Around Christmas time I had this crazy idea to do an art deco photoshoot with a contemporary twist (as you do!) Put it down to having a few sherry’s and watching the jaw droopingly beautiful BBC’s adaptation of ‘And Then There Were None’ by my favourite crime/thriller writer Agatha Christie. I love the whole feel of the 1920’s and 30’s especially when it is translated into a modern concept with warm golds, vibrant cocktails and of course glitzy gowns and sparkling accessories.
I had my brain wave, now I just needed a team of wedding suppliers to piece my madness together! I called on my good friends in the industry Lemontree Photography / Jo Hicks Flowers / Jill The Cake Maker / Brides of Winchester / Sirius Cinematography and model Chloe Lancaster – who I knew would be perfect for the shoot.
Around the same time of putting the team together I found our shoot location, and what a find it was! Nestled along Weymouth’s coast, hidden from the road and pedestrians was Portland House. Owned and maintained by The National Trust this house was everything. Beautiful surroundings, simple architecture (typical 1930’s build) and equipped with original art deco pieces. And it came with a colourful history to boot!
So team together & location found it was now show time! We had an amazing & productive day, shooting from 9 – 5pm with very little break we got the most stunning images from all our hard work. Now it’s just on to getting published, fingers crossed! x
