Did I ever show you the pictures from my most recent Eclectic Eccentricity shoot?? I don’t think I did! Well, it was months ago and freezing, as you can tell from photographer Charlotte Rutherford’s fetching bobble hat. 😀 I was in a lovely vintage wedding dress from ReTreat Vintage (and I don’t mean vintage style– I was told the dress has it’s last outing in 1957!) which wasn’t so great for keeping out the cold. I’m sure I got an outtake wearing the bobble hat but can’t find it… :S
As someone who has no plans to get married, I find doing bridal shoots quite fun as I won’t be doing “the real thing”. (Models who do plan to get married- is it strange wearing wedding dresses?? I’d love to know!) I’ve worn all sorts, from bright red ones to big meringues to vintage ones and while I actually like modelling the big dresses as there’s plenty of fluff to throw around and I can make ballerina arm poses, there was something quite special (I felt) about wearing something that had been such a big part of someone’s life half a century ago.
I’m planning on investing in a wedding dress of my own for photoshoots as there are so many places you can shoot a wedding dress. I’d love to do a nude shoot in the grounds of a palace but often it isn’t possible. Wearing a wedding dress I think still shows off the grandeur of places like Hampton Court but in a very different way to something like latex.
Photographers- get in touch if you’d like to be updated on my “Quest for a Dress”! 😉
Anyway… the shoot! Check out the EE office- it’s full of pictures of me (and very enticing new jewellery. I always like looking around- I feel like a magpie; I can’t decide which sparkly thing to look at first!)
And here are some of the final pictures! I really liked the headpiece 🙂
Huge contrast to the images I know I’m getting in the next few weeks… 😉
