Styled Shoot: A Black & White Wedding Dress Amongst the Bluebells

.

As part of Nicki Hill's Couture Collection of beautiful wedding dresses, she likes to include something a little different (it's not just photographers who can be creative). Nicki loves checkered dresses and asked me to photograph this black and white gown for her. Due to the quirky style of the dress, the location needed to be considered carefully and I chose a wooded area filled with bluebells which gave the shoot a slight Alice in Wonderland feel to it. This suited the dress perfectly. I also chose Crystal as the model for her red hair which created a striking contrast against the dress.

For this shoot I enlisted the help of Claire Wallace Hairdressing who I had worked with on a previous shoot. Claire styled model Crystal's hair and make-up and the transformation was incredible. We opted for 50's style hair and makeup which created a strong look to match the bold style of the dress.
