Drink tea, eat cake.  Not the worst advice I’ve ever heard for a lazy Sunday. 

.

Ahead of an action packed festive season full of meetings, catch ups, venue visits, gatherings with family and friends and one very special Brides Up North Christmas Party, I’m taking a day today to recharge and reorganise before the mayhem ensues.  The season is all about spending time celebrating with loved ones, and after being a guest at a fabulously festive wedding celebration yesterday (Congratulations Tom & Emma!) another day with my nearest and dearest is just what’s needed.

.

I’ve some super lovely wedding inspiration in my inbox that I can’t wait to share with you in the coming weeks.  The countdown to Christmas sure is going to be pretty!  To get things started, I will leave you with this fabulous little styled shoot from a collective of North West suppliers, sent to me by Jules Fortune Photography.  Tea & Cake (and gown gazing!) for everyone!

Jules says: The shoot came about when Isla Jean Bridal approached me to photograph their new Halo collection.  The line has a very vintage feel and both myself and Vicky of Isla Jean love the styling.  I knew it would be great to get lots of local talent involved and the tearooms in my home town of Rawtenstall in Lancashire seemed the perfect place to start.

The Right Royal Tea Party Tearooms is owned and run by Melinda and I have always said that if the right shoot comes up I would love to shoot in her shop… and this seemed perfect. I suggested the tearooms to Vicky as i thought it would be an original, quirky location with some beautiful backdrops.

I contacted Natalie from Love Bouquets a local company based in Bury who are winning lots of National Awards at the moment for their unique vintage crystal bouquets. We knew the look needed great 50′s styling, so Jenny Gooding Make Up Artist joined the the team and she was excellent.

.

For me it was a great opportunity to work with four great local suppliers, photograph a great shoot, show off what we can do… and have some fun too!
