A few hours ago, I received a message to say that the article and photos from the Bickleigh Castle shoot had just “gone live” on Bride Magazine Online. The next thing I knew Instagram and my Facebook page were pinging away with excited messages and links to the article. I am not sure I have ever been as ecstatic or so perplexed as I have been today thanks to my technological shortcomings, and I have needed a fair amount of help, but I think I now know what I am doing.
Hopefully, this is the link to the article – and it is a marvellous, illustrated read!
It means we are all now free to use the wonderful photography from the shoot – the models, the professionals who attended the shoot as well as the venue itself. I intend to open a new page on my website entitled photoshoots as I believe, since they tell a story, visitors may enjoy being able to make a coffee, take a break and just watch the slideshows depicting the crème de la crème of each one.
For the time being though I’d just love to post one shot – of the wild card crown on the lovely, smiley face of my friend Solo. It was she who put my name forward as the florist for this shoot. I’d also like to voice a massive thank you to the very talented Natasha who trusted Solo’s judgement and without whom the shoot would not have taken place, the models would not have looked so utterly gorgeous and the whole glorious day could not have featured in such a prestigious magazine.
