Devon, Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th November, 2009
It seems like a long way do go for a photoshoot, but, hey, how often do you get to go on a 'partly funded by the taxman' trip to the glorious county of Devon? So we packed up a few of the dresses in the new 'All That Jazz' collection into the back of the car, and headed off down the M74 to what hopefully will be warmer climes.
It may have been warmer but it certainly was not drier. Thank heavens the shoot is indoors today, because it isn't even the weather to be photographing kagools, never mind wedding dresses. The shoot is actually being held close to the village of Mamhead in a grand old country house, a perfect setting for the dresses. It had been organised by Vicky Rowe from 'Vintage Tea Sets', who specialises in vintage china hire and the styling of antique and vintage tableware dating from the 1820s up to the 1950s. Vicky had pulled together a experienced team for the shoot, including the ever-popular photographer Rosie Parsons (www.rosieparsons.com), and make-up by Sarah Brock (www.sarahbmakeup.co.uk).
Vicky had also organised a second shoot to be held at 'Combe House' in Gittisham, near Honiton the following day. A stunning Elizabethan Country House, Combe House is set in 3500 acres of one of Devon's finest country estates. This again turned out to be perfect for photographing the dresses.
