At the beginning of the year I met a wonderful family here in Carterton. The woman was also originally from Germany and works as a wedding planner; Michelle Marsden Weddings.
I told Michelle about my plans, that I would like to start a second hand bridal dresses online shop and she was absolutely excited and gave me a lot of tips how I can start and manage everything. She also told me, that she organized a great styled shoot with other local wedding suppliers and if I want I can provide the bridal dress.
I was so thankful for this big opportunity , to be involved in this great project. To be a part of a styled shoot before I opened my online shop was perfect. So I had the motivation and the pressure I needed to go on and finish my homepage and to get ready for my brides.
After a meeting with the styled shoot team I was just excited and couldn't await the day. Michelle had the theme Peaky Blinders in her mind and we discussed all the details, like cake design, decorations, flowers and the dresses for all models.
All the time until the shooting we stayed in touch and we always brainstormed what we wanted to do and what else we needed. For me, it was a really easy part, I just had to provide a suitable bridal dress. From the first moment I had on bridal dress in my mind. I decided to choose a beautiful light bridal dress from Monsoon. Crafted from delicate lace and a pearl and diamond-embellished band the bridal dress was perfect for the vintage wedding theme.
Last point on our list was to find some models. This was really easy, thanks to all social medias.
And then the great day was there. In the early morning, Michelle and I, were on our way to Chipping Norton. Heythrop Park is an incredible estate, just beautiful. Our set up room was perfect for our vintage theme. It took about 2 hours until everything was ready: decoration, cake hair & make up and all models dressed up.
After a few hours we had a lot of beautiful pictures across different spaces in the venue. And the result is just amazing. Here you can have a look at the result: Styled Shoot.
At least not only we love the pictures but also a local wedding magazine. Our Peaky Blinders styled shoot got published at the Your Glos&Wilts Wedding Magazine and we also did it on the cover. This is really amazing and I´m soooo proud what we created. So please have a look at the Magazine.
The whole day was a great experience for me and it was a pleasure to work together with all these talented persons.
