And here we go again – the last seasonal collection of the 2013 done! The team this time ventured to a lovely Coombe Abbey near Coventry for the shoot – and for the first time the weather didn’t really want to play with us – though we did managed to snap a few shots outside between the showers! still – the interiors were absolutely amazing – one of the reason I had Coombe Abbe bookmarked as a potential location for the shoot – the place is utterly mesmerizing. I think I will have a separate post just to talk about them! anyway, it worked brilliantly with the theme of the shoot – Autumn of course, but also Victorian, Steampunk, and Pre-Raphaelite inspired gowns for alternative brides.
This time Paul did a very speedy job on the photos – and so we decided to get his images to go first and pave the way for the subsequent post describing the designs, costing, materials, etc, alongside with the day o the shoot.
For now though – let the images speak their tale of our Autumnal brides…. enjoy!
