INDUSTRIAL CHARM

A wedding shoot at Haarlem Mill…

Late last year I took part in a collaborative wedding photoshoot at Haarlem Mill Wedding Venue, Wirksworth, with other Derbyshire based businesses, including Ivory White Bridal shop in Duffield. 

Working onsite requires a different set of techniques to working in salon, especially when working alongside other artists. There is often limited time and space to complete the look, and you must be prepared with all products and equipment to hand, and often work on the hair at the same time as others are working on the models make-up or costume. It is incredibly important to be flexible at all times to ensure that everyone works as a team to create the best overall look.

It was great to be able to collaborate with Sophie at Ivory White, Duffield, and Make-up artist Ruby Jones on the New Romantic inspired Winter look. We took our inspiration from the offwhite and grey wedding dress chosen by Sophie, and worked as a team to create a look that both complimented and enhanced the dress. I used soft braids and twists that mirrored the lace and embroidery on the dress and incorporated 3 small pearl hair combs to add a touch of wedding glamour.   

I thoroughly enjoyed working on this shoot, and hope to be able to do more session styling and collaborative work in the future.

THE KEDLESTON COUNTRY HOUSE

In February we were asked to take part in a styled shoot and open evening at The Kedleston Country House which had a fantastic fiesta theme. We love looking for new hair ideas and this styled shoot was the ideal way to explore unique bridal looks. Lorna, our Senior Stylist at The Old Hall was assisted by Zea (Stylist at Duffield) on the shoot.

Robyn Carter, Weddings coordinator, said of the day…

“Here at The Kedleston we like to have a little fun with our open evenings and think it’s always a great opportunity to get fab suppliers involved in creating something different and unique. As much as we love the simplicity of our venue we wanted to show what you can do with a little colour and turmeric! So naturally, we gathered the best of the best together and thought up something totally different to what we’ve seen and done ourselves on other styled shoots.”
