  1. Pre-Raphaelite Perfection

    Posted on


    We were recently asked by photographers Jenny & Keith McAvoy to be involved in a shoot in the beautiful grounds at Styal Lodge.   Jenny & Keith wanted to recreate the paintings of the Pre-Raphaelite movement.  So, armed with their brief we took inspiration from the paintings of artists such as Arthur Hughes and John William Waterhouse who painted 'Hamlet's' innocent love interest 'Ophelia'. 



    Their model for the day, Bethany,  was a prefect choice with her long, softly waved hair.  We dressed Bethany in an 'Ophelia' inspired white Chiffon dress with silver trim and the fantastic Verdure Floral Design created some romantic bouquets which included peonies, alliums and were finished with lots of ivy.  They also created an ivy head dress to complete the look.


    The grounds at Styal Lodge were a stunning back drop with long grasses, pretty buttercups and beautiful mature trees.  Jenny & Keith McAvoy brilliantly captured the essence of the theme.  Take a look at just a few of their images....... 






  2. At The Hilton with Mr.Hanley!

    Posted on

    Back in March we were extremely proud to be asked to provide dresses for a 'Cherish The Dress' Masterclass with top UK photographers Chris Hanley and Damien Lovegrove.  Chris and Damien are fabulous photographers who also run masterclass workshops for their students.

    The shoot took place at The Hilton Hotel, Deansgate, Manchester and the gorgeous models were Jenny Brook and Sarah Stone.  Sarah works as a sports TV presenter and radio Co-host but, took time out to model for the day!  We also had the very lovely Chris Moore on board who modelled as the 'groom'.

    The Hair and Makeup Artist was Jeni Morris.  We took along dresses from our début 'Ready to Wear' collection together with a 'Couture' blush cocktail dress.

    We had a fantastic day and it was a privilege to be involved.  So here are just a few of the beautiful images from the day.............. 






     These beautiful images were taken by Brett Symes ( ) who attended the class and who very kindly supplied us with some of his work.

    So special thanks to Chris Hanley, Damien lovegrove and one of their rising stars.... Brett Symes.
