Well well well. Here. It. Is. Last week we all posted a sneaky behind the scenes feature and now, the eagerly anticipated results of the UK wedding bloggers photoshoot at Luella’s Boudoir are finally here on London Bride. And there you have little old me… In a super cute wedding dress, balloons a floating all around me and a seriously cool fishtail plait creation atop my head.
On the day, I arrived at Luella’s a little late (ahem) but was greeted with what I can only describe as organised chaos. Luella’s Boudoir was a hub of activity as it was being transformed into a set, with dresses, flowers, lights, make up, cameras and accessories everywhere. It was so exciting to see my fellow blogger babes (because they totally are) undergoing their styling, hair in curlers, and lashes being affixed.
Stylist Kate Barbour whisked me into the changing room with Rachel from Luella’s to try on dresses. It was only when I was stood there in my oh-so-attractive nude underwear being tightly zipped up, that I had an Oh, My moment. I’d never tried on a wedding dress you see, and so was a little overcome with the emotion and excitement! We all decided that the 50’s prom style suited me the best (weirdly, what I always had in mind) and it also reflected my cute and quirky style that is representative of me and the London Bride blog. Of course, Kate jazzed it up with some large colourful flowers for my hair and some uber cute little gloves, not to mention some red hot shoes. I heart this dress, so girly and fun to wear. For more info on everything that I’m wearing please see the bottom of this feature.
I was in my element as I then got primped and preened within an inch of my life. Although I don’t wear a lot of make up, I’m such a fan of strong looks so talented make up artist Alison Cameron gave me a dewy finish with orange lips and fluttering fake lashes and after declaring my undying love for fishtail plaits Elbie Van Eeden set to work on a top bun with a twist, and boy can that girl work a plait.
