Winter Green Photoshoot

‘We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,’
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.”

I agreed to loan a couple of my wedding dresses to photographer Shelley Richmond for a wintery photoshoot she was planning in December, after she shared her beautiful Pinterest board full of Narnia-esque inspiration. I had high expectations based on the images she was inspired by, and the shots she has produced totally exceeded them. I think these pictures are soooooo good – all kinds of dreamy ethereal loveliness.

Model Katie looks effortlessly stunning in my Sweet William cowl necked dress – which we styled with an 1930s vintage collar of mine – and beautifully demure in my 1950s long sleeved lace wedding dress.

This shoot was featured on the wonderful blog Love My Dress, where founder Annabel says I am “one of her favourite independent dress designers” – high praise indeed!

Credits for the fantastic Sheffield suppliers involved are at the end of the post. Amazing work everyone!
