behind the scenes.

Last week I went back to the beautiful location house in Henley to work on the Homesense Autumn / Winter collection with the fabulous Abigail Edwards. It was my first Christmas shoot of the year and by the end of the week I was covered in glitter and had eaten my body weight in chocolate. So all in all... a good week!

This was one of my favorite shots - I just wanted to sit down and start typing.
All hands on deck for the chocolate shot!

It all got a bit too much for some.

sunday car boot.

I did a car boot sale last Sunday in the pouring rain but my day was brightened up by this lovely gentleman who was my favorite customer all day! He was full of jokes - I wish I could remember them all - I think some people have the memory for jokes and I am just not one of them.

tuesday treasures.

The online shop Rowen & Wren is full of beautiful products to suit any home. On my wish list this week are these ceramic apples and pears in white or lichen grey - they would look perfect on my dressing table at home!

secret garden wedding shoot.. part one.

Here are some of the final images from the secret garden wedding shoot I styled a couple of months ago. This shoot was a secret garden inspired vintage wedding with rustic keys hung from strips of ribbon and flowers displayed in vintage bottles around the gazebo. Cake by Sugar created a beautiful miniature wedding cake and pastel coloured heart biscuits which sat perfectly on the centre table. I sourced the collection of vintage mirrors from DoDo vintage a favorite shop of mine based in Hove as well as a selection of decorative frames that were hung from trees to create an eye catching display. Part 2 of the shoot to come soon. Would love to hear your comments and thoughts on these images. x
