I'm sooo excited to share with you a fabulous bridal shoot I worked on last week. I fancied getting creative so organised a shoot in South Wales with my sister acting as my gorgeous model.  I organised/styled the shoot, did hair and makeup plus acted as photographer...nothing like doing it all yourself! ha ha.  It was very much a budget/DIY project and all props were sourced quickly and off the high street - the flowers were from Tesco! I've been wanting to do a shoot in a dilapidated building for a while, I love the contrast with the cutesy dress and streamers.  Inspired by the tutu style wedding dress, I went for a ballerina/doll look with the makeup and hair.  The outfit was finished off with gold glittery heels (a must) and a vintage diamante necklace I had given to me as a child by my nan.  My sister played the perfect model (can you believe she's never done anything like this before!) and put up with me bossing her around telling her where to position her arms, head, legs...... :)

I love seeing all my ideas come together so relished this little project and I'm so pleased with the finished results especially given I'm an amateur photographer.  I hope you like the shoot, I'd love to know which images are your favourite, drop me a comment below! :)
