I can't believe it's December already!
It's that time of the year when I start to look back over my work, evaluate and share some of my favourites.
At the beginning of this year after my travels in Goa, India, I headed back home to a freezing cold February just before The Beast from the East hit the UK. Catching up with family and awaiting the arrival of my niece, I was also excited and keen to get straight back to work and be part of a collaborative styled shoot at stunning new Devon wedding venue, Paschoe House. With an amazing team of ladies this was an opportunity to get creative and hone our skills.
Paschoe House, a grade II listed manor house, is nestled amongst the rolling hills in the Heart of Devon. A mix of a country hunting lodge with a modern twist, there are spectacular fireplaces, flamboyant wallpapers and a stunning staircase. It’s stylish, quirky and has a wonderfully cosy yet luxurious feel.
As a team we set upon creating clean, classy, nature inspired images to echo the style of Paschoe’s interior. Our vision was styled by Shelley Hutcheon and Nic Courtney precision styling. Shelley also put together elegant flowers and placed succulents and cones adding a botanical theme. Nic’s make up for our stunning model Abigail was natural and flawless and hair stylist Giselle displayed her skills getting Abi’s hair perfectly in place. Completing our vision we where supplied with stunning dresses from bridal boutique Totnes’s .
Model Abigail shone in the houses moody light creating some of my favourite dramatic shots of the day. She even controlled chattering teeth braving it outside as the first few flakes of snow started to fall.
Beautiful work at a stunning venue pulled off by a dream team of suppliers. Many thanks to our talented team (links below).xx
