North Wales Styled Shoot by Tony Fanning
A little while ago I brought together some of the best wedding suppliers in North Wales for a bit of a jolly, and to photograph two gorgeous ‘brides’ in the stunning location that is Caer Rhun Hall.
I chose the end of April to do this shoot as we had the best chance of half decent weather. As it turned out it was the coldest it has been for ages. I cannot remember seeing models shivering quite so much. I really do have to thank them both for not throwing a diva strop and walking off.
I carefully chose the two models, Iwanted two different looks for the dresses I had chosen from Wedding Belles in Llanfair PG on Anglesey. I photographed Leanne’s wedding last year in Bryn Eisteddfod so I new I wanted her to be the ‘girl next door’ look the tea-length wedding dress. Jen was new to me but as soon as I saw a photo of her I new she would be perfect for the full length fitted wedding dress. Both of them absolutely rocked it!
Obviously we couldn’t do a shoot like this without immaculate hair and makeup. I asked Julia Nicholls Creative hair and Kay Evans make up artist along as I have worked with both of them before and I know their work is always amazing.
What do you need to finish off a bridal look? Flowers! I asked Sarah from Scent with love to come up with something and she certainly did not disappoint. We had a variety of bouquets to work with with, and always they were flawless.
We needed some behind the scenes video as well so Geoff from Tudno TV did his thing for us. You can check out his short video HERE.
Last but not least we had a visit from Nelly the vintage VW camper. Kindly bought along by Nelly-Weds. Nelly looked fantastic in the sunlight in front of Caer Rhun hall.
Thanks so much to all the suppliers who came along and contributed to this wonderful day. I can’t thank them enough.
I must not forget the very trusting ladies who were kind enough to lend me three pairs of Irregular Choice shoes for the shoot. I know girls like shoes, but it wasn’t until this shoot that I realised just how much girls LOVE their shoes. I knew it was a bit of an obsession but I was nicely warned to look after them with my life
Here’s a roll of honour from the day.
