Jenny from My Little Wedding Shop has appeared a few times on this blog, as I have always jumped at the opportunity of working alongside her. As I have mentioned before, my own wedding dress was purchase from her beautiful shop, a quaint little boutique set upon cobble stones right beside my favourite corner of my home town, Bridgnorth in Shropshire. Shooting with Jenny always brings about those feelings I felt when first trying on my own dress, feeling like the little girl inside of me is living out her dream, feeling like five year old Beth would be proud.
The collection itself was quite different to previous collections that Jenny has designed, although still carrying the same notes of ethereal beauty and elements of Hollywood glamour. Each gown carries the name of a rose and is unique in its own right, but Jenny’s signature flair is easily identified. The shoot itself was scheduled to take place within nature to reflect the secret garden theme, but with a little creative thinking and some amazing floral design by the lovely and incredibly talented Rachel Adams, we were able to bring a hint of natural, floral beauty to the upper room of Tanner’s Wines. The room in itself was quite special, with its original architecture in place, dark wood floors and whitewashed brick walls, with it’s very own elements of nature as the ivy from outside had broken in through the air vent and left its mark on the otherwise plain wall. Shot on a mixture of digital and film, here are a few of my favourites from this editorial shoot.
