I’ve been in Brighton for a few months now and I am loving everything about the city, especially being near the sea. Since moving I have been itching to set up a photoshoot in my new home town to share all the reasons why I fell in love with the place. The sea has brought me so much happiness and is a daily source of inspiration as the colours and views change every single day, it truly is a magical place and a perfect location for my first styled shoot.
My lovely friend Rosie Red was due a visit to see my new place so we decided it was the perfect opportunity to have some work related fun while she was here and together we created a shoot to showcase her growing Wanderlust Collection on Brighton Beach.
Rosie’s designs are very natural, with lots of flowing fabrics, that reflected the crashing waves of the sea and they are covered with beautiful fabric flowers which look as if they are growing out of the fabric. I wanted to keep the look for the shoot simple but with large, contrasting, statement flowers which worked so well against the dramatic backdrop.
I worked for the first time with the fabulous AJ Judge (also my new hairdresser) who created a long flowing braid for our model Amy, filled with heaps of volume & movement. The relaxed style of the hair complemented the oversized flower crown created by the wonderful Neil from Hunters Florist, along with a huge bouquet that was just breath taking. I was so lucky to work with both of them on this shoot, I really lucked out on finding them!
And our fabulous team was completed by the super talented Stevie-Ella Photography who was just a joy to work with. She understood my vision for the shoot and worked tirelessly to get the shots we were after.
I hope you like my first of many Brighton shoots – I am looking for more fabulous suppliers to work with in the future so please do get in touch to see what magic we can create.
Love & Sparkles
