“Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London…” Ralph McTell’s poignant lyrics really resonated as I was selecting the images for this blog post- in a different context I must add. As you get further on in the post, you’ll see me hand in hand with three friends, (you’ll recognise them), in a beautiful London street, in photographs taken the evening before we went to the Chelsea Flower Show, which you can read about in this blog post.
Behind the camera for these stunning shots was Catherine Summers, a photography graduate, author of the award winning blog Not Dressed as Lamb and my friend. I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to have a photoshoot with her. She chose the location, (South Kensington), and directed me to stand and sit where the light would be most flattering. The black, green and white backdrop couldn’t have been more perfect to showcase my draped floral dress.
The dress is from a newly-discovered, (to me), independent brand with the fabulously quirky name of “Alice’s Pig” A small, family business based in London, it has the most wonderful ethos and a charming back story. The clothes are deliciously divine and verging on the eccentric with a romantic, feminine twist. I’ll let the rest of the photographs speak for themselves.
Side by Side
You will of course recognise Michelle, Nikki and Annette, each of whom had a photoshoot with Catherine. I perhaps should say that it followed Tapas and copious Cava and in fact some might say we were holding each other up. I prefer to say we were simply supporting each other.
Behind The Scenes
Not only was it a privilege working with Catherine, it was wonderful to watch her photographing the others.
And here are Nikki, Catherine and Michelle, (before Annette had arrived), enjoying the aforementioned Tapas and Cava as well as each others’ company.
