Hello Ladies! Sorry we have been pretty quiet, been a bit busy in the shop with new collections being released and trying to work out what direction we are thinking of heading with ordering.
We thought we would let you know what we have been up to and what we have coming up!!
8th September 2015 – Savoy Cinema Shoot
If you follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram you may have seen we were a bit busy on Tuesday 8th September posting pictures from a photoshoot with Savoy Cinema to promote them becoming a wedding venue. We worked with an amazing team to get some great photos.
We had the amazing Austen Blakemore on photography… he just doesn’t stop, we were all exhausted just watching him jump about to get the perfect shot! Obviously a cinema hasn’t got a lot of natural light so getting pictures that showed off the details for the dress, hair, make up and venue was proving slightly difficult… but that meant we got to have a play with the light sabre!!
Hair was by Kay Rhodes from Kay’s Bridal Hair. She did an amazing job, The style she created for the first shoot was just stunning, a hair net has never looked so sexy!! This was the second time we have worked with Kay and Austen as we met them on the shoot we did for The Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club.
Make Up was by Charlotte Moore MUA. We met Charlotte on the off chance when Jaime decided she wanted to go into Charlottes work to try on a false fringe! Random we know, but we got a laugh out of her trying it, and we got to meet Charlotte and see her amazing work come to life on our lovely model!
Courtney has been modelling with us for a few years now, mainly at shoots for Swancar Farm. She used to help out in the shop on Saturdays but then stopped so she could concentrate on her studies. She is an official clever clogs and sadly leaves us to go off to University at the end of the month, we are going to miss her!!!
Flower and the wedding car were supplied by Scrumpys. The car was gorgeous, a lot of people eyeing it up as they drove down Derby Road!
All in all the day was amazing, we got some great shots for everyones portfolios, as well as some shots of us all behind the scenes (Check out Austen’s Twitter account… if he sent taking photos he’s filming!)
13th September 2015 – Flowers on Main Street Shoot
On sunday the 13th September we have got a couple of dresses headed to a photoshoot for the flower shop Flowers On Main Street. They are going for a vintage look with bicycles so we have got 2 tea length dresses to fit in with their theme.
14th September 2015 – Harrogate Bridal Show
The Harrogate Bridal Show is a trade show where the majority of bridal designers all gather in the conference centre with their new collections and make us pick what we want to order in for next year! Its like 5 football pitches worth or bridal gowns, jewellery, shoes, bridesmaids, fur shrugs, veils… anything you can think of to do with weddings really.
Its impossible to make a decision! We are trying to be good this year and cut down on what we buy, we have done masses of speed sheets to work out what dresses are becoming most popular so we don’t go buying on a whim! Fingers crossed!
16th September 2015 – Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club Catwalk
We are back at The Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club for an open evening. There is going to be a catwalk show with wedding dresses and mother of the bride outfits. They are hoping that the weather stays nice so they can have a fireworks display as well. If your still searching for a venue, you should check it out!
20th September 2015 – Walled Garden At Beeston Fields
This is the first wedding event we have taken part in at The Walled Garden this year, we did them all last year, but sadly this year they have fallen on days when we haven’t been available. They have had some work done since we last saw it so it will be fun to see how it has changed. Again, if you haven’t chosen a venue yet, you need to have a look around!
23rd September 2015 – Swancar Farm Open Evening
As you may have guessed from our Facebook account and the amount of photo albums we have from Swancar, We love the place! So we are excited to be taking part in their next open evening! Its a lovely relaxed setting, accommodation on site, food is amazing… all in all, a fantastic venue. Visit their website to get your name down to view this amazing venue!
11th October 2015 – Save The Date Wedding Event With A Difference
We took part in spring Save The Date Event at the Nottingham Conference Centre. It was a great event, suppliers from all over Nottinghamshire descend onto the Trent Campus to show you what they have to offer.
In March we took part in the catwalk show but have decided we will only have a stall this time around.
For this event you will need tickets, just visit the Save The Date website for price options, VIP tickets go pretty quick, so get in there now!!
We will get photos from each event up when we get some. The Savoy photoshoot pictures may be a few weeks as Austen has a lot of weddings coming up, but make sure you check them out when we get them up! xx
