So today my ‘All Bo Boutique’ styled shoot hits the virtual pages of Style Me Pretty, and I could not be more thrilled.
This shoot has been living in my head for a very long time, I mean years… and I finally brought it to life in April, with the help and hard work of the insanely talented fine art photographer, Ashlee Taylor or Taylor Barnes Photography.
The location was the Pergula in London’s Hampstead Heath… a place that holds many dear, love and lustful memories for me. I have spent significant and special moments here in my own life, and I always knew that one day I had to shoot something in this incredibly beautiful haven in the city. The manifestations of my love struck heart and the blood, sweat and tears ingrained on my withered hands were looking back at me, it was tangible now; one huge blush tulle wedding dress, flowers everywhere, and a hard working team of Bo Dolls. It was a happy and insanely special moment. I get stingy eyes just thinking about it!
The premise behind the shoot was a passionate love affair where the scenes were sensual, romantic and overindulgent in every sense, right down to the cakes…. there was a lot of cake!!
I styled the entire shoot, every minute detail. The flowers were obviously signature Bo Boutique – HUGE!! The dress – my first attempt, spawned from being unable to find the dress that was in my minds eye….”Ok, fine, then I’ll make it!” was my declaration, two weeks prior to the shoot!! (I do love a challenge!!) The accessories were hand picked from the stunning Stephanie Allin Couture collection, and I even put my hand to some HMU! Ashlee shot the entire shoot on film, and our models were the stunning real life couple, Charlotte and Justin who exceeded my wildest expectations in gorgeousness.
All in all this shoot makes me extremely happy and grateful for the wonderful team that worked with me to bring it to life…. and now all I want to do is run around barefoot, in tulle….every. god. damn. day!
