From time to time I collaborate with other wedding professionals on styled wedding photoshoots. This one took place in November 2016 in leafy Surrey with the theme ‘Frost on the Leaves’.  We wanted to explore the underrated beauty of the late English Autumn, a magical time of coloured leaves and silver frost. You can see photos of the making process and behind the scenes pictures from the shoot in my blog entries about this shoot.

I designed three dresses for this shoot, a white and silver dress layered that could be worn in three different ways. Lining only (shown here), both layers, or for the daring, the lace layer alone! I also created a dip-dye dress that soaks up the colours of autumn in the hem and a flower-girl dress to compliment them both, in rose-gold silk lame and georgette.

Model Keely Simeoni wears ‘Helada’ a silk dupion and tulle dress dip-dyed with the colours of autumn as if the season is creeping up her skirt. Creating this dress, took 7 hours on the colours alone, see more detail of how this was done in my blog entry on the shoot.

The Leaf Pendant is an ideal choice an Autumn wedding. The green stone is a piece of Moldavite. The rippled texture that gives the leafy appearance is entirely natural. It’s a type of tectonic glass, created in an explosion of energy over 14 million years ago, when an asteroid collided into Earth. This notion of ‘heaven-and-earth’ makes it a perfect symbol for the magic that marriage inspires.
