This shoot was my baby being the first that I had planned from scratch.  With help from Debbie of Glamour Bridal and Prom in Bolton we brought some fabulous North West suppliers together and I hope it shows!

We all worked together so well on the day.  Our inspiration was the 1940’s and our vision was a classy red carpet bride waiting at the station for her husband.  We wanted the images to ooze glamour and Debbie’s dresses certainly wowed.

We had the best in bridal accessories to chose from by Jane of HF Couture whose designs fit in with the theme so very well. A very big thank you also to Kay from Wrapor for designing and making these stunning bridal wraps especially for the shoot.

The steam train itself became the star of the show and after being told there wouldn’t be one we were pleasantly surprised to see it roll into the station!  Huge thanks to Andy Morris of The East Lancashire Railway in Bury for making the shoot even better and for letting us loose all day on the platform.

.

Lastly a big thank you to Stephen Redfern Photography  for coming along and taking these truly amazing images.  He was seriously outnumbered by all of us ladies but managed to hold his own!

    I love the vintage glamour style! The phalaenopsis orchid bouquet is lovely, but you can’t beat fresh flowers in my opinion.

    i Love this glamour style, and all the items wee just gorgeous in this shoot! One of my main irks though is the ‘brides’ in the shoot (and almost all other shoots!) because they look so freaking grumpy and miserable!!! Come on, its ment to be a wedding shoot, a happy event for most brides, so bring some joy into the shoots too please? im not saying every bride has to have a goofy smile on her lips, but a couple of coy looks, and happy faces intersperced between the suly ‘modelesque’ shots would be great! Ald it would make your items look more gorgeous, because if the brie in the picture is happy, I sure want whatever she has got ! =D Rant over, I <3 BUN!! =D
