So here they are – FINALLY! I’ve been SOOOOO excited about sharing this shoot with you!
It all started out with a little message from Andrea Ellison Photography with regards to a wedding she’s recently done featuring a lovely tattooed bride (To be coming up on the blog soon!) as to if I could use her images.. More messages were exchanged and I was asked if I ever wanted to do a shoot for the Marry Me Ink site – She’s be up for doing so.
As you know – I was SO up for that! Details were exchanged and I was informed that we’d also be joined by Claire Penn Photography, Maria Bentley of Studio 1208 AND Victoria Thomas Make Up (The most fantastic/crazy/pink haired lady you ever did see!)
HA! Isn’t Victoria just fantastical?! After setting a date of when – it was a case of what themes, where the hell to get a dress and where to do all the shots. All being Northern lasses, Manchester was our central point and their Northern Quarter is TOO funky not to shoot in! Being a HUGE Afflecks Palace advocate, where better for me to parade around in a dress, no?!!
I didn’t need to look far for a dress – Kate Youdale of The Party Frock kindly offered to make me a dress.. Yes, that’s right – MAKE!! LOTS of tulle, in many colours – Ivory, royal blue & emerald green!
The epic spotty shoes are my own – Irregular Choice of course! As for hair accessories.. Anissa Lee offered to give her helping hand in providing some epic hair pieces, including a massive bow and a cute top hat! The sugar skull fascinator was supplied the wonderful Diablo Jo’s Rockabilly Accessories (which I may add – they have been kind enough to let me keep!). The gorgeous skully nesting doll necklace & ring were provided by the very talented Dolly Cool.
I seriously cannot thank everyone enough for all of their time and effort into making these items and letting us use them for the shoot.
Do leave Andrea, Claire & Maria big love for their images they provided me with and for Victoria, Kate, Anissa, Diablo Jo’s, Afflecks Palace and Dolly Cool for being so generous with their time and supplies! – BIG LOVE! – Rach.XX
