‘Passion for modern weddings with fashion and empowerment taking centre-stage, is what both Bon Bride creator, Pippa Cooke and I live for.’

I came across my first Bon Bride dress last summer in London when one of my brides wore one of Pippa’s dresses.  It caught my eye, firstly the fabric as I hung it up and then the effortless style and cut of the dress, it epitomised modern London bridal fashion.  I reached out to Pippa and we hit it off straight away and begun planning an editorial shoot which came to fruition Autumn last year.  We shot within the opulent grounds of Somerley House,  with an intention to offer brides a new direction, allowing current fashion to take its rightful place in the modern wedding.

I had the honour of working with an incredible team of creative women to capture Bon Bride’s gorgeous collection of dresses.  Pippa and I had a very clear vision and I can’t wait to share the results.  As we worked together we pushed each other in a really positive way;  the  process was so refreshing with creative freedom and complete trust from each other.  In addition to the brief I shot some of my beloved Polaroids on the day as I couldn’t resist, I love them and will share the shoot really soon.

A collection of polaroids.

I was asked to shoot the new collection for Nahina Lingerie back in Autumn, I shot both digital and film, however these images say it all to me. Texture, tone, imperfection, mood and atmosphere and oh so feminine.

“Will you come and shoot in a flower meadow with me…” 

I shot this campaign for ’the most curious wedding fair’.  Becky who is the powerhouse behind the brand wanted the opportunity to push and play with some ideas and gave me free reign to shoot in what ever format I wanted to.  Thanks so much Becky and everyone else that made it happen and I am super proud for them to be used as promotional images for the bridalNEXt part of the show.  It was an inspiring and creative team that worked hard amongst the flowers on that beautiful day.  This is shot on a variety of formats; 35mm film, polaroid, 120 and digital.
