SAME SEX SHOOT 2018

DRESSES – Helena Couture Designs

I’ve worked on many shoots with Laura from Lola’s Wild Flowers, so when she asked me to join this one, there was no hesitation.  Laura said it is a same sex styled shoot and I knew which two dresses were going to complete the feel of the staging perfectly.

I chose the gowns SPRING and LIANA, as they both had a similar base colour/lace pattern and worked well together.  The styles suited ladies of differing figure shapes and showed how different, yet complimentary, these two dresses, with minimal traditional bridal structure would create a soft, relaxing look for both brides.  Nicola from Goddess Makeup Design, then did the hair and makeup to complete the look.

Originally the shoot was going to be in the woods, but that day started and ended with bucket loads of rain and that’s when Space 10 stepped in.  I’ve never been to Space 10 before and once I found my way there to drop the dresses off, I saw the beginning of something beautiful developing.  Due to the weather, we were unable to shoot outside in the forest, so the forest, or part thereof, was bought to Studio 10, where Katie from Arctic Fox Furniture Hire and Styling and Laura created this magical scene you see in the great images.

Milina from Milina Opsenica Photography and Jerome from Bird and Boy Photography have done a wonderful job with the images, making you feel like you were there.  The cake from Jacqui Riley - Divine Cakes looked so good, me being a sweet tooth, just wanted a bite, but as you can see the cake was intact and my waistline saved, this time.

I want to thank all the vendors involved in putting this shoot together and the models Cassidy and Stephanie.
