Here’s to our models…

The crazy girls who say yes to our silly ideas, who suffer inhuman poses ‘in the name of art’ and endure bitter weather conditions to help us get the perfect shot. Our gorgeous girls that hold their breath, squeeze their muscles and clench their buttocks to maintain a pose long enough for the conditions to be right. Who balance candles in the palms of their hands while hyperaware that hot wax could drip onto the dress and lie on stone cold floors or in frozen lakes because that’s what the brief requires. Here’s to our girls, who allow us to primp and preen them to within an inch of their lives; let us backcomb their hair into a birds nest and apply makeup they could never imagine themselves wearing; who let us dress them in all manner of outfits without a hint of bemusement and ask them to walk in shoes we wouldn’t attempt to wear ourselves. You girls rock! We are only too aware of what we ask of you; it’s a hard job and a long day and you girls are amazing… Thank you! IMAGE CREDITS… please see specific image for photographer details.

Great Northern Wedding Show at Bolton Arena

A few weeks have passed now since we were at the Great Northern Wedding Show with Little White Books in April… in fact, how on earth is it the Middle of June!?! It was a manic run up to the event; the start of the wedding season combined with an ambitious plan to create 6 new dresses for our collection. Closely followed by the mammoth wedding month of May and then a burgeoning calendar of new consultations. It’s definitely kept us out of trouble (and off the internet!) We were blown away by the number of people that came to the show specifically to see us and loved every minute of our alternative catwalk… here is a very quick look at the catwalk and a closer look (including scene and music details) can be found here. Thank you to DJ Archer photography  for taking the time to capture these images and share them with us

Woodland Wedding featured on Boho Weddings

Recently we had the pleasure of collaborating on a shoot with WeddingNet; a group of wedding suppliers in and around Bolton who get together to inspire and learn from each other. We’ve had the pleasure of working with several members of the groups on many occasions and LOVED how our Woodland inspired shoot turned out. It was also featured on Boho Weddings… our favourite source of inspiration for those of you wanting a natural and outdoorsy wedding Woodland Wedding Inspiration We LOVE everything woodland. We love nature. I’m sure you can see from our designs that we find a lot of inspiration in our surroundings and see the magic in the forests… the landscapes of fairy tales. So we were REALLY excited to work on this Woodland Wedding theme. With the changing seasons we wanted to show how, as a team, WeddingNet works with our surroundings to inspire our brides. Kilhey Court is surrounded by the most gorgeous natural woodland so we let this guide our styling, choosing to split the shoot into two scenes; an almost wild whimsical woodland scene created in the atmospheric woodland of Kilhey Court and a more sophisticated interpretation of woodland weddings brought in to Continue Reading →
