Three photographers and a sunny day

Earlier this month I had the opportunity of working with not one, not two, but three photographers on a bridal fashion shoot at Coniston Hotel.   As many of you are aware Nicky Chadwick ( and I have collaborated on a number of occasions to produce bridal fashion shoots.  This time we had the extremely talented Richard and Caroline Wynn-Davies ( with their take on bridal fashion photography.

For this shoot we had a very different rural setting of the splendid grounds of Coniston Hall and Hotel, which provided an amazing backdrop for my dresses.

Whilst you’ll see a couple of old favourites in a new setting, there are one or two designs, and in the case of the strapless fishtail, a redesign from dress originally manufactured over 10 years ago!

Don’t do it Richard, the shoot is going really well!

The extremely glamorous Eleanor and Nicky brought the dresses to life and were made even more gorgeous (if that is possible) by Zaira Cantara’s make-up artistry skills and Becci’s prowess with hair.

Simply stunning
First wear for this remodelled dress… needs a tiny taper and a tad more tulle

After we’d finished with the wedding dresses, Nicky and I had some fun with the cocktail/evening wear…

Do you think anyone will notice?
